Special Post...

good afternoon!
yesterday i got a really special visit from our local postie.
she delivered a parcel from em @ teacupstoo!
i was looking forward to this parcel
'cos i'd won a set of four beautiful unique mugs from her just over a week ago
couldn't wait for them to arrive.
it was better than christmas!
em wrote me a lovely note
and enclosed a small tissue wrapped present with a tiny bunch of pressed flowers...sweet.
the parcel had heaps of amazing stamps all over it
which i've carefully cut off to keep.
by the time i'd finished unpacking,
the table was heaped with boxes and tissue paper...i was in child mode!
now, you can just admire them with me.
look at those peachy colours
gorgeous shapes
soft woolly goodness of the coasters that em made for me...
that's what was in the little present!
they go perfectly with my brekky mats
and have pride of place now on my mug shelf in the kitchen
so i can reach up anytime
just above the kettle
and choose a colour to match my mood...
or share the prettiness with my friends!
thanks em!
thanks also to 'the source' who gave em the mugs to giveaway.
i hope your week brings wonderful surprises your way...
