mail loot + my brooch!

Yesterday, I picked up the large pile of mail that had been collected while we were away. There were the usual bills and such, but also this lovely loot ...


You might think that these two lovely items came from the same person, but one of them came from the USA and one from Sydney, Australia ...


I can't believe my luck ... this is my brooch from Jess at A Life so Peachy, who (unbeknown to me) was my partner in the Flowerpress Brooch Swap. I am so impressed with the design and thought behind this brooch. I'm wearing it today! Be sure to pop over to Jess's blog, especially to see the amazing layer cake she just made!


A few weeks ago I spotted this beautiful framed embroidery over at June at Noon's etsy store, and I knew it had to be mine. It is so beautiful - the design and the colours. Thanks Gretchen - I love it!

I hope the postie brings you something nice today!

both lovely. I'm amazed nearly everyday the context with which crochet can be used.

Hi Nic! They do look like they have come from the same person don't they?! I'm really glad you like the brooch- it was a tad intimidating making something for you but I'm glad I got there & that you like it! Jx
