Gifts Galore!

I got up this morning to find a large parcel from the lovely Helga! at my front door. Yay!

In case you don't know, Helga! is a most hilarious and colourful lass from NZ, not to mention a great singer too, so go check her out!


Here's what she sent me; a so-pretty fan set complete with original box, cute embroidered-cover notebook, a set of salad servers (how did she know I didn't have any?!), two purses (which VB snaffled immediately), a chocolate brown shift dress (which I'll show you when I wear it), and a very pink floral bedspread and pillowcase set for VB, which provides the background for this pic.


VB likes this set so much! As you can see it's currently going everywhere with her. She's discarded her usual blanket, which was thrown unceremoniously over the side of her cot in favour of the new pretty.

Before bed, she gave it a good test run and hunkered down on her beanbag with it. I think it's the fabric that appeals to her, she loves fabric that is lightweight and chiffon-like.

What a lovely gift to receive, I allowed myself a day off today due to being seriously tired and it was a fab pick-me-up. Thank you so much, Helga dear.xx.

Hello! I KNOW I have your email somewhere but for the life of me can't find the address, so could you please email ME so we can talk about the sunglasses you saw on my blog (the ones with the butterflies), please? The ashtray has been sold, FYI. I'd be grabbing that bedspread right out of VB's tiny mitts--beautiful!

Awww, you girls are all so sweet, sending each other parcels of goodies from one continent to another. What did we ever do before the wide wide world of web - we would never have known each other! And I concur - that gorgeous littlie looks so cute wrapped up in the pretty pretty.
