Sending thanks to a lovely crafty Mama

I'm sure some of you know the lovely lady in question. A couple of weeks ago Shell had a lovely blog giveaway as she had been blogging here for a whole year. Her blog is one I enjoy visiting regularly as she is always making such lovely things. Anyway, it was my name that came out as the winner of her giveaway, which was a lovely surprise.

When asked what I would like from her lovely selection of goodies, I chose one of the key-rings - a really useful item and I've always admired these, especially the tree one. The parcel arrived on Saturday and was quite a surprise as it was much larger than a keyring, I thought. We were absolutely delighted to see it was not just the keyring, but also this lovely hessian shopping bag of felt foods for Imogen who has been rather poorly recently.

Our lovely package

These gifts brightened up a rather quiet week where we had both been laid up on the sofa with colds, chest infections and sickness. I can't tell you what huge delight Imogen has had playing shop now she is feeling much better and the keying is attached to my bunch of house keys and lovingly admired.

So, a big thank you to Shell, you made our weekend. Anyone who hasn't seen her lovely craft items should take a look here at her shop - www.handmadehaven.co.uk/
