The next parcel was from China - my eagerly awaited woven garment labels from a new supplier, and they were exactly what I wanted. And tucked away with the order was this little gift.
We had been given an apron with this design by our daughter some time last year, and now I think I will turn this into my name tag. It has become my catch phrase.
And so finally I opened the last little parcel. I already knew what was inside - an adorable pair of hair clips - pink, of course, as I had won a giveaway on the blog of fellow BrisStyler, the lovely Katie of Kitty Boo Boo.
But what I didn't expect were two of the prettiest headbands and another pair of hair clips, all in co-ordinating colours.
There was a message from Katie, saying that she couldn't leave the others out. What she was referring to were our four little granddaughters. I was speechless (and Mr Fudge will tell you that that doesn't happen very often in my waking hours). If you take a look at her shop you will see what a versatile artisan she is. Thank you so much for your incredible generosity, Katie. Our little darlings will look adorable wearing their new hair clips and head bands. I only hope they don't fight over them!
Speaking of hair clips, during our BrisStyle first anniversary lunch I bought some hair clips from the talented duo Em and Bel (both very pregnant) of EmbelIsh. These clips became part of the bling hidden in the drawers of the musical jewellery boxes we gave the two four-year-old cousins on their joint birthdays. They fell in love with them and the next day when we met up with the Sydney branch of the family for lunch, there was Emily proudly wearing hers - and very cute she looked too.
Well, I've had my fill of surprises - all of which were well worth the wait. I wonder what the postman has in store for me next week?
