How do you spoil this girl? Easy really, you sign up with Chookyblue’s S.S.C.S and get a gorgeous girl, Annette from Jindi’s Cottage as your secret partner and taa daa, instant spoiling.
Annette went well and truly to the max when she made my gorgeous little ornament which I have hanging down on the shop Chrissy tree, along with her gorgeous tags. The little Snowman looks very comfortable surrounded by baubles, tinsel and a little swansdown just to add a bit of fluff
Yesterday I got to open the rest of the bundle that Annette sent – this lady had done a wonderful detective job and met all of my likes – to begin with there was chocolate – yum, not just a single flavour but a box of chocs all in a bar. Wrapped with the chocolate was a lovely mug rug - just perfect for my spot when working.
Next there was a long bundle but before I ripped that apart I found a smaller one on top – wellll, what a gorgeous note pad. It already has a spot in my bag ready for use and to show off. Isn’t the note paper pretty?
Isn’t she just delightful and aren’t I the lucky one? Just look at the stitching on her dress – here have a close up
I told you Annette was a lovely stitcher. Well that is me well and truly spoilt. This little lady has been named Jindi after Annette’s blog, jindiscottage and she is sitting next to Miss Faiths bunny, Miss Tillie that lives at Grandma’s house.
I didn’t have dolls, that I can remember as a child, so am now really making up for it and friends like Annette are helping fill the spot.
Chookyblue you chose such a super partner for me, thank you so very much – and Annette, I just sent you an e-mail – mwah!
Another gift I received was from Miss Dalrene. Darlene has been to my home a few times and when she found out that my man was to be away for a few days she booked herself in here for a night of chatting, pattern swapping pizza and the odd wine (of course). Darlene left a parcel behind for me for Christmas day – again another woman who knows me, and probably too well so she chose a book that I will most definitely make use of in the months and years to come.
How lucky am I? Very, I know.
I hope all of our blogging friends had a wonderful Christmas day. I was really lucky as DH who I wasn’t expecting so early, arrived home in time to demolish a Christmas feast.
On towards 2013 – let’s all make it a good one – I am certainly setting a few goals for myself and our shop.
blessings to you all
