Hello again and a lovely surprise!

Well, we're back from our little jaunt away but I'm not caught up enough to blog properly yet. I'm still in the middle of loading 400+ photos onto my laptop! Not to mention 200+ bloglines to read! OMG, I really must cut back on some of this blogging lark. Anyway, enough of that, I had to pop in and show you the beautiful, amazing post I received today. A few weeks ago Emma, aka Silverpebble, set up her website and had a draw to celebrate - I was one of the lucky runners-up. Now I've received my beautiful prize I feel like a complete winner!

When I opened the Bubble envelope this lovely wrapping paper greeted me - Emma, you must have known I love seashells. I am going to try some image transfer with this soon.

I opened the paper and found a very pretty little box containing this delightful necklace made by Emma. The colours are very delicate and I love the silver drop and the detail at the clasp.

Emma had included a card and a lavender wand which looks lovely and smells delicately of lavender. I'm going to have a go at making some of these myself. Meanwhile, this lovely wand is in my drawer.

At the bottom of the box was a slip of paper as you can see above. I did indeed peep........
Underneath the paper were these beautiful dried flowers and above it were a selection of vintage buttons and a lovely shell which I can't wait to use in a special project.
Thank you so much Emma for such a wonderful gift and for the pleasure of reading your delightful blog.
I'll be back in a day or three with a proper update when I've loaded up all the holiday pics. See you soon!
