Happy Post

I've had some lovely post since we got back from Wales and thought I would share it here. Just before we went away I had a phone call to say that I had won a raffle prize at the Moulton Mill Quilters Exhibition that we went to in April. By the time we got back from holiday I had forgotten all about the phone call and wondered what on earth the parcel could be that was waiting for me at the Post Office.


I had been told to expect a bag but when I opened the package there were 2 bags! I hadn't expected the lovely drawstring bag with all the extras. Aren't I lucky?! Unfortunately there was no contact address with the parcel so I can't thank anyone so if anyone out there knows the Moulton Mill Quilters please tell them I am delighted :o)


The second piece of happy post was my order from Moo!



Don't look too closely at them as there's a (not) deliberate error! Oops! I got the address of my blog wrong! Duh! That apart I am really pleased with the cards and they are a great way of carrying examples of my creativity around with me. I have to admit I wasn't going to bother ordering anything from Moo as I don't really need business cards but they made me an offer I couldn't refuse and now I've received them the quality is really good (no affiliation).


Finally, I had a wonderful letter in the post today which gave me a lovely boost in a yucky week.



My very sweet 4 year old niece has sent me a beautiful 'Thank You' card for a little present I sent her before we went away. It's far brighter and more sparkly than my awful photo shows it and I love the butterfly she has drawn flying above the flowers. I am ashamed to say that we haven't seen Evie since she was quite tiny and it's not as if she lives in another country! We will have to remedy that!

Lots of lovely post Julie. Hope you're not feeling too awful.

What lovely goodies - Evie is obviously going to be talented too. Love Dorothy's waistcoat on your previous post.

Julie said...

Thank you Heather. Evie does love working with her pens and crayons so maybe there's something in the blood? Funnily enough my Dad, her Grandad, hid his creative light under a bushel. Late in life he showed a talent for oil painting but regrettably he didn't pursue it.


Everything lovely - I especialy like your moos - very vibrant! Have a lovely weekend, will email xx

Ooo lots of lovely cheery news! Great!

It's nice when little ones make thank you cards. I don't get them!!

My God-daughter had her First Communion last year and Kevin and I sent lots of presents and a card. But we couldn't go on the day. We never heard a thing! No thank you, nothing. We never even saw the photo's, even though they have been over to visit us since.

Then one day Jo, her mum, let it slip that some relative had moaned about no thank you card. Jo said, "I don't care! They couldn't be bothered to come on the day so I why should I be bothered to thank them?"

I guess she forgot we were in the same boat as her relative!
