Packages in the post

The weather can't make up its mind what to do today, one minute its hammering down with rain and bouncing hailstones off the windows and the next the sun is beaming down from the grey skies. Hmmm.
I want to thank everyone for their really lovely and sweet comments they left on my last post :) I really appreciate every lovely comment I get about my jewellery I make.  Its been ages since I last posted  so I haven't replied to anyone yet or had a look at some new blogs so that's my plan for the afternoon :)
My excuses for blog neglect are a) it was my birthday the week before last
b) I was ill last week and didn't do much except curl up on the sofa watching Ugly Betty

Anyway, today I came home from work in the lovely stormy weather we've been having to find a parcel waiting for me. The lovely Charlene from daintydresses had a giveaway last month to celebrate reaching 500 followers and I was one of the lucky people who won :)

She generously had a first second and third place winner, and I was the third random entry picked :)
These are the lovely things she sent me in the post that arrived today

I got a scrabble ring :) (excited,wanted one of these for ages) and a models own nail polish
and some sweets which she kindly added as a little extra, most of which I have already scoffed as I write this :)

I love scrabble rings. I think this is going to be my new favourite ring for a while :) It came in a sweet little purple box which I'm going to keep on top of my purple jewellery boxes on my somewhat overflowing chest of drawers

Models own nail polish. Its a lovely khaki kind of green colour. Waiting impatiently for my nails to get better so I can put it on, as  they are suffering from nail varnish overdose atm, and are generally quite weak :'(
Thank your for your lovely giveaway gift much appreciated :)

Just thought I would include some pictures of some of my favourite things I had for my birthday two weeks ago :) My little sister brought me this sweet little pink notebook

Ring from dollybowbow

I love this bag from River Island. I persuaded my mum to buy it for me about two months before my birthday as I liked it so much :)

Sew Cath Kidston book. I love cath kidston things and this book comes with material and buttons so you can make your own bag

Little fabric owls :) These weren't for my birthday my mum just randomly made some and I thought they were sweet

Gorgeous lilac scarf from my aunty's shop Indigo moon
She sent me a ring as well but I've got a few new rings (surprise he he not XD) so I thought I might just show them altogether later on

Really cute vintagey sewing box which is cool for keeping things more organised for when I make jewellery
I also had loads of things to make jewellery with as well, so it is my plan to make more things. The only trouble is I think I love jewellery a little too much as I want to keep everything then :/

Just a quick link, I found this blog yesterday and I love it. She's doing a 30 day clothing and accessory challenge which I think looks quite fun :)

love and kisses
