welcome to my boudoir...

The elderflower cordial was a great success - Mr Juicy loves it, I on the other hand can take or leave it, it has a bit of an earthy taste...

There was a satisfying 'plop' though the letter box this morning and my parcel from Fondant Kiss was transported up to the boudoir with a coffee and my camera...


Look at them all!!!!


A vintage dressing table set for my brush/mirror/comb set (remember those????)


Green and Blacks chocky, my favourite! don't think it will get chance to melt though...


A pair of delicate earrings - quite vintage looking me thinks!

 

and this! WOW - thank you so much! all cross stitch and beautifully framed. Too good for MY boudoir, it is going to have to go where everyone can see it!






And finally for today, another box finished for Folksy. The fabric is by Heather Bailey, it is called 'freshcut' and it really is a gorgeous colourway - I even ventured a little beading on the top!

I am thinking about the tutorial suggestion - I will probably try and get another few boxes made, then I promise I will work on one.

ooh, one last thing - Mr Juicy has just passed me the lid off his tea bags with this lovely quote on it...

"There is no trouble so great or grave that cannot be much diminished by a nice cup of tea" 
Bernard-Paul Heroux.

Enjoy the sunshine!

That's a very pretty box! I love that Heather Bailey print. And wow what wonderful gifts! I love the earrings but if I am being utterly utterly honest, chocolate always wins for me (lol).

wow! just saw your exquisite boxes on Deb's blogspot - truly gorgeous. You seem to have disappeared off my blog following list - wondered why I hadn't seen any posts from you lately! Off to remedy that now. You are a very talented lady!

You must half have some patience to make those boxes. They are so beautifully put together. I especially like the cross-stitch part of your parcel. I turn to tea all the time. x
