My Beautiful Presents

These beautiful things arrived for me today from Beata of Red Point Tailor, all the way from The Netherlands - she was my swap partner for the International Craft Swap.  Aren't they gorgeous?  I'm delighted, especially as I usually have trouble with the fitting of hats (I must have an odd shaped head!).  This one fits perfectly.  She sent some lovely jewellery too.  Sorry about the poor photo - I was trying to get the light shining through the glass necklace but its been so windy today and I couldn't keep it still enough!   I have some matching earrings too - I feel so spoiled.  Last, but not least, a set of inspirational magnets - they say exactly what I feel a lot of the time, so thanks so much Beata.  It's great to know you!





This is a better image!  From Beata's website - I'm sure she won't mind me showing you.

  3. Crumbs it was so windy here too! Had to laugh at the adorned boob shot. I wear a lanyard with a name tag for work and this is the look I often sport, though far less decorative!
