Lucky Ducky

Hoorah we are back up and running!! We may have sacrificed a few comments but its good to have you back blogger old friend.  Its that pesky Friday 13th doing its dastardly work. So time to sneak in a post in case it all goes tits up again...

I was a lucky ducky to win a fabulous giveaway prize from the lovely Deb at bee happy  so when the postie knocked at the door yesterday I knew it must be some goodies...

All beautifully wrapped but they didn't stay in their tissue for long...

First opened was this lovely handmade corsage and the cutest button bracelet - love love love them! 

Then the big one:

This fabulous bag :o)  Deb you are so talented!  I love the little added detail:

It has already had its first outing at the charity shop yesterday, and will be taken on many more!  Thanks so much Deb love it all :o)

So it would be rude not to share a least one of my charity buys so here it is:

 Check out the amazing deco packaging!  This little handy sewing kit was going to be mine for the little box alone but there was still some bits inside:

 Vintage sewing thread and needles still wrapped in tissue in their paper sleeve:

How much you ask....50p :o)

I'll share some more finds over the weekend (bet you are all so excited lol). 

In my blogger deprivation I've also signed up to twitter!  I'm still trying to work the thing out, feel a bit like my nan being given an internet lesson, but if you want to witness my twitter naivety then follow me at @loves_elvis.
