Spoilt Scarlett

This week I've been well and truly spoilt by my friends in blogland. I've been lucky enough to win 3 giveaways and had a fabulous special surprise parcel. So I need to dedicate this little post to these wonderful bloggers.

The gorgeous Vix from Vintage Vixen blog fame sent me the most amazing package of  goodies. I was totally blown away by the thought that had gone into the treasures she sent.  So what did I find in my parcel?....

Stunning turquoise stratton compact and swallow bracelet (the bracelet has received many a compliment since I've been wearing it - beautiful)

Kitsch-tastic deer trinket pot, Vix did note in her card to check out his angry expression - love it!  Makes me smile every time i look at him and his scowl.

Super cute lace fingerless gloves  - no lady should be without (ive realised how tricky it is to take a hand picture without said hands looking manky or at a funny angle).

And finally to top off the already amazing parcel, Vix sent me this 1956 copy of Blighty magazine.  Its chock full of cheeky stories and minxy women - right up my street :o)  Thank you so much Vix, you know how thrilled I am with all my goodies.

Next up was a fabulous giveaway win from the fabulous Em from vintage-sweetheart.  The parcel came all the way from Australia and was such a treat to open.  Here's the treasurers I won:

Very cute half apron and hankie, vintage tie, wire necklace and ring blanks (I'm totally going to get my craft on with these).  There is a fabulous Palissy pinecone print trinket dish and the sweetest little blue and white hat. 

Love it all thanks so much for picking my name out the hat Em!

The final parcel travelled the seven seas to reach me and probably has a tale to tell about pirates and mermaids.  It was sent by our lovely Nelly of My Friends Call Me Nelly fame.  I won a great giveaway she hosted and the prize I picked were these nutty salt and pepper pots:

You cant get kitscher than big eyed squirrels that dispense your salt and pepper. Love them!  Nelly was also very naughty and included a lovely set of Australian goodies:

They included a handcrafted Australia note book, Koala magnet, kookaburra print, 'Waltzing Matilda' hankie and stickers (Finley has already had these stuck to his face). She also sent something special for the little man:

 This absolutely amazing wooden sail boat mobile.  I adore it and it goes perfectly in his nursery.

Thank you so much Nelly, all the gifts are beautiful.

And finally a thank you to Flo for her toe tag mysteries giveaway. I was lucky enough to win a Toe Tag murder mystery game "Tommy Gunn's Club" which Flo emailed over to me.  Its amazing how well thought out the game is and you really do get everything you would need (bar the guests) to hold a fabulous party. I now need to get 15 of my friends and family all together to give it a go - will be mayhem ;o)

If you haven't checked out these lovely blogs yet make sure you take a peek, you wont regret it. 

Hope you are all having a fabulous Friday and hey its going to be sunny this weekend :o))

  6. Whoa - it's all just too much! Parcels are so exciting, I find myself looking around the charity shops thinking "Scarlett would like that, ooh - that's right up Jem's street, or I bet Vix would look good in that" more and more, and thinking I'd have as much pleasure sending them to a good home as I would buying myself something.
    There's so much love in blogland, it's brilliant!
