A wonderful surprise has just arrived on my doorstep. The lovely Morgan at Growing in the Fens had a giveaway to celebrate her 1000th post and when she was putting the items together, she did it in memory of her Mum. All the items are, therefore, things which her Mum would have loved.
There is a postcard from Morgan's holiday in Yorkshire with a lovely note on the back. Emery boards because Morgan's Mum always kept her nails neat and would have thought the spotty treasures quirky, I will just have to give myself a manicure now. A little tray for Mum's afternoon tea and biscuit - Morgan the lovely blue teapot reminds me of Cornish blueware aswell, and I will use this to carry mine and DH's mugs up to the office every day. A sweetie book, as Mum had a sweet tooth, chocolate always goes down well with my 3 boys too! and a Baking book which is just perfect for me to try and learn another cake recipe. I promise to share my results.
DH had to come and find out what I was squealing about as I opened my beautiful parcel. Morgan could you email me your address to firstname.lastname@example.org as I'd like to send you a proper Thank You card, but for now thank you very much. What a blessing!
