This was hand delivered by our smiling Postie this morning
‘Ooooh! Look Siddy,” I cooed, pulling him off the happy Postie whom he was trying to lick to death, ‘you’ve got mail!”
I knew what was in it as our friend Claire had said she was sending something to Siddy especially for Christmas. Orlando waited patiently for the opening, not at all miffed that the gift was not for him.
Once opened the package revealed this rather cute wee Christmas doggie bag
and inside, rather more than I was expecting 🙂 I’m pretty sure I’ve seen the pretty pink star bunting before somewhere in Claire’s blog, I liked it very much and had no clue it was destined for me. I am a very happy Contented Crafter, this gorgeous star bunting made from the most deliciously soft yarn will end up in the revamped art room eventually – you will see it again!
Siddy and his gift
Oooooh! Siddy’s Christmas flower, made from some magical thing that makes petals – and packed full of colourful, tiny bells for stamens [apologies for the blurry shot- sigh!]
And Siddy wearing his Christmas flower which, alas, due to his extreme hirsuteness is difficult to see, but can be heard – he tinkles like Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer and is quite pleased with himself!
Siddy and I send a big hug to our friend Claire of MollieandClaire who made this lovely package and sent it off whilst coping with an awful water event in her house. If you like crochet and knitting and such like pop over – have a look at the waistcoat she is making her dad for Christmas – it is pretty fabulous!!
Thank you Claire – this is the most lovely and thoughtful gift and has begun our Christmas season most happily!
The same happy postie also bought another package with her – it contains this huge ‘Tree of Life’ wall hanging. I thought it might go in my new, revamped art room – but it is too fabulous and is going into my living room on my ‘faux wall’ – I shall find something else for the art room!
The art room is coming along extremely slowly due to a million interruptions, all of the most welcome kind – like assisting YD in her move to a new and exciting chapter of her life and old friends coming to stay and all the other stuff that takes up time at this wonderful season of the year. Tomorrow is curtain making day!!
Thanks for coming by today, I’m so happy that you did! 🙂
