Kindness

Thanks Anairam! I loved my package so much I wanted to show people the beautiful things inside. I felt like it was my birthday yesterday. I love the different airmail sticker and the pretty stamps.This badge is made from Shwe Shwe fabric. One of the ways it is thought to have got its name is from the noise it makes as it moves. If you say the words it does indeed sound like swishy fabric. I wore it to school today and got lots of interested comments. This is Anairam's paper rosette which I want to make more of immediately! I will wear this on Monday Anairam!This is a beautiful pencil case by Heather Moore, a South African designer, who's design label is called Skinny La Minx, which is just a great name. I love the design and this green is my favourite sort of green. I have a wall in my flat which is this kind of colour. And of course, I love birds! This is a tea towel by the same designer which I am not going to use as a tea towel! It is draped over the honeysuckle as I was trying to get a good picture!
Below is something which Steven included in my etsy order a while ago now and I thought I would show you. I like the little cats-like an Andy Warhol puzzle! Thanks Steven!
In this thank you for your kindness post I also wanted to show you Raven's little friend that came to stay. He was made by Sonia's father and I am touched that she sent him to me. Thank you Sonia! You can see that he is completely at home.

I am so glad my package arrived safely and that you like the contents! Oh dear, I do not think it is a good idea to wear the paper rosette - as I told you I got very odd looks when I wore mine!

Oh isn't parcel post fab?! It makes me feel exactly like a kid at Christmas but more so! The delicious anticipation as you unwrap things and then the pleasure of the lovely goodies inside - perfect! And I love making up gifts more than just about anything else. I think gift giving is one of the best things people EVER invented. Enjoy all your little prezzies! :)
