Presents in the post


I have received some beautiful post recently and I wanted to share it with you. The above wax flower crown you might recognise from my last post.

It was a bargain Ebay find, I got it cheap because the seller had only uploaded one picture and the description was very brief. It was photographed along side the picture of the bride but did not say that it was part of the auction, I was hoping it would be. 

When it arrived not only did it come with the picture it also was accompanied by the matching veil and this stunning box too! I am so happy to know that I own a small selection of this ladies special day, exactly how she wanted it stored all these years.

Aimée and I have been discussing how hard it is to get these wax flower crowns cheap. I guess they are especially sort after with the rising popularity of vintage themed weddings. If the finishing auction goes for a lot of money I always like to imagine it has gone to the home of an actual bride. They must have a lot more money than me to spend for their special day, and it makes loosing out a little easier.

Sadly the veil has seen better days as it's disintegrating. I'm going to save the corner lace and work into something.
Now on to my next postie present which came in the form of a surprise from the lovely lady Rebekah of Forgotten Stitches.
This parcel literally made my week. So kind and thoughtful. The postcard is even April themed which is when it arrived. I have never gone fishing before but I like to think that if I did, I would look like this. ;)
A beautiful 1930's hair slide that I haven't stopped wearing since it arrived. 
One of Rebekah's stunning Peach poppies, to add to my beloved Red ones. 
... and this beauty. Now all I want to do is get married. Sigh.

Rebekah I can't thank you enough for your beautiful parcel, it made me so happy and you are too kind.
Keep on the look out for Mr Postman as I'm in the process of packing up your gift from me. 

If you all haven't done so already go and have a look at The Forgotten Stitches shop and blog. Also check out Rebekah's Pinterest, I spend way too many hours looking at all her lovely inspiration and re-pinning. 

Hope you are all having wonderful weekends. I don't know about anywhere else but London has had some sun! Fingers crossed it is the return of our Spring.
