Today the postman came and dropped of a box of lovelies from my giveaway partner Vikki from http://giddystuff.blogspot.com/ it was all wrapped and presented beautifully with ribbons, hand stamped tissue paper and hand made labels. I slowly savoured the wrapped items and then began a tearing frenzy – ooh the excitement was just too much.

 Firstly came a little something vintage or with vintage style - a wondeful embroidered garden scene tablecloth just the thing for my dining room table when I have company.

A little something with a shabby chic style in the form of this very wearable felted heart with buttons.  

A little something thats full of colour and scrummy gorgeousness - a pair of vintage knitting needles and some tartan and yellow ribbon.
A sweet little suprise - yummy Hershey bars - must keep mother-in-law away from these as Hershey is her favourite chocolate and we always have to bring her some back when visit America
Finally last but not at all least is
 A little something brimming with loveliness - and lovely it certainly is a porcelain posy brooch - how did you know I have a collection of these have you been peeking in my house.....

Vikki I love each and every item that you have obviosuly spent so much time picking and would like to say a big thank you to you and to Tilly Rose for taking the time to organising it.  This was my first giveaway swap but I don't think it will be my last.

For those of you with eagle eyes yes I mixed up the labels when photographing the items - I did tell you that it was a tearing frenzy....
