Ok I had to tease a little.
So - what you have to understand is that artsycandice posted my package and we both watched it travel to china. Get stuck.
Travel all the way back to the states Get stuck
Then speed track to the UK !!!! Its taken over a month to reach me, but boy was it worth the wait.
Now.... because I have been waiting for so long, you can only imagine the frustration when I was sitting in my studio with a client and the postman walks around the back of my house to pop my parcel in my kitchen for me (hes such a sweetie he knows I cant come to the door when Im working). Can you imagine how hard it was trying to therapise someone when knowing my surprise was sitting right there !!!!!!!!
Anyhoooooooo In doors I rush, and armed with sissors, open up the front. To find my two boys staring at me
I had wondered why I had been asked what their favourite animal was !
And just for fun - here my monkeys are (they are tres odd children, dont know where they get it from !)
So - onto the feast
bought things first. Some snuggly socks, a book which is so amazing, I would have bought it myself if I had known its about making soul-mate dolls ! Im so using it at work. Then a beautiful diary, a very me candle, and some gum
What is not shown is a chinese puzzle box which my son has taken to bed because he was the only one who could open it ! - in it was a badge, a goddess pendant, some shells and a beautiful son token. Im pinching it back tomorrow and I think Im just going to leave all the treasures in there to open up when I need a smile or a hug
. There were also some chocolates..........eaten Im afraid. And a gorgeous crochet snowflake which I have forgotton to photo oooops
...... Gorgeous spirit cards to choose when I need one. I might pop these in the barn for my lovlies to choose when they need one
Feast your eyes on these goddesses, oh me oh my, a whole seasonal flock of wonderment !
Are these your own prints Candice
You clever thing. I know just the thing to do with these.......... and it will involve some of those beads Ive been showing you on facebook (dont tell no-one else though tee hee)
This photo does not do these gorgeous prayer flags and wall hanging justice. they will be draped on the beams in my barn and will lift me always x
HA !!!! I pinned these because Candice had pinned them. I LOVE THESE TREES. they are going to be on my seasonal table forever. I dont care that they are christmas themed, they will stay all year round. So there !
And finally my "stocking".
The most bling tastic. Indian coloured, draped skwooshy, boho gypsyesque bag you ever did see.......... Im going to store all my silk scarves in it and hang it in a prominant place in the house - whereupon everyone will mutter - where did you get that bag
By the way - yes that is sparkle in the photo
You my dear are a wonder. I love you dearly, and enjoy the blossoming of our friendship in the wee hours of my morning and your evening. Namaste x
