The lovely Lucy from Capture by Lucy has instigated a fab project this Spring. Whereby those that sign up, pledge to surprise the person they are partnered with a surprise gift. I thought this was a lovely idea to help brighten someone's day and did not hesitate to sign up and join in. It's lovely getting a surprise in the post isn't it, but also great to surprise someone else too.
I was keen to get my gift off to it's recipient as soon as possible and really enjoyed putting her gift together. I'd been emailed by Lucy to give me details of who the person was and what they liked and disliked, so armed with the imformation I set to work. Here is what I came up with.
There was a gardening book and seeds to plant as she loves gardening, Crochet hooks being keen to crochet. Chocolate because lets face it, everyone needs chocolate, tea's to sip and relax with and a little note book for putting her gardening and crochet idea's onto paper. I have it on good authority that she loved her gift.
Now, onto my gift, which arrived a few days ago. All I can say is WOW! It came form the smae person I sent mine to and boy did she do a great job of putting the most amazing surprise gift together for me. I love Cath Kidston type things, trinkets, home made things and Kim made me some really awesome stuff!
I was so excited to open my parcel and was delighted when I did so. Look at all that! Much of it made by Kim herself.
This Keyring is so cute. I love it! How clever is that.
These home made coasters are so 'sunny' and ideal for Springtime. Made by Kim too.
My card is lovely, as too are these beautifully scented hanging birds which I'll be hanging in my wardrobe to make my clothes smell of Lavender. So pretty.
This beauty bag is devine. It's lined with green and white spotty material and is so fab. Kim is obviously very clever. I love it.
I love my new mug and the Chocolate Eggs are going dwon well with the monkeys! There's tea too!
I'm always using lip palm, so again these are perfect for me! I'm indebted to Kim. Her parcel really did make my day and I'm thrilled I took part in such a fab #SpringtimeSurpriseProject. Thanks so much Kim and Lucy for organising.
