The Secret Society of Fairies

My Society of Secret Fairies package turned up. How beautiful it was too. I took some awful photos, as it was evening the light was not good, so I'm sorry about the quality of these.





My swap partner, Jackie of Wren's Nest, had parcelled it up in a pretty green tissue paper with a Wren's Nest sticker and gorgeous French inspired label.




I was completely spoilt. Jackie had sent some gorgeous quilting fabrics, including a vintage feedsack fabric, some beautiful vintage buttons, ribbons and trims, some delicious diet busting chocolate in my favourite coffee flavour, a pretty vintage handkerchief and two great magazines from the US. It's so interesting to see the different takes on Country Living. It is my favourite magazine here in the UK and I am off to the CL Christmas Fair next week in London so Jackie was inspired sending that.




And last but not least I feel really honoured to have one of Jackie's beautiful pincushions. Look at this lovely strawberry shaped pincushion, the workmanship is just breathtaking. Thank you so much Jackie it was a beautiful and very thoughtful package that really made my day.

Oh my, you two certainly were perfectly matched! What a brilliant parcel, you are are both shining lights of the SOSF!

I would love to go to the CF fair, one day... I think it would be impossible to go and not spend huge amounts of money!
