Lovely gifts from lovely people

I thought I would share some pictures of the lovely gifts I received for my birthday
I have been very lucky this year, and because I have been blessed with some very talented friends, I am now the proud owner of some lovely homemade gifts.

Where to start??

patchwork heaven

This gift actually bought a tear to my eye. I love it so much.
This was made by my blog friend Little Teawagon. Our new friendship this year has been amazing!

CK sewing box (with hidden extras)

My little brother came up trumps this year. I know for sure that the Cath Kidston shop is not his natural habitat (he is a mechanic). The fact that he braved the store and even selected a  few treats to pop inside is a virtual miracle.

paper straws!!
This gorgeous school milk bottle is a gift from the lovely Ms Beth Taylor
We are both Aquarians and her birthday is on Valentines day. She knows me well! 

you all have to buy this book
This book is a book I didn't even know existed.
It was a gift from  Vanessa my fair,craft and coffees pal. 
I have already been inspired by this book and Littlest dashed off and created a 'Thumb War' picture immediately after having a flick through.
I will do a book review on it in a few days so you can have a peek inside.

another Beth gift and a Lapin necklace from Mr Betty

handmade specs case from vanessa....already in regular use

tin of treasure
 The above tin is a gift from OOB (Other Oooh Betty). She buys me stuff all the time truth be told.
Filled with goodies of joy including an Orla pen, cool recycled notelets and jot pad. 
I am going to use some of the papers in my doll house, watch this space.

 Let us not forget Barbara, as if we would!
Barbara was made by Mrs Teawagon and she comes everywhere with me (not Mrs T although I would not mind if she did). 

more CK
Lastly, for now, is my pretty T-Pot and jug from my good friend Little Laura.
Little Laura is very little and a bloody good mate.

So, as you can see, I did very well indeed.
I have the best friends and I feel very blessed.
