Happy Friday with Secret Sister

Good Morning Lovely Readers and a huge, warm welcome to new follower Hazel,

Today I feel very privileged and more than a little happy..

.... it feels like my birthday (except mine was dreadful, so this is far better)...

My "secret sister" arrived today and I am thrilled to bits. The "sister" didn't enclose a note, so I am not sure who it is (PLEASE, please tell me so that I can thank you), but she has thought so carefully about who I am and got it spot on. The contents are so 'me' and all beautifully chosen and considered.... shall I show you?

This is what was inside.........

Scot's tablet - my absolute favourite....

Wonderful, dreamy bath stuff (cruelty-free too).....
Chocolate (fair trade) ... my joint favourite thing....and drinking chocolate ... roll on Friday night - oh yes, it's going to be a jammies and dvd night with 'treats' 
Tiny little scented clay hearts - aren't they sweet. I am going to put these in a dish in the bathroom......
 Simple face wipes - perfect to go in my bag....
 An utterly fabulous sewing book with the most wonderful ideas and projects...
 like these decorated pillow cases...
 lace edged sheets...
 ... and this wonderful, covered footstool...

 And then this delightful home-made bag holder which fits in perfectly with my red and white house...and how did she know that I had been meaning to make one of these for ages.... 

Whoever she is, I can't thank her enough ... she has made my day/week/month......

Thank you

Thank you

Thank you.........

Did you join Carla's Secret Sister Swap?

We should do more of this, if it brings everyone else as much happiness as it brought me ....

Love Mrs Thrifty
