Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens

by - 18:44

Today when I got home there was a lovely parcel waiting for me. It was full of beautiful hat pins which I won in the Flashback Summer Valentine's giveaway. I have been a very lucky girl recently!

I love getting packages from people who wrap them nicely - it was hard to get it all in one photo, but the writing on the outside reads "...Brown paper packaging tied up with string ... these are a few of my favourite things"

The background on the pictures of the pins is a lovely lace doily that was also part of the prize. I will have to treat myself to some nice new hats to show off all the pins! I love that there is a mixture of practical and more fancy ones. The heart one is cute as a button and the red one with the black swirls is ever so stylish.

Many thanks to Emileigh for the great giveaway... I would love to hold one of my own so I will be keeping an eye out for a nice prize when I am doing my shopping!
