Happy Letters

by greenrabbitdesigns

Don’t you just love it when the postman brings happy letters. Happy letters are always fat, parcels really, you just know that there’s something nice inside!

Well I was lucky enough to get two in the one day this week!

The first one I knew was coming because I ordered a little treat for myself from my lovely friend Mia and it arrived in this cute little bunny bag. Mia knows what I like!!!!

It’s one of Mia’s pretty little keyrings with a sweet little needle felted owl.

I’ve clipped it to the outside of my bag as I think it’s much too nice to be hidden away inside, it needs to be seen.

Check out Mia’s Etsy Shop for more of her beautiful creations.

The second parcel was the result of winning a giveaway over at Kate’s blog, Harmony and Rosie. I couldn’t believe my luck when I read that I was the winner because I never ever win anything. I entered not expecting to win but happily for me, I did!

I won one of Kate’s beautifully made bags, it really is gorgeous and a lovely book full of Springtime crafts!

The book has some beautiful makes, just look at these bunnies…..

…..and these…..

…..and these!!!!

It’s not just rabbits though there are lots of other pretty things to make with a springtime theme.

Thank you so much Kate for such a lovely giveaway! 🙂

See more of Kate’s bags and her jewellery here.

On the knitting and crochet front, I have finished my aran scarf that I started at the workshop last weekend and…

…I’m still working at my crochet scarf, hopefully I’ll get that completed over the weekend.

Hope you all have a great weekend too! 🙂

Happy, happy, happy that the little owl flew all the way to you this quick! The bunny-book looks adorable too, and so “you” 🙂

Have the happiest weekend, dear friend!

Lucky you – I love that little keyring owl and the book looks full of interesting things to make too. You are keeping busy with your scarves and they look so cosy just the job in this chilly weather.

A post full of lovely treats, Vivienne! I love Mia’s pretty birdie very much, and the sweet spring book giveaway came to just the right home with all those little rabbits!! Your aran scarf is really lovely – so textured and soft, and I love the pattern. A nice thing in the post really sets the tone for the day, doesn’t it?! Have a sunny weekend. Helen x

Happy mail is just the best, I love it when the postman knocks on the door with something unexpected (or to be honest, something expected is sometimes just as nice!) Lucky you winning Kate’s giveaway, both bag and book look great, those bunnies pictured are adorable! Loving your finished scarf too, I could do with one of that, am just about to pop to town, and it is chilly here to say the least! Have a lovely day x

You lucky, lucky, girl Vivienne, what lovely things you unwrapped. Mia’s creations are the sweetest and the bunny bag she popped your owl in is so “you”. The bunnies in the book are shouting to be made…will you be getting the machine out..? It’s so sunny again here and your post has made it even more so! Have a great weekend,

So glad you like them Vivienne, I can’t think of anyone more suited to the book with all those bunnies. Thanks for the fab PR too, you’re so sweet! Lucky you getting Mia’s bundle of goodies too, what a fantastic change from bills! Love your scarves very much.

Happy weekend x

Hi Vivienne

How lovely to receive such goodies. All absolutely gorgeous I bet you were thrilled. Can’t believe how much I’ve missed in just a week away from blogworld.

Isn’t Vanessa amazingly talented. I won’t be posting about it until the end of March in case Millie sees it on my blog as it’s for her birthday.

Have a great weekend.
