Lucky Me!

I received a lovely parcel in the post, it contained lots of lovely goodies!

A packet of Breakfast Tea, a beautiful new tea cosy and a beautiful china teacup and saucer.

Why would I receive such a goody pack, because I read other peoples blogs and one I like in particular belongs to 21st Century Housewife who was having a giveaway and I won!!!! I admire this lady immensely as she tries to become greener in her everyday living and I often leave her blog with ideas to try my self! So pop across and take a look.

The tea cosy is really welcome especially when you look at my old one

disgusting isn't it! I can tell you the practically the day I bought this, there had been a display in the window of the Oxfam shop (now closed) in our local town of knitted items, when I asked if I could buy one they said 'yes dear at the end of the week' so 9am on the last day of the week I went in and bought it and that was 20 years ago this December! Cost me £2.50, but I thought it was well worth it, and as you can see its tatty but still does a good job, infact it out lasted the old teapot!!!

The beautiful china cup and saucer is so pretty and delicate but to be honest far too small for a cuppa, one sip and it would be gone, so I have put it on the dresser with all my other lovely little nick naks!

Thank you so much Mrs L your gift is really appreciated!

I though I might have a giveaway, so I am off to have a route round to see what I can find, so watch this space.

Then I thought for a bit of fun I might set myself the challenge of posting everyday of November???? I won't promise that the posts will be long and meaningful, but there will be posts!!!lol!!!

Oh I LOVE those knitted tea cosies, I have an ancient pattern for one and I have made a couple... but must really get busy and make some more.
I made one for a prezzie for someone once and as soon as the parcel was unwrapped he put it on his head!
We are having a good time in Florida , won't be back to my oiwn computer until nearly the end of November so won't be able to leave loads of blog comments, but I shall try to post all about what we are doing in Florida whenever I can.

What a fabulous surprise - and so thoughtful too.

I love that pattern. I was just about to start another (modified) one for our coffee taller and a bit narrower!
I love your old one too. I had one that looked similar (in lots of scrap yarn) and a visitor hinted for it and secured it....! The young seem to be going for that sort of design now. Retro I think it is called!!!
