my unbirthday in Sept (and more)

I am a very lucky lady.  Postlady dropped a plump envelope in the  letter box the other day, with an un-birthday gift from Jacqueline.

Jacqueline is a very talented needleworker who also makes lace.  I feel very honoured, because it must take forever to do and need very good eyesight.   I was sent, my intial in silk thread, a bookmark in cotton thread and an embroidery kit .  Many thanks!

Also feeling lucky because I nabbed myself a vintage bargain at the weekend.  A local family were having an “everything must go” sale, selling contents of their mother’s house. Rest assured, not deceased, but moved into a nursing home where she can’t take all her belongings.  Anyway, I went along and saw this.

Couldn’t resist, and paid 30€ so it could come home with me.  It was made by a local furniture-maker, late 60s/early 70s.  I love the style, and the legs. Reminds me of the furniture my parents had during my early childhood.

  1. Jacqueline sounds like a sweet friend. She does very pretty work.
    My you got a honey of a deal on your vintage bargain. It’s wonderful.
    Love the fox, it’s such a cute diamond painting. I just ordered a couple more diamond paintings. They’ll arrive soon, I hope. I’m anxious to start a new one.
    Happy Crafting! 🙂

  2. What lovely presents! Your new storage unit is gorgeous. I presume it is a wardrobe on the left. Now all you have to do is find things to put in it and arrange a display on those shelves.:)
