Good post day
I'd been expecting the first, though I had no firm date for its arrival. It was my four perfumes in the 4160 Tuesdays 'The Mystery of the Materials' series, all wrapped up neatly like little bonbons. I opted for the package with four 9ml bottles plus a storybook, though they did say the book would probably arrive later than the perfumes. Each perfume will have its own story inspired by the mystery stories of the 1930s. In a way I'm glad they've arrived before the book, as it will give me a chance to assess each one independently of any narrative. I'll do a review later in the month.
The other parcel was for a giveaway I won a while back, from Jennifer at Little Yellow Cat. She'd been busy and I'd forgotten it was on its way. I don't mind waiting for things; I'm pretty patient, plus I always feel if one thing doesn't turn up, another very well might. Jennifer included some lovely vintage buttons and postcards of Australia in the parcel, but the big attraction for me was the patterns. There was a packet of 'Semco Reliable Transfers' - Aussie embroidery transfers! One, of a basket of flowers tied with a ribbon, is especially pretty.
I hope the weather is not as awful where you are - or if it is, that you too have had a good post day.
