Teacup pinpot

Hello lovely peeps!

Just a quick post this eve, because I can(!) and I just really wanted to show you my lovely purchase from the beautiful Mrs B.......
I feel like I'm doing a bit of 'show an' tell' like we used to do at school when small with the 'nature table' - bring your item in and talk about it..........so here we go........

Purchases for myself are somewhat few and far between in the ol' art and craft environment, not because I don't ever see anything that I think is great or amazing, I'm just normally purchasing gifts for other people.

Anyhow with the completion of my first month in 'the other job' (needs must an all that!) I decided I would treat myself to something that I'd had my beady eye on for a while and also 'needed', yes I did, really I did!

So here it is all the way from 'up north' of where I reside near the sea.................

*sigh* perfect package!! I love recycling, as my Mum knows.....eh? Mum won you that hamper didn't it hey!!!!! anyways................and the twine/string, I Love String!! How perfect is this package to receive in the post I ask you?!



Oooo ahhhhhhh inside glorious.................. extra bootiful teeny cup cases................



And starting to show itself....................love this fabric



And the big reveal! my very own and much needed and already in use too, teacup pin pot.........



Now perhaps its not every one's cup of tea (arrrrr see what I did there hehe) but I Love it, and I just wanted to share its loveliness with you all.

So thank you Mrs B and Much Love to you and yours too ;0 X

Mrs B does lovely things - I have a beautiful pinny with a pocket that she made, and a wonderful embroidered jam pot cover. She is very clever! And I do like your pincup pincushion - it's good to treat yourself (that's what I always tell myself anyway!).

I just adore that packaging. Newspaper and string is such a lovely combination, don't you think? Glad job is going great and you SHOULD treat yourself. What is the point of working if you cant? :O)
