This really made me smile : )

I won a competition over on Indiesmiles a few weeks ago and I just picked up my prizes from the post office.

Look at my beatiful cat fridge magnet and butterfly wooden collage plaque from Linda.

They have travelled all the way from America and turned up so beautifully packaged it was really exciting to open them.
The cat is made from papier-mache and clay and is a tribute to Linda's dearly departed cat 'Peanut'. It's really cute and has little metal angel wings and a halo.
The butterfly wall plaque - is made from wood and covered in paper collage with a hand cut butterfly adornment on the front.
They have both brightened up my day - so thankyou Linda x

Angus arrived!

Today, the postman brought me a lovely surprise!

I had an interesting looking parcel delivered and as I opened it, a classy looking black box fell out all wrapped with a purple bow - gorgeous.

As I tentatively opened the bow and took the lid off the box, peeping from his little home of purple tissue paper, a wire Angus looked up at me!

He was a purple wire scottie dog brooch made by the very clever Emma Cressey (whose shop can be found here:

I had won one of her fabulous giveaways - isn't he gorgeous?

I'm going to put him on my handbag so he can go for a nice long walkies everyday!
