The kindness of friends

Had a rough time of it lately but the kindness of my friends have put a smile back on my face and has made me realise How Blessed I am.
I made these for my friend Nadine who has recently got married....
 She looked amazing in a vintage dress so these clips made from Vintage brooches and glass pearls from an old vintage necklace seemed appropriate!
So in the post this morning I was delighted to discover a box on my doorstep with some Beautifully wrapped packages in it!
It was a shame to open them but of course... I did!!!!
Some yummy Cherry Green & Black's ( I'll have you know!)  chocolate bar, a pack of floral napkins that I actually stopped myself from buying the other day!, a cute cherry ring binder and a pretty teacup candle from her wedding that Nadine had made herself!! 
Did you notice these pretties?
Nadine made these herself they smell all lavendery ( yes its a word!) and are in all my fave colours!
Keep a look out soon for her blog and website launching soon with her all of her sewing pretties! 
Thanks so much for the present hunny, it put a big smile on my face this week xxx
Friends are the family you choose x
Until next time
