Some People are So Generous - Scrap Yard Box

Ahoy Peeps

I have been blogging a little over a year now, and since I started this blogging lark I have met a whole load of really lovely people.  Most I have not met physically but I did meet a few of you last year at The Stamp Attic.  

However, I have come to learn how many of you bloggers are so generous by way of time, tips, tutorials, as well as some beautiful gifts.  

One such blogging friend is Kate of The Scrap Yard. We have been following each other for quite some time now and have been known to send each other the odd e-mail, but last week I had a wonderful surprise from Kate. Here, I will show you.....


Isn't this box just awesome?  The photographs really do not do the box justice.  Though, look at that sunshine streaming through my window yesterday morning!

And how about this for the inside of the lid!!  A box full of awesomeness.

And then there is inside the actual box.....Goodies galore!


And then a beautiful little matching ATC, as well as a card which I forgot to photograph but I assure you it is gorgeous.

Now I am going to make Kate an ATC as a Thank You and hope Kate likes it almost as much as I love the box and ATC.  

In case you are wondering about the size of the box, it is an up cycled brie/Camembert box, with lovely skeleton leaves attached around the outside edge.

A beautiful box from a wonderful blogger.  Thank you so much Kate.  Such perfect colours to go in our Guest Room just as soon as we finish decorating it!!

I hope you like it and please leave me a comment.  Better still, why not pop over to Kate's blog and see some more awesomeness!!  You will not be disappointed.  Thanks again Kate!

TTFN 

Hettie.

Dear Sam,
You are very kind with your compliments. I am so glad that the box has found a nice place to land. It sounds like it went to the right home. I am glad that we are bloggy friends and hope that we will be able to share many more odd emails in the future.
I hope you find the time to join in on the TH tags challenge. I can't wait to see some amazing tags from you. Happy Monday!

How come the harrassessment you receive from Polly Polkadot didn't get a mention? I would survive without my 'Ask Hettie' sessions. Lovely gift and very thoughtful

I mentioned in my blog this week that it is like having pen friends or pals popping in for a cuppa. I love the blogging community. It's a great gift.

Have a good week
