I was lucky enough to win the giveaway that Rhiannon over at Remarquable Junque ran last week. I've never won anything from a blog before and I was super excited to see the package when I got home from work yesterday. However, I was not as excited as P, who had been waiting for me all day to come home and open it. And boy was it worth waiting for.
I got a whole tin filled with handcrafted goodness. It came wrapped in a lovely pillow case, which I have been patting and thinking about what to do with it. DH told me I could put a pillow in it (insert exasperated eye rolling here).
I received some very beautiful gift tags in a lovely fabric envelope.
A stunning brooch and necklace. I'm not usually a brooch fan, but this is awesome. You can see Rhiannon's post about it here.
A set of jeweled push pins with a little fabric rose to keep them on.
Some chocolatey treats - which J delighted in picking up and squealing (and at one point tried to eat them through the wrapper, she's a smarty that one).
But the piece de resistance was the gorgeous fishing game that P immediately claimed. One of P's favourite games is to 'go fishing'. She gets into the washing basket (her boat) and tries to catch things with a measuring tape. I decided to make her a fishing game for her birthday since she is so into her fishing, and now she has one! It is the perfect gift for my fishing mad girl.
P was so keen on these fish that she took them to bed with her, and instead of DH reading her a book, she insisted he go fishing with her. I feel very spoilt to have received such a lovely and well thought out package of goodies. Thank you very much. Head over to Remarquable Junque and check out all the lovely things that Rhiannon makes.
