Uncontained Excitement

Are you ever so excited you just cannot contain yourself? That is how I was yesterday. A parcel was delivered and I was so anxious to open it but I had to drive my daughter to her exam and had to wait until I got home. Then when I did open it, I just wanted to stare at it. Oooh, so lovely.

The Cath Kidston flowery dusters I have been drooling over at so many blogs. Look at that pretty pattern. Perhaps too beautiful for dusting? (I don't even want to take them out of the package)

And what is this? Sarah Smith? Does Sarah have a little crush on Cath too? Mmmm. But how cute are they?

And, finally, BBC Homes and Antiques. How fabulous is that? Not easy to find here and when you do it is well over a month behind.
So here is the story of my lovely gifts. I am reading a very cute little blog called Flossie and Tom. She blogs about her lovely dusters. I comment on how beautiful they are along with all her other pretty goodies and what does she do? Writes me back and offers to send me some. How sweet is that? After a little swap arranging, here we are. Aren't we all so lucky to belong to this wonderful place called the blog world?

Thank you so much, Sara.

How lovely is that. What great goodies. I have some CK dusters and they are so pretty I intend to make dining chair seat cushions with them. xxx

Will have to get some of those cute CK dusters. They're much too lovely to dust with! What a lovely parcel! I can definitely see why you couldn't wait to get home!
I have never been involved in a swap yet, but would love to. How are the one to ones arranged? I tried to join into a mug swap, but was too late for this time,but may be able to be included in the next one.

Have a great weekend : )

How happy are those cleaning cloths? I just know they'll make cleaning day much more fun! I just cannot imagine getting them dirty, however! Toooo cute! It's the small things that give us so much pleasure in life, isn't it? Love your tole tray too! I have loads of them.....about 26 or so.....one of these days I'm going to take some pix of them. I enjoyed my visit here!

Warmly,
