British Invasion...


Despite the damp and rainy weather, my weekend was brightened when a little package arrived in the post. A few weeks ago I mentioned that I had sent Nell, who lives in England, a copy of the Australian magazine, Frankie.  I love reading Nell's blog - On The First Day of Marriage - and we've become quite good blog friends over the past few months. She had hinted that she made a little gift for me and was shipping it across the ocean so I was pretty excited to see what goodies it held. 

I first unwrapped the most delicious fudge but devoured it before I could even snap a photo. Then inside her pretty little package was the most adorable pint size purse - knitted in stripes with a little nautical gold button. It is the perfect size to hold all my spare coins and I have a feeling she'll be knitting non-stop when requests come in for more - they'd make perfect Christmas gifts!  So I'm sending a huge thank you to the very talented, very crafty Nell - now my only question is when are you coming to Australia so you can teach me how to knit?

Hoorah, I’m so glad it all arrived safely and you and J enjoyed the fudge. So good, right? I’m really pleased to hear you’re using the little purse too. You have ignited a love for Frankie and I’ve asked for a subscription to it for Christmas, so roll of January and my first issue! Lots of love to you, awesome blogger buddie x
ps. Next stop, Sydney...not sure if i'll get knitting needles through customs though. They're a fierce weapon after all.

I love the knitted purse - and the nautical button is just fab. She's clever isn't she!

What a sweet little gift! And a much cuter way to tote change instead of strewn across the bottom of my purse. Teehee.
