It is a good friend

who can turn up with a bunch of seed heads and say "I thought you would like these"

It is a good friend who can turn up and say "There were some still in flower but I thought you would prefer the dying ones."

She is a good friend because she was right... I think they are beautiful! Thank you Patsy!
The other thing to turn up today was... THE BOX!!!! Not easy to get into and I haven't decided what I'm going to take out yet but I'll keep you posted.

And I think it is a good friend who can send me a note in the box with a donkey dressed in a Sainsbury's dress on the envelope! (Even if I haven't even met her yet!) Good friends know what you like and how to make you laugh!

Still lots of time to leave a comment on my last post... go on... you might win!

  3. Ooooh the box!!!! You have the box!!

    Love the donkey in the Sainsbury's dress - that Trash is such a fab artist.

    I like the seed heads too - will you draw them, or stitch them, or shake them over your garden?

  6. Oooh! The box, the box, the box!!!! I can imagine it is getting increasingly difficult to open with all its layers of sellotape - I wonder how many metres have been used so far?

    Love Trashy's drawing - she's fab!

    Great seed heads too.

    Looking forward to seeing what you choose from the box.

  7. I am nearly exploding with excitement over the box - surely it must be coming here soon - or maybe I should cheat and drive to yours for a peep!
