Craft, stitchin' and sustainable living

As Bianca from Goodnight Little Spoon would say - incoming!

I have received my second parcel of amazing goodies in a week. Can you believe it? I entered a competition run by Monica at the Creative Beast, and lo and behold - I won!

I've gotta say - this crafty woman is incredibly generous. Not only was she giving away vintage crafty goodies from her grandma's collection, but she went to a massive effort to package it up beautifully - and pay the not-so-cheap price to send the box all the way from the US to Australia.

First, everything came in this red carry bag, as pictured above (uber useful).

The prize I won was vintage knitting needles, some yarn and some other knitting related goodies. This wasn't even all of it!

As if that wasn't kind enough, Monica looked at my blog, discovered that I have an undying love for tea, and added a whole bunch of tea related gifts to the box.

So, considering this and my last post, I'm feeling pretty spoilt right now. If it's any consolation to you empty mailbox owners out there, it is my birthday week, so I'm just counting these as 'extra' birthday presents.

Oh, and if your mailbox is empty, consider writing to Bianca at Goodnight Little Spoon, she is bound to write back and with decorated paper and envelopes to boot.


  1. Happy Birthday Britt! I'm so glad the package arrived in time to help celebrate your birthday. I do hope you enjoy the lemon ginger tea - it's one of my favorite flavors =-)

    Your pictures make the giveaway goodies look fantastic Britt - thanks for posting about them! And for linking to Goodnight Little Spoon - what a darling blog for letter writers...

  2. Aww, thanks very much for the shout out lady! That package looks incredible. I'm pretty sure it's time I picked up some knitting needles and taught myself the craft. Hope your birthday week was grand :D I am very lucky to receive good mail just about every day - some packages you open and they just make you feel good all day. I really appreciated the comment you left on my last post, it meant a lot to me. I think it's definitely time to seek out some help. I actually realised the other day that Launceston has one of the few Headspace clinics in Australia, and they're meant to be very good. I laughed that you apologised for 'getting mothery'. Thanks lady :)
