I had a lovely surprise in the post at the weekend and, though it isn't craft related, it's such a lovely gift I had to show you all.
I'll admit that, once again, until I saw the address on the back I did wonder if I'd had another one of those brain fart moments and forgotten about something I'd been buying on eBay..... as you do. ;0) But the address immediately revealed that it was from the very kind and generous Barb (no blog). Here's what I found on opening up the bubblewrap bag:
Two books that I will definitely enjoy, as they are just the kind of thing I like to read, a fabulous postcard - just look at that dragonfly brooch on it! - and an intriguing tissue wrapped box. On unwrapping and opening it I found this stunner inside:
A fabulous geode with the loveliest feel to it. That pic just doesn't do it justice - it's waaay nicer in real life, with lots of sparkle. Barb found it in a crystal shop while she was on holiday in Dartmoor and says it said "Send me to Karan" so she did - after first cleansing it in the River Tavy. Such a lovely thing to do. :0)
And the geode looked so totally at home in the spot where I took its pic that it's now living there, alongside my House Angel.
Thank you again Barb for such a fab surprise..... and I love my geode. :0)
Thank you for visiting and for the lovely comments you leave. May you all be Blessed with good friends and kind deeds. :0)
