Post...

Morning,

I received a gorgeous "little something" in the post last week,





wrapped in tissue paper and tied up with string was this....



a beautiful yellow rose brooch from the lovely Steph from madmummy, isn't it sweet, and so  "spring"  thank you very much Steph it was very kind of you. x




Thought I'd show you the crinoline lady transfers not only did I get this one that has two ladies on and some pretty flowers


that says "given away with the May 1939 number of good news" on the top,



but also included was a second transfer with 3 little pigs, mice and gnomes on and priced at 4d (2p)



I'm realy thinking they're far too precious to use!!!



Although we had quite a sprinkling of "the white stuff" again on sunday, yesterday the sun shone all day and I played "house"!!!


Out come the packet of gorgeous red spotty napkins and I brightened up one or two places with them.

On tables,



on windowsills,



under tea pots,



below planters,



and under candlesticks to match the ribbons!!!



Wilfred Toadflax sits happily beside the daffodils, catapult at the ready!! Ohhhh I do love to play.



Then  Julie and I popped to the cemetery to take our lovely sister some pretties...

Hello Mr Robin...

Love Lucey xx

The yellow rose brooch is GORGEOUS! was it handmade?
....as are the pretty, yellow, springy flowers for your dear sister.
I think you may be right that the crinoline ladies deserve framing or something, they are that special.
I have the same polka dot doillies as you, they are so jolly....im obsessed with all things dotty! Maybe I am a bit dotty myself!

I remember embroidering a crinoline lady that my Nan ironed onto a cushion cover when I was only a girl, they used to a popular pattern. My Nan had a trunk where she kept all sorts of interesting bits for sewing projects. Maybe your transfers have come from someone else's trunk. What a nice thought.
