My postman brought me something AMAZING again today, something from Etsy which is always a good thing. Something from someone very talented, from someone lovely, from nellie&elsie and I LOVE nellie&elsie. The items are always wrapped in old dressmaking patterns with such care. I am so lucky. Take a looksy.....
and inside, something made just for me, requested by me from a similar one I saw on the nellie&elsie blog site.
It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife - Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
It's a lovely tote and really big. I also received the pictured below Mr Darcy button. I have been waiting for these to appear in the n&e shop so I could buy one ( isn't it delightful?) but I was given it as a gift for being 'such a wonderful customer'. How sweet is that? I am so grateful and touched. Thank you special lady!!!
Here I am wearing a previous purchase of an Austen Corsage cleverly made from pages of Emma. I love the items in this shop and if I could I would send the world there to buy from such a deserving Etsian. Everything is so romantic. I love books so being able to wear one as decoration is a wonderful thing. I put it on today to cheer me up as even though the house gets terribly noisy when my boys are off school, when the weather is wild and they are bickering over Lego Star Wars on the Wii because they don't want to brave the outdoors, they are back at school today and the house is oh so quiet and oh so still and it always takes a little time to adjust. My package has definitely helped so with a heart filled I'm off to bake devilish Chocolate Muffins from my favourite indulgence cookbook, the Hummingbird Bakery book.
