Oh My Gosh !!!!

Several weeks ago Carolyn had a give away on her blog and I was lucky (and I really mean that) enough to be the winner.
Well yesterday when I went to the PO box there was this big parcel waiting for me--it wouldn't fit in our normal PO Box so they left a key in it so I could go to another box and open it to get my parcel out.
I was dumbfounded when I saw this package inside the box.
I wondered what on earth could be inside.



I couldn't believe my eyes.
3 big packages filled to the brim with the most wonderful treasures I have ever seen.

This one was full of Autumn tones--fabric-- papers--fibres--beads--ribbons--embellishments--all there waiting for me to caress.

Then there was this purple one--yummy purple of every shade-tone or whatever it is called.
Again-fabric-papers-threads-ribbons-beads-ephemera-oh the joy----


A close up------




Some hand painted papers-(sorry about the photo but you can get the idea of what it is like)---





Another purple packet-----this one had purple wire in it and silk cocoons and some gorgeous purple flowers with glitter (in the bottom right hand corner)






A close up of the hand made beads and silk cocoons---





Now when I won the give away I thought that I was winning this gorgeous little heart.
I ask you --Am I the most lucky girl to have won this wonderful-amazing prize.
Eat your heart out Janet B--all this purple stuff-----



I bet Australia Post didn't see this little beauty tucked away inside.



Christmas sure has come early at my place.
Thank you so much Carolyn you are indeed a most generous person and I will treasure every little item in this wonderful gift.
