This Design was based on the 'Penelope' style with a change to rectangle format and a change of colouring to pretty pink. Love it!

"Oh yes, I concur! How do I receive parcels of perfect loveliness in the mail too?" I hear you say, well..you will have to wait until next time 'The Lady that blogs' AKA 'Yes Dear' organizes a 'gift swap'.
I was involved and it was a wonderful experience. Basically, you signed up with the lovely Angela from Yes Dear!: The Lady that Blogs, you are given the task to purchase for another lucky swapper with the following conditions.
- Minimum spend $50 (including registered or express postage to ensure a tracking number), you can spend more if you wish but the tracking number is not negotiable.
- Item(s) MUST be sourced from a handmade designer in Australia or New Zealand.
- If you yourself are a handmade designer of course you are most welcome to include some of your wares BUT you will need to also purchase from another party. This is about injecting some cash flow into, and creating some further exposure for, the local handmade community at large.
I had the tremendous fortune of being gifted by Angela herself and whoa what a bounty! Ok I should have photographed the package all neatly wrapped up in the vintage dressmaking patten paper (tops idea - will use and make my own) but I was in a pressie frenzy and alas, it was too late...
Included in my perfectly selected pack (photographed above) was:
B Broach from Return to sender
Infinity knit grey scarf (am wearing it now) from Burrowed
Earrings silver and mustard yellow from bellebird
Wooden car brooch by Naomi Murrell
Cute card from Nomuu
Check out the brilliant sketch of the bird - an original just for me from Angela!

This one started with the GORGEOUS image. It was just calling out for something simple and sweet.
Kind of retro. The inspiration came from the bold colours in the photo but would work just as well with a black and white close up.
A very lucky boy with a retro aeronautical theme.
