Grateful for post

This week Pebble has been sick, along with almost every other kid across Australia during this first week of winter, I’m sure. Snotty faces and chunky coughs are the norm around here, and I’m over it! The doc says there is not much we can do but wait it out. That’s why I am grateful, grateful, grateful for gorgeous packages in the post – they break up the monotony of another broken sleep, another pile of tissues, another uneaten meal.

I was recently very lucky. Three times lucky! I won three blog giveaways in the space of three weeks. First I won Wedding’s, Babies, … Everything’s emvee necklace giveaway. THEN I won About a Bugg’s Sienna Rose print giveaway. THEN I won Wouldn’t It Be Loverly’s ‘I love paper’ giveaway! THEN I bought a lotto ticket. I didn’t win. Meh.

How fun are packages in the post?! They light up a dark day, I can tell you. Check me out in my emvee necklace:

And how pretty is this package from Cat @ Wouldn’t it Beloverly?


Cat’s handmade cards are divine, I can’t wait to give them out to loved ones – not to mention joining in with Claire’s handwriting challenge, as promised. The Paper + Craft book is simply beautiful, with so many gorgeous ideas. I can’t decide which one to do first! Perhaps the Birdie Mobile – or the Moustache Drink Toppers? Too, too much fun.

I still have another package to look forward to from Sienna Rose. I will be sure to share it on Instagram :)

Have you received anything lovely in the post lately?

  1. Lucky you! Love the necklace. My mum is always sending me packages.. always stuff for the girls though.. Although I still very much enjoy opening up the parcels. Mum can’t resist cute little girl outfits when she’s out and about so her granddaughters are very spoilt! Xx

  2. Those earrings are gorgeous Kylie! You look fab. After the week from HELL, I got an email yesterday to say I’d won a purse from Sportscraft! Gives you a nice little buzz doesn’t it? Rx

    1. Sneaky hubby! My hubby almost never buys anything online (or at the shops, for that matter!), so it’s almost always good news for me. I do hate it when the psotie gets the address wrong though. One day I had a lovely big package on my doorstep… only to find it addressed to the neighbours.

    1. They had somehow stuffed this one into our rather large letterbox! Thank goodness it was safe in there and it didn’t rain too much today. That is one problem with parcels, isn’t it? Sometimes I HAVE been home and the delivery guy is in such a rush they didn’t even ring the bell, they just left a slip under the mat. I was MAD!

    1. I’d love to try some proskins, I wish someone would post some to me to try out. I see all these people running around in them – maybe that’s where they get their energy? I hope you have fun using them, when you can drag yourself outside :)

  3. Snail mail packages are the best! What a wonderful way to brighten up the day.
    And yes, those nasty colds. I wish they’ll go away! We’ve already been through two rounds over here and I’m bracing myself for a third….
    You look just gorgeous in that necklace too.

    1. Will the cold and flu ever stop!? Winter used to be my favourite season before I had a bub. Thanks so much for the compliment x

    1. My husband is a bit the same, but I’m sure he’s appreciating me winning these things rather than buying them ;P

  4. Oh how lovely… Yes, I had miss 7 home from school this week – one of the main reasons I detest winter! Getting stuff in the post is way exciting! Cheers, Mez

    1. There is something special about old school mail, isn’t it. That extra bit of effort is lovely.

    1. Thanks again Cat. My step-mum loved getting one of your cards for her birthday today – the purple ‘happy’ card. Her fav colour :)
