Open the Box!

I had a delivery a couple of days before the big birthday.
This box arrived. I was very excited because I love The White Company, but I was very good and didn't open it until the day.
Inside was this box and a little card with a birthday wish from Sally, my dear friend.

Inside this smart box was this:

Another stylish box. 
And inside this? Yes, you've guessed it, another box.

A beautiful trinket box. Thank you Sally, it really is lovely.
And because I know you all want to see I couldn't resist this final photo.

I hope the sun is shining for you today.
And a big "Hello" to my new followers.


  1. This blog is through a nice to meet new people and their land, culture and nature. Come and look at you Teuvo Kuvat - Teuvo images, both at the same time will be my blog kokoellmassa flag depicting your country's flag to rise higher. You should also tell all your friends to my blog by fermentation. Teuvo Vehkalahti Finland

    1. Thank you, Teuvo.
      It is lovely to hear from people in other countries.
      You have some lovely images on your blog too.
      Hope to hear from you again soon :)

  2. That is a very beautiful box indeed :-)
    Mind you I would have been excited just to have the cardboard box let alone the beautiful silver one too !!!
    The batting / wadding for a quilt ... I usually buy it at an online shop called "cotton patch" I've done a link in the tutorial. I would have thought JL would have it, but I've not been there for sooooo looonnnngggg !!
    We must have a phone call chat very soon indeed - I'm off to get kiddiwinks now ;-)

  3. Thanks Josie,
    Yes, the cardboard box in itself was very exciting indeed!
    I'll have a look at the Cotton Patch website and maybe try some quilting!
    Have a lovely sunny day :) x

  4. How lovely. I like The White Company too. The packaging wouldn't go wasted either - outer box full of newspapers for re-cyling inner box to keep or re-use for gift & tissue to the charity shop for wrapping delicate items.

    1. Thanks Penny,
      That's all the packaging sorted then!
      I think I'll probably keep the inner box because it will be jolly useful to store threads or buttons or something like that .
      And my youngest volunteers at a local charity shop so she can take the tissue along next time she goes :)
      Take care, x

  5. What a lovely pressie and the way it was packaged, awesome!

    1. Hi Kylie,

      Take care, x
