For the British Style Bloggers' 1st birthday party - see my last post - Amy (BSB editor and our host for the day's festivities) had organised a Summer Secret Santa.
Rachel, from Mon Polkadot Cheri, bought me a couple of amazing little treats.
Talk about a lady who does her research... just check out this ring! Look familiar? Because I think it bears a striking resemblance to the beauty that adorns the left hand side of my blog!
Rachel also popped a very stylish woman into my spangly box... I am referring of course to Barbie. Check out my beautiful new keyring, seen here between my Cath Kidston horseshoe and a black felt rabbit that was a birthday present from my friend Sally of Style Outside the Square. Doesn't Barbie look sharp in her cigarette pants, mac and hat, with all those stunning red accessories?
Even though she had already been quite generous enough with cake and the fit-to-burst party bags full of goodies like Yorkshire Tea teabags, Maoam, Cadbury's Eclairs, balloons and bottles of bubbles, Amy bought me a little extra something in the Beatrix Potter shop. Bless her.
Rachel received a special badge from Amy too - with Jemima Puddle-Duck. I'll leave her to explain why!
And as if all this spoiling from the ladies wasn't enough, I just couldn't help letting loose on some sticker fun in Paperchase. Take a look at these beauties! Not looking so full-up and pristine now, I can tell you.
Any time's a good time for gifts. To others, or to yourself.
