A parcel in the post!

Early on in Blogtoberfest, I entered Tinniegirl's giveaway and somehow managed to win! The prize was a mystery, and was to be based on Cathy's exploration of my blog. Yesterday, an enormous parcel arrived on my doorstep. Here's what was inside....
A tinnie! With a lovely magical castle on it. I love it! But there's more. Inside....


Yarn (she obviously did her homework!), some trim (it probably has a proper name but I don't know it), a card of buttons, and another tiny cute little tin absolutely packed with vintage buttons! But there's more.....
A very generous pile of vintage knitting books and patterns....
And a pincushion! Now I have two, which is good, because the other one I made isn't very big. I've already filled it up and it's only got about 18 pins in it. So this one is not only lovely, but also useful.

Thank you, Cathy, for your generosity. This package will keep me amused for hours!

Lucky lucky! I especially love the tins. I have a tin fetish you know. I have to refrain from buying them at Op shops all the time. We don't even have room for them so I started punching holes in them and using them as little pots for small plants.

Enjoy!
