My Lucky Day

Yesterday was my lucky day. The mail man came by at work as well as at home – bringing all kinds of treats!

First up, I had ordered some stuff from jcaroline creative a while ago, and I’m telling you, if you love ribbon that is the place to go! I was just stopping by for a few pieces of ribbon, and I ended up going a little bit crazy. Check this out – and this is just a small selection of my order:




Sorry guys – I know this could be an expensive acquaintance…  😉 Note, that if you’re from Denmark, you could have a little trouble checking out – I did, as the shop system didn’t accept my Danish credit card. Don’t give up, they were so helpful and it ended up working out just fine.

So guys, do you remember a while back when I entered my light summer tunic to Rae’s Spring Top Week? And it went and won? Well, Rae just sent me a package full of gorgeous stuff that had arrived when I came home yesterday afternoon! A few peeks:

And there was a beautiful handmade belt and a sweet card as well! And she mailed me the pattern for her wonderful Toddler Backpack which will be perfect for either one of the girls, when I get around to making it. This has to be my favourite, though – the Lickety Split Bag!

The Lickety Split Bag

I’m going to agree with her – it’s a perfect bag for nearly anything! It’ll find great use here – for outings, trips to the beach, visiting friends, etc. And she even included the pattern, so I’m definitely going to give it a go!

Thank you so much, Rae – I love it all! Next time you do something like the Spring Top Week – i’m in! 🙂

    Det er nogle helt fantastske bånd du har købt – tulipanerne og de små hjul/sole er mine favoritter.
    Jeg er sikker på, at du nok skal få brugt dem på smukkeste vis.
    Jeg – derimod – tør slet ikke bruge dit link til bånd paradiset… ;0))

    Jättefina band! Ska försöka hålla mig därifrån, för jag är rädd att det kan bli dyrt… 🙂

  3. Rae says:

    Oh yay! That came faster than I thought! I’m so glad you like everything — I didn’t know if you used cloth napkins at your house but if not you can always use the fabric for something else! (: I hope you enjoy the patterns and let me know if you have any questions of course.

    I LOVE those Jessica Jones ribbons — I’ve been eyeing those over at JCaroline too! Lovely!

    Nogle helt fantastiske bånd. Den butik kan godt blive et dyrt bekendtskab. Jeg er specielt vild med deres egne designs. Jeg laver lidt arbejde ind imellem for en fransk leverandør af bånd og jeg kunne kende nogle af hans bånd… det var lidt hyggeligt.

    Good morning! I just stumbled across your blog this morning and wanted to pop by and say Hello! I am an American living in Herning with my husband and write a blog daily about my discoveries in my new home. :o)

    And I must tell you that I LOVE your blog masthead pic! It is a great feature!!!

    Ulla – den er god med dig – du kommer såmænd nok forbi før eller siden… 🙂

    Maria – ja, billige det er de ikke – ikke engang i USA… 😉

    Trudy – I love having different ribbon for embellishment – I mostly use them for my bibs, but they will be perfect for several other purposes! 🙂

    Rae – Yes, it did arrive quite quickly, didn’t it? We do use cloth napkins, mostly for when we have friends over, but they will be wonderful for that. I even inherited some napkin rings for my grandmother that will go beautifully with your napkins! Thank you SO much! 🙂

    Millie – 😀

    Dana – LOL – indeed! 😉

    Kelli – How fun! 🙂 Well, hello there – thank you very much, I’m definitely going to go for a read on your blog as well. That should be an interesting angle of Denmark. I’m delighted to make your acquaintance! 🙂
