a tin is worth a thousand smiles.

I was just about to collapse into bed for an afternoon nap, I think the long days of editing for a website had caught up with me, and I was literally going loopy!
As I got into bed, I heard the only sound you want to hear on a weekday! THE PARCEL TRUCK! hehe, finally something other than a bill or junk mail, my adorable parcel from Tinnie Girl Arrived. These little tins have popped up everywhere in the blogging world, so I thought to spoil myself with something different, I bought myself one of her adorable mini tins. I will be upgrading to a bigger tin, but for now this is perfect. I asked her for greens as its my fave colour and oh so me, and she gave me a beautiful array of green and adorable cream buttons! which will be on a pair of green mittens I make for myself this winter.

If you have never seen Tinnie's beautiful tins, go check out her little nook on etsy, snap up a tin, you will not be disapointed! 

Other mail I recieved the other day but forgot to blog about, is the next installment to my adorable fiber club! My mum bought me a spot in her beautiful 3 month club over at
Ewe Give Me the Knits which I adoreeeee last months installment was lovely, but this month was stunning! shes sold out of all her extras she dyed up and I dont blame her! I would have snapped another lot up if I wasnt so slow lol.  

Behold a photo from my new lightbox, still getting a feel for it, but for under $10 its brilliant! Will be great for the next shop stocking of mine! which will feature some beautiful Cashmere Merino Sock Yarn! oh its going to be beautiful! Keep you eyes out for an update, it should hit my doorstep within the next 5 days! 

Tea and Yarn and beautiful Tins
