You aren't all axe murderers .

On the left is the teapot I picked up from Vinnies and showed you a while back .
On the right is the jug that matches it that a blogger sent to me .
Who is this blogger you ask ?
Not a clue , no idea !
I received this jug in the mail the other day and all I know is it came from Victoria .
The person sent it as a surprise because she knew I had the teapot .
This person didn't want to say who she was because
she didn't want me to feel obligated to repay her .
Can you believe how kind some people are !
I was really floored by the generosity of this person
and am just so touched that they took the time and effort to send it to me .
I hope my mystery gifter reads this and knows how happy and grateful I am .
Thankyou so much .

How lovely! Utterly gorgeous design too.
I had a similar thing happen recently. Someone sent me a book and I have no idea who it was apart from it was a blogger.
Isn't the blogging world amazing?!

Oh that is just so cool!! Guess what, we're coming to Gundagai in the school holidays, middle weekend. Maybe we can meet if you consider a patchworking Canberra housewife with 4 children is very unlikely to be an axe murderer too. A public place, you know, where people will hear you scream (with laughter i hope!!) He he, love Posie

That's a lovely thing to do. I had a blogger send me some gorgeous bits and pieces but begged for me not to acknowledge it publicly. Kindness from the heart always is more touching. Cherrie
