Exciting new (and old) finds!!

I found this lovely disney paper to wrap up my 4 years old nieces birthday present, i added a little organza bag filled with chocolate coins and Tinkerbell stickers to the label.

I have found these wonderful biscuits for the children, the boxes are so lovely, i can't bear to get rid of them, so i'm going to use them as storage for the boys little toys.

I was having a hunt through some boxes in the loft and to my delight found the following:
This lovely little tin, i think it was my Mums and she used to keep pins in it. I think i'll add it to my sewing box.

I had lots of hankies as a child to keep up my sleeves, i only liked very soft ones. I still have some, i will post a picture on here soon. This one above was not used by me as it belonged to my great, great Nan. When i was given it by my Nan, my Mum wrote these words for me on an envelope for me to keep it in. It must be at least 120 years old.

I also found this lovely pencil tin that i took to school. It needs a clean, as you can see i stuck stickers to it. I'm hoping the boys will love it as much as i do. x

Oh and we are all feeling alot better now, thank you x

Thanks for the visit, your blog is lovely the hanky from your GGNan is so pretty what a lovely keepsake. My girls are now 20 & nearly 22 and I miss getting paper like yours for their little presents but I still enjoy wrapping things, they would still love the money on the gift tag what a nice idea...
