{balloons + beautiful surprises}

Balloons, balloons are everywhere, and happily so, as there are things to celebrate. Always delightful to receive parcels in the post, and one of the fun things about blogging is the beautiful surprises that arrive in the mail. There have been fancy invitations to alluring events, works of art, many books and other lovely things, but the new favourite is the gemma field tote that recently arrived . . . {Thanks so much, Jessica!}

Hope you’re having a lovely weekend filled with beautiful surprises!
