Perfumed Parcel!

I was delighted to receive a parcel yesterday from Gill at Gillyflower. I was the lucky winner of her recent giveaway, how exciting.
As soon as I removed the packaging the scent of lavender hit me. Stunning.
 The first thing I opened was the pretty lavender filled heart.
Then I opened the lovely cushion cover.
So beautifully made with lovely fabric. As I knew they were coming I have had time to think about where were going to go.
It didnt seem right to separate them and so here they are together in their new home:

This is the little bench seat near my front door, so all my visitors will be ble to enjoy both the cushion and the lavender scent. The little lavender heart looks very happy hanging next to the lovely felt bag I bought from Liz at That Fuzzy Feeling and the crochet bird I made using Lucy's tutorial at Attic24.
I'm sure Gill will spot the lovely card she sent on the top of the unit there.
Now I want to go out just so I can come into the fresh lavender scent!
And the cushion looks equally at home on the seat.
A huge thank you to Gill for making such a beautiful gift. I am a lucky girl. I am going to go for another sniff of the heart!
Enjoy your Sunday.

  1. What a beautiful cushion and heart, Becky! I bet you were thrilled to be the winner. Lovely to see your felt bag again, too :)

  2. Hi Becky
    Its kind of strange seeing that familiar cushion in another home, but it fits in beautifully with your other lovely things, as does the heart, and I'm so glad theyve gone to a good home!!!
    Sorry that the cushion cover didn't arrived nice and pressed as I sent it - I had hoped the tissue paper might keep it uncreased!
    I do find you often need to give the bags a squeeze to release the scent.
    I'm so glad you're pleased Becky, and thank you so much for writing such a lovely post about it.
    Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  3. That looks like such a calm, serene and now fragrant and comfy corner Becky. How lovely! Ali ;-)
