A Lovely Surprise from Mrs. M!

A few months ago now I joined the Surprise Pay it Forward and yesterday my lovely surprise from Mrs M. arrived in the post!

Mrs M. made me a lovely jewellery set that is exactly what I would have picked for myself…she knows me well! She had remembered that I had admired her colourful children’s necklace (amongst many other of her beautiful creations) so picked these beautiful and colourful beads:

 

Unfortunately the lighting isn’t great and doesn’t show off the brightness of the colours but I can assure you that they are stunning!

The necklace is a great length as I always choose long necklaces and I wore it out on my trip to the theatre last night:

 

I couldn’t get the earrings in the pic as well but this one does show the colour of the beads a bit better!

And if that wasn’t enough (she reall is spoiling me!) she also sent me these beautiful wooden buttons that I absolutely love!

 

Again, sorry about the photo quality…my room had rubbish lighting!

I haven’t decided what I will be using the beads for yet…I am currently debating making a bracelet like Janey’s or possibly stashing them to use on a crochet cardigan…but when I do find the perfect use for them it will certainly give me a nice break from uni work!

So I would like to say a huge thank you to Mrs M. for this wonderful gift that made my day! And i would also like to say to Janey, The Underestimated Mom and A Ponytail Kind of Day that I haven’t forgotten your surprises! Things have been pretty hectic with my return to uni but hopefully things will settle down soon so I can get your surprises made and in the post…even if it takes me into 2013!

    I’m glad you liked them and am so happy you’ve actually worn it.
    I tried taking photos myself before sending them to you, but also struggled with lighting. I just couldn’t capture the beads in their full multi coloured glory!
