Share The Love: Box #5




I love, love, LOVE the contents of this box. They link together beautifully and Kirsten's well written response is a great read too. I'm sharing a couple of images from this one...

"Finally I have had some time to take some photos of my beautiful parcel that arrived last week & I wanted to take my time doing this as well as savouring the contents & the love that had been put into this box. It was with great excitement that I tootled off to the Royal Mail depot to collect my parcel & then bring it home to open when I was on my own.

As soon as I opened the lid, a lovely handwritten message was there for me to read & then I very carefully unwrapped the contents within. I am a vintage girl at heart & so let out a big sigh of love when I saw a vintage dressing table cloth that was wrapped around an old Penguin paperback. Did my secret sender know that I had just been saying to friends that it had been so long since I'd taken the time to sit & read a book? Well, this is the one that I am going to curl up with & read with a cup of tea & biscuit by my side. Bliss.

There were other pre loved little trinkets that I just love & then I took out the 'keep cup' & the woolly hat. My day job is as a primary school teacher & playground duty in the Winter months is not much fun but now I have a beautiful hand knitted hat & a cup that means I can safely take tea outside to wrap my hands round. Perfect.

The curiosity project is a simple & creative idea that really has reminded me of how much joy a handwritten message & carefully chosen gifts can bring. In an age of emails, texts, and tweets we can so easily lose the human contact with each other & this parcel has reminded me that it is these small gifts of curiosity that spread the most love & smiles. Thank you."

Enjoy it all Kirsten. Now...who was the sender?
