A Curious Christmas! Box #17

My box arrived this morning, just a plain cardboard box, but inside lots of lovely little presents all wrapped in beautiful tissue paper.

My friend sent a postcard with a John Lennon quote from Leeds Postcards (a clue as to where she's from?  I hope so, Leeds is my favourite city) and a note to say I have been much talked about at her work as she's involved friends in suggestions of what to include. I thought this was lovely and spreads the curiosity even further... 

I received:

- some gorgeous homemade bunting, perfect to decorate my soon to be redecorated spare bedroom/dressing room
- some lovely smelling homemade soap
- a beautiful ceramic pie bird, I love cooking and winter is the best time for making hearty pies so this will come in very handy
- some pretty cupcake cases, my work colleagues will be very pleased as my baking always gets shared with them
- some equally pretty notecards with pictures of cakes on them and - even better - the recipes for them on the back.  Just the things to fill the cake cases with!
- some small but perfectly formed cake cutters in the shape of butterflies, more baking!  Hurrah!
- a Little Miss Curious badge that made me smile
- and finally some absolutely amazing tiny origami stars.  I wish I could make something like this, they are beautiful and will decorate my mantelpiece this Christmas and remind me of my Curious Friend.

I have been ill for a couple months, off work and virtually housebound; receiving my box has cheered me up so much.  I really appreciate the thought and kindness that my Curious Friend put in to it.

Tiffany - it is a fantastic idea and such simple way to spread so much joy. I love reading what other people got too.

I've wrapped the presents for my recipient this afternoon and will post tomorrow, I hope she enjoys her box as much as I've enjoyed mine."
