"It took a while to persuade the man in the Post Office that, despite not being called 'The Curiosity Box', I was the intended recipient and he handed over the box to my delight. I clutched it close on the way home, super excited to find out what I'd been sent all the way from Poland!
Disappointed I was not, as I unwrapped the gold polka dot wrapping to unveil a cavern of blue tissue paper and ribbon wrapped goodies.
A Christmas card from my Curious gift-giver wished me a lovely Christmas, before I got on to the gifts...
Firstly, Christmas decorations; a lovely knitted Christmas tree alongside a felt stocking and sweet. They went straight on my own Christmas tree, and looked wonderful.
Next, a bottle opener and three badges in a beautiful pink print. They're from a Polish design place (http://colorfolk.pl/ ) which seems to have the most wonderful array of items. I wish I could read Polish!
A pack of orange and pink origami paper was next in line - the perfect treat given I'd downloaded an origami app just days before. Who knows what paper animals I'll be making?!
A knitted handwarmer and Gluhwein hot chocolate stirrer (like mulled wine, with chocolate) were perfect items for the cold winter days.
And last-but-not-least, a delightful paper cutter shaped like a tree - that'll keep me going for Christmases to come crafting homemade cards.
All in all, what a wonderful experience! I'm thrilled with my gifts, and send a heartfelt thanks to the sender!"
