Oh. My. God!

I am one very happy Mail Exchanger today!!

This parcel from Virginia was waiting to greet me when I arrived home.....

...and this is the beautiful gift that was inside it...

Lovely huh?

I almost cried when I peeled back the cardboard and saw this Janet Hill beauty!

...and in the small pink parcel was this beautiful ring.

Thank you so much Virginia...and thanks to Chantelle at Fat Mum Slim for organising this, because it's been a wonderful experience.

I only hope everyone who took part is as happy with their gift as I am with mine.


  1. I'm sharing your excitement, Melbourne Girl....happy day x

  2. White Dove, I am absolutely tickled pink!!!

  3. How exciting! What a beautiful painting!! x

  4. What an absolutely gorgeous gift Lesley!!! The painting is beautiful and how gorgeous is that ring!! They have both certainly found a lovely new home with you. Enjoy ~ Tina x

  5. WOw what a lovely gift!

    Sorry have been away, off to catchup on your previous posts :)

  6. I've been meaning to ask what you got for your happy mail exchange. How lovely! Where will she go Lesley? I have a few of Janet Hills lady prints, but I'm not sure where to put them.

  7. Tina, I was so thrilled when I opened the pack I very nearly teared up! I emailed Virginia and thanked her profusely.
    Rose, I'm thinking of having her framed in a pewter type colour and putting her and the other Janet Hill girls in "my" room, aka the spare room. I'd like her in the bedroom, but will wait to see how the renovations go later this year before I hang her in there.

  8. So glad you love your gift! Looks like my research paid off!!

    I love those rings. I ended up *having* to get myself one too.

    Virginia xo

  9. Thanks again Virginia. I've put her in a special place for the time being...and my ring? Well, it's delish!


I love to hear your thoughts.
