Today my neighbour greeted the delivery am and took in my parcel. She dropped it over after I came home from work. Certisnly saved me a trip to the post office!

My parcel was wrapped in brown paper and had travelled to me from the Netherlands. 

I carefully opened all edges to find a second layer of paper. Bridie, 11, made sure the parcels were wrapped and I could open them further. 

This is what greeted me. 

An ornament. 

Not not any ornament one that has been cross stitched. I absolutely love it. 

It will have a special place on my tree this year.
