I was lucky enough to win Christine's giveaway on her wonderfully nostalgic blog Hollyhock Cottage - a miniature home in the 1940's and my package arrived today all the way from sunny Australia.
It was a Mary Poppins box, full of goodies which are just perfect for my memory lane toy shop.
Just look at this super cute farm house set. All hand painted by Christine in such perfect detail. I can remember my cousin having one just like this and being sooooo jealous. Now I have the perfect one all to myself.
Also included a games set of those must have family games, Ludo and Snakes and Ladders. Gosh the afternoons we whiled away playing these and of course the arguments they caused, my sister was a terrible cheat!
Plus the most perfect jar of coloured marbles. Ignore the scellotape which I failed to remove!
I can't tell you how happy this little parcel made me, bringing back so many memories of happy simple times.
Thank you Christine for everything, you are a star!
