My gifts from Daisy Jane

I was lucky enough to have lovely Daisy Jane as my sender in the Friends Having Fun Swap.  I received these wonderful presents.

Three lovely bags, a jar of buttons, a wash cloth and body wash.  And lollies, but they were eaten well before these pictures were taken.

I took these pictures in a favourite little spot in my garden...my potting table. So I thought I'd show it to you
The canisters on the bottom shelf used to live in my kitchen in the 70's but lost their home when the kitchen went all white with a touch of blue in the 90's.  So I keep them in the garden with seed packets, string and other bits and pieces inside.  The jugs are vases and I'm hoping little granny's bonnet seedlings will pop up in the seedling tray very soon.
This little trug contains the sweetest little violas,
called Little Bees - such sweet faces.

Thank you so much Daisy Jane, for my lovely gifts.  You really made me feel special.

Simple, easy, fun and super quick to make, I thought this was a great project. And there is also a very detailed, easy to follow tutorial.
Enormous thanks to Leslie who shares them HERE on her fabulous blog The Seasoned Homemaker.  
Hope you have a fun filled day.
