A Present from my Sister

 Some of you may have noticed this pretty vintage table runner in some of my recent posts. It was a present from my lovely sister who visited a few weeks ago

It has the most amazing embroidery.
I really don't know how she managed to part with it!
 It's going to take pride of place on my farmhouse table with a lovely vase full of flowers.

My sister also bought me a pretty hanging heart made from shells and beads,
some 'made with love' ribbon to sew onto my handmade items
and some vintage style tags.
She also surprised me by booking tickets for the two of us to see the Beach Boys in concert at the Royal Albert Hall in September! I've never been to a 'proper' concert before so I'm really looking forward to it. 


  1. What terrific sister you have!! The handiwork is gorgeous! The shell heart so cute! Beach Boy tickets?? Priceless!!


  2. What a wonderful sister

  5. Hi Jacqui, well, it looks like being a sweetheart runs in your family. This table runner is delightful, what a treasure. Thanks so much for stopping by and for your lovely comment. Have fun at the concert. Connie :)

  6. What a beautiful embroidered runner!! The stitching is stunning!! Such a sweet sister you have!! Wishing you a wonderful day! xo Heather

  7. Hello Jacqui, Just wanted to let you know we have just bestowed The Kreative Blogger Award upon you! Please pop over to Mrs Black's and pick it up when you get a minute! xxx

  8. The runner is beautiful - people don't realise the amount of work that goes into this sort of thing and how hard to be that neat - I particularly noticed it on your post about the Dahlia Pink Princess - the colours were so right.

    Quite envious about the Beach Boys !!

    Have a good weekend.


  9. What wonderful finds!! And, how fun that you get to see the Beach Boys...I have never seen them ~ I still want to see Paul McCartney!
