"I received my box this morning after waiting for it with all of the patience of a five year old on Christmas morning.
It was carefully wrapped in colorful paper and I loved that my curious friend had individually wrapped all of the items in the box and written a little note explaining each one. The gifts were all wonderful.
A great card with drawings by David Shrigley (I am a fan of his work, especially the tattoo section on his website!)
A beautiful mug with line drawings of London. I love line drawings and obviously being a Londoner I'm a pretty big fan of our Capital city! There were also and two mini packets of Teapigs tea which I love but I'd never tried the flavours my friend sent me, so I'm looking forward to a nice cup of tea and a sit down, as suggested by my curious friend.
Purple is my favourite colour and I've started taking a note book with me everywhere I go to note down ideas and inspiration, so the purple notebook was perfect.
A cool wallet to put my oyster card in.
A book with a note that explained my curious friend spends all Christmas reading (me too!)
A diary illustrated with beautifully designed album covers:
There were some glow in the dark stars "in case it's cloudy and you can't see the stars". I forgot to take a picture of them sadly and I have to nip out now but I love a glow in the dark star and I even went as far as covering a whole outfit in them for a festival this summer!
And last but by no means least a Scraperfoil. I think I like this best of all of the gifts for reasons of nostalgia. Their note explained that they always used to get one in their Christmas stocking. Well I have vivid memories of making a Scraperfoil picture for my Nan as a Christmas present when I was around 8, so this really did bring back happy memories.
I loved my curiosity box. Thanks so much to my curious friend. And if it happens to be you, do leave a comment and say hello, won't you?"
