Oh the deliciousness of parcels in the post...

...and from foreign parts no less!  I've been meaning to post about this lovely little package that arrived last week from Claire over at The Fairy Tale Cupboard, but me being me I hadn't got around to it.  A beautiful selection of Fairy Tale postcards, 2 of each!  And an extra special one from Oona Patterson, who wrote Ream, the lovely book I won in Claire's competition.  I hope you can tell, that the tiny figure of Ream herself has been cut out of the postcard (that's my finger you can see through it)!  There was much amazement from young and old in the Mermaid household as to the detail.
And what should arrive today but this lovely parcel...my prize!

And have a look inside...isn't it gorgeous?
