Pizza from the post office

 Early last year I sent a pizza box, packed with crafty bits from the Typo Not Quite Right table, to a mini friend in New Zealand.Yesterday the box returned, refilled with mini goodness. 

The women at the post office thought it funny that I should be asking if a pizza box had arrived, and got quite excited when it did!

I couldn't wait to get it home and see what was inside...

 What was inside was lots of lovely crafty loot, including some more letter sets to make my box brooches with, scrapbooking paper, cutouts, stickers and bits of bling.

 My favourite bits so far are these plastic pieces which look like modern resin vases,
A packet of wooden cutouts in the shape of hearts and clouds and five plastic vase-shaped pieces.
this badge (which my friend explained was supposed to be 'I spot Damien Hirst' - but decided that 'I spot dolls' houses' was also appropriate),
Badge saying 'I [spot] DH' on top of a sheet of wood veneer.
these cardboard cutouts in the shape of gates, 
Scrapbooking cutouts in the shape of fancy gates.
and, finally I can never resist a daisy... 
A set of coloured round push pins, a bag of daisy sequins, and four wooden dolls' house plant pots.
So much inspiration to work with. Thank you, Sandra!
