Lovely things arrive at last.

At last! My lovely prints arrived from Australia. I ordered a limited print for my sister for her birthday from Tiel Seivl-Keevers through her tsk tsk shop on Etsy. I love her designs and would have loved to keep her '8 days a week' print for myself. But I am a kind, generous, selfless, kind of a sister, so I settled for hoping my sister would hate it and give it back to me, and as a back up plan I ordered a wee something for myself - (her 'jet bird' print).

What I hadn't considered in all of this was customs and excise charges. So when they arrived I had £10 to pay. Then another £5 to send it onwards to my sister securely. Now my sister is on the hunt for a lovely frame and nice mount for it (unfortunately she really loves it) It's a gift that just keeps on billing!


  1. What a bore. Next time, just get her a fancy postcard from Paperchase and keep the lovely print. Saves money and guilt all round!

  2. wow, that is some tax fee! I should have sent it directly to her.

    thanks, and i hope you like them.
    thanks also for letting me know about my work being on "A Beautiful Mess. I would have never known as there is no link back to me.


You're not going to leave without saying something, are you?
