Very nice CC.

DH and I had a little chuckle. The mechanism on the pepper grinder will last for 25 years, maybe longer than us   :o

I had a chuckle at that Mcmich.  We have just had our old ounge suite recovered and the upholsterer said it will last another 30 years.  We are both in our 70's and I don't think we will last another 30 years.

CC, they look great - will bring back memories of your visit here a couple of years ago.

Very nice CC.

I don't think I would out-last those either!

Well, I waited and waited impatiently and restrained myself for all these weeks until today before I opened my gift and I really am gobsmacked. My SS has left me speechless and humbled - I ripped into my very heavy present and there was the most perfect gift inside - a thermocube.  I had never heard of these - they are similar to the thermoservers but, obviously, a cube, with a good solid silicone (detachable) base and silicone top.  Oh, it's just so very perfect for me, so, my SS, whomever you are many, many thanks and hugs for your thoughtfulness.  I don't deserve it and am simply thrilled to bits. 

Unfortunately I have never conquered the gentle art of posting photos onto the forum, but hope my description is enough to give everyone a good idea of my present.

From my last years SS, I received a Kirigami calendar with a project for every day. This is one of the last projects I did last week. A beautiful 3D reversable star.

What lovely SS gifts and how nice of you to post them today. They are beautiful. There is certainly a tremendous friendship here.
 
I'm just waiting for DH and DD to arrive back from picking up MIL.

I really missed being part of SS this year , but that was my choice. I hope I can get my act together enough next year to share the generosity of friends on the Forum.

It is truly a pleasure Bedlam.

I went to the sales this morning and spent my SS voucher. I will post a photo of the delights I got later.
