Treasure Trove

My computer has decided it's going to cooperate today so now I can get on with my blog!

I treated myself to a Get Eurofied Sample Box.

Some of you may already be familiar with Get Eurofied. They sell sample boxes containing samples from European Craft Sellers from sites such as Etsy and MISI .I was curious to see what other sellers had to offer and I'm a sucker for little surprises!
I was very excited when my box arrived and pleasantly surprised by the standard of the contents. I was like a child at Christmas with a box of treasure! It was interesting to see how other sellers represented themselves with a small sample. I had been thinking of doing this at some point myself.

My personal favourite item was a decorated bottle top magnet by Kitty Darkness Designs.

There were lots of useable items in the box which had you bought them all individually would have cost a lot more than the sampler box! I have lots of little things I'll give as presents and others I will keep for myself!!

             I also liked the mini-journal from Palepink

 This sea glass pendant from Blue Box Studio

               Hair Clip from Black Rose                                   


 Felt Heart from Vilt a la Kim


  Finally...a lovely Sterling Silver Butterfly Charm from Toosis.

These boxes make a lovely alternative gift idea especially for those people who are difficult to buy for! I can't wait for the next box - whether or not there will be something from me in there I don't know - there just don't seem to be enough hours in the day for me at the moment!


  1. That looks interesting! By the way you've been tagged! Have a look at my blog for the rules. Caz x

  2. The sample box is a great idea, I think I will have to have a look for one. Like you, I love surprises.

  3. Having added to the box, it's nice to see my work featured and know someone's pleased with their goodies.

    Have to say, I hadn't heard of the sample box deal on Etsy...looks awesome! Nothing better to cheer your day up than a box of pretty things made with love is there?
