My Fidgets from Scotland

A few weeks ago I hosted a giveaway for Mary from The Vintage Arcade . The winner duly announced and Mary sent off her package to the lucky lady, she also told me that she was going to send me as a thank you some “Fidgets”. Now being a fellow Scot I am only too familiar with this word fidget, this was used by my mama on a daily basis when she would say to me, “Christine for goodness sake will you stop fidgeting”. I might add because my mama is no longer here to tell me to stop fidgeting,  I can fidget as much as I like, but what I would like to know is , how on earth did Mary know this fact in our short acquaintance?

The postman arrived today and lo and behold I got my Fidgets all nine off them! Now what do I do with them? I am thinking that I just have to fidget with them, which I might add I have already done. The last thing I want to do is have them in my pocket and fidget with them as how many times have you seen a guy fidgeting with whatever is in his pocket (note the sound of coins jangling to disguise what they were really fidgeting with)!! So I am going to hang them by my work table and when I look at them I can, if not fidgeting already, have a wee fidget with them.


I digress. My main point here was to say thank you so much to Mary for making me my own personal Fidgets, they are amusing little things and each time I look at them  they will make me smile, and the fact that Mary made them especially for me makes them very special indeed.

Here they are so if you ever see something similar then chances are that Mary made them.

I’m so glad you like your Fidgets Chrissie. Fidgets are my own invention and this set is called
‘ Don’t Panic !’ I had great fun making them so fidget away and jangle them till your hearts content in or out of your pocket - just don’t lend them to a man.
(get my drift?)
