The Joy of Swapping ♥
Lakota’s Faith Hope and Charity Swap and Ellie’s Pretty Much Penniless Second-hand Secret Santa.
A big and warm thank you to these two special blogging friends for organising the swaps and ensuring everything ran smoothly.
And here is what I kindly received:
My swap package from Susan at Tea Diary.
I was delighted to find this charming Alice in Wonderland charm bracelet! Alice by name, I am always touched to receive anything wonderland themed.
She also managed to track down these lovely shabby chic salt and pepper shakers, which match my shabby sweets jar I picked up a few months back.
I was also absolutely thrilled to receive these adorable handmade and wooden decorations. I just know I will go on to treasure these for years to come.
Thank you Susan ♥
My Second-hand Secret Santa was a wonderful surprise. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, as knowing my parcel was anonymous had me guessing what I would receive.
Given my love and devotion to children’s fiction, my parcel contained two children’s classics in Mog the forgetful cat and the dragon that squeaked. I was also thrilled to see the taped version of Mog the forgetful cat attached, I don’t actually own a cassette player, but sure will be looking out for one at next year’s car boot sales.
I always think handmade gifts make for the best presents, as the time and love that has gone into making them always outshines those mass produced.
This framed A embroidery sure did enchant me and it’s sure enough found a home in my craft room. And the handmade salt dough heart decoration was a welcome treat too.
Thank you Jes ♥
