What a Super Swap

A few weeks ago I signed up for 'Mad About Bags' Send a Little Love Swap.

Its quite some time now since I did one of these and I was really looking forward to doing it.

I was partnered with Debbie from Fairy Bluebells Craft Adventure, and I couldn't have been teamed with anyone more perfect.

We are such soul mates, its uncanny the similarities.
We're both from Lincolnshire and love sewing as well as many other crafts. We both love Whitby, in fact we holidayed there last year. We both love hares. We both love vintage. Just before Christmas we both went to Donna Nook to see the newborn grey seals....the list goes on....

And then last week an exciting parcel arrived...Oh generous is this lovely lady.

I love it all and and she has summed me up to a 'T'. The beautiful cupcake soap and the  love heart candle are now adorning my bathroom, the hanging hearts and my most favourite thing of all the rose decorated giant peg is in my sewing room.
I already have ideas for the fabric and trims and of course the sweets wont last much longer,
I've just run out of my Belle and Boo note cards, so now I have some lovely replacements with beautiful flocked hearts on. I do like to send a nice note with any parcels I send to friends and family, it makes it so special and these will be perfect.

So thank you Debbie for such perfect gifts and for your generosity and lovely emails, I feel as though I've found a new friend.

Here's a little hint at some of the things I sent Debbie, I think she is going to show them on her blog, The necklace shown is not her actual one as that had  her initial on and I forgot to photograph some of the things before I parcelled them up!

Have a great week, its half term here so we will be having our grandsons. I've got lots of ideas to keep them occupied and by the looks of the weather forecast I'm going to need them if we're cooped up for much of the time.

  3. By the way Jenny...the hanging hearts were from Whitby as were the fabric, ribbons and buttons. x
