Will you just look at the goodies that have been arriving at my house this week! I have joined a small swap group on flickr called the Handmade co. and our first swap is a blue swap. You send out an identical or similar packages out to your 2 assigned partners and you receive 2 very lovely yummy packages from 2 other group members. The lovely Mila is hosting this group and is doing a wonderful job of keeping it small and sweet!
Anyway, this first package arrived from Portugal from Rosa and contained some wonderful fabrics, a handmade apron, ribbons, buttons, CHOCOLATE!, a cute Hello Kitty tin (which has been swiped by my 5 year old who has been taking it to school all week kept safely hidden in her pocket!), not to mention the beautiful vintage postcard....such a wonderful parcel, it made me yelp with glee!
Then today I had another lovely parcel arrive, this time from Israel, from Orit . I'm feeling very spoilt! More cute fabrics, lovely vintage buttons, a fab handmade pincushion attached to a new pair of scissors that I really need (I was going to buy some this week!). The felt washing line is now in my utility room, where I do all my washing, I stuck it to a door and I love it!! Thanks to you both Orit & Rosa xoxo
A little stash each of powder blue polka dot fabric, a sheet of polka dot felt, a small selection of ribbons, buttons, beads and sequins, some gorgeous heart pins and my handmade items, an initial heart for each of them and a flower brooch (not shown). I hope they like them. It's such a lovely group and I'm looking forward to the next swap........greens.....my fave.
