happy swap ...

A month or so back I joined in with a Happy Swap over at Lisa's blog Periwinkle.

Remembering feeling at a real low ebb at the time, I thought it would help cheer me up, and it did.

With the help of Milo and Gabe, her two boys, I was paired with Jackie from Button Tree Crafts.

This is what Jackie sent me, all beautifully wrapped in pink/silver butterfly paper.

~ a pretty CK regal rose facecloth, which shall be put aside for my next trip/holiday;

~ The Gardener's Palette, a lovely book with lots of ideas, and photos of colourful plant combinations to drool over;

~ and a toast stamp, which comes with a handy hint not to put in the toaster!

Ooh, and a big bar of Galaxy which due to circumstances well out of my control, was unable to make it to the photo shoot!

The kindness of fellow bloggers is amazing isn't it? When I've told friends about the gifts I've received from people I've never met I don't think that they quite believe their generosity. I love this little community. Funny that when we open our parcels it's always the chocolate we focus on.

Hi Louise!

Thanks for your kind words on my blog today!

This looks like a lovely swap full of goodies, and I also enjoyed the sunflowers in your prior post.
