a few weeks back i joined in with the mellow + yellow swap
i somehow came across marta's lovely blog + was just in time to sign up. the rules were very simple...pick a colour scheme + send some gifts...what could be better?
today i got back from work to find a parcel on my doorstep
all the way from america...from my lovely swap partner ali
i opened it up to find a host of delights
each one just the kind of thing i love
(that girl's got good taste!)
sweetly wrapped with tissue + string
in tones of sea green + a hint of bitter chocolate
(what a delectable combination)
here's what she kindly sent to me
:: an aromatherapy candle...
bergamot mint that smells so uplifting...
sat on my work desk ::
:: pretty thank you notelets with print envelopes...
it's going to be hard to part with these
...for extra special thank yous only ::
:: cucumber soap...simple + such a gorgeous colour ::
:: dotty fabric + dinky buttons...
i'll have much fun using these for a new creation ::
:: a screen-printed linen napkin which
i think i'll keep to use as a little tablecloth ::
+ handmade by ali...fabric covered thumb tacks
for my pinboard...so special...something handmade is much appreciated!
these came wrapped in a swatch of the print fabric which is going to be an ideal addition to something i'm working on right now
thank you so so so much ali!!!
it's been so nice to make a new friend
i hope my package reaches you safe + sound
you've made one happy monday! xxx
i'll post some photos of what i sent to ali
when i know she's received them
...i hate to spoil suprises! i'm off now to take a peek at
the flickr group to see what everyone else got : )
