Parcel joy

April 4, 2010

The post turning up has been all very exciting these past couple of weeks. Last week I received this month’s Secret Post Club parcel from Mrs Yappy Dog.

It was very secret when it arrived as she had accidentally added my card in with another parcel but it was forwarded to me a few days later. My present was this lovely little collection of items.

Then on Thursday my parcel arrived from Mum@TheMadHouse – we had taken part in the flower swap at Sew Scrumptious. This was the wonderful pile of presents I received. It felt like my birthday!

I happily tore off all the lovely flowery wrapping paper and inside I found some wonderful things.

Forget me not flower seeds – already passed to the gardener for planting.
A gorgeous lavender bag in the shape of a tea bag (she knows how much I love tea).
A mini flower photo album.

A flowery bangle, which Piran loves!
A button heart which is perfect for my new inspiration board that I am planning.
A fat quarter of flowery material, perfect for adding to my stash.
A pin cushion. I am totally in love with the fabric it is made from.

A beautiful handmade apron that makes me feel like a domestic goddess. How nice is this fabric?

A quilted laptop case to keep my MacBook all snug and protected when it leaves the house. Perfect.

Flowery cleaning cloths (I saw these in Tesco 2 weeks ago and stopped myself buying them as I had plenty of boring cloths at home. I love them!)
Chocolate lollies. There may have been 4 of them when the parcel arrived. *ahem*

You can visit her blog to see what I sent her! I really enjoyed taking part in the swap, think I will keep my eyes open for more.
