... what is going on!?
So my lovely postman did the business on a steaming October 1st, and 2 parcels awaited me when the girls and I got back from dropping hubby and son at the station, as they were heading up to London for the Doctor Who Experience! (Great, scary, hot!).
So parcel one - expected, but always a delight to get Brit Bee packages at the beginning of the month. This time Laura did us proud; look at all that Denyse Schmidt, and lollies from Lolly...
We are star-bound this month, so I have surfed and pinned my inspiration, and am now raring to go!
The second parcel had been eagerly anticipated, goodies from swap partner no.2, but I had no idea what to expect.
99% of the makes would have been welcomed with open arms, only those with the 'really wrong colours' fell into the 1%, but I had left so many clues/demands, I knew disappointment would not be an option!
So imagine my utter joy and surprise to spot, by the gobbledigook return address, that Cindy, the swap-mama extraordinaire had been making for little old me - it had never crossed my mind!
There was no time to rack my brains over what she had posted on flickr or if her other partner had already bagged a package!
|OK, then I just ripped the tissue paper off!|
|I had been convinced this was a baby for Rhonda's mama bird! So glad it wasn't, sorry Rx|
|Lovely birdy backing too!|
|Hope he doesn't want it back!|
|Fan-flipping-super-duper-I had to email Ayumi I was so excited-tastic!|
|I love this brooch so much, I could have pinned it on my bikini!|
|All together now - woo hoo!|
So here are all my wonderful items from the Goodie Swap together...
I cannot believe how lucky I am to have received such amazing and perfect swaps from both my wonderful partners! Thank you, thank you, thank you xxx
It's not all over yet though, as neither of my partners have received their packages from me, so I am on tenterhooks, and can't wait to show and tell all! Hopefully soon!!
I hope I have not made you too envious, but it's only natural!
So I will leave you with a couple of other glimpses of yesterday. This time of year it is usually more North Pole...
... than Nazareth!
... but not at the moment; when the garden centre says it's Christmas, who am I to disagree!?
