Send a Little Love Swap 2016

Back in January I put my name down to join in with Tracy's (Mad About Bags) Send a Little Love Swap, which you can read about here

I was partnered with Jo of, and we swapped emails just to check each other out. I'm afraid that real life rather got in the way, as is often the case, but I managed to get a few things together for Jo, and she for me, so we agreed to post our parcels on Saturday 6th. However down here in soggy wet Wiltshire it rained so hard that day that I decided that I wouldn't venture out, so my parcel was posted instead on the Monday after. Jo kept her word and posted hers, which arrived here on Monday just as soon as I had got back from the Post Office sending hers!

I didn't remember to take photos of what I sent, but this is what I received.

A lovely delicious bar of chocolate, which sadly didn't last very long - I dont know what it is about chocolate but once it arrives in the house it disappears again pretty quickly!

A To-do list pad, with a magnet on the back to attach to the fridge.

A dear hand-knitted mouse with lined ears and a heart on her chest, which Cassie has rather taken to, so I have to keep it out of her sight.

A mosaic coaster kit, which I am really looking forward to having a go at sometime soon.

A set of 4 red felt embroidered coasters

A gorgeous scented candle, some heart-shaped card decorations and some hand cream.

A big thank you to Jo for being a great swap partner, and another big thank you to Tracy for organising the swap.

Wishing you, my reader, a very Happy Valentines Day tomorrow.
