Spring Makes Me Sing - the results

Hello again

Told you I'd be back soon! I promise this is my last post for the week/month ;)

In Jackie's Spring Makes Me Sing swap, I was paired with Justine from EmmaBearForever. We both were finally organised and both sent our parcels 1st Class Recorded Mail last Friday. Justine got her parcel on Saturday - for whatever reason the Post Office didn't deliver mine till Tuesday! However it was so well worth the wait;


 Parcels all wrapped up in spotty and flowery paper


Inside - a gorgeous tea cozy (so tempted to wear it as a hat) and a crocheted bag - both made by Justine


A CK mug with chickens on it and 2 lots of chocolate eggs (time to hide these from the boys)


All these sewing supplies - pins, buttons, floss, cottons,buttons & ribbon


Seeds and CK tissues. I am going to have such a lot of new flowers in my garden this summer - shall think of blogland when they all come through.

Thank you Justine very much - for such a lovely parcel and for being a great swap partner.

Here's what I sent to her;

Spring embroidered vintage cloth, chocolate chicks, apple scented melts, ribbon, a china posy basket, a spring themed brooch, spring flower earrings and some decorated eggs (not real ones).

I think now apart from the ongoing Birthday Swap, I am all up to date with my swaps.

Don't forget my giveaway - like the National Lottery say - you've got to be in it, too win it ;)

Have a good weekend and for us Mummies have a good day on Sunday :)
