Happy Mail Day


There was a happy mail day around here this week, my package from Amanda's summer blog swap arrived. It was filled with a beautiful crocheted tea towel, some lovely gift tags, lip balm, and tooth powder. There was also a little surprise in the package for Reece, an owl mask and a hand painted rock.

I am always amazed at the creative talents of others when I participate in these swaps, always so much goodness shared. Big thanks go out to Amanda for organizing us all again, and thank you to my new blog friend Alexa who sent this wonderful package.

    1. It is Chrisy. I have done quite a few blog swaps now, and they are so much fun, and introduce me to some new bloggers too.

  3. Apologies if you're getting this comment more than once, my computer is doing funny things this morning! But what a lovely parcel. I especially like that painted rock. Does Reece ever paint rocks in his collection or are they all left natural?

    1. Only once Sally :) So far they have been left natural. He does beeswax them though. I will find him at his craft table, waxing away sometimes. It is pretty cute.

  13. Neat! I will have to join a swap one of these days. It might be a while though since I literally threw my sewing machine out the window... Umm, that needs an explanation I think. It died and I just was following through on a promise that every frustrated crafter would like to do at some time or another. Oh well. The little painted rock is quite lovely. Take care.

    1. I do think that needs an explanation :) Although I do get it.

      You should definitely join in next time, they are a lot of fun.
