Swap Goodies Received!!
Well what can I say except 'Wow'!
The biggest parcel was waiting for me when I got home from work just now. It was my 'Good Enough To Eat' swap goodies from Caroline over at her blog MaryAnnLucy. Here are the contents of the box:
I was absoloutely bowled over by all the little parcels wrapped in red tissue paper with gold cake stickers on them, some were even finished with cute blue gingham ribbon. I quickly got to work opening all the parcels, it was better than Christmas I must say. As I was opening the packages I realised there was a distinct theme occuring - edible and non-edible!
The edible pile included lots of yummy jelly sweets, different types of chocolate and waffles. Mmmm. Needless to say I already feel sick as I have consumed both the waffles and the raspberry chocolate liquorice whilst writing this post!! I think I'll keep a little of the chocolate for myself and divvy the rest out between Mr. G and the kids, that should keep 'em sweet!
Now the non-edible pile contained a feast of yumminess! A lovely cupcake pincushion made from Amy Butler fabric, (which has saved me a job as I was going to make a new pincushion this week!), a cute strawberry reuseable bag, (which has given me an idea for another swap!), some gorgeous gorgeous aple buttons, some bath bombs, a cherry flavoured 'Jelly Bean' lip balm - I've been wanting to try these for a while now, I hope it really does taste like a jelly bean, some fairtrade tea bags, a very cute mini cake stand and finally a lovely book called 'The Ritz London Book of Afternoon Tea'. Wow, what a scoop!
I've really enjoyed this swap and I will show you pictures of what I sent Caroline when she lets me know that she has opened the package, I'd hate to spoil it for her! I do hope Caroline and I stay in touch as it's been fun getting to know her over the last few weeks.
Now all I have to do is complete the hand-made element of my 'Fabric Addict' swap and I can get that posted too, hopefully tomorrow! My apron will be posted by the end of the week too for the 'Great Apron Swap 2010'. Hooray!
Edited:: I've included a couple more pictures of the lovely cupcake pincushion as I don't think my original photo's showed it well enough and it truly is lovely! As was the whole parcel - thanks again MaryAnnLucy!
