A lovely swap – Christmas come early!

A while ago I signed up for a lovely swap ‘From my home to yours’ with Betty the Wood Fairy – a talented lovely lady who paired me up with another talented and lovely lady – Ellie from Feltabulous. Well we pondered and thought and pondered some more – our parcels had to be posted by 31st August and this week my parcel from Ellie arrived – in a big box (squeee!) and in beautiful wrapping paper – Oh how I love the owls!!



I couldn’t wait to unwrap all of these goodies and this is what was inside!


Oh … my … goodness … me!!! It was just like Christmas!! I oohed and ahhed at every package I unwrapped – from pretty ribbon and washi tape to owlie fabric and tea towels, pencils and postcards to bracelets and fridge magnets, specially painted owlie notebook and beautiful goodies specially made for me by Ellie. If you have not joined in a swap before I highly recommend it – Ellie you made my first swap totally awesome!

Would you like to have a closer look?


Cute owl mug


Beautifully made handcrafted items (already worn/ hung up/ written in!)


A closer look at the gorgeous keyring – just yummy x


Sooo cute and already hanging in my conservatory


I love this hand felted heart – stunning


And a beautiful bracelet (which Little Miss H has already tried to pinch!!) in my very favourite colours

Ellie I would love to say a H U G E thank you to you – I love all of the items in my beautiful box! If you haven’t popped over to Feltabulous you can click here and say a friendly bloggy hello to Ellie from me!

Until next time – I’m still making more hats! oh and when Ellie’s parcel arrives I’ll let you have a little look at what I sent to her.
