Orty is home! And has been for a while. He was and still is full of stories from his trip to the US. A2K certainly showed him a good time. Here he is with a pic of all the goodies he brought back with him.
There is some lovely hand knit mittens, and a scarf. (that's why I love swapping with you A2K!) Thank-you. Lots of sweets that we don't get here, including some salt water taffy which confused us all, but has been enjoyed by us all. And Orty managed to find 3 different places to make a smashed penny (which if you recall I knew nothing about before we joined this swap)! A2K sent him a tea towel which was made on a vintage loom. And a cute drum thing which had me chuckling as its tag said "made in china" as well as "native american made" so I guess there was a native american working in a factory in China? LOLz.
Orty went to the craft store with A2K and in the inset you can see him cavorting in the buttons. He brought home a bag full!
The other inset photo shows Orty choosing his fossil stones. The kids are fascinated with them.
Here are a couple of my fave pages from the awesome scrapbook and A2k send a whole heap on a flash drive too, clever girl!
What an absolutely beautiful place to call home.
The pics that made the kids green with envy, The SNOW!
Thanks for being a wonderful host to Orty A2K. He is on cloud nine and so are all the family.
