Ok I couldn't find my camera after the move so I am going to post package 1 with package 2. Najaorama put each item in a separate numbered envelope but because my stupid postman left my package at the wrong door, under a gutter over night after a storm, they were soaking. Fortunately the goodies all survived mostly unscathed, it has been really hard to not use them until I had pics posted!
She sent me butterfly bobby pins for something w/ fave animal (in lieu of dragonflies), passion tea because it has fave color on it (which I have always used to make iced tea btw), chinese jasmine soap for something with fave smell (could not love more), paper origami cranes for something made with paper, but I have no idea where they flew off to, a vintage wooden spool (related to thread), something sentimental- wedding favor prayer flags (brilliant idea!!), vintage postcards (she collects), spiced hot cocoa for something drinkable- something I've always wanted to try too, bookmark for something related to reading, and a collapsible funnel for kitchen.. we needed this, we use old breastpump cones lol.
She also included a little raw silk, and iron on typewriter and bubbles! She and I have such similar taste, I love picking your own partner!
Next is package 2 which I really really love.
First, she gave me 5 rolls of cotton yarn (which is my favorite to crochet with btw) in jewel tones. I love it! I have some of the colors already.
Then the smalls: I wear headbands every single day because I can't stand hair in my face and I love color. So she sent me all these perfect fitting reversible headbands!! I always meant to make some for myself but hate working with elastic in casings, she just put a thick length of elastic though, it's genius!
The medium item is a crochet hook clutch made with some nifty vintage newspaper she appears to have turned into fabric.I love it! I've really needed one.
I love that the front says "Wanted, steady woman".
Thanks so much naja, I think I will be begging you for personal swaps for years to come.
