I said i'd post twice, because Scotskipper doesn't have a camera handy very often...
So, you get to see my ugly mug in 2 different cowls... LUCKY!!

This is what i sent from Australia all the way to America...
(keep in mind my package wasn't quite as packed full of goodies as the one she sent me) Tongue

This is the Ocean inspired cowl...


The buttons are made of shell, and fasten like a cufflink, or, 'cowl-link' as my man refers to them!

I wanted to send things that are made in Aus, particularly the state i'm from, so,
I sent a couple of bars of delicious soap (i'm so lucky i have a friend that makes such gorgeous soaps), one that was also made with local honey and bees wax.
A candle that was scented like the area i grew up in (sounds strange, but wine growing regions do have a distinct scent, especially at harvest...)
And a selection of locally made jams, also from an area i grew up in...

Last but not least the local chocolate covered dried apricot and peach delicacy FruChos... YUM!!


I have it on good authority that the aroma of the whole package was delicious and she couldn't wait to get into it!!

Oh, that looks so wonderful and fluffy. Cheesy Nice extras as well.

(My partner received a week ago and still hasn't posted pictures. I might have to resort to nagging. Tongue )

It really was the nicest package ever!!

It's taken me forever to post pics too!!
There's just not enough time over the Dec/Jan period!!

You got THAT right. Plus the cowl goes with everything. I'm so spoiled!

I absolutely adore the colours of that cowl, and the cufflink idea is very clever. Also, the soaps look divine.

the AMAZING sunshine cowl Scotskipper made for me...
I had to take the photos at night, cuz it's just a little warm for a cowl during the day here, being summer and all!!

I should have realized -- fun fur with cotton yarn is still FUR. Tongue Now working on something summery.

I love both the cowls.  That is a great use for fun fur stuff.  As much as I hate fun fur, I bet it makes it extra warm.

First off - many thousand apologies for not being very active on the gallery here.  The whole house had a flu (including my dog) so life has been interesting and germ filled.

Now... to spam you all with my gorgeous goodies... which I received about a week ago Smiley  I also received a cute little package with some salt licorice (very interesting tasting.  I've let a few people try it and it's sort of hit or miss whether they like it.  My one friend adored it and I thought she was going to run away with it)... and a super sweet adorable little bird ornament.  I do not have a picture of the bird ornament b/c I loved it so much he never made it into my house,  Smiley  He is hanging in my car Smiley

1.  My gorgeous package.  My bird ornament has a similar colour scheme Smiley


2.  And it gets more gorgeous inside!


3.  My cute little note card.  I forgot to put one in her package b/c I was so excited about sending it out....


4.  Yummy yummy candies Smiley  Sort of mint-like with a chocolate center.  And the prettiest china-patterned wrappers!


5.  OMG.  The most amazing thing I have ever had.  I ADORE strawberry filled chocolate.


6.  My beautiful cowl Smiley  It is so soft and warm.  And it goes lovely with my red coat, especially with the fabulous red button there Smiley


7.  I pretty much squealed out loud when I saw this.  For one thing, I cannot knit.  So knitting at all amazes me.  But...


8.... Look at this amazing detail!!!  Such perfect teeny stitches.


9.  I'm in awe.  I love this.  I wear it pretty much constantly Smiley  Cable!!!  I don't even know how to wrap my head around cables!  Lol.


So as you can see, I was quite spoiled and had the most amazing swap partner ever Smiley  I love love love every bit of everything Smiley
