It's me! It's meeeee! I received a very awesome package from aada today! I will be posting pictures tonight now! (Ok so I took a little longer than expected...)

(Now to find that pesky USB cord...)  Cheesy

Here they are, my lovely P&P items!!!

First a tea tray... I will never put anything wet near it, it's too pretty! I love the bird.  Smiley


Next a very cool letter box. Yes, that is how you spell my first name, lol!  Cheesy


Inside picture of said box, plus the two additional smalls aada and I agreed upon.


Last is my favorite of all... A Pemberley bag!!! I love the looooong straps so I can sling it across like a messenger! The blue corduroy is also super soft!


Here's a shot of the inside material of the bag, very Darcy/Elisabeth-esque!



Thank you, thank you, thank you, aada for a wonderful swap! Your package is in Jacksonville last I checked. I hope you enjoy your items as much as I have mine!  Cheesy

I received my package from scotskipper403 on Friday night and promptly wore some of the beautiful things she sent me to a family event on Saturday! Behold my first received swap items!


Everything together plus an Altoid tin (we don't have them in Australia)


Cute teapot earrings and super cool Darcy pin Smiley


Gorgeous shawl with cute bead. I love the colour!


Pretty scarf from the Smithsonian.

I wore the scarf and the shawl at my aunty's wedding anniversary party and was told by all her friends how lovely I looked! So thanks scotskipper! I love it all. Smiley

Alright I've received From Knit_core a long time ago but I'm just posting the pictures now. (sorry Knit_core!) But look at what the Lady sent to me!

A plume for my long letters, a Sweet Green knitted neck warmer, A lil' Colin firth/Mr.Darcy that has remained on my bed, a tin of yummy Jasmine tea, and the piece de resistance, (something that I has wisted) a book/journal


How sweet is that?
I love it all. And I even sent mine - I hope you love it too!

Someone needs to organize another one of these!! I was just thinking I wanted to post it in "new Themes" and lo! Here I stumble upon it here. After the holiday fun, this should be a MUST for a second round ^^
