I'm glad you liked it all! I really was trying for a small package...but I got spoiled just as much too, so we're even! Grin

My photos aren't as clear as they should be either. We're having bad storms here at the moment so I had to take it inside.

I got loads of lovely goodies for my stocking, and everything smells so wonderful!
Hanging things are; clove orange, fabric Liberty inspired bird and gorgeous heart
There are yummy smelling soaps (I love handmade soaps!), fabric covered buttons, beautiful beaded bracelet, keychain notebook & really cute tin of supplies


Heart, orange & bird decorations up on my tree

(next year this is going to be all bird things!)

Thanks for being such a wonderful swap partner, Edel! Grin

Ok, so here is the package I received from Hawkeyes_Girl. I'm sorry they are late, we've been having quite a dilemma with Grams adjusting to the nursing home. She punched and kicked a nurse this morning and they want to move her AGAIN to a different unit in the building.  Roll Eyes

But Hawkeyes_girl's package is helping me recover from the family dilema stress in the following ways:



First, I open up this lovely silk pouch.



Then, I take out the apple pie wax melts it contains and make my home smell like heaven.



I put on my new pretty red cotton kaftan.



Then, my gorgeous new wired jewelry set.



action shot!



Then, I crawl into bed with my new learn to knit kit, with knitting needles in one of my fav colors-pink!



If I'm not up to knitting, I reach for my hand-bound book, and write out some of my belly dance choreography notes.



Ganesha, remover of obstacles reminds me to practice those harder moves...



or, if I feel so inclined, I may just color for the fun of it!



THANKS SO MUCH HAWKEYE! This package has definitely brought some light into a very stressful time. Blessed be!  Smiley Smiley Smiley

Oh, Saturn, I'm sorry to hear about the problems with Grams again. She really keeps you on your toes.  Undecided Mine threw away her carbon monoxide detector after she pulled it out of the outlet, it was beeping (draining batteries). My dad really flipped about that one, considering how expensive and nice the detector was.

Ah, the fun of family!  Wink

Our carbon monoxide detector went off last week. We immediately opened all the windows and doors...its was chilly. After taking the unit outside it was still going off. We replaced it's batteries and it stopped beeping. It did not do the "low battery" chirp though, it did the full on alarm. We'll never know of there was danger present or if it was just the battery, lol. We had it to close to our gas stove so that could have been a factor too. Tell your dad that those detectors have to be replaced every 5 years. They will beep for that reason too.
