OK, so I have discovered something today. SevsOnlyGirl does not follow her own rules... we were given specific dimensions for the size of the box for this swap and what did I receive from the postman this morning? A MASSIVE BOX that has to be at least TWICE THE SIZE of what the stated dimensions are!!!!!!!! OMG!!!!!! RULEBREAKER!!!!! FLOUTER OF RULES!!!!!!
I actually sat there on my couch staring at it... wondering what she could possibly have sent me - it was actually intimidating, it was so big!
But I am so glad I did - it also arrived just in time for my birthday... now that I am typing, I should have waited until tomorrow for that matter...
This is a pretty teal and black glittery cowl she made for me - I love this! I actually bought myself a butterfly scarf earlier this year that was in ombre teals with black butterflies - this is almost like the reverse of that scarf and I love it!!!!!
I love the pattern!
These are two Harry Potter themed ornaments - I love the curled page bits! I think I may incorporate these into a book themed wreath for the door, I will have to make sure they are not too big to fit between the two doors - otherwise they will hang above my reading nook as part of a kissing ball or something like that.
I love this - I could smell it just when I opened the box - it is a lime scented air freshener gel and it smells delicious - love it because I was just burning a citrus oil the other day and this smells even better than that - and there is no need to worry about the dog and open flame!
Yes please Dawn, I would love the recipe to make more!!!!!
This is a set of decorated blocks that say "Let It Snow" in silver - I love the blues and silver - and this will have to sit in my window when we decorate for the Holidays!!!!! This is why I need bay windows!!!
and this for sure will need to hand above my reading chair in my reading nook! The question is - reading nook on main floor, or reading nook in bedroom???
This is an adorably decorated birdhouse!! It is so cute - DH made me some birdhouses years ago and we put them in the birch trees in the front of the house. I loved watching the little finches make the little houses their home. However those houses eventually rotted... DH likes the new one a lot too and will put it up in the birches in the Spring. I love the little picket fence and "lawn" in the front - so cute!!!
Hopefully this shows the painting on the sides more.
As if all those handcrafted goodies are not enough, she also sent me so many thoughtful goodies - two pairs of seasonal socks - I have an unholy love of socks (I actually will say to DH that socks are sexy - at least cute socks are, not his manky work socks... or my works socks for that matter - just the cute patterned ones, especially if they are comfy and new). Halloween fabric - and a big piece of it - she suggested a tote bag... but I am tempted to make it into a Halloween scrub top or pans! A butterfly journal - am going to have to explore that later, and a colouring book and pencils - it looks fascinating. I think I may have to take that to work at nights for my break or slow periods... I do love playing with colour. Oh, and I almost forgot - animal origami kit - how cool is that?
Thank you so much Dawn - it was a great package and thank you for organizing too... even though your broke the rules
