1  Re: 2019 Make-A-Friend Revival: Miniature Version Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by seeuudee on: April 28, 2019 01:24:44 AM
I received my parcel from Rhinoceroses a couple of days ago, but only just had a chance to get photos up.

First up, the envelope had the cutest tape decorating it. (The letter had lovely tape as well, but I just loved this one so much!)


The handcrafted element was some gorgeous handmade cards - two of them have slots to add different pictures in, such a clever idea. And they had gorgeous envelopes to go with them.






Then some yummy food items - funnily enough, I had never seen these 'Kind' bars before the other day, when I noticed them in a coffee shop. I didn't get one then, so pleased to get the chance to try them. And some white chocolate Reeses cups.


Some cute tissues, some cuter push pins and some tea - it sounds amazing!


And a lovely note pad and pen. My shopping list note pad only has a couple of pages left, so the timing is perfect.


So lovely to get to know all about you, looking forward to crafting for you  Kiss

So, Strawberry and her new best friend, Peanut, arrived home before the weekend, but I was away all weekend, so only just had a chance to take and upload pics.

First up, I was amazed that Homerof2 managed to get everything in such a small envelope, but then was amazed to find this -

A note was included to say that I just needed to cut their bags open to release them!

The parcel included a lovely note, a photo album full of pics....


And the most lovely coaster, which is already on my desk.


In the photo album, there were more gifts, Homerof2's favourite gum (have not had a chance to try it yet, but looking forward to trying it, sounds amazing!) and a polar bear magnet. I am not sure whether you knew this or not, Homerof2, but I adore polar bears so much, so this made me squeal.


My favourite page in the photo album is this one, with Strawberry wearing her borrowed sunglasses Cheesy


And finally, released from their travelling bags, they soon appeared to be right as rain!


Thank you for a fantastic swap  Kiss

Sorry for the sideways pic, but we had to take one last pic before Orange climbed back in his box to start his journey home.

Bit embarrassed to share our snow pic!!

The coldest it has got in the UK is -13C (not sure what the F is  Huh) but that was right up in Scotland, so pretty much as far north as you can get. Here in the south we have been down to about -3C or so and had just a little snow, so Orange and I made a tiny snowman. I was going to find bits to make a face, but we wimped out and came back inside!  Grin

My parcel from Mariak actually arrived yesterday, but hubby didn't let me know until late.

I managed to take pics before ripping into everything, because it all looked so lovely. And I have been so spoilt, 3 great books (I have already started the Cat Cafe one), two pretty bookmarks with great quotes and one that shows off my house pride, some chocolate that I am looking forward to tucking into and 3 lovely hot chocolates to enjoy.

Before I opened everything -



Picture of everything together -


Bookmarks, chocolate and a pretty card -


And the three books -




All so different and all sound amazing!

Thank you Mariak for a fantastic parcel and thank you kittykill for organising us all.

Strawbz has a phobia about the colour Lime Green I got quite the laugh when I read this before she arrived my craft room is lime green how was she going to spend time in there??  Not a problem, I thought, one she arrives I'll make her a pair of sun glasses so she can enter that room.  This morning I convinced Mr. Potato Head to lend her a pair of his, gave them dark lenses, placed them on her face (thanks to hubby's help) and she got to see my craft room for the first time.

That is hilarious!  Grin Of all the colours she could have had a phobia about and she picked the colour of your craft room! Love it  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

We have had quite a busy weekend! Yesterday mum and I had an afternoon tea that has been in planning since September! We originally couldn't find a date we could both make, then we managed to finally book something and my aunt ended up in A&E, so we had to postpone. I think it was all meant to be, as a local pub has just started doing afternoon teas in their Gin Lounge. I don't know about America, but gin has become huge in the UK recently. The pub started their Gin Lounge last year and had about 10/12 different gins. This year they have around 35!! Their afternoon tea starts with a glass of prosecco, you have a traditional afternoon tea (sandwiches, scones with jam and cream and cakes), with the accompanying tea being optional, and you also choose 3 different gins, with mixers, from their menu. They have set it up in a huge marquee and it is so beautifully set up - the ceiling lights sparkle, it is so pretty.



We had to take a sneaky pic with the gin and tonics, because Orange is not of legal drinking age yet. We waited until the waitress was serving another table to grab a pic   Roll Eyes



And then today we met with a friend to potter around a Christmas market that had been set up in nearby gardens. The gardens are lovely to wander round, but the weather was not right for that today, but we did have a ride on the little steam train. Orange held tight to my friend, as it was a little blustery and he didn't want to get lost on the tracks along the way!  Wink

My dad is back off home to France soon, so we went out for dinner before he left. We had to finally admit that Christmas is actually quite close now!

My dad has been visiting, so nothing too exciting going on, but we did have afternoon tea Cheesy



We also met up with my brother and his family and had a walk along the pier and spent (wasted  Roll Eyes) a little money on the 2p slider games.

Loving the pic of Peanut in the snow! And I absolutely love that your hubby is enjoying this as well.

On Saturday Orange came with me to a fundraising quiz night. We called our team the Wooden Spoons and that was our aim, but we came in second to last, so didn't even manage that  Roll Eyes However, it was a fun evening with some good friends. Orange stuck to just tonic, but I have to admit enjoying a little gin with mine Cheesy And then he helped me check raffle numbers - we won a bottle of wine, so good end to the evening.


And then on Sunday, whilst out food shopping and stopping for a coffee, we came across these cute hare sculptures who had been decorated in poppies for Remembrance Sunday. In fact they were all over the place, even wrapped around tree trunks. It was so lovely to see.
