I recieved from Le Mieux this morning and it was well worth the wait.

Perhaps the funniest book ever written (on Ashtead) and Moulin Rouge coasters.

A cosmetic bag and strawberry pasties.

An elevenses tea towel.


A Pimms tea towel!

I absolutely LOVE all of it...what lovely way to be woken in the morning!

Thanks so much Le Mieux.

i'm just so glad it arrived!! and of course that you like it  Cheesy

the teatowels were a bit of a bugger to embroider, i've not tried them before. but it was a great experience! plus i found out quite a bit about my tiny posho village whilst doing this swap, which is great (home of the dude who narrates Dragons Den. yeah, you're all jealous now!!  Cheesy )

Wow - everything in the gallery is amazing, so creative! Smiley

I received from the lovely missdolly last week (I have been appalingly slow at getting pictures up, especially as I am so excited by my package - but sadly my life has mainly been spent at work - even the pictures are sneaked on my desk at work so I haven't had a chance to upload them until now).

Anyhow - missdolly completely spoiled me!

She sent me this cute little book bag (how she knew I love to read I am really not too sure!) And filled it with information and a couple of books about haunted Liverpool (I am saving these for when we go camping next as scary stories and camping is a bit of a tradition!)

In the books were these amazing bookmarks:

Which are already in use! Smiley Thank you!

And... yes, there is more...

All these lovely things  Grin mini bubble bath/shower gels, the most delicious smelling candles (strawberry and champagne - excellent combination) kitty collars - Titan and Quaffle (our two kitties were super happy to be thought of and they look very handsome in their new attire -though they would not let me get a picture to prove it!) Marbles - I did try to take a picture of them because they are beautiful, but it turns out I couldn't do them justice (they're in the little bag, and they came with a little accompanying book about Marbles) They are to represent the glass that is made local to where missdolly lives! Smiley And my husband has claimed them for his own!
Missdolly also included a few postcards - they're already up on my noticeboard and some worry dolls (they're on one of the postcards) - I have never had worry dolls before, though I have always admired them and I have been having quite a stressful time at work recently so these are totally in use!

But wait, there is even more! (Like I said, spoiled much?!)

The most giant sock monkey ever! He is amazing - in red and white which is the local rugby club colours. Love him and have named him Gerald. He is in pride of place on the shelves in my craft room.
Also - a big piece of material which has lots of different things, spider web, music etc sort of printed on in a sketched way - can't wait to make something with this!
A little zipper pouch and keyring which I have already put to good use to store all my work ID and keys Smiley (I feel so much more organised now). Missdolly made some cute glass-marble magnets (If you look super carefully they are in the picture Wink) which are holding things onto the filing cabinet in my office to brighten the place up a bit! Smiley
And finally, a lovely tote bag - I opened the parcel with a couple of my work colleagues (who were super impressed by everything) but they both said that the bag was very 'me' and I do absolutely love it! Have been carrying it around neatly folded and got green clubcard points in Tesco using it the other day!

Thank you so much missdolly - you have been awesome I love everything completely! Thank you!
