Thank You Yvonne Xx......

I received a lovely treat today...from Yvonne at Country Bliss.

It was my SCC swap for January, this months theme being inspired by Cath Kidston.

For me, the build up to opening is just as big a treat :)
I like to sit and look at my parcel first...

And I love it when a parcel has little parcels inside :)

Inside was a cute polka dot mug, a lovely linen lavender filled heart (the whole parcel smelled gorgeous), a photo frame decoupaged with CK ( I will find a picture of me and the other half to go in here) and fab crocheted garland.

Now my photography is nearly as rubbish as my camera, I feel the need to have a chat about purchasing a new one! The crocheted garland is so colourful , all the more fabulous as I can't (or won't!) crochet...I will be saving this for my soon to be done bedroom (oops our bedroom, Mary its easy done isn't it!!!), where it will be strung across the fireplace. The picture frame will look great on my new bedside table too.

Thank You very much Yvonne. My parcels lovely contents has brightened up this drizzly day. I love our swaps that we do over at SCC, I love that we have a theme and we all interpret it differently....or sometimes the same :).

I've just about got everything sorted for the Valentines swap organised by thrifty mrs, so if you are reading Nola, keep a look out!!!!

Hi, hope you don't mind me stopping by your blog but I saw a link on the Flossie & Tom blog and couldn't resist a peek :)

Those swap goodies are gorgeous, not surprised you're pleased! I'm looking forward to the valentines swap too, I've wrapped some of my swap-ee's goodies and then wrapped them up together in a box so I'm glad to know that that will hopefully be a good thing!!!

Love your charity shop finds by the way, very pretty.
