Valentine Swap

Mucho excitement here this weekend..aswell at being the other halfs 'stag', my brother and sister in law came down to stay with my new (and only) niece and...I got a parcel from Nola, my Valentines swap goodies.

I waited until Sunday sfternoon when they had gone home (Claire doesn't share pressies lol!!)and enjoyed opening....
pretty parcels with paper butterflies between.....

Nola has put so much thought into my is so personal for ME....and ME is feeling a little neglected and sorry for myself lately so it was just what the doctor ordered.

I may have mentioned my wedding once or twice ;) and Nola has themed some gifts for my special day...

A painted box frame for displaying wedding day treasures and a handmade garter - gorgeous!! No picture of it on my thigh I'm afraid...I wouldn't inflict that on anyone!!

The other parcels contained a pretty pink heart hanger, a fab felt heart garland (which is now strung in my spare room so I will take a more flattering picture of it later!!) and a beautiful button bag with embroidered panel...

Also some cards with Valentines recipes - one for Tuscan Pork which I can't wait to try, Sticky Toffee Pudding and a South African recipe for milk tart....(yum!)I absolutely love everything and I am very touched by how much thought has gone into making these things for me. Thank you so much xx
