Handmade Heart Swap

Soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo excited!
Mr Postie delivered a LoVeLy package this morning from the very lovely Anthea from Tales from Mount Pleasant.  I was paired up with Anthea for the Homemade Heart Swap arranged by the super Mary Poppins!  This was my very first swap!

Here's what arrived...............

Beautiful red tissue paper wrapped packages and a lovely note.

All my wonderful goodies!

Gorgeous smelling lavender heart

Pretty Love Heart buttons and an embroidered heart button.

 Beautiful green glass heart bead on a thong

Scrummy gingerbread cookies complete with the recipe and a lovely heart cutter!

And the most heart-stoppingly wonderful crochet heart bunting in cream, green, lilac and pink.

Oh Anthea, I'm so so thrilled with all my things, I've enjoyed the swap very much and loved getting to know you!

Anthea has written a beautiful post of the bits I sent her, do go and take a peek!
