Jar Of Love Swap

Two posts in one day, wow!

Very excited about this one!  Last month I was paired up the the very lovely Shelley from All 4 Meggy Moo in Katie's Jar of Love swap.

After lots of blog stalking and a few emails, we filled our jars and popped them in the post yesterday.
Mine arrived at lunchtime.........................

I unwrapped the paper and opened the box to be greeted with gorgeous yellow tissue paper and a note

Careful unwrapping of the tissue revealed the most prettiest crochet jar cover I've ever seen!

OOh and I was soooo spoilt by Shelley! My jar was crammed full of wonderful things!

Crochet flower brooch and crochet jug cover both made by Shelley and some lovely heart cookie cutters

Twine, sparkly beads, crochet heart and handmade needle case

11 StUnNiNg vintage glass beads in a pretty tin

A beautiful glass charm to hang at the window to make rainbows in the room and some sweet dotty cake cases.

Thank you so so much Shelley for my fabulous jar! I hope yours has arrived safely and you are as thrilled as I am!!  And thank you Katie for organising such a super swap!

Much Love
