F.R.I.E.N.D.S. & other random bits.

I was delighted to receive my friends swap from Bekimarie on Friday. Beki organised the swap and the idea was to send an item beginning with each of the letters in the word friends. All of the items were initialed.

I had F- a very pretty decorated frame, R - lovely pink rose tealight holder, I - a gorgeous decorated inspiration box full of lots of inspirational goodies, E - really cute vintage egg cup.

N - a handmade notebook - too cute to use, D - a beautiful pink mug with roses on for drink

and finally S for soaps. As you can see Beki really spoilt me and I love all of it. Lily is still munching her way through the sweets, which her beady eyes found as soon as I opened the parcel!

Thankyou Bekimarie for the parcel and for organising the swap, it was such a fun swap to do.


I also received another lovely swap from Fabrose over at the SCC. This was a Spring/ Easter swap, which was slightly delayed as Fabrose was moving house. I had some lovely cards, embellishments, stickers and mini eggs, two pretty spool birds, which are now hanging off the leaves of my kitchen light fitting.

And these gorgeous handmade yoyo napkin holders with napkins.

Thankyou Rose for all my lovely goodies.


And these are the swap things that I've made/sent out first the FRIENDS swap to Bekimarie.
F- felt embroidered heart with friends on it, R - crochet rose brooch, I - Amigurumi icecream, E- embellishments, N- felt needlecase, D - die cuts, S - scrapbook papers.

And these went to Mary Poppins at the SCC for the May's kitchen swap, spotty espresso cups, Amigurumi cupcake, Eggs sign, teabag holder and an embroidered home sweet home felt heart.

I sent off for one of Snapdragon's toadstool badges and in return I had to take a photo of it which, may be used for a catalogue montage. It's a gorgeous badge, so cute as are these hand knitted socks. I wish I could say I knitted them but they were made by one of Jodie's friends Grandmother, very clever lady.

Some things I'm loving right now- bargain goodies from the garden centre.

Sweet Williams from my garden and my stripy crochet jar cover. (photo at top of post)

And finally being able to take a picture of a blue tit on the fat ball, albeit from a distance!

Now I ought to go and update the other blog. Have a great weekend.
