This morning I came home from work to find a parcel from the States on my kitchen bench. For all you who don't know, I work 21 hour shifts, so I was away all night. If a parcel arrives my DH leaves it out for me, often with a cryptic note, like "what have you bought now"?
Anyhoo, I checked this parcel, it's from the States.
Now, I know I haven't bought anything from you gals recently, so this is very mysterious. Turning over the parcel, what do I see. It's from Joan of Joan's Journey's, my Parasol & Paper Swap partner.
She did email to say she had posted my parcel, getting in early because of new bubbies & stuff (helloo, Sydney Ann).
So, here in all their glory are my gorgeous swap items. Joan, they are sooo lovely, how did you know I would love all these pretties.
Isn't it so exciting, look at all that pretty rosey paper & a card, addressed to me.
Such a pretty card & envelope, with roses, & the prettiest (pink of course) little scrapping book, with a PINK PARASOL, & a pretty pink fridge magnet. Joan thinks the lady looks a bit like a parasol. I think so too.
Parcel number 2 held these goodies, gorgeous little French style booklet/journal. I shall keep this in my bag, I am always scribbling down stuff. A lovely mini photo album (yep, we still do have photos), just beautiful, & darling little napkins. I love the chocolate brown & pink combination, gorgeous. Can you read what it says? "So many chocolates, so little time". A girl after my own heart, is Joan.
Is this not the most gorgeous pile of goodies. Thank you so much Joan. Everything is just beautiful, I love it (big smiles).
I know you were early, but now, like the White Rabbit said, I feel late. (Hmmm, now where did I put that paper I was putting in with the Parasol... heck, where is the Parasol?)
Just kidding Joan.
Hugs, Coll :-}
