I have been meaning to show pictures of what I sent and received in the Goodie Swap for more than a week. The days just seem to fly by and even “falling back” on Saturday night didn’t help me to have more time. Maybe that’s because it was the weekend and we had to get out and enjoy the mild winter we’re having so far. Here’s DH and friends enjoying the classic Canadian winter pastime…
I am a terrible skater, but I love the freedom of skating on the lake. It often only lasts for a day or two before the snow gets too deep, but this year we’re hanging on and are up to a week of lake skating.
On to the Goodie Swap. I received two lovely packages. The first from Katy in Scotland. A colourful mug rug, a sweet Sherbet Pips bag and a couple of Scottish trinkets. Look at those tiny bottles of Scotch! And the cute Scottie dogs. The original macaroon bar is tasty and VERY sweet.
Look at the cute matching zipper pull….
My other package came from Linda in Ireland. Look at all the goodies she sent me !
Another interesting and colourful mug rug, a very pretty bag which is meant for sewing supplies but looks like it would also work well for art supplies, a classic needle case, lovely little purse and a fat quarter. Also a calendar with pictures from Ireland and two postcards.
Here is the back of the mug rug…great fabrics!
Here is what I sent….First to Kat in Scotland….. I had to steal the mug rug pictures from her blog as I forgot to take photos before I mailed them….
And this mug rug and bag went to Helen in England….
There were a few little goodies in the parcels as well, but I can’t remember to take pictures of everything.
Lovely swap. I’m not great at exuberance but…. Big thanks to Cindy for organizing it! And super thanks to Linda and Katy for my fabulous gifts!
