You can read all about my parcel to my friend & Valentines Blythe swap partner Tamar, on my earlier post here.
This post details all the amazing lovely gifts Tamar chose for me. Ooooooh I cannot tell you how exciting it was to open a gift from a fellow crafty who would know exactly all the things that I would love. So so nice! With everything Tamar is going through, she's gone well over & above anything I could ever expect. She's amazingly generous. I am hunbled & tears flowed as I opened each parcel.
And forget something Valentines, something Blythe & something extra. She's gone all out with so much more....
Beautifully packaged parcels all in Valentine red, lovely twine, crocheted flowers, washi tape & crisp white doilies...
First up is this gorgeous jar of amazing treasure & with a pin cushion lid. I absolutely adore it. Unfortunately it got smashed in the travels from QLD to Adelaide but everything inside was perfect & the lid was perfect. All I need to do is find a jar with same width and I will so proudly put this in my sewing room and cant wait to use all the beautiful little trims, beads & notions. Its absolutely glorious and so VERY up my alley. Maybe my favourite thing but I love it all so much.
For the moment I'm keeping all this loveliness in a red spotty bowl but you can see below all the amazing little pretties that were inside the jar.
And here is all the other bits & pieces. Oh my, look at all those goodies!
Some pretties for me! I love my bracelet & my girls have been asking to try it on all afternoon too! And I love this hair clip. With thick hair its rare to find a barette that will hold my hair. This does. So so pleased, it is so gorgeous!
Two absolutely gorgeous Blythe hats. I love the pom poms and the little knitted leaves. Can't wait to photograph my dollies in these very soon!
Well Tamar shares my love of all things stationery so she knew I would totally love these. The most gorgeous little notebook from Philosophy & a rainbow pack of fineliner extra fine point ink pens which I LOVE so much. I am always using pen sets & these are so perfect for my art journaling.
And she thought of everything.... Chocolates for me & Jeff to share & even a chocolate for each of my children too.
Absolutely gobsmacked Tamar. Couldn't have wished for a better parcel of goodies if I tried. I love everything. You are so so generous. Thank you thank you thank you xoxoxoxo And I hope you get some huge rest in the coming days after round 6 of Chemo today. All my love xo
The swap has been such a thrilling experience for me. Connecting with these women with all the exact wants & loves & hobbies is such a joy in my life and to then be part of a swap. Bliss.
And a huge thank you too, to my friend Georgie for organising the swap. I cannot wait until the next swap. Super super exciting!
