Christmas in July

As i was feeling bored out of my skull watching tv and browsing old magazines and didn't feel like crafting as my poor fingers are still throbbing after hand-sewing the apron from my last post, not to mention the weather isn't improving but getting worst, I heard the postman dropped something heavy on my doorstop.

It's a package from my swap partner Jane at apocketfullofdaisys, I was squealing like a five year old and almost forgot to take pics in my moment of happiness to recieve these goodies! I joined Faith Hope and Charity Swapping and was partnered with the lovely creative Jane. It feels like Christmas in July when I opened the box :)

Great minds think alike! both she and I didn't know what we're going to send to each other and lo and behold! we sent each other a pair of cute candle holders! love the floral design on them!

she also sent me a teacup hanger, absolutely loving it, it's adorable!

She also spoil me with these cute wooden napkin rings with its lovely box.

..along with these lovely napkins, how perfect is that! :)

I really really love this beautiful bracelet she sent me as well, it's more beautiful than the one i made for her, gorgeous!!

and a sweet card that's just too cute! Can't thank you enough! x

Thank you for all the gifts, Jane! I love them all! Do visit her and follow her as she's having a lovely giveaway!

I do love swapping and this is my first time joining a swap, I heard that Faith Hope and Charity Swapping will have another swapping event near christmas. Would love to participate again!
