Faith Hope and Charity Shopping Christmas Swap

I was torn to open the gifts from my swap partner An Alien World sent me before christmas, the tempation to unwrap those gifts were so great but being so busy preparing christmas meal helped and just like a child, i did the unwrapping at 7am on Christmas day! Here are the lovely things she sent me;

She sent me a beautiful "Homemade Gifts Vintage Style" book which i did a quick peek inside the book for photo purposes and already loving it! can't wait to sit back, have a cup of tea and read it properly.

totally love the pics inside the book and already cant wait to make something from the tutorials inside :)

next, she sent me this totally adorable compact powder....sweet and oh so romantic!

and last but not least, a beautiful embroidered reindeer heart shaped decoration, it's still on my christmas tree! I love it!

Thank you soo much Alice for the gifts, i adore them and i also adore your cute handmade card, love the cute tea pot and cups in there, just lovely! it's been so much fun doing the swap, I want to thank Lakota at Faith Hope and Charity Shopping for hosting the Christmas swap, i can't wait to join again next time!

next post will be about the gifts that you lovely ladies sent me on Christmas, as soon as i finished taking pics of them :) But I want to thank you first, i love the beautiful cards everyone sent and the lovely and thoughtful gifts i recieved too!


  1. What lovely swap gifts! That book is on my amazon wish list! It looks fantastic! You'll have to tell me about it once you've had a look!

    What did you send? xxx

  2. What great swap pressies! I will have to try and take part in the next swap :)
    I like the look of the book, do share anything you end up making from it. The compact is adorable. Is the card made using pieces of fabric?

  3. I have that book and its incredible, ive got my eye on several of the projects - what an amazing swap parcel! Very much looking forward to seeing your gifts :o) Scarlett x

  4. Beautiful gifts. Lucky you!

  5. Your gifts are lovely Susan!!! I just adore the little ornament...too cute:) I was like a little kid too, opening all my pressies my in-laws got me. They always spoil us rotten but I love it!

    I hope you have a wonderful New Years. Kyran and I go to bed so early that we'll most likely end up celebrating on English time haha:)

  6. I am so glad you liked the contents of the swap! Can't wait to see what you make out of the book ♥ xxx

  7. What sweet gifts from your friends. I wanted to mention to you that when I click on your link it comes up as "Profile Not Available." Not sure why it says that, but wanted you to know. Happy New Year, and I look forward to seeing more of your wonderful posts.

  10. Hi Susan, just catching up with all the swap posts now, Alice sent you such great things - I love them all. The book looks right up your street (and mine, although I mostly just read them and don't get around to making anything) and the decoration is gorgeous. Thanks for linking up x
