Wonderful gifts from the U.S.A!!

Good evening all, hope the week is treating you well.

A couple of weeks ago I received a fantastic parcel all the way from America - it was from the lovely Brook!  We were partnered together in the Blog Love Swap.

And was I in for a treat!  This was my first ever international swap so you can just imagine the excitement.  It arrived in a very big box


And my goodness, the treats that awaited me... first of all was this sweet notebook, so very suitable for me...


What a wonderful quote.  This notebook will be treasured and used for special writings.

Next out of the box...


I cannot begin to describe how delightful this coffee is!  I love a good mug of coffee!

So, lovely Brook supplied a great mug to make it in, plus 2 lovely lollipops


Brook has really taken care to look at my blog before sending this parcel - just look what she made for me


My very own Moonstruckcreations notecards - how cool - and thoughtful - is that?

This sweet ornament sums up the sentiments of the Valentines season. 

And last - but by no means least - a big bag of Hershies Kisses yum yum yum, how I love American candy!!!!


Thank you so so very much Brook for being such a wonderful swap partner. 

These are the things that I sent to Brook:


Hope you liked them Brook!

see you all soon, Helenxx
