Cosy Autumn Swap

Hi everyone, hope you have had a great day.

Mine picked up considerably when the postie bought me a fab swap parcel - I was partnered with Tracy for the Cosy Autum Swap.  Oh my goodness, what a wonderful swap partner to have!  Are you ready for some cosy autumn loveliness?  OK, I shall begin!!

First up were these yummy smartie pumpkins - how cute are they??!!

Then some hot chocolate - delish!

Next up a lovely fabric pumpkin - I just love pumpkins and collect anything I can get my hands on that has a pumpkin theme!! 
Tracy had really done her research as she went for a pumpkin theme for the swap which is just so perfect
The time and care that went into this stunning crochet wreath had me gob-smacked!!

This scented wax tart is in the kind of perfume that I love, fruity and spicy at the same time!

I have never had such a posh box of tissues in my life!!  Makes my sniffles seem much more bearable....

I cant wait to wear this corsage with my new autumnal coloured dress, it will look so good!

This cheery fat quarter and autumnal ribbon will be put to very good use!

Finally, a pic of the whole haul of autumnal goodies:

Can you spot the pumpkin themed card?

 Im one very lucky girl - thanks so much Tracy for being such a fab and generous swap partner and for restoring my faith in swaps.  I say this because the last swap I was involved in during the summer  I sent off my parcel but then never heard anything back from my partner which was a shame, especially as it was one I was involved in organising!

If you ever join in a swap and get partnered with Tracy you sure are in for a treat!!

Have a cosy evening everyone - I have to say I quite like the darker evenings (yes, I know!!) as its nice to cosy up with the lamps on and candles lit.


PS will blog soon about what I sent to Tracy as I know she has received her parcel!
