Golden Autumn Swap

Good evening everyone, hope your week is going well.

A couple of months or so ago, the wonderful Blueberry Heart organised her annual Autumn swap, and I was so lucky to be partnered by the lovely Linda.  I was so, so delighted as Linda was my first ever swap partner way back in my first year of blogging - you can read all about it here.

After a hard day at work, weather not particularly inspiring either, imagine my excitement when arriving home to find the postie had been - I ripped open the envelope in great excitement!  Would you like to see inside?

First up is a lovely, autumnal card with a sweet message from Linda inside...

Then some cute hand warmers, will be lovely on my winter walks...

hot chocolate, will have this later, we are planning a movie evening watching Sleepy Hollow...

Vintage buttons - love these...

A fabulous felted brooch, this will be finding its way onto my jacket tomorrow morning...

A pretty autumnal bracelet modelled by my darling daughter (yes dear, I will have it back now thank you!!)

A beautiful heart - hung up in my living room...

Funky tray, I needed a nice new one as my current ones are looking rather sad and worn...

A lovely transfer sheet of an autumnal country scene...

And a very stylish bag, this is going to look so much nicer than my usual Asda bags when carrying my things in and out of school (on teacher training they never warn you about how much stuff you will need to carry around on a daily basis!!)

And here is everything together:

Linda, you have been, once again, a truly brilliant swap partner.  Thank you so, so much for everything, you have really spoiled me.  And with everything that has been going on recently, this has been a real pick-me-up.  Bloggers are the best!!

Have a lovely evening, Helenxx
