Advent calendar door 14 and Christmas Cracker Swap

Hello everyone.

A few weeks ago Tracey organised her annual Christmas Cracker Swap, and I was partnered with Joy. 

A couple of days ago a very exciting box arrived with a lovely little illustration on the label...

Ooooh look what is in the box...
Who knew so much could fit into a kitchen roll middle?

A pretty card with a sweet message inside...

So many thoughtful treats were unwrapped - Christmas tissues...

cracker themed bookmark...

crafting materials...


lip balm...

and the fabric used for the outer wrap of the cracker is so sweet, I love that it says Joy on it!! 

Thanks so much Joy for being such a fab swap partner, I love everything you sent to me. 

Onto todays Advent Calendar picture - I think my head is still dreaming away of Nordic Winter, I love this picture of a Christmas tree against a backdrop of the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights)...

Have you put up your Christmas tree yet? 



  1. What a lovely cracker
    I love the Christmas tree picture, reminds me for some unknown reason of my favourite cartoon Noggin the Nog - don't know why........

  2. Wow, fabulous parcel to arrive and I love that illustrated label. I'm very early with my decorations and tree this year, I think Julie and her calendar has made me unusually festive!! x

  3. Love the cracker...haven't done a thing yet and I'm about to panic! xx

  4. What a wonderful swap, there is nothing nicer than a parcel to open and look upon.

  5. What a delightful swap - so many lovely little thoughtful gifts :) Our tree is up but as for the rest of festive type things - nope, lots to do!

  6. Wow, your swap gift was fantabulous! Lucky you! Yes, our tree is up.. and sparkling away. I am having a luncheon tomorrow for my sisters and friend Shirley. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  8. What a fun package! Swaps are fun. I've only ever participated in one, and my partner was from Australia. If I ever see another one going on, I'm going to join it.

  9. A fun swap, Helen! If you visit my last post you can see my tree with my baby granddaughter laying down underneath it admiring the lights :) xx
