Pressie Time

How exciting to get a parcel in the mail thankyou to Lisa over at Periwinkle (I would attach a link but I don't know how doh..... so if anyone would like to enlighten me !!) I was apprehensive about joining in a swap,what should I send, how much should I send,will she like it, what if she doesn't like it.... on and on and on
goes my little mind but in the end it was fine my swap partner Lisa was from my neck of the woods (Sunderland) so I knew we would be ok.
I'm very pleased with my parcel,each item was wrapped in lovely tissue paper and I feel very spoilt my husband and teenage son stood and watched me open it and my sons response was "I hope there's chocolate" and yes there was a lovely bar of Lavender chocolate,cant wait to try that. I love the knitted chicken and the lovely kitchen
cloths although I wont be using them to lift anything out of the oven (too nice for that) they will just hang around looking pretty.
So all in all my first swap went well and I hope Lisa liked my gifts to her.


  1. hey Karen, glad you liked it - did you like the robins ? I sent you an e-mail thanking you for your lovely presents - did you not get it?

  2. Lucky you, lovely things! xxx

  3. Karen, all my blog backgrounds are from the new 'design' button on here, have a look, the possibilities are endless! LOL xxx

  4. What wonderful gifts!! Love that knitted chicken, very cool!
    BTW - to make something into a link - in your new post, highlight [right click and drag your mouse over a word] the word and make it blue, then up at the top, click "link". It will bring up a little window where you put the url, and will be clickable!

  5. ooo i read that book it's great, what a lovely parcel to get in the mail :)
