I'm joining in with Abi at Creatingpaperdreams to bring together one photograph and up to twenty words.
In their thirty day lifespan,
they fill the earth with grace and beauty.
During our much longer lives
So, onto other things. I would love to say hello and welcome to my new followers Karen and Mairead and to all you lovely people who keep coming along for the ride. Whether it be your first or thirtieth visit- Thank You :)
I've had a lovely week this week, busy as usual what with Class Assemblies to practice, A school production to write and Parent Teacher conferences to do, but it was all good stuff- and you know me the more I have going on the more I do...So overall it was a good week. I thought I'd share some love this week...I know it's a bit late for Valentine's Day, but I was on the receiving end of a lovely swap and thought I'd share it with you.
I'd taken part in the Share the love Swap, organised by madaboutbags and had paired up with Lizzy .
After quite a while en route- and no doubt sitting in Malaysian customs for a while- I went to pick up my parcel of goodies at the post office. I sat down with a brew and savoured opening the packages, slowly and carefully.
It was lovingly wrapped in pink tissue paper- all with a heart, red or pink, love theme.
There was a cute little tin filled with heart shaped chocolates- with caramel inside, and a larger heart chocolate - they didn't last long!
There were two handmade gorgeous smelling bath bombs, a little heart candle and a spool of 'With love' ribbon. It seems too nice to use:)
To top it all, Lizzy had sent over a homemade felt heart and pom pom banner. I just love it.
For my part of the bargain- I'd sent over a heart printed t shirt, a pink pen and love notebook and a set of heart postcards- which were so good, I ended up buying myself a set too.
I found some heart shaped biscuits
and lots of little crafty bits that had a heart theme.
I was really pleased I'd taken part in the swap- It was fun receiving something in the mail- but it was also a lot of fun looking out for stuff to send. A big 'Thanks' to Lizzy for all my lovely gifts.
Out shopping last week, I spotted this metal sign and loved the sentiment behind it. Even better it was so cheap I just had to buy it- and then share the love with you guys.
See - Doesn't that feel better?
Love to you all,
