HOLA! I am back from koala land! Or should I say, RAINVILLE! It rained SO much on Monday!! I think my shoes are probably still not 100% dry!
We had a great time and I will post photos this week. I am more excited about what was waiting on my doorstep at midnight when I arrived home!
This baby was an unexpected treat!! I LOVE mail and parcels in particular!! (Who doesn't, right!?). It was from my lovely lovely Mum. Here's what she sent me:
|I'd been looking at gilets in Sydney!!!|
|Can you see what's on this dress?? That's right - FLAMINGOS!!!|
|Belated Easter chocs and some other choc goodies..apparently there was a blue egg to match the yellow smarties egg....but my niece ate it!! haha!|
|My FAVOURITE crisps EVER - which you can't get here in NZ :D|
|Lush earrings and some woollen winter booties in my fav colour coral, knitted by an elderly family friend :)|
What a wonderful surprise :D
Today I also received my hair accessory swap parcel from Tiffany in the USA - it took under a week to arrive, wow! Here are the fab items she made me:
|Cute wrappings :)|
|I love this headband and it is totally something I will wear! It came unstuck in the post so I will have to mend it first.|
|Lovely clips, I'm particularly excited about the comb as I recently saw one in a magazine and thought I'd like to try this look!|
A great swap! Here's a little peek at what I sent her - you can see we both thought quite alike!!!
|Three hair clips. Do you know how hard it is to find hair clip bases in NZ?! Impossible :(|
|A yo you hairband. The first yo yos I EVER made. I am now addicted to them!!|
|Close up of the back of the flower.|
So the postman has been busy with me lately! I am currently participating in a NEW swap - a chocolate swap with Gem from Cupcake Crazy Gem. If you have a sweet tooth, you should definitely check out her blog for some drool inducing inspiration!
I am planning on doing a tutorial for some of the items I made above. If you have a preference of which one you would prefer first, let me know :)
Have a great day! XOXO
