Heart swap!

I signed up for my first swap recently. A heart swap organised by Mollycupcakes. I usually spot these after they have happened and have always been a little envious as they look such fun. I've always liked making up parcels and sending them off as much as I like receiving them! I think this explains why I enjoyed working as a postie so much in my student days and then went on to help run a little music label that specialised in creating packages and mail art (more on that story another day!) for all our releases. I was paired up with lovely Lisa aka Vintage Girl and this morning received this enticing pile of parcels...

So I made a cup of tea, sat in the sun and unwrapped each parcel, one by one and discovered lots of lovely homemade treats, chocolates, fairy lights, ribbon, a heart tray and a sweet bag to keep them all in.

Thank you so much Lisa, they are all lovely. I really love the fairy lights, I have a weakness for these so I'll looking forward to putting them up this evening and enjoying them with one of my yummy heart chocolates (yes, I've already had one!). And I love the handmade brooch and union jack heart. Both beautifully made and really pretty.

Here's a peek of what I sent to Lisa, but you will have to pop over to her to see what's inside the bag...
