Jean Jeanie!!!

Now it's a fact, I do love my jeans. 

When I am not at work, I'm more likely to be seen in a pair of jeans than any other item of clothing.

I have jeans in sizes 12, 14 and 16 due to my ever fluctuating weight.
But... came as a surprise to me just how many pairs of jeans I currently own.

We go on holiday (to Scotland - no surprise there!) on Saturday and as I have managed to lose a few pounds or so I decided that I needed to try on the aforementioned jeans to see which ones currently fit.

It took a while ... seems that I have amassed 22 pairs of jeans!!!

I was gobsmacked - guess who doesn't need to buy any more jeans for a while?

A couple of thank yous

Eeek!!! How long since my last post???
(Hangs head in shame)

Ok let's skip the excuses and get straight to the nitty gritty!

I have been lucky enough to receive not one but two lovely swap parcels recently.

First up is this bundle of loveliness from Wendy at a little crafting bird.

All wrapped up in beautiful organza and ribbon ...

...and inside...

A summery ceramic jelly mold with lemons on it, a delightful bunch of handmade button and felt flowers, pretty cupcake photo frame, lovely hand decorated tea light holder and a bundle of the most fabulous selection of ribbons and lace. How cute is that little cat on the handmade card? Oooh and look - yummy sweeties too.I love it all, thanks so much Wendy for being my swap partner.

My second parcel of loveliness was from Jenny at the gingerbread house.

Jenny was my partner for the Faith, Hope and Charity Swap.

Such lovely goodies - a vintage Womans Weekly from the 1980's, a pretty handmade pincushion using vintage embroidery, the most delightful vintage style necklace and just wait till you see what is in the little green box ...

...the most gorgeous vintage playing cards - aren't they delightful?
Another big thank you to Jenny.

Once I know that both of my swap parcels have reached their homes, I'll let you have a little look at what I sent.

Bye for now xx
