Four Happy Things...

...a very happy blogswap!

I was paired with Ellie from Feltabulous.

The rules were simple, put together a parcel of four happy things.
  • One handmade.
  • One vintage, retro or kitsch.
  • One in a favourite colour.
  • One thing from childhood.
What an amazing partner Ellie was, just look what she sent me!

Four pretty parcels inside of which was ...

A lovely spring like card and...

  • A handmade felt heart, made with wool from Ellie's sister's sheep. It is absolutely gorgeous.
  • For favourite colour another handmade item, a beautiful macrame bracelet using agate, sodalite, fire agate, lapis lazuli, aventurine, quartzite and a polymer clay bead. 
How talented is Ellie?

  • For an item from childhood Ellie sent me Iced Gems and Lindt Bunnies. Whenever I used to visit my Aunt Mary she always used to give me Iced Gems so they definitely brought back childhood memories, and Lindt chocolate is one of my favourites so I was delighted with the bunnies.
  •  The vintage item was the fabulous plate. I literally gave a little squeal when I opened this, I absolutely adore it.
 Oh four very happy things indeed!!

Now to see what I sent Ellie I'm afraid I'll have to send you off to visit her blog post on the swap because as  usual I forgot all about taking any photographs until I had already wrapped everything up ready for the post.

  1. Dear Linda
    I am so glad you liked all the things. I really enjoyed taking part in the swap and you were a perfect swap partner! (I am also thrilled that you like the cake plate so much!)
    Best wishes

  2. What lovely gifts to receive, sounds like it was a very fun swap xx

  3. You're a very lucky girl. Great presses.
    Love from Mum

  4. I'd be too scared to send a plate in the post - you are brave, Amazonian women.

  5. I know this isn't your most recent post, but when I click on the link it just opens up your blog page and says the post doesn't exist! This isn't the first time it's happened, is it something to do with that bloglovin thing?

    1. It probably is Maggie, though at the moment this is the most recent post. Just about to post a new one now.
