A wonderful swap :)

Well, a few weeks ago, I signed up to take part in a swap over at Molly Cupcakes, (my first ever swap!!)and my swap partner was Natalie at the wonderful Summer by the Sea blog. The theme was hearts, and a few days ago, I received my eagerly anticipated parcel from Natalie.

Look at all the beautiful goodies I received! Everything was wrapped in pretty pink tissue paper and ribbon, which didn't last long in my eagerness to see what was inside!

Natalie had sent me a beautiful handmade hanging heart, in shades of pink and green - two of my favourite colours!! This now has pride of place on our bathroom door handle, as the bathroom is in these two colours!

Also included was a gorgeously fragranced heart shaped bath bomb, a cute little pink heart shaped guest soap (that is already being put to good use!!), and the softest hand flannel, ever!!

As if that wasn't enough, Natalie had also sent me a darling metal heart shaped candle holder, a packet of pretty little heart shaped buttons and embellishments, and, perhaps best of all, a hand-crocheted flower on the gift tag, which is absolutely beautiful (the Moomin loves it and calls it her badge!!).

Thank you so much Natalie for all my beautiful things!! I had just come home from a supremely awful day at work when I discovered this parcel on the mat, and it really made me smile. :) I hope you love the gifts I've sent you!

If anyone is considering getting involved in a swap, do it. It's loads of fun and you meet some really wonderful people. :)
