Swaps = Happiness

We had to go and pick up a parcel from the post office yesterday and lo! it turned out to be my swap from Laura! Great excitement!

When we got home, Iris clambered up onto the sofa beside me and helped me wrench it open. After that, I stood no chance as each pinkly wrapped parcel succumbed to Iris's marauding paws. And actually that was fine, she really really enjoyed it and kept wishing me a happy birthday (relax, you haven't missed it, it's not until November), and before long we were surrounded by clouds of pink tissue and I had a lovely pile of treasure in my lap.

And what treasure! Laura clearly pays attention - it was all so tailored exactly to my tastes. Come see what she sent...

A tiny brass swallow.




Who's this?


A plump little robin, that's who.



A darling little glass chest topped with a bird and filled with pearl-ish beads.




Books! One on gardening, a beautiful copy of Through The Looking Glass, which is one of my absolute favourite books of all time, ever. And a board book called Out-Of-Doors, the illustrations are so wonderful.





Wouldn't this sandcastle illustration make a perfect summer party invite?





A very sweet hand-written note (it's been so nice getting and writing little notes as well) along with some cards and a bag that Laura had cleverly made - have a proper look at those over here..



Thank you sweet invisible friend - this has been so much fun and very life-affirming too.
