Swaps coming and going..........

Yesterday a notice came in the mail box letting me know that I had a parcel to collect from the post office in our closest town - Yarrawonga.  So off I headed.............. there is still flood waters across one section of the main road, but they are letting traffic through (after all it is a highway...... they just have traffic lights set up allowing traffic each side to take it in turns driving through that section, since you need to drive in the middle of the road where the water is at it's lowest level).  And I was extremeley happy to find the parcel was my OASS! It was sent from Carol of Blessed Mum and I just love all the wonderful goodies that were inside..........
The Jasmin scented wardrobe hanger is already hanging up in my side of the wardrobe, the little notepad is on my freezer to help with my meal planning............ and what was in the wrapped parcels???

The most georgous little pin cushion, and 2 great wall hangers.  I love the saying by Emily Bronte (as an old speech & drama student & teacher, it has an extra special appeal).  I can see just how much effort and love and thought went into everything that you made and sent my way, so thankyou very much, it is all just wonderful!



And while I was visiting the post office, I was finally able to post off my mini name game swap that Samilias Mum was hosting.  I really struggled with this one as my partner didn't have a blog that I could go and visit to get an idea of what they liked, and had also specified to only have their name and bright colours............ so it was with lots of trepidation that I have finally finished it and posted it out........ hoping and praying that it is well received.

Glad you got your parcel okay,
hope the water goes down soon.
We are having real hot weather,
which is bit out of the ordinary
for Albany in the south west of
WA.The name swap looks great.
