I am a wee bit excited

Well, quite a lot excited, actually. The lovely Alexandra, whose blog Cottage Dreams I adore, suggested a swap a little while ago, and I jumped at the chance of course. I have just about finished putting my bits and pieces together, ready to be posted, and I couldn't help myself, I so wanted to share a few little snippets of whats going inside the package. I am just too excited about the swap not to show a teeny bit at least. It won't give anything away, I should think, but Alexandra, if you don't want to see anything at all, then stop right here, lol. And what theme did Alexandra come up with? Why, FRENCH of course!

Hmm, I'll just put a pic of something totally irrelevant here first, so that she doesn't see any swap pics by accident. I could share a couple of those postcards I found last weekend, couldn't I? That should do the trick and you may be able to use them for something in your projects.


And a beautiful illustration from one of the books I picked up recently, isn't it ever so romantic?


Right, now on to the little snippets of some of the swap things -






I'll post proper photos when I know that Alexandra has received her swap package.

No boot fairs today, sob sob, so I am just pootling about, doing this, that and the other. Not much of anything really, lol, I seem to be just shifting stuff from one room to another. Might settle down with my crocheting and put a movie on. Or perhaps I ought to be a bit more of a housewife and do some dusting and hoovering and all that nasty stuff........

Hi Liz, Thank you for sharing those lovely images! I bet Alexandra is totally excited and can't wait to receive your package. The snippets look very promising!
I'm sorry that there wasn't a boot fair for you today. Maybe you could look at some older flea market finds and pretend you just bought them ;-).
Have a great Sunday!
HUGS to you,
Julia

Oh wow that looks very exciting. I love the look of the blue with the pretty flowers. I wonder what that is? She's a lucky girl. Hope you didn't settle for housework and waste all that talent you have!!

The bits and pieces look lovely! By the way, the squares in the last post are beautiful- love the colors and the pattern. If you would ever like to swap the pattern for that with the pattern for the crochet trims I did in my post let me know( even though we might have to convert English to American and vice versa- I think I remember how to do that!).

WW said...

Pretty pictures, can't wait to see what you sent.
