OK, I will open it then.

Conversation with the kids late this afternoon.

Mum, is that parcel for you?

Yes.

Can we open it?

No. (while trying to act nonchalant...) It's nothing, I'm going to open it later.

While the kids settle down to play their new favourite game, Cluedo, I grab the parcel and the camera and sneak up stairs...to rip it open!!!!!

I have never seen such an assortment of wonderful, pretty, useful and beautiful things.

All of them are all those adjectives!!

Thank you to:

Suzanne for the headband

Sarah for the diary/pen holder

Natasha for the tissue holder

Bec for the ipod/phone/tea bag cosy

Danielle for the zippered purse

Sophie for the brooch

Kat for the make-up purse

Monica for the woollen chain

Kylie for the hair tie travel case and the clips

Leah for the knitted wash cloth

I love everything!! You ladies are very clever and generous!!

A big thank you to Cass for organising this great swap.

There were comments like that in my house too - they aren't used to the pressies being just for me!

Hey Jo, thanks for the cards. I do love little birdies and these ones are no exception!
Glad you like your birdie too! I'm sure I could whip one up for your 9 yo if she's really that keen. Just let me know, I'm following along on your blog!

Thank you so much for the great cards, what a terrific idea - I hate purchasing massed produced cards, these ones are just perfect!
