Back in April Sian announced a Great Big Swap of Very Small Things, a wonderful idea where we pass on a little something to a fellow crafter.
Today I received my beautifully wrapped packages from the very talented Clair.
It took me ages to open the little parcels....I didn't want to undo the pretty lace flowered tie.
In the end I slid it off so I could keep it in one piece.
Inside I found all this lovely gorgeousness.
Clair made the tags and banner...I can't wait to use them.
These little charms are perfect too. The cassette reminds me of my youth when I used to sit and listen to the Top 40 on a Sunday night and try to record the songs I liked. Wasn't it annoying when the DJ started to talk before the song had ended?
For a long while now I have admired Clair's jewellery making skills and was amazed to find this exquisite pair of earrings in the package. When I admired these on her blog I never imagined they would be so delicate and dainty. I've had them swinging from my ears since I opened the package - only taking them out briefly to photograph them. I am touched at Clair's kindness and thank her for her generosity.
Sian this was another of your brilliant ideas and because of this we were all able to pass on and receive a little of what makes us happy...thank you!
The arrival of this parcel certainly made me happy today - the arrival of two parcels was overwhelming.
My second parcel came across the ocean from Life in the Slow Lane.
Alison kindly sent me some happy mail.
Alison, thank you so much for thinking of me, for your beautiful card and kind words and for all the lovely goodies that I am going to enjoy using.
Today has certainly been a bright one.
