Valentine Swap and lovely smells!!!!

Well I thought I'd show you what I received in the valentine's swap from Sesga at Sesgaloves1950s
She was very kind and sent me some lovely things. I was so chuffed to receive a little package for me, not knowing what would be inside. When I opened the jiffy bag, these lovely smells came out from the little heart soaps she had put in...divine. They now live in a basket in my bathroom window.


Inside there were the soaps, some buttons contained in a little cardboard heart with a sweet little wooden heart on ribbon tying it together. A lovely handmade 'home sweet home' wallhanging, which is so sweet, I've hung it in my bedroom, also a little handmade peg doll, which Holly loved by the way, a hanging heart made of shell, some Cadburys chocolate, a swatch of pretty pink fabric and a delightful handmade card. She had gone to so much trouble, I was left hoping she would be pleased with what I had sent her.



A huge thank you to Sesga and also to Mrs Thrifty for arranging the swap.
The chocolate is in the fridge, the only trouble being every time I go there I have to have a little chunk, willpower was never my strong point.

I hope you enjoyed the peek inside my valentine's swap, it's great to be back blogging again after a couple of weeks away. Lots of catching up to do, you girls are very productive on the old blog front I have to say, it's amazing how much you can miss in such a short time.

I hope you all have a great weekend and a super Valentine's Day, here's hoping all our other halves come up to the mark, we wait to see!!!!

Take care.

Glad to see you back online!! What a wonderful parcel of swap goodies!! :) I'm a bit of a soap lover myself, so I would have been in heaven with that little lot!!

Thank you so much for your very kind words about the bag. I can't wait to give it to her now. When Mr Deravelled came in from work he looked at it and said it was very pretty. lol he never uses that word generally, so it must look alright!! :)
