Advent aswap.

Mr Postie left me a card in the door when I was at work on Saturday to say there was a parcel waiting to be collected so I had to contain my excitement until 7 this morning when I went to collect it!!

I was partnered with the lovely Jess from Bibbitybob, in the advent swap, look at all my lovely red packages,


and as today is the 5th I got to open 5 parcels



some rainbow pens, a piece of fabric, a  waterlily candle, some deco pieces and a lovely crystal charm that I've hung from chandelier, thanks Jess.

Here's my parcel I sent to Jess.




I spent the morning making a door wreath, well I say making, I bought a plain green wreath and then I added fir cones and slices of dried orange and some red berries and added a ribbon bow and then I stitched a jingly bell to the bow as we all know christmas isn't christmas without a jingly bell!!



"Hello Mr Robin"

I have a little idea for us all to share but it will have to keep for next time.
