Flower Swap

I recently took part in the Flower Swap

organised by Lousie of SewScrumptious.

I was given the swap partner of Emma from Em's Shabby Shack.

Here is the wonderful gifts that I have received.

It arrived all packaged up in this lovely bag, with a heart and flower in my favourite colour purple. The middle of the flower is a wonderful pansy button.

and this is what the bag contained................

an amazing selection of gifts,

including these lavender bags, perfect in purple

some handmade soap, which smells divine in the bathroom

some pansies for the garden,
the rain will have to stop first!

a chocolate bunny, someone else in my house spied this one,
and has eaten his ears tonight!

a fat quarter of fabric, and some more of those wonderful buttons.

A very big thank you to Emma, for a great selection of gifts.

Now you may be wondering what I sent to Emma.

Before I packaged everything up I took some photos.

Here is the lavender bag,
I had to confess I didn't make it but it is handmade

I knew Emma liked duck egg blue, so when I saw this mug
covered in flowers I thought it was ideal

here is the fat quarter of material, covered in beautiful blue flowers,
a longer dangly necklace, with a silver flower and mother of pearl flower button
and a pair of teal silver foiled earrings with antique flower beads
the flower seeds I sent was sweet peas,
for an endless amount of flowers if you keep picking them.

Thank you for being a wonderful swap partner Emma.
