Alice in Wonderland Swap ~ Received

Look what came! A humongous box all the way from Canada, posted well over a month ago by the fabulously talented Jackie :P

You can click here to see what I sent Jackie :)

I don't know who was more relieved when this was snatched off my poor postie who I'd been stalking daily behind my twitching curtains - like a coiled tiger ready to pounce on first knock... Me or Jackie, certainly my postie for sure. Think this one went on a tour of the UK!

So worth the wait though. SO worth it...A gorgeous crochet cat hat. I never, ever wear hats, not because I don't like them, I do. I just don't think I suit them. However this one, no matter how much the kids beg and plead (and they have) is mine  all MINE!A gorgeous crochet Alice and White Rabbit. How amazing?An altered Cheshire Cat notebook - am going to use it for crafty ideas.
Lots of other thoughtful little goodies, I can't believe how Jackie seems to have got me so quickly. The book is about spooky goings on where she lives. I love books like this, I have loads about Haunted Britain and Kent. I could talk for hours about black cat/panther sightings in my area... love all that. The bag is full of brads and stickers and a magnet of Dawson Creek where Jackie lives, I just love that it is a real place!

There was also a giant white chocolate rabbit. I had a tiny nibble on his ear and then Craig and the girls mercilessly ate the rest of him to protect my diet.

Thank you so much Jackie, I really loved everything about my parcel, the thought that went into it, the work, I love everything and am so glad Maggi paired us together for this swap, it was so much fun!
