I have been rather remiss in my posts about participating in the Secret Santa Christmas Swap run by Chookyblue.
This is the fifth time I’ve joined in and it has got to the stage that Christmas just wouldn’t be the same without a parcel arriving from somewhere over the sea.
I still can’t disclose where my parcel went to as it hasn’t been shared on the recipient’s blog, but I believe it has arrived safe and sound. Here is a couple of little peeks.
It was fun wrapping everything up to send on its way.
Then the big wait begins. As usual, I seem to get so caught up in making the gift to send off that I forget that I too will receive a parcel from somewhere……..but where?
Well, this year it came from here.
Yes, all the way from America……don’t get me started on singing the Joan Armatrading Song.
My swap partner was Katie, who’s blog is new to me. She has presented her parcel so beautifully.
As usual, I could open the small package now, to reveal the most beautiful Christmas bird ornament.
I have always taken photos of the ornaments hanging from my pantry door. I took this one out while we were packing, so that it wouldn’t miss out. The last ornament to be hung from there.
Now I have to wait patiently (I’m not very patient) for Christmas to open the rest of the parcel. I can’t wait.
Thanks to Katie for making such a delightful ornament. I’m going to enjoy exploring her blog now.
