I received a lovely squishy parcel at the post office yesterday.
All the way from Germany. I've never received mail from Germany before. It was my Secret Santa Christmas Swap parcel from the lovely Stephanie.
This was what was inside. Those little treats won't last long.
As is the tradition, the smaller parcel was opened straight away to reveal a gorgeous card and sweet decoration. It doesn't show up very well here. (Maybe one of those treats is already missing.)
When the ornament is hanging on the tree it shows itself as a beautiful Christmas flower, all hand pieced with lovely beading on the edges and as stamens. The little bells finish it off nicely. So much work has gone into this ornament.
My twig tree has now found a suitable home in our new house and showcases our hand made and other special ornaments. The larger parcel and card are now under the tree awaiting Christmas Day.
Thanks Stephanie and thanks Chookyblue for once again going to the trouble of organising us all for this enjoyable swap. Christmas wouldn't be the same without it.
