Remember a while ago I received a gorgeous swap parcel from Cartier? Well, I was a bit late in sending her swap parcel but it finally got to her safe and sound so now I can tell you what I sent her.
The theme was Spring and it was really up to us what we sent. I knew she dreamt of being a lady gardener so what better than some gardening goodies to help her dream come true.
A pair of pretty floral gardening gloves and some veggie seeds, I packaged up.
Cartier's favourite colour is white and I thought some of these lovelies would be appreciated. A white painted wooden frame with a "Keep Calm and Carry On" picture. A hanging white metal butterfly and a hanging white wooden heart.
A white iron lantern for her garden. It holds tea light candles and I also sent her a box of citronella candles to keep the beasties away.
Everything you need to grow your own sweet peas in a handy pink bag.
An oilcloth covered notebook. My first attempt at making one was embarrassing. Thankfully I got the hang of it. I used four different patterns of oilcloth to make it. Thought it would be good as a gardening note book. Wipe clean cover and all.
Also a yummy box of Cadbury's Creme Eggs. Yum! Yum! I was very, very tempted to keep the creme eggs for myself, but I was a good girl and resisted.
I also gave her some decorated wooden clothes pegs. But I don't have a pic for them. I'd used oilcoth scraps and wrapping paper scraps.
I do love doing swaps. It's always lovely to receive things in the post but I also do love hunting for little presents, wrapping them up and sending them off.
The lovely tote bag Cartier sent me was used a lot on our hols to York. It got lots of admiring glances and even stares. Thank you again Cartier and I hope you have fun with the goodies I sent you.
