Pot of Gold

There really is a pot of gold at the end of every rainbow, well rainbow swap that is! This week I received a gorgeous package in the mail from my Rainbow Swap partner, hosted by Trash Can



The parcel was from Kate at Kate's Quilting (& other Fibre Arts) Blog and it was full of some yummy goodies

The chocolate didn't last more than 5 minutes after the photo shoot, devoured by my son and hubby and a wee bit by me. The candle has a sweet Vanilla scent and the lemon bath bomb is living in a drawer now giving everything a fresh smell. The mini quilt is so bright and cheerful and I think it'll make it to my office to brighten the dull walls up.

Thank-you so much Kate for all the work you've put into this swap, it is greatly appreciated and will be cherished forever! My parcel hasn't reached it's destination yet but it should be almost there. I forgot to take a photo of the goodies I sent so stay posted and as soon as there's a post about it I 'll direct you to my partner's blog.

PS Thank-you to Trashy for inviting me to join this swap and being a good first time swap mumma, everyone's gotta start somewhere!

It came today...it came today...lalala!
Thank you for the lovely goodies!! Everything is so unique tht i can't wait to start using it all - although i may just have to leave it on the coffee table and stare at it all just a little bit longer yet. Also can't wait to pile into the choccy. I was scrutinising the wrapper to try and figure out what it is and as it's bedtime now i just had a tiny little nibble......Mmmmmmmmmmmm.
Thanks again and i'll post about it when i have some time later this week. B x
