Swap Update...

A little while ago, I said that I had joined in with Tracy at 
with the Send a Little Love swap.
My swappee was Kimbereley from
and I received her lovely parcel on Friday.. I kept it safe and un-opened until I had time to enjoy it....without anything else going on around me...and it was sooo worth waiting for!!!   Lots of lovely goodies included in this is how it arrived....not opened.. I started to open it but thought I should picture how well it was all wrapped up!!!

                                            Underneath the protected brown wrapper....
      Such a really useful box!! And such a change for me to have pink!!  In a house of all males,
                                        I  rarely have anything pink!! I shall keep this for myself!! 
                                             And look at the inside!! Such fabulous gifts!!
Yummy chocolate bars,which I did intend to eat to myself, but got found out and had to share!! :( 
                                     They were delicious though, thank you Kimbereley!!
And these really cute heart shaped Tart moulds!!  There are 4 of them...I'm gonna try a goats cheese and red onion tart when I can find a recipe....any one got a good one they can let me know?
And these cute mini pegs, heart shaped paperclips, notebook, pen....
 And this lovely cross stitched heart, that Kimberley made her self...very impressed I have to say!!  I'm still struggling with the one that Tracy sent me in the Christmas Cracker swap here  I'm not very good at cross stitch, but I  will persevere and show you all the results!!
There were also some little cards with hearts on (and other pictures) and some really pretty ribbon which will be put to some special use, and a pretty card written to me from are all the items together.....I think I have mentioned them all, there was such a lot!! 

Thank you Kimberley for being such a fabulous swap partner!!! I hope you receive my parcel soon and that you enjoy the contents as much as I have enjoyed yours!!     I did want to send seeds and Norfolk lavender that I had grown, but you're not allowed to send it to NZ, sorry :(...
