Now, about my fabulous Friday afternoon of parcels! I promised a few photos, didn't I?
Here's what I got from my darling friend Kelly, the one who used to live right up the street, and then moved up to the interior of BC. She's an adventurous girl, that Kelly! She also knows how much I love Harry Potter, drinking tea (see the tea bags in the back there?) and Dairy Milk chocolate. Mmmmmm. Thanks, Kelly, you're the best! I love your big, long letters, too. Keep them coming, please!
Then there was the beautiful parcel from Cassie. I have loved getting to know Cassie through her blog and the many emails we've written to each other these past few months. She and I have so much in common, from our love of You've Got Mail to our mutual adoration of children's books, Christmas decorations and Kirstie Allsopp. Cassie's parcel was part of a Pay It Forward swap, and also just to say thanks for being a (new) friend. Isn't she lovely? And doesn't she wrap a pretty present?
The parcel was full of all sorts of goodies that suited me perfectly, including some great notecards (watch the post, Em!), flower seeds, a 2010 diary (love those dark red poppies) and some cute, embellished clothes pegs.
Cassie's parcel also contained Cadbury's chocolates. Look how she labelled these buttons for the boys!
