Parcels and Presents!!

I don't know what is more exciting, receiving parcels or presents. So luckily for me I have received both! The parcel came all the way from Michigan from my excellent scarf/cowl swap partner and she spoiled me rotten! THREE cowls! THREE! Can you believe it? I love each one of them. The rest of the huge box they came in was filled to the brim with goodies! Owls, candy, owls, yarn, owls, notions, owls. Get the picture :-) The owls was on almost every item in the box. Needless to say, I was in owl heaven!

Here are the cowls. The last one is long but I folded it up for the photo.

Here are the owls...

and yarn.

Thanks for being a great swap partner Tonya!
 I love swaps. But my budget needs tightening, as in corset tight, with the ridiculous hike in electricity prices. So next year I will have to limit myself to the KISS swaps.
 Lucky for me my mum has a neighbour who loves me and is always passing things over the fence for me. She has recently held a craft stall in her back yard and handed over the few things she had not sold to me. Look at these Cute cushions!

She also made a posy of large paper flowers. These are the leftover ones.

I had been looking for something to fill in my unusable fireplace in the lounge room. My mum gave me the large vase for the paper flowers to go in. I love the way it looks.
 I also got a huge box of Christmas decorations, but I have not yet finished decorating.

In the box were these. I have no idea what they are supposed to be.

Any ideas?


  1. Fantastic loot! Maybe the last items go over something, as in the backs of chairs? I can't think of anything else.
