Happy Mail Exchange

In January, the lovely Fat Mum Slim organised the Happy Mail Exchange.  Being new to blogging, I'd never participated in one of these goodie swaps but I had heard of them so jumped at the chance to join in on the fun.

Today I received my parcel and boy was I spoilt.  Big shout out to the VERY generous My Little Birdie for my fab, fab, FAB presents!

Here's some piccies...

Wowsers, check out how many pressies there are.

After unwrapping all of them, I was privileged to receive a desk calendar full of gorgeous shoes (ahh, you're a girl after my own heart little birdie), 3 different flavours of chocolate covered coffee beans and some coffee cup earrings, a cute Kikki K post-it note pad and matching pen, a wooden letter "S" which went straight on display on our new bookshelf, a beautifully handmade fabric pouch (sorry, words escape me but I know there's a more suitable word for it) and a really and truly fabulous gift for BuBba - a handmade plush elephant that already BuBba absolutely loves.  You should have seen the smile on his face!

BUT, I've left the best for last...

Ooooh, what could this be???

To put this simply, I was blown away!  In fact, I think I even loudly exclaimed, NO WAY!

Back in February, I blogged about these earrings that I was lemming.  My Little Birdie not only went and got them for me but she wrapped them in the most fantastic and creative way I have ever seen.  The earrings were packaged in a box and wrapped in fabric that had been printed with my blog from that day.  I'm afraid that the picture doesn't do it justice but hopefully you get the idea.


Thank you so much Leanne for all your thoughts and effort and thank you so much Chantelle for organising and facilitating the Happy Mail Exchange.

Oh and if you were interested in the gift I bought for my recipient, have a little look see over here.
