I have just this morning recieved 2 parcels from the postman.
One big one that I sent to myself last monday from London with some of my purchases from the Knitting and Stitching Show - including embroidery scissors that you can't bring carrying just hand luggage on the plane. Travel time: 4 days
The other parcel is smaller, very crinckled and looks as if it has been on a trip around the world.
Its from Helen. Its from England. It smells of almond. Travel time: 3 months.
ITS THE PURSE!!!!!!!
Usually I'm not lost for words. But this is just so weird!
Of course I have opened it and it is just as gorgious as I knew it would be. Purse is crinckled, card is crinckled - I don't care a bit - and the smell of almond? A wonderful surprise:-)))
I can not take pictures and show you now - the weather is very grey and overcast here, so no light - but I will update with photos as soon as possible.
I need some strong coffee now.
Here are photos of my lovely purse made by Helen:
|I love this purse - the fabric is perfect!!|
|The whole content of the packet - purse, card, fabric and a HUGE bath soap that smells of almond!|
|The lining fabric - geometric - just me - love!!!|
|The bath soap packed in a cute suitcase - very british!|
|..and Helen sent me the fabric too!|
I have been fondling and touching that purse more than I will admit in public. And after 3 months close to the soap bar it smells wonderfull of almond!
Thanks again Helen!
And now - I can finally say that my swap is finished - successfully!!!!
I'm a happy, happy girl:-))
