According to Jalisa...

...The postman brings good presents.

My valentine swap arrived and oh what a treat it was. The postman actually came when I was in the middle of cooking dinner and I had to send Jalisa out because I was embarrassed at wearing a tea towel for an apron (read on and you will see why I am revealing my secrets).

What a pleasure it was to open Natalie. Shame on me for just shoving your stuff in the satchel when you took the time to wrap the items up so delightfully - all in theme with valentines. Individual items for the kids were wrapped up in red spotted cellophane and ribbons, complete with little tags. My present was wrapped in red tissue paper.

  • Here’s a run down of the goodies Natalie sent me:
    Heart appliquéd face washer for Scott
  • Grosgrain? Ribbon covered hair clips for Jalisa - she loves them!
  • Ferreo Roche and Lindt chocs (which I will share with DH)
  • Some care bear fabric, vehicles fabric, red buttons, 2 heart buttons and some butterflies (which Jalisa tried to eat to see if they were lollies - what are these Natalie?) and
  • A 3 heart appliquéd apron

Natalie - the apron is literally just what I wanted. I have been meaning to make myself some aprons, I even have the fabric set out, but have not been motivated enough to take the time to do that for myself. So I thank you so much for knowing exactly what I needed.


  1. Wow - great swap parcel. I love the apron.

  2. Aw that looks really nice! Great apron Natalie!

  3. Lucky you! It is all so lovely and valentine-y. Well done natalie!

  4. Marie looks like you were very spoilt

  5. I'm so happy to hear that you like you swap Marie and glad that the apron was needed, now I just need to getting around to making myself one lol.


Thanks - I love receiving comments.
