I was sooo excited to open the box to find 12 individual parcels, beautifully wrapped in union jack wrapping paper - fantastic! And look at all the wonderful goodies I received:
A pair of vintage coronation hair slides.
Red, white & blue coloured yarn - I plan to make a pom-pom garland with this.
A length of red, white & blue ribbon AND a length decorated with a guardsman design.
A pocket mirror with a corgi design on the back.
A gadget cozy made from some very British CK fabric.
A box of Thorntons chocolates - I have to say that Mr A & I have already eaten these.
A packet of Royal Flush playing cards - perfect as Superhero & I play cards all the time.
A commemorative mug - I'm going to display this next to my 1977 version!
Two tins, decorated with guardsman and London buses.
And some Union Jack napkins - which we used at our Jubliee picnic on Sunday.
Thank you so, so much Marina, you have been really generous and I absolutely love all the items you've sent me. (Go check out Marina's blog Evelyn-May Vintage, she made the most fabulous cake for her daughter's birthday).
And thank you too Lynda for organising such a fun swap and helping me meet a new blogging friend. (Lynda is already organising another blog-swap - you can find all the details at Hookin' with LaaLaa).
Hope you have been having a great Jubilee weekend?
Have fun. xx
