Spring Green Swap update

First of all a big thank you to everyone who took part in the Spring Green swap. I apologise for the timing, it probably would have been better if I'd organised earlier to avoid the post increases and I think I'd leave more time between the partner details and the posting date in the future as I know it was a bit tight for some people, so I'm sorry about that. On the whole it seemed to go well, though (please holler at me if you are still waiting to receive a parcel and I will chase up!)

My parcel arrived on Wednesday and was a lovely thing to come home to after a long and tiring day.

I was lucky to be paired with Jenni from Bows, Bangles and Bakes and this is what she sent to me, very much inkeeping with the colour scheme - a spring green heart which I'm planning to hang on the front door and such a cute bird candle-holder. My living room furniture (well, the sofas anyway) are blue and green so this is going to take pride of place on my coffee table as I love candles recently! Thank you very much Jenni!

I forgot to take a photo of  what I sent her, but if you ask her nicely she might let you know...! 

I'd love it if you could add your links to what you sent and/or received for the swap - I think I've set it up right below but if it's not working or anything, let me know and I'll try to twiddle with the links.


  1. I love these sort of swaps, this is really sweet and adorable.

  2. The candle holder is lovely, so cute! xx

  3. I'm so glad you liked it Char :) and that it goes with your living room as well!
