Valentine’s Day is celebrated in Australia, but not to the same extent as in the States (at least that’s my experience), so when Linda from Natural Suburbia was organising a Valentine’s swap I thought it would be fun to share some love 🙂
As soon as I signed up I had ideas racing around my mind, I was thinking about inking a tea cup, possibly with some Jane Austen quotes…
…and it turned out that my swapping partner, Kathleen from Through Our Garden Gate, loves Jane Austen! Perfect huh! So I got inking ~
I also packaged up a Valentine’s gnome and door set too 🙂 Then I sent my little parcel of heart and hand made love off to Kathleen. You can read more about them at Kathleen’s blog 😉
Funnily, Kathleen and I received our parcels on the same day! Master D was super excited as we opened our box to discover yummy candy, a cute pot and a Valentine’s wreath, together with a lovely card and love quotes!
The pot is so sweet, it says ‘1 part dirt, 1 part water, 1 part sun, 1 part love‘
And doesn’t the wreath look lovely on our door! Thank you so much Kathleen 🙂 And to Linda for organising the swap!
