Thank you Jennifer! She sent me this amazing package for the Yarn in a Tea Cup swap by Zoe. Take a gander.A quick trip to the post office yielded this package. I hadn't expected it to be this big! I was soon to find out why. Gotta love opening a package to find Animal staring back at you! First up was the tea cup...
I'm thinking Jennifer read that I am a teacher. LOL The mug is so cute. Can you make out the single flower on the inside rim? Love that detail. Unfortunately, I also found the source of the slight rattle I had noticed when picking up the box.The good news is this was the ONLY casualty of shipping. See?
So starting from the bottom left corner going clockwise we have:
A luscious skein of 100% fingering weight merino wool in the Parrot colorway from Over the Rainbow Yarns. (close up below). Zen tea from Tazo. It is a mix of green tea and herbs. Yum! Speaking of yum, next to it is Hershey's Sticks. Mmmmmm, Caramel filled Milk Chocolate...sooooo good. A delightfully silly princess hand mirror and notions bag. Scroll down for a close up of the sock monkeys mugging for the camera. =-D Jennifer got it from Piddleloop. They have great sets of matching bags, some classic and some whimsical. Worth a peek. Next up? Green Tea soap from Bisous Provence which is triple milled vegetable oil and shea butter. It smells wonderful and a bit like some green tea perfume I once owned! Lastly, a skein of Cascade 220 in a soft natural grey. I see more felting in my future.
Thank you, thank you Jennifer for your generosity and delightfully light hearted approach to this swap. You truly spoiled me and made me laugh!
