I'm Spoiled!

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!

What a great swap package!!! Can't wait to see what you do with the parrot colorway!

I'm glad it arrived and that you like everything. I'm so sorry about the saucer though! I thought it was packed securely, but I was wrong. :-( At least the mug came through in good condition. Enjoy!

Nice swag! I love that monkey bag. I kept reading the name as "piddlepoop" tho. That's the potty training taking over my brain.
