From: Loes, The Netherlands - May 2012
Number 60 already.. and this is a special one! This is the first package swap that actually came in a real box! And I can tell you this is by far my favorite package! The package was sent by Loes, a lovely Dutch blogger. She wrote everything in Dutch, so I'll try to translate it for you. On the front of the package she put 2 kisses, because she spelt my name wrong in the letter that was included in the package.. haha! Please read on for a bulk of photos!
This is what I saw when I opened the box.. (ps. er kwam een heeerlijke geur van spekkoek uit de doos haha, geen idee waar dat vandaan kwam? ;-)). On top was the letter where she explained that everything in the box was handmade (or at least for a little).
Ohh it just felt like it was my birthday! Everything was wrapped so lovely!
First I opened the present that was wrapped in dotted fabric. A lovely hand painted flowerpot, in a mint green color. I really like the color! Now I need to decide what kind of flower I'm going to grow in the pot..
This little pocket says 'be careful with me', because..
..this fragile garland of dried flowers was inside the pocket! It is so beautiful!
Another lovely wrapped little package..
which contained a little wallet! Made of a real animal skin. I really like it!
and another package!
which contained lovely fresh tea! In handmade bags with handmade tags. She sent me different tastes, such as liquorice, apple chai tea, ginger & lemongrass.. Can't wait to taste them! (ps. Geen idee of de 'zoethoudt' spelfout bewust of onbewust is gedaan, maar ik vind het wel tof. Alsof het een werkwoord is, 'het houdt je zoet!' hihi).
A big pile of cute little pockets, which will do good as giftbags. I'm definitely going to use these!
I saved the biggest package for last..
and oh.. it contained a hand printed canvas bag! I really like canvas tote bags, I use them a lot. I also really like birds so this bag is perfect for me!
Well Loes, a big THANK YOU! It will take some time to send you something back, and I'm not sure if it is possible to exceed your package but I'll try my best!
