Afternoon tea swapsies

This post is long overdue. I took part in my first swap earlier this year and really loved it. This "Afternoon tea"
 swap was hosted by Jewel's.

I was lucky enough to be paired up with the lovely Rae from FeltByRae

You can probably imagine how I squealed when my swap parcel arrived, filled with these goodies.
I received some Duchy's shortbread, a lavender sachet made by Rae, a bundle of pretty fabrics, beads and crafty goodies, a handmade brooch/necklace by Rae, Cath Kidston napkins and some silicon cupcake molds.

Every came looking so pretty, wrapped in lovely bright papers. I had to contain my excitement while I took this photo. I couldn't wait to see what was inside.

This is what I sent:
A piggy tea cosy, crocheted mini bunting I made, some Dr. Stuarts tea, Fimo cupcake trinket boxes made by me, a darling miniature teapot, cupcake flag made by me and some tea themed gift tags and cards I stamped.

I hope Rae enjoyed receiving her goodies as much as I did mine. Do "visit" Rae if you get the chance, she's extremely talented and very friendly. 

I am also taking part in Lissy Lou's vintage Easter swap. My parcel is nearly ready to go. I show you more about that soon.
