Once again the lovely Jo of Through The Keyhole hosted her 12 days of Christmas swap for us all to join in and of course I had to sign up having had great fun with this in 2015. The idea is that you swap 12 gifts with someone to open on each of the 12 days of Christmas.
I was partnered with Mary from Frugally Challenged this year and was sent some really lovely things which I will show you in a moment. I have to confess that she also sent me a lovely little box of Belgian chocolates, some chocolate money and a sugar mouse which were all eaten before Christmas - and not photographed! She also sent me a lovely Belgian lace Christmas Tree shaped decoration which I have also forgotten to photograph and have now put away. They were all really lovely though! Thank you so much Mary!
I did remember to photograph the other things though and these are the lovely things - along with another very kind little extra that Mary sneaked into the parcel. A beautiful handmade quilted Christmas stocking. Mary really did spoil me a great deal and definitely went over and above the "deal" of the 12 items. But I did sneak in some extras for her too!
Thank you so very much Mary for your kindness and the lovely gifts. I will think of you as I use them and see them around my home. It has been great to get to know you through this lovely swap. Thank you to Jo for hosting again, I know that it is more work than it seems and I do appreciate it!
Here are my things!
Hope you have been lucky enough to receive some lovely kindnesses this Christmas too.
