Florals from across the pond

A while back a fellow blogger had a floral swap that I happened to catch the tail end of the very last day of signing up. It required a floral fat quarter, a flower seed packet, homemade sachet, and a few other items of your choice with a floral motif. Louise who was also the host became my swap partner. Here are the items that she sent all wrapped up in that pretty wrapping paper. Pretty floral postcards, gorgeous floral fat quarter, two Cath Kidston soaps, a floral luggage tag, a floral wrapped book to write in, a gorgeous sachet she had, a beautiful little sewing kit that she makes (she also makes things for children), super garden gloves!, and yes! floral seeds from England! I don't have them pictured here as they are already in the greenhouse!!!

So, here are a few items I sent to her. The lavander sachet I made with lavander from my garden, and the bird house I painted for her.




I also sewed a tote bag with a little help from my crafty neighbor as she has the serger!! You can check out everything I sent to Louise at her blog http://sewscrumptious.blogspot.com/
She makes beautiful items for the little ones, and really the cutest sewing kits!! My crafty neighbor was so impressed, and of course, I was tickled pink!

Absolutely lovely! It makes me feel like I am in an English Garden (as opposed to a cold, Indiana mud-bog.....).
Sounds like it was a fun swap to take part in!

XXOO!!

What a wonderful gift pack you received. Flowers are always so cheerful and uplifting to the soul.
I also love the sachet you made and the birdhouse you painted. Very adorable.
Thanks for stopping by and wishing me luck. I'm home and all went well, now I'm just waiting on the results. Maybe I get lucky - for now!
Have a wonderful evening, Ulrike.
Doris :-)
p.s. I love your new blog header with the birdies on the fountain telling each other to stay on their own side ;-)

Very pretty! It sounds like a wonderful idea. Of course, I can't sew, so my contributions wouldn't be very nice.
