My Summer Gift Swap

During August the lovely Kat from KatSighs hosted a gift swap to bring some summer cheer to our lives. My swap partner was Joy who blogs at Welcome to Daisy Row  . If you would like to see what I sent Joy then please click above to have a look!

I got some truly wonderful gifts from Joy. Here is what arrived for me a week ago:

Lots of goodies!
I received this lovely cupcake card (always makes me smile when people play on my blog name, I really do love cupcakes!) thank you Joy! 

When I was opening my parcel I commented to Husband about the fab, green polka dotted parcel tape that Joy had used. I thought it was really different and I had never seen it before so imagine my surprise when I saw Joy had packed me some for myself! Red polka dots and cupcakes!

Joy had also made me this great scarf (apologies Joy if I have that wrong but I'm sure I haven't!) I really love the colour, so bright and unique! As I'm not quite chilly enough just yet but didn't want to hide it away I have actually hung it up at my kitchen doorway! So many people have commented on it and I've proudly said where it came from.

I do like a nice warm scarf!
 We also had to add a magnet in with our summer swap. I found a brightly coloured cupcake one for Joy (everyone needs a cupcake in their lives) and here is the one I received:

just too true!
She then did one better by adding this rather great digestive biscuit magnet which I love. Little Man will be most annoyed when I finds out it isn't real. To add to my wonderful gifts Joy had also made  me some lovely coasters. As I have a black table you can imagine how well these stand out!
Thank-you Joy for your wonderful, thoughtful gifts (and I love the gingham tissue paper. I've kept it because I've never seen tissue paper like this before!) and thank-you to Kat who hosted this summer swap. Yet again I've enjoyed another successful swap. If you like swapping gifts please have a look at my Mug Swap gift exchange for October. Ideal for gift swapping for those who don't fancy making something straight away!



  1. So pleased you liked my gifts, you are right about the scarf, although you could use it as a belt, I suppose? I forgot to mention that the lovely tape is from they make a fab range of cards and various other stationery stuff. I cant tell you where the gingham tissue came from, as it was recycled from an earlier gift from a friend! I'm not sure if the digestive biscuit is actually a magnet, but if you turn it over you should find a mirror! Thanks for being my swap partner, love Joy x x

  2. i love the cupcake tape!
