Rats and Bats.

Look what arrived by that nice man from the post office, my Pumpkin Patch Swap from the lovely Nic at Halfpenny Home. I love getting swaps because although you know what the theme is, everyone puts a different  interpretation on it and I find it fascinating to see what people send. And of course I love surprises.

The first thing out of the box was this fantastic halloween bunting. The skull and cross bones fabric is great fun. There are felt appliqued pumpkins on the plain black fabric. This is going to be great hung in the front porch for the trick or treaters. 

 A fantastic knitted pumpkin tea cosy. I absolutely love this and so does Mr T but it gets better-

It came complete with a very elegant white tea pot. It was put into use straight away.

 Then there was chocolate eyeballs. jelly fingers and bat hair slides hiding in these little parcels.

All in all I feel a very lucky lady, it really has made my day especially as we now get to the rats part.

I've got a horrid headache that won't go away. Blah.  More tea I think.
