Swaps and Giveaways

I have taken part in the Swap run by 
for Valentines day and for the first time
I decided to say I would post abroad.

So a couple of days ago this parcel covered in stamps
arrived from Lee-ann in South Africa.

Inside I found this lovely heart shaped tin

Full of heart shaped goodies

and a fabulous card.

I love this origami heart garland which now hangs in my workroom.

As for this lolly( which is no longer with us I'm afraid)
to see the name Woolworths on something again
was very nostalgic.

 Thank you Lee-anne.

I ,as usual, forgot to take photos of what I sent her but
I tried to make sure it was all british bits and pieces.

Now it's time for the WINNER of my little giveaway
for Grow your own Blog.

I got my wonderful Husband to draw the name last night
but the photos I took were awfully dark 
so your just going to have to take my word for it I'm afraid.

Anyway the name he picked out is 


Congratulations and I will get that in the post ASAP.

Hope you all have a great weekend and keep safe in this
horrible weather.
