Brown paper packages tied up with string

A few days ago I gave you a link to an online swap that I participated in recently, organised by Lakota of Faith Hope and Charity Shopping.

Today it's my turn to show you the wonderful collection of goodies I received from my swap partner, Mrs Tightwad of The Tightwad Telegraph.

 This is how it arrived:
 Do you see that handwritten message written downwards across the paper?  

It says:
...string...
What a fun way to send and receive a parcel, eh? ( I loved it!)

Inside, Mrs Tightwad (seems strange calling her that, but I won't be revealing any identity information online) has been carefully looking at my blog and from my post of 26th April discovered that I loved peacocks. It's true, I love their amazing colouring.

...which is why I loved the selection of peacock coloured goodies that I received:

Now for the details...

First up to show you we have a large vintage table cloth for an outside table, an eye pack for refreshing tired eyes (I could do with that right now!) and some peacock coasters....
...next there were some really lovely handmade (by Mrs Tightwad herself) knitted socks made out of Merino wool:
 .with lovely flecks of colour mixed in.  I do so wish I could knit!

And lastly, but no means least, there were some dazzling crafty bits:
A pack of beautiful material pieces, a pot of turquoise Cosmic Shimmer and some silver peacock jewellery charms.

Thank you very much to my generous swap partner and also to Lakota for organising it.  I've had fun doing this and would love to do it again sometime.

Thanks for looking and for any comments,

Gorgeous goodies, I love those socks lots and lots! The peacocks are so pretty I have a bit of a thing for them too. I posted a parcel out like that recently too, in brown paper, it's a sweet way to send.
