On Friday I received my Heart Swap Parcel from Alex at Pink Feather paradise.

I received these lovely items:

A Hand Made heart with beads (absolutely gorgeous).

A big red stuffed heart decoration.

A lovely quartz key ring (hand Made) in a little pouch (again, this is beautiful).

A mug decorated with hearts & 2 pairs of heart socks.

Silver heart braid.

2 Phone charms

Hair clips and bobbles

Cup cake paper chain papers (lovely!)

and.... A Thorntons chocolate shaped lolly!!

I couldn't believe there was so much in the parcel. Alex had obviously gone to a lot of trouble.

Thank you Alex for such wonderful gifts!!
