Yesterday I received my Easter Swap goodies from Mary at Sew Hot Mitmot. This is what I received:

A beautiful lemon basket

A gorgeous chicken/heart hanger

Some egg decorations

A fabric egg

Some Easter Embellishments

Easter Napkins

A Lovely Hand Made Brooch

A Tissue Holder

oh! and erm.....ahem..... some Chocolate eggs ...... they just seemed to disappear from the photograph!

Thank you to Mary for such wonderful swap items - they were lovely!


Still on my clearing out theme, I decided to get rid of some of my books. I love books and I have 2 book cases in my living room - 1 floor to ceiling, 1 on the landing and the kids have a bookcase each in their bedrooms. All these are absolutely overflowing with two rows of books on each shelf.

I was not going to get rid of any of them to begin with as I am quite attached to them all! But common sense had to take over in the end - no one needs 3 chocolate cookery books, and paperbacks that were read years ago and never to be read again. So I listed a few on Amazon.

I couldn't believe it! I was still in the middle of listing some items and I was getting emails to say that the items were sold. I made just under £100!

So anyone wishing to clear out their books - Amazon is the place - Brillliant!
