My good blogging friend, Erica - of Golden Egg Vintage fame hosted a Christmas Swap in July - I know how you agonize with these things but anyone that takes part in them so appreciates what you do! I was paired up with Chris from California - her blog is A Little Creation. Chris went on a summer trip to Belgium so we delayed sending our packages for a bit - mine arrived last week, thank you so much, it was really nice that you took the time to find some neat little things for me in Europe! That includes Belgian chocolate which is not included in these pictures, I wonder why?? It was so good!! Some items are Christmas, some are not - but all so cute!
This little plate looks like Christmas because of the sleigh, I've never seen a stork at the controls of a sleigh before, this came from Belgium.
This sweet little angel also came from Belgium - she's just a tiny little thing - so cute!
My little bobble head deer came all the way from across the sea too - he started out in Japan, went to Belgium, then the US , now he's in Canada!
Chris made this - out of a Japanese law book - I've never seen anything like it!
Chris was busy, she made this guy called Cornelius - he's heading to the game room. Thanks for taking the time to make these things for me.
It's hard to get pictures of everything so I did a couple of group pics
A lot of the smaller items were in that box with the snowman on the cover - there's ornaments, crafty items including washi and look at those cute little red and white ice cream dishes..
More ornaments and a box of dominos from the USSR, they're old - another item heading to the game room.
And still more goodies - this pack of cards is also from across the ocean, they're really cute and I love the Valentines, some of them even have the year on them.
Thanks, Chris - you were very generous - and thanks, Erica for hosting this swap.
