Bills - zero, parcels - one, contents - perfection!

Today was a GOOD mail day - the much awaited back tack parcel arrived from Melissa!

And here she is, a shy little thing (I stalked Melissa's blog, looked at the Portland back tack party pictures in detail but she never showed even the merest hint of herself). She's soft white babycord, with a stylish reversible dress and matching messenger bag. And she brought a couple of aprons too - a workwear one and a lacy Sunday number.

The parcel was themed 'the best of Portland' and had some other goodies that you might recognise. Robot stencils from Laurie at Liquid Paper, a flower pin from Posie Gets Cozy, a postcard from Amy at Angry Chicken. And also freezer paper - yippee and chocolate bars.

How lucky am I? Thank you so much Melissa for a wonderful first swap experience. What an enchanting assortment of loveliness - even your shredded paper was pretty! We're settling new bunny into her home and Johnny is making sure she doesn't go short of hugs. Sending a few of them your way too.
