my beautiful new hankie -

Guess what came in the mail today? - my parcel from the Swap-Choo hankie swap from the lovely Iris, the Crafting Mama Librarian whose blog you can read here. And you should, it's a good one! That is perhaps the best part of taking part in a swap, you get to discover wonderful new blogs, and make new blogland friends, I know I have and I'll be reading her blog daily!
But, back to the task in hand, my lovely parcel -


It came in these super cute envelope, with lots of goodies.




The poem it came with, for April is National Poetry Month, is a wonderful Billy Collins poem called Litany, written in Iris' fair hand, I love hand written letters and snail mail so much, I wish more of us made time for it, it really cheers my day to get something so lovely in the mail, in between the loathsome bills and junk mail!


Also, tucked inside was a pretty postcard with a lovely note, and a limited edition ATC, I love these little art cards, i think i'll have to try making some of my own - looks like fun! Maybe I'll have take part in an ATC swap next! Mmmmm...



So, that was my second lovely surprise found in my mail box rcently, I'll have to keep peeking in there, maybe I'll get lucky again another day! :D

Happy Good Friday!
