Arrival From Australia

Apologies upfront, this post has lots of pictures.  I recently participated in a FRIENDS Swap sponsored by Khris (from Australia) of Sew Prim Khris.  My swap partner was Leanne (also, from Australia) of Stitch Selection. The postman greeted me today with this .....
Note the customs stamp ... from Australia. My very first package from Australia!
Inside was this...
Adorable, pink packages - so sweetly labeled.
Well, very pretty ... until I tore in!
To find ...
Seven - Count them - Seven Wonderful Gifts - All for ME!
Lots of gorgeous ric rac, a beautiful case for my scissors, a lovely needle case, two hexie coasters (not!, these will definitely decorate my bedroom wall), Cadbury chocolate (Yummy!), two of the cutest, fun mice you have ever seen (see them perched on the needle case!) and the an absolutely lovely shopping bag (see the kitten faces on the front pocket!).   I'm on a picture roll even if the lighting is awful ... rainy and dark in "sunny" Florida.
Enough, you say? Just be happy there are only 7 letters in FRIENDS.
See the pretty card which came with the gifts.
Digital cameras are so FAB .. no film to purchase or days to wait on prints from the store.

OKAY. OKAY.
ONLY ONE MORE, I PROMISE.

ALL HAS MET THE TEST OF HARDWORKING
INSPECTOR CHA CHA CAT
(Actually, she was attempting to snitch the mice, which are now safely tucked away from her thieving paws!)

Thanks ever so much, Leanne. I am so very excited over my gifts. This has been great FUN!

And, thanks Khris for sponsoring the FRIENDS Swap.
