Seaside Swap

A couple of days ago I was the recipient of this wonderful box of goodies. They were sent to me by my swap partner Dolly Dollop. I don't know how she manages to find time to make such wonderful items and look after 4 kids.

This gorgeous boat is now hanging from the handle of my airing cupboard in the bathroom.

I love the spotty material Claire has used for this cushion. It now sits beautifully on my bed.

Don't think I'll be going to the beach to make sandcastles again this year so these may have to decorate some of the pots in my back garden.

This was wonderfully made and in my favourite colour, green, a knife and fork roll and 4 lovely napkins. I'll use these when I go karting with my hubby.

This tin is now holding my bobbins. I love these old fashioned deck chairs but always seem to struggle when putting one up!!

This little wooden boat now sits on top of the chest of draws in my bathroom.

This has to be one of my favourite items, it's so cute. I've hung it on my back door so I can look at it everyday.

I also got a copy of Coast magazine and a postcard with a row of deckchairs on. This is the first swap I have taken part in and I think the items I have received from Claire are great. She has taken so much time and effort to find just the right items. I think I am so lucky and can't thank her enough.

Wow! I did a swap and I had so much material from Moppy on MISI that I had to go and buy a new stash box to keep it in. Our rules are that you have to use all of the materials by the end of August....I have only cut out a dolly bag and make up bag so far!
