|~I opened my envelope to find a delightful assortment of small, wrapped packages, containing things like tea and seeds from Nausika's garden and a wonderful letter written especially for me~|
|~ dried flowers and porcelain labels (made by her) and a bit of special white wool~|
|~ a small notebook and sticky notes~|
Next, I made exchanges with Vibeke (who is also the brainchild behind these swaps), in Norway. We agreed to an "open" swap - we exchanged whatever we wanted to. I sent things very similar to what I sent to Nausika, but also included some yarn dyed by my friend Renee from Spun Right Round. I know from Vibeke's blog that she too, is a knitter. Here are my goodies from her!
~traditional Norwegian candy and a beautiful bird kitchen towel~
~a wonderful letter with kind words and a package of organic Norwegian herbs that she is fond of~
My next exchange will take place with Joanne in England. Our theme is "color" and I have already begun to put my mind as to what to include in her package. I am learning, as I do this now, that I need to be a bit more mindful of the size and content of what I send. Maple syrup necessitated a box rather than a large envelope. I'm intending on an envelope for this next exchange, so I need to keep that in mind as I hunt for my treasures!
It's so much fun!!
Thank you, thank you my dear Nausika and Vibeke!
