Our Swap from Norma! So Precious!

Our Swap Items Arrived from Norma!

Joanna and I went to see Alice in Wonderland in 3-D yesterday and bought her Easter dress and shoes. We were thrilled when we got home to find our package from Norma Bennet of Make Mine Mini in Australia! It was filled with goodies for Joanna's nursery in her Victoria's Farmhouse we are finally finishing! There was a little growth chart, a beautiful printie, a package of diapers, a baby doll in a box, a rocking horse toy and most specail of all, a sweet little knitted dress on a hanger! We took pix of the pretty little pink packages with heart stickers and then of the goodies inside! Joanna was thrilled as you can tell! And to make it even more a special swap, Norma actually called me last Friday morning to thank me for her package. It was so lovely to hear that beautiful Australian accent and such a special phone call! My family couldn't believe it--especially as Jerry teases me about my 'imaginary friends in our blogging community! LOL! So, a great big thank you to Norma for such special little gifts for Joanna's nursery!

Lovely thing she has made :) I love the little clothes hanger and the dress is so cute. But where the heck is my package??? Hope that the food items inside hasn't stalled in the customs, it should arrive latest on Tuesday, hopefully.

Have a nice Easter :)

I know, Ira! I keep waiting for it! I guess our customs held it up but hopefully it will arrive this week! Surely! We will be excited to get it!

Love your swaps from Norma. xx

Norma said...

Yay! Glad to know that it has arrived safely. Looks like the Moses basket has got a bit squashed, I thought after I mailed it that I should have put a ring of strong card around it but of course it's always easy to be wise after the fact :) I hope gorgeous Joanna will have fun with her nursery.

Thank you for the sweet comments about Joanna and the special little goodies Norma sent us! She knitted that sweet little dress! Joanna is a sweetie, funny and compassionate and wise beyond her years as she has two nearly grown siblings! I've enjoyed spending some special time with her this week.

Ohhh, did you say Vic Farmhouse? I am working on one right now. The Farmhouse Junior from Real Good Toys. Is yours the same as mine? :)

Peach Blossom Hill said...

Hi, Sans! Joanna's is the Victoria's Farmhouse with the front bay and the side hinged entrance (haven't asked DH to get out the drill yet!) It's slow progress at our house! I'm sure you work quite faster!
