a swap, a "ta daa" and a work in progress .....

..... I took part in the Summer Swap that Becki organised and on Wednesday my parcel from Buttonz  arrived:

you'll see that Otis is in the background, he likes a bloggy swap almost as much as me :-)

inside were lots of brown paper packages ..... which contained:

a window transfer ..... it's a camper van with "are we there yet" underneath .....

a beautiful heart (now hanging on the mirror in my downstairs toilet!) .....

a sundae glass and scoop .....

a packet of butterflies .....

some cupcake ribbon (the prefect reason to dig out the cupcake rubber stamps I haven't used yet!) .....

and a lovely "gone to the beach" sign which is now hanging in my craft room .....

how lucky am I?  thank you Jodi for a lovely, lovely swap :-)

On Tuesday I got a call from the framers to tell me that my cross stitch was (finally) ready, it's now hanging in my hall .... so here is the "ta daa":

 
And, finally, this week after what seems like months of waiting my living room and dining room floor were finally finished .... here is a quick shot of the living room just after it was finished:

now, just need to get everything back in place! :-)
