Serendipitous


A few weeks ago, myself and Lynsey from Swirly Thoughts organised to do a little international swap, taking some of our favourite biccies and choccies and sending them over the wild blue yonder to the other side of the world.

 

We both got a little delayed at the start, but serendipitously ended up sending our packages on the exact same day.

We then thought that it would be really interesting to see whether Australia Post or the Royal Mail would be quicker in getting our parcels to the other side of the world.



Well as a matter of fact, when I woke up Friday morning, I had an email from Lynsey telling me that her parcel from me had arrived...... and when I opened my front door to leave the house Friday morning, my parcel from her was sitting on the doorstep.

What are the odds?????

Thanks so much Lynsey, I am super chuffed with all my gorgeous goodies (did you notice that the chook card totally matches my doorchook)? I had to totally resist opening everything yesterday until I managed to take photos today.... it was very difficult!

Blogtoberfest Day 25: Chooktober

I treated myself to another little pressie last week.

I spotted this sweet little chicken doorstop (made with a lovely vintage floral) over at Swirly Thoughts, and I just couldn't resist. I currently have one of those ugly plastic doorstops for the front door so this is a much better replacement.

Mr Chicken has a little zip at the bottom, so he arrives empty and you just fill him up with rice. I had brown or arborio to choose from, so I thought Mr Chicken would probably prefer brown rice.

When my package arrived, Lynsey had also included some of her gorgeous vintage storybook tags (perfect for the upcoming christmas pressies), little recycled notebooks, and a koala teatowel all the way from the UK!

Thankyou Lynsey for the extra sweet suprises. If you'd like your own doorchook, you can find one right here.
