the last of Autumn

I was woken early this morning by my door buzzer, loud and continuous like a swarm of angry wasps. I scrambled out of bed and grabbed my oversized cardigan to appear slightly decent as I ran down three flights of stairs to catch the postman before he left me a collection card instead of a package. He's fast that guy, only too keen to walk away rather than wait a couple of minutes.

Well it was worth being up with the lark to receive my perfect surprise parcel. It was my Autumn swap package from Liz at Hey we made it.
Sofia runs this swap every Fall. And I love taking part. I wonder if my partner has received hers yet?

Inside were brown paper writing pads, beautiful soft Alpaca wool, traditional string, yummy spiced tea and the highlight, a bar of Mast brothers chocolate. I have been wanting to get my hands on some since I saw it on design sponge ages ago, to receive such a thoughtful gift really has made my week. Thank you so much Liz.

What a wonderful package to receive! I've always wanted to do a swap such as this; I guess I have to see if I can join in the next one that Sofia runs :)
