Cracker Swap

I took part, once agin, in Tracey's ( Christmas cracker swap.
Such a great idea trying to fit wee things inside a cardboard tube!

This year I was paired with the lovely Patricia from

Her cracker arrived last Friday (perfect being last day of school year!).

Gorgeous wrapping with a golden starry wine bag .( I need a good bottle of Pinot noir in that for me now!)

I adore the fabric wrapped around the tube too - might be part of a planned cushion this summer.
Cinnamon sticks are something I rarely see here - one was used in a cold jug of water last week with mint - gorgeous pair together!

Patricia made the gorgeous toppers ; I have little cute triangles and hearts - perfect for scrapbooking;
a piece of lovely stripe fabric (love stripes!) ; a golden candle which is now on my dining room table with my other tiny Christmas candles ; sticky notes (perfect for uni work) and cute stars which I can see sprinkled all over a scrapbook page too!

Thank you so much Patricia - love it all! I hope my cracker has arrived at her house - I will show you the goodies I sent to her when she has blogged about it.
