From your home to mine - Swap

Awhile ago I joined in with the "From your home to mine" swap on Betty's blog.
I was paired with the lovely Elizabeth lives in Cornwall, England.

I love this sort of swap and finding what someone likes and what I can find to suit them from my country.

I sent Elizabeth a shower cap which i sewed with pohutukawa flower fabric (the NZ Christmas tree)' Twinings New Zealand Earl Grey tea (this seems very popular with overseas friends), I swapped the chocolate out for some more NZ lollies as Elizabeth is not fond of chocolate, a kiwi card drawn by my youngest, postcards, my favourite NZ soap - Ecostore and a kiwi keyring.

About 3 weeks back i received an amazing package back. We have been to Cornwall many, many years ago and I loved pouring over the maps and brochures and guide magazine that was sent (still pouring over them - i remember Polperro), some Cornish tea (how neat is that?! The only tea grown in England), some DMC cross stitch cottons (just started cross stitching again tonight for the first time in months), a great box of neat writing cards, the most adorable heart with Cornish lavendar  in it - it smells divine and is now hanging up in our wardrobe, some soap, a tea towel with Cornish scenes. It was quite the package (opened in the school office with lots of admirers!)

I have misplaced the memory stick with the goodies on that Elizabeth sent me - hopefully I will find it during the big sort out in the school hols!

Thank you so much Elizabeth for a great swap and to Betty for hosting it.

Anyone know of any swaps taking sign ups at the moment? I have not done one for a couple of months now.
