Ho Ho Ho Christmas in July Swap

I belong to a gorgeous lil' group called Pretty Chic, they are a handful of amazing gals that i am so proud to call my friends. We recently did a Chrissy in July Swap (thanks Shirley for hosting for us)and my sweet sweet parcel arrived today. The swap could be anything we wanted but it had to include clues on who it was from (so no peeking at the return sender addresss on the parcel).
My parcel turned out to be from Peta http://peta-prettyinpink.blogspot.com/
My goodies included a pretty pink leaf and bauble wreath, cookie cutter, lolly key ring, crinoline lady doliey, a vintage pot mitt, yummy teabags, 2 silver frames, pink polka dot bows,vintage pomander tied in a gorgeous floral bag and the prettiest lil pink rose sweets bowl with blue edging (how did she know i am currently changing my colours to pink and blue). The clue card was so funny, i knew it was Peta right away as clue #3 said that Ryan Reynolds was HER boyfriend NOT mine (this is a constant joke between us, over him).
All in all i was so spoilt. Heres a couple of piccies i took of my treasures, upon arrival and after i unwrapped them.




And heres the poem i wrote and emailed to Peta after i stopped jumping up and down with excitement.

A Poem to my Secret Santa


I woke up early this morning
Cause the damn cat jumped on my head
Then I heard the front door rattling
So I jumped right out of bed
Twas the parcel guy God bless him
With a package addressed to me
A secret santa prezzie I hoped
To put under my Chrissy in July Tree
I didn’t look at the return address,
I wanted the surprise
I laughed my head off when I read the clues card
Tears ran from my eyes
All wrapped in pink with ribbon and Lace
Special gifts straight from the heart
A true friend I have found in my secret santa
Even though we are miles apart
Thankyou PETA you made my day sweet
With your thoughtfulness and card that was funny
And because I love my prezzies so much
I’ll let you have Ryan Reynolds the HUNNIE

Big Big Hugs to you
Love Shann xxoo


See, i was TICKLED PINK !!!

Hugs Much
Shann xo
