The Secret Garden swap

Sarah, from My So Called Junky Life,
hosted a beautiful swap called
The Secret Garden, inspired by the book.
That's one of my favorite childhood stories,
so I couldn't pass that one up.

Yesterday, a package came all the way from Australia,
from my mega-talented partner, Maria.

When I opened it up, this beautiful box
just took my breath away!
It was filled with luscious goodies.

This stunning altered matchbox was
also filled with fun little pretties.

Look at this beautiful tag!

I was seriously swooning as I discovered
each and every sweet morsal.

She couldn't have chosen more
perfect gifts to send me, if she
had known me personally.

I haven't been able to bring myself
to put anything away yet, I just
want to look at it all a little longer.

Thank you so much Maria!
