Today was the day....

.......that my wonderful swap package arrived from Nadine!!!
She spoilt me so.


The apron was the most lovely combination of 4 fabrics - and all those little birds - what can I say other than I love them:-)

She also sent me a dish towel, some recipe cards, some soap and some VERY delicious chokkies that barely made this photograph!!!
For me the "piece de resistance" was the gorgeous fabric recipe folder she made me, that was full of a treasure trove of her own family, tried and tested recipes................ my absolute favorite kind of recipes. This recipe folder is by far the most unique of all the recipe books in my collection - I will treasure it.

Here are some pictures of it............

This is the folder all folded up and buttoned closed

And this is what it looks like open, holding its treasures:-)
A million Thank You's Nadine - I love it all.
