blog friends are the best

I love my blog friends. A couple of weeks ago Kate put out a request on her blog for a stateside blogger to purchase a toy her little girl mightily wanted that is much more reasonably priced in the US than it is in Britain. She offered to trade goods for goods, so I, being the craven little so-and-so I am, and always with an eye to the main chance (sounds terrible, doesn't it?) leapt at the opportunity. Several months ago Kate had pictured on her blog some darling cups from Green Gate which simply aren't available here (believe me, I looked) so I asked her to get me a couple. Well, just look what arrived in the mail yesterday--not only these wonderful cups but a Green Gate tea towel, which is just adorable on its own, plus some Cath Kidston bath melts, another line of items not available in the US. Kate is also into mixed media and knows I am, too, so there was a spattering of hot pink sequins included in the parcel as well. Thank you soooo much, Kate!!

I've got another fiber piece started but it's not too far along so no photos yet. Hopefully it will look like something later this week.

What a lovely trade you managed between you!

I'm so glad you liked them! I still can't believe they got there in one piece; I was terrified you'd get a maraca. xx

Nice mugs - didn't realise you couldn't get Cath Kidston over there - she's everywhere here, it seems.
