Beautiful things in the mail

Today's post will be quite the treat, I can tell you that right from the start! To give you a bit of background, I recently took part in a scavenger hunt project organized by the lovely Fab (a.k.a WreckThisGirl).


The idea of the scavenger hunt was that everyone taking part would receive a partner and a list of 10 scavenger hunt items. Out of that list you select at least 5 to send to your partner. Most of the things on the list weren't a single item, but a collection of things, like a "city explorer's kit" to your home town. You can read all the details HERE

Tea and mail I received my package yesterday and have thoroughly enjoyed opening it. There are so many beautiful things in it, so I'll share the contents with you.

This isn't even everything! There's still tea and candy and loads and loads of wonderful paper things. There's just so many things to look at and she's written letters explaining more about certain items sent. I loved it all! I will go through these again and many things will be put to good use. Thank you so much Andreia!

I sent a package to my assigned partner as well. I hope it has reached it's destination, but I won't show any photos or reveal my partner until they confirm it has been received. So, stay tuned for my contribution for the swap.

Did you take part? Please send me a link to see what you sent and received!
