A Finnish Swap!

I have just done a swap with Hanna at Hanna & Leijona and yesterday my goodies from Finland arrived in the mail! It's so exciting getting treasures from all around the world!
Hanna sent me the sweetest things - beautiful hydrangeas, mini candy sticks, a wire basket of breads, little jars for the kitchen, just look at that little metal heart hanging on the lemon curd jar, how cute is that?!
And look at this gorgeous kitty that Hanna felted, he is just so special! Liberty has decided the cat is a boy, but as yet hasn't come up with a sensible name for him (well, a name that I will let her use! lol!)
Hanna also felted this lovely little teddy. She thought that the teddy might be too bright but he is just perfect for the boys bedroom in the dollhouse, it's in the attic and I've used dark blue wallpaper and the bed cover has a black background so that little teddy just brightens up the room! Along with Aava's drawing the teddy was Liberty's favourite thing!
Hanna's sweet little daughter, Aava, sent a beautiful drawing for Liberty. So cute to see all those words written in Finnish! There was also a tiny paper doll for Liberty and a postcard that had a house on it to cut out and make up! How cool!!
Swapping is great fun! Thanks Hanna and Aava!
