Holiday Swap from Melanie !

Summer was a little sad this morning, because of that bad and sad weather today!

I’m waiting for parcels (especially Mini Maru who is on her way to her new home in France and another one, but this is too soon for speaking about her now, I must keep the secret a little bit longer) and so, I went to the letterbox when misty rain stopped. There, there was a parcel for Summer and a letter from Father Christmas for my daughter Laura !

Laura was very happy to receive a letter from Father Christmas, but I think that Summer was much excited to receive a parcel, for it was her first one ! And do you know what? The parcel was coming from the US ! Yes ! From Wattsburg, Pennsylvannia !

Waouh, incredible ! It crossed the ocean especially for Summer ! It was sent by Melanie, for Summer’s first Christmas Swap !the-parcel

Summer was so excited, that she immediately opened it !

Summer opened her gifts and found a lovely card for me;  some chocolates in a box and others hidden in a lovely little box presented as a book with « Santa’s Stories » written on it; a little snowman presenting a lovely page of a book onto which a gorgeous dress is shown with a sweety  hat !

And you know what? The little dress and the hat were there for true !!

Summer was soooooooooo happy that she just couldn’t wait to try it on !

Look at her !

Summer was spoilt with all her presents ! (As I was as well 😉 ! )

I will just add that the chocolates were yummy !!!

Allez, Mia, enlève le gilet que tu as piqué à Althéa, et montre-nous cette première robe  confectionnée dans le tissu choisi par Mélanie afin que je lui fasse une petite robe printanière !

Pour toi, c’est une robe d’été !

Quelle élégance, Mia, mais on va dehors, s’il te plait… On a besoin de chaleur et de luminosité ! Viens, on va voir les carpes Koï et les shibunkins !
