Australia Day Swap



This year I joined in the Australia Day Swap organised by Anthea.  Here is what Anthea said

Let's show our love of our great country & have a good fun Aussie themed swap!

Here's the deal:
FIVE items are chosen & sent to your partner. They each must start with one letter from the word AUSTRALIA & at least one item must bear the Australian flag.

My partner, Lyn, was very generous

I got a parcel for each letter of the word Australia, beautifully wrapped and with stickers
and Inside there was
A - Australian key fob, U - utensil (a melon baller), S - snakes ( Lyn must know something as I LOVE these!!), T - teatowel with a koala and a thimble, R - ruler and red rick rack, A - Australian note pad, L - light (a usb plug in light), I - Indigenous animal coin purse (so cute) and A - Australian bottle cooler!! Thank you so much Lyn, this was a joy to open. This swap even impressed my 27 year old son!! Impressive huh!!! Lol!! I don't know if Lyn has a blog, but I will find out. 
You can go over to Anthea's blog and see what the other swappers sent and received.
I wrapped most of mine before I remembered to take a photo
a little dilly bag in Australian designed fabric, some Australian fabric pieces and fun glasses,
I will get some other photos when Kaylee does her blog post.
Happy Australia Day.
