Autumn Swap Goodies

Today I picked up my autumn swap parcel from the post office from AnneMarie over at Candle Light Cottage and all I can say is WOW!!!
 I opened the box to find some lovely autumnal tissue paper

a felt and tweed mini wreath, lots of autumny buttons and a lovely card.
 Under the tissue paper were lots more packages wrapped in the same tissue paper and tied with ribbons.
My first packages were very chocolatey indeed!!
A bag of delicious Hotel Chocolat drinking chocolate to be enjoyed in my pottery mug complete with mug warmer and coaster (AnneMarie I would love to know what wool you used?) and a bar of marshmallow crispy chocolate that I have shared out tonight.
Then there was this seriously cute harvest mouse that I think I will call Matilda
 Every sewer loves buttons and boy are these big buttons!
I now also have some button boxes to keep my big buttons in.
I think AnneMarie must have been listening in on my conversations as only the other day I admired a friends felt ball necklace and now I can make my very own.
 The packages just seem to keep on coming and inside the next parcel was this huge gingerbread skeleton man and lots of spider confetti.
 I love autumn especially the hearty meals so I'm really looking forward to trying some of the recipes in this book. I say me but it will probably be Paul doing the cooking I shall be there for the tasting - obviously!
The smell from this candle was gorgeous and I can't wait to wear my new brooch.
 I haven't started  putting out my autumn decorations yet but AnneMarie has definitely given me the boost to start with this superb rag wreath, I love the colours and the patterns of the fabrics.
 Well as you can see AnneMarie has been a super duper swap partner, here is a photo of all my goodies together.
 And here's a few more close ups

 Thanks AnneMarie for being such a fabulous swap partner. Your parcel will be with you in the next few days I hope you like your autumn swap parcel as much as I have enjoyed mine.

Thanks to Blueberry Heart for organising this swap again I can't wait to see what everyone receives.
