Secret Penpal Scavenger Hunt 2014 reveal day!

Hello everyone! 2014 seems like to be just started but one month is already gone by, and today marks a very special day, the reveal for the Secret Penpal Scavenger Hunt!
I've been really lucky this year too, to be paired with an amazing person who put lot of care and attention into my package. My partner was Giova (who blogs over at "One Bunting Away" - check it out, it's rather great!) and this are the amazing finds of her scavenger:
1. Mail Art Kit - a wonderful assortment of paper, packed very nicely as well, that will probably satisfy my paper needs for the next month!

2. Something Made of Fabric: an handmade smail-mail brooch that I'm very proudly sporting on my coat now.
3. Something That Represents Her: a paper bunting, in the theme of maps and postage stamps! (I don't want to sound over-zealous but I've hung it to the shelf above my desk and I love it!)
4. Something Old Fashioned: a lovely crocheted heart doily.
5. Something Quirky: a decorated paper doily she makes for her shop. It's absolutely adorable, and I really like the message on it as well.
6. Lastly, Something New: Giova bought me a very cute bag, filled with adorable bits and bobs! She even sew my initials and address on the bag, which I thought was a really nice touch.
(how sweet is the crocodile/ruler?!!)
Of course everything was accompanied by a sweet letter, and a lucky 4 leaf clover.

I was so incredibly happy while going through such an amazing package, and I'm really thankful for all the effort put in it; so thanks again so much, Giova!

I hope you all had a fun time as well, and I'm really looking forward to see what everyone got!

Have a lovely day,
