The posties are back at work today and ours brought me this. I love late Christmas surprises except this was not meant to be one.
I've been expecting a package from the Top Bird over at Wee Birdy because we decided to do a fun girly swap of sweet treats after I did a post on panfortes a while ago. When it didn't arrive weeks after she sent it, we thought the strict Australian Customs had confiscated it because of the edibles but now we know that it was probably stuck in the Christmas postal jam. Phew! I would be really upset if I had missed out on these goodies that Top Bird had so thoughtfully selected.

The simply-too-pretty-to-eat sweeties! My heart skipped a beat and I let out a loud squeal when I saw the sherbet dip on top of the lot in the box! It's been a while since I've had a pack of those. And I Y Love Hearts! And that cute little pink sugar mouse! And...and...and...the assortment of kiddy candies! Then there's the grown-up stuff like the chunk of nougat and the chocolate-coated figs (that's them in the pink, green and red packages tied up with strings).
What's that Tatty Devine jewellery box doing in the corner with all the sweets, you might ask. Well, the cheeky Top Bird snuck in a surprise!
This darling Telephone Ring! Tee hee hee. I guess we're both pretty on par in the cheeky department - I planted a surprise (also a piece of accessory) with the panforte I sent too.
A big big "Thank You", Top Bird! For the box of tweetness. This post was written with the "Ring-ring" ring on my finger and the very delicious chocolate-coated figs in my mouth.
