The Sister Box

My wonderful sister has just posted me the first of many (I hope/she hopes) back and forth parcels. I read about the sister box first about 4-5 months ago on somebodies blog - and I thought hmmmm, that would be great for Rebekah and me! So I sent her the link (can't find it now) and we both agreed it would be a fantastic thing to do!

Rebekah is my most wonderfully creative baby sister who lives in the South Island and I live in the North Island (New Zealand). I am always seeing things she'd like and she is always seeing things I'd like and so it seems the perfect excuse to spoil each other! We have both been collecting things for each other since my visit to Christchurch in April, was it really that long ago? Seems like just yesterday!

Today, she finally put it all into action by sending me the first parcel, and now it's up to me to carry on the challenge! Keep an eye out on your post box over the coming couple of weeks Rebekah! ;)

Look at what she posted me!


My favourite things are the fabric (I love love love orange and pink together) and the neat tea cup, although I really just love it all - Thanks so much Rebekah! :)

That's such a great idea. I'll have to tell my sister about it - she lives over 2600km from me and this would suit us so well.
