Day 11: Twelve Days Xmas Swop

Second last day already… I’m going to miss opening presents… :(
What could this one be? My first guess was a votive candle, but I was so wrong!

It’s a¬†shot glass, of the Texas armadillo! It’s another great present from Texas. I haven’t yet been to the US or seen a real Texas armadillo, so this is a nice treat. ūüėÄ Armadillos are such funky creatures with their leathery shells, aren’t they? Another wonder of the world. I’m sometimes amazed at how creatures evolve.

Love that purple to blue gradient!

Above left is my attempt to put a fake tea light candle inside it, but I failed. lol.¬†And I really hope the photo on the right matches the gift! Thank you Samantha, I really like this one. It shall go on display when I get to Zurich. ūüėÄ

Day 2: Twelve Days Xmas Swop

I hope¬†Chloe, all the way in Singapore, likes the presents that I sent to her.¬†I feel guilty about the quantity of stuff I’ve received, but I know I have given so little to my own swap partner… I’m truly sorry about that. I took the term “twelve items” too literally.

It’s day two, so another of Samantha’s packages gets opened up today.¬†I chose this small one:

The silver wrapping paper with snowflakes is lovely too!

It’s a magnet! Scenes from Texas maybe? I don’t know if a photo can be placed in there, I have no idea how to open it if that’s the case. I’ll be leaving it as is. I’ve even put it on my travel magnet board!

Most magnets are from Australia, some from Europe, New Zealand, and other places. The new one from Texas fits right in!
