Welcome to Boxwood Cottage!

So glad that you found me! My blog is about everything I love like gardening, decorating my home & garden and crafting. Although I'm from Germany I write my blog in English so that hopefully every visitor can read it. Hope you'll stay a while and will leave me a comment so that I know that you were here! xoxo Carola

I've got a lot of mail

I've decorated the gifts (the peg snowmen and the wreath of pine cones) from my swap partner Samantha on my fake mantel piece:

And I've got lovely christmas cards from Amy, Naomi and Robyn last week and this week from Maggie Ann, Kali, Barbara, Dixie and Juli and from my friends Anja and Gerlinde too! And a gorgeous letter and a garden mag from dear Wendy. Some are from the christmas card with hankie swap, some from the postcard swap and some from no swap at all. What a lucky mail week :D

Thank you all so much! xox

I've displayed all my cards and took a photo:

And last but not least yesterday I've got another surprise, this time from the lovely organiser of all swaps our dear Ms. Robyn, an Australian country magazine and a lovely tag and adorable collage. Awww thank you Robyn that is so sweet I love it! :D

Hopefully I forgot noone, I so love coming home and looking in the mail box these days!
