Japan/Portugal Swap Fin-wa.

Swap Details:
Swapper1: Anjali Japan, Asia
Swapper2: Tania Portugal, Europe

Portuguese gossip spreads in Japan.
More Gimme Your Stuff love, this time from Tania in Portugal, who makes all manner of crafty and cute things.

She sent me some fabrics, trims, a Marie Claire and a Marie Claire Idées, delicious and interesting edibles and two green t-shirts. I'm most excited about the brown and turquoise fabric, the world of French crafting and all of the food items, which include a floral tea (makes a yummy sun tea), pumpkin and walnut jam (delectably orange), fennel candy (refreshing) and fancy dark chocolate. I've put the azuki-bean jam and cold barley tea away for a couple days and am enjoying my European food holiday while it lasts.

Portugal is the latest to turn Japanese.
This wonderful package came from Anjali (the swap queen herself ). I sent her a few Portuguese things, and in return this is what I got: Japanese candies (Anjali has a 'Japanese Candy Friday' post every week - go check it out, it's so yummy!), a Japanese crafts magazine and a fashion magazine as well, an assortment of cute fabrics, and this fab old kimono which A. has already claimed for himself.
