Portugal/Canada Teresa Swap Complete!

Swap Details:
Swapper1: Teresa Canada, North America
Teresa Portugal, Europe

Portugal to Canada
I love Portuguese swappers! They've all put together the nicest packages for me! Teresa sent me a great bundle, including great goodies like yarn (which I can't wait to start knitting with!), some very pretty jewellery (2 pairs of earrings and a ring), some bird fabric, some Christmas loose leaf tea from Germany (very yummy!), a rooster magnet and teatowel, a great little cork coaster with the rooster again and a pretty bird tree ornament. Here he is sitting on my Christmas tree. Thanks so much Teresa!

Canada to Portugal
I am not sure if Teresa was thinking of a winter theme or not, but here I am feeling miserable about winter and she sent me a package which really cheered me up with the things I go through in winter: she sent me labello lipbalms in flavours not available here ( am in love with the grape. Really huge rec, that grape labello is marvelous), adorable tissues with a Penguin which i am saving for the holiday season parties, tea, soaps for the scalding hot baths I love in winter, a brooch to cheer up winter coats, extra strong tictacs and a handmade ( by her?) pouch I could just crawl into since it is so cozy. But the star of the package was definitely the bear she made, here he is, poor bear, trying to escape from Canadian winter to unheated Portugal. I will take good care of him, he was already sunning himself in the window today. I am just not quite sure what his name is, ideas? Thank you Teresa!
