Harvest House Exchange from Simone

Today I received my Harvest House Exchange from Simone. Simone stitched me a trinket box using the autumn house from There's No Place Like Home by The Drawn Thread.. and sent me a sweet Marjolein Bastin kit and a memo pad too. Thank you Simone!
Here you can see the inside of the box... it came filled with lovely Anchor threads and a skein of DMC Color Variations too! I love it all Simone - thank you!!!
