A thimble exchange with Costa Rica

I am not a collector of thimbles. A couple of months ago I took part in a thimble exchange though.
It was via Kim's blog of Wisdom with needle and thread  and I exchanged with Christy from Peru!
You can read all about it here.
Then a lady from Costa Rica reached me to do an exchange with her too.
Here's what she sent me. A lovely thimble from her country, two fridge magnets, chocolate and a piece to stitch.
Here's what I had sent her. A thimble from Parga.Isn't it gorgeous?



A thimble from Thessaloniki.
(Sorry for the blurred photo!)
And a fridge magnet from my city.
My parcel took ages to reach her! Some postal services are really bad! Anyway I am glad my parcel arrived safely afterall and she liked everything I sent her!
Thank you Arlette for this lovely exchange.

Πολύ ωραία η ανταλλαγή δώρων και μάλιστα δαχτυλήθρας, μ αρέσει πολύ γιατί εγώ κάνω συλλογή. Να χαρείς τα δώρα που έλαβες κι ας άργησαν !!!! Φιλιά !!!!

These thimbles you sent look so very interesting. Good that the package finally arrived. It would have been sad if these lovely things would have gone lost.
