A little Stash tea swap, anyone?

Where I live - in Sweden - Stash tea is nowhere to be found (if I'm wrong, please tell me where to find it!). And today I had my last teabag of Stash's "Sushi bar mild green tea". This tea is the only thing that helps when my tummy is "problematic" and I sooo want some more tea bags.

My number one wish is for some teabags with Sushi bar mild green tea.
Except for that, I'm very fond of all the chai teas.
And I'm always eager to try some new teas, like:

Ginger peach green
Goji berry green tea
India kashmiri chai or India darjeeling green
Mangosteen green with matcha
Maybe one of the organic green ones
Pomegranate raspberry green

The Christmas teas, or holiday ones

Herbal teas are okay as long as there's no hibiscus in them. However, hibiscus seems to be a rather common thing to put in herbal teas :/

I like surprises too. But NO DECAF-teas (exception for natural decaf ones).

(I'm not asking for whole packages of tea, just some tea bags.)

What do you want in return? I can send you tea, too. Or if you want something else, like crafting material, postcards, something sweet ... or something else. Just tell me :-)

Winter & secrets

winter - inspiration

Winter inspiration.

I'm thinking of winter already. Of warm hats and socks and mittens, of snow and of Christmas. And I AM crafting, but some things have to be kept secret for a while ;-). Not all though. I can just blame my lazyness for not photographing + posting it here. And the fact that I still don't feel weel :-(

I'm participating in Hemlig vän 2, which is a Swedish/Nordic version of Secret Pal. This is the first month of three. Of course I cannot show you what I'm sending (or else it wouldn't be called Secret Pal), but I'll be very happy to show you what I recieve. Today I got this:

hemlig vän/secret pal

Isn't it just perfect?! The yarn is wonderful, I love chocolate (and the minty one is one of my absolute favourites), the patterns (baby clothes) are very useful since that's exactly what kind of things I'm into now and the little teddy bear is so cute. THANK YOU!

Extra bra var det att paketet kom just i dag. Jag plockade upp det ur brevlådan när jag kom hem från vårdcentralen. Jag hade varit och tagit blodprover och då jag är rätt svårstucken och senast så rätt misshandlad ut efteråt var jag minst sagt nervös när jag skulle dit. Men med hjälpa av Emla, ett bedövningsplåster, och en massa värme och en bra sköterska så gick det kanonbra. Jag kände mig väldigt duktig som vågat mig dit på egen hand och dessutom inte svimmat. Jag tänkte att jag förtjänade nog ett klistermärke, men kände mig lite för vuxen för be om det ;-) Så när jag kom hem och fick paket blev jag så otroligt glad. Tusen tusen tack!!
