Swaps and New Haircut

I have had so much fun participating in some great swaps lately.  It is so much fun to send out some treats in the mail and to receive some yourself.  Makes the mail a whole lot more fun than usual.

I received this great bamboo yarn from Gwen.  It was part of the Yarn and Chocolate Swap that Alessandra hosted.  How awesome~two of my favorite things~yarn and chocolate.
I received this wonderful package from a vintage swap I did with an online group I'm a part of.  My partner Florence really spoiled me.
Look at all these goodies!!
Love this vintage apron!!

Yummy tea and spearmint sugar.  Can't wait to try them.
Love this soap and shea butter lotion bar.  They are by my kitchen sink.  Citrus and basil scented.
I participated in the My Favorite Things Swap that Connie was hosting. I sent off a vintage bureau scarf, I love all things vintage, some shell buttons, a market bag I crocheted and some great bamboo and silk yarn to my partner Laurie.  She doesn't have a blog.  I hope she doesn't peek on these before she gets her package.  I also sent along a piece of fabric I found at the thrift store.  It has a Paris theme and she loves Paris things.
Here it is all wrapped up and ready to go.
This is my new haircut.  I can't take a good picture but I just love this cut.  It is very short in the back and so easy to take care of.
Not too good but a side view.
It has been fun sharing all my goodies with you.

Happy day!!

I like the new haricut. Also your daughter's room is very nice. I love the chest of drawers in the walls. That is so nice. I wish we had those in Ansley's room. Our girls are growing up so fast. Ansley just turned 17.
