~Fall and Pinkeep Swap Packages~

Lori hosted an incredibly fun fall swap and I was lucky enough to participate!  My partner was Allison and she sent the most wonderful package.
Look at all the goodies packed in this box!!
I love these prim flowers that Allison made.  They have a wonderful "country store" scent.  That's what my daughter called it.
My favorite candy treat.  How did she know.
Yummy scented votives and a mug cozy, which I used today!!  Isn't it gorgeous!!
She sent along this great book and the kids love it.  I'm not sure if I could make these wonderful treats but it's worth a try.
These pumpkins are prim and great!!
She made this adorable pillow.
Great magazine and a Gooseberry Patch cookbook with yummy recipes!

Tina hosted a fun pinkeep swap.  This is the adorable pinkeep she sent me.  I love the colors, patterns and the design.  It's so fun.  She tucked in some yummy tea and flower seeds.

This is the pinkeep I sent Tina.  She loves yellow and blue so I decided to make her this little birdie pinkeep.  I tucked in some dishcloths that I had crocheted.

I forgot to take pictures of the package I sent to Allison.  I get so excited wrapping up the packages and don't remember to snap pictures until it's too late.  I hope she posts them on her blog. 

These swaps were so much fun to participate in.  Opening up the mailbox and finding these surprises has been like Christmas.

Swaps are so much fun. I just hosted one for subscribers of the newsletter I write/distribute and it was wonderful to see all of the beautiful creations.
I am happy to have found your blog.
