I've been loving doing fun swaps lately. People are so generous it blows me away (and is sort of intimidaing when sending things out...). Here are a few treats I've received lately (I still need to gather all my goodies from my Tea Cup partner, so that one is not included). Some of these goodies aren't even swaps, they're just people being amazingly thoughful and sweet. Here goes:
These lovelies are from Jen as a thank you hosting the tea towel swap. So wonderful!! Love all the birds - lavendar pillow, vintage needlepoint and tag and the tea towel could not be sweeter with it's little saying, bright colors and rick rack with polka dot trim at the bottom. Thank you Jen!!
Then came my lovely ATC from the swap Selena and I did just amongst ourselves because we had never done ATC's before and we wanted practice. Is this not the sweetest?? I love the feather and the flower fairy and the lovely fairy stamp. Thank you Selena - great job!!
Next we have an amazing "just because" gift from Rosa. She was my Red and Aqua partner that I sent to. She is so wonderful and sent me these lovelies just because. Can you believe it? Blew me away - since it hasn't been the best time around here this thoughtfulness meant so much! Thank you Rosa!! and thank you for the lovely post about the swap!! She included two lovely bird postcards, a beautiful angel notpad (with beads). I'm trying to keep my daughter from completely taking it over! and Cath Kidston napkins, which are so pretty, I think I'll have to figure out another use for them so I don't use them up!! Too pretty to use as napkins. Thank you for your kindness, Rosa!!
I am in Moki's letter swap. Very fun stuff - I'm still working on mine to send out by Friday. I have received a couple of my "j"s and they are so cute!! The first I got is from Margarita Jaramillo Coletto(who doesn't have a blog as far as I know, but needs one because she is really talented!). How cute is this?? Thank you Margarita!
And as if that weren't all enough I got my next letter swap from Raesha, who had also very kindly offered to send me a Daphne du Maurier book (one that I had not read - The Flight of the Falcon) when she saw that I like ol' Daphne so much. She also included some great bias ribbon and tape, vintage Aunt Martha embroidery transfer, ribbon and the cutest tissue holder. PLUS this adorable "J" in - hello, my fave - pink and brown! Thank you Raesha!
Well, what's a girl to do with all this fabulous goodness sent her way?? I feel so blessed to know all of you amazing ladies!! Thank you so much!! Enjoy your Wednesday!!
