And then I got home to find my wonderful swap partners had mailed me goodies. What a treat that was and I just love my bloggy friends. Amy hosts the most wonderful swaps and these gals really know how to spoil one another. I have been blessed by making new friends and what's so wonderful is these friends I get to take with me no matter where I live. That's the hardest part about moving around because I always leave some awesome friends behind. Anyhoo, just still feeling a little weepy still so moving on..... I was paired with Amy, The Grand Poobah herself. Seriously I was thrilled at a chance to spoil her since she always hosts us. Check out Amy's blog to see what I sent her because of course, I forgot to take pictures. http://bumblebeelanecottage.blogspot.com
and look what Amy sent me.
I really don't take the best pictures with my phone but I really don't when I get all excited! Can you guys see that sweet candle dish with a sheep, a metal crown and star on it. Those are three of my all time favorite things to decorate with.
And just look at that awesome Flower Frog (oh my I do love me some froggies) and that sweet little hanging basket but best of all a car air freshener from Yankee. Now why is that the best you ask, well because I'm now driving Mark's old pickup truck and it smells like a boy! Seriously has some funky smells so this will take care of that issue. Thanks Amy! I started finding homes for my treasures right away. Isn't that sunflower tuck just so sweet in the dough bowl on the kitchen table with my "tomatoes and strawberries"?
And just look at how perfect the froggy and picture look on the pie safe in the living room.
And these little prim eggs just look right at home on the dry sink.
Now Amy sometimes has a few extra people and I've been lucky enough in the last two swaps to get two partners. I was also thrilled to find out that Sandi from www.theprimitiveskate.blogspot.com was also my partner and she also spoiled me way too much.
Just look at these sweet spring pretties.
This nest is just so adorable. I just love it and it's just perfect in this chippy emanel ware bowl.
And look at this cute spring sign that she painted. Just amazing how talented she is and what do you think it's painted on? Seriously so creative!
That's right a record so how crafty is that especially because I'm such a music lover.
See that prim bunny and look at how wonderful the nest looks on the dry sink.
Did you spy the ladybug already in place when I took the pictures of Amy's sunflower?
And here's the overall shot with my gifties from Amy and Sandi which just make me so happy.
Trust me when I say these gals are all so talented and make every swap a great one! Amy is so sweet to host it for us and if you don't follow her and swap with us, what's stopping ya? It's more fun than I ever even dreamed it would be because it's like Christmas and your birthday all rolled into one every time a package arrives. No wait, it's actually better than that because prim friends really get your style and understand that junk is well loved not to be discarded.
