Still Stormin & My Swap Goodies Arrived

Happy Friday Everyone~

I hope you are all have a good day so far. It's raining again today & hot & muggy. We already have a lot of flooding in the area as some nasty storms came through yesterday. Well~enough about the weather~on to the goodies...

I participated in Char's textile swap over at The Pickled Pepper Patch. My swap partner is Lecia of Farmhouse Prims. I came home from some errands yesterday to find this package on my porch.


Hmmm.... I knew who sent the package, but what goodies are hiding inside??


Even though I wanted to rip open the packages, I was a good girl & opened her wonderful card first. I nice note from a new friend....


Inside the first package was this cute little Halloween pillow Lecia bought from another blog friend.... Can it get any better? We're off to a great start!!


Next package....A house & willow tree candle mat~just perfect!! Love it!!


Package #3~a wonderful pack of hand towels & prim Halloween tag. I love crows!! Score ;)


Better view of one of the towels.


I'm showing you all the goodies in the order that they were opened. I think I saved the best for last without even knowing it.
I have to tell a little secret. Lecia was a little nervous about our swap because she said she was not a crafter. These next two items were made by her hands & they are my favorite two items in my swap package. It is wonderful that she came out of her comfort zone to attempt to make a handmade item for our swap. The rule was at least one item had to be handmade by someone. Lecia fulfilled that rule with the pumpkin pillow. I am honored that she made both of these next 2 items for me. She did a wonderful job on both the bonnet & the little prairie doll. I hope she had fun making these & it will something she continues to do. I will treasure them both!


Thanks Lecia for the wonderful goodies my friend. I just hope you will enjoy your goodies as much as I am enjoying mine. If you're reading this, your package will be in the mail soon!!

Enjoy the day everyone~Becky
