Am I Lucky Or What!!!!!

Am I the luckiest person or what!!! I along with many other bloggers participated in a "Primitive Porch Swap" set up by Char from The Pickled Pepper Patch. I just happened to get lucky and I was paired up with Char for this swap. You just won't believe what fantastic things she sent to me. They are all homemade except for one thing but I'm pretty positive Char could have made it had she taken a notion to do it.

Are you ready?????

Can you say "WOW!!!!

This is an incredible flower holder. I'm not so sure I want to put it out on my porch. I took this picture at the fireplace before I knew where I wanted to put this baby. Now it is sitting on my kitchen table with these lovely Geraniums from Joann Fabric. Char also said it worked great for holding rolls of toilet paper. Is that lady a genius or what!!!

This is a small hanging plant holder that I probably will put out on my porch. I need to find the perfect spot for it.

Don't you just adore this fly screen???? I wanted to make one for myself but why bother now! I already have one.

Some of you might remember this next treasure from one of Char's recent tutorials. Yes it is her game board. It is already hanging on the porch. The sweet little garden pick is perched in one of my plants in my living room.

I can't say thank you enough to Char for these wonderful treasurers. This swap was so much fun. I even joined her next swap the "Patriotic Porch Swap". Sorry girls this one is already closed. If Char offers one of these swaps again, don't miss your chance to sign up. You won't regret it I promise.

Have a Sunshiny Day.
