Can You Stand More Goodies??

Guess what I got in the mail on Saturday!! Lookie Lookie...What do we have here. I participated in another great Swap hosted by Char from The Pickled Pepper Patch. The theme of this swap was Christmas. I got lucky and had Char for my swap partner again. Look at all these goodies she made for me. Sorry but I am not the worlds best photographer so please keep in mind that these prim goodies look way better in person than the pictures show. Char is so talented. If she does another swap in the future be sure and join it. You will have no regrets. There are some very talented ladies that participate.

This is an over all picture of everything I received. We had rules as to what we were to include in our swap.

Here's what the swap consisted of.....

1st 3 homemade ornies. Didn't she do a wonderful job on these. I have the perfect peg rack to hang them from.

2nd a textile item. She sent me this wonderful piece that she stitched Christmas 1802 in the corner and she stained it all old for me.

1st and 2nd are grouped together.

3rd a wooden item. This sign is just fabulous. It looks like it was made a long time ago. Sorry but you have to tilt your head sideways for this one. I thought I flipped it but apparently I didn't.

4th a lighted item. She hand dipped these lights and scented them as well. The smell was so delicious when I took them out of the box, it made me drool. They will adorn my grapevine tree this year. Char also added some homemade tarts. They smelled good enough to eat. My house will definitely smell good for the holidays.

5th was an item of the designers choice. She made this candle holder with candles. I just love it.

Well there you have it. A Perfect Christmas Swap. Thank you again and again Char for being such a good swap partner. I look forward to participating in the next one.

Warm hugs to everyone.

I'm A Winner!!

Look what I won! Who doesn't love cookbooks....especially ones from Goose Berry Patch!!

Now you might be wondering how I won this gem. Well it came to me by way of Carey at American Girl Primitives-N Such. I also won the fantastic plaid dish towel that you can see under my cookbook. Thanks so much Carey for picking me as your lucky winner. I have read the cookbook from cover to cover and marked several recipes that I thought I might try. Thanks for the little note at the end of the book as well. I will always treasure this.

I hope everyone had a great weekend.

Warm Hugs and Blessings to all,

ps..Check back tomorrow for some pictures of the fabulous Swap Gifts I received from Char at The Pickeled Pepper Patch. We were partners for her Christmas Swap. I promise you won't want to miss seeing what I got.
