~Fall Swap Goodies Have Arrived~

Good Tuesday morning friends. Isn't this time of year just beautiful. I love the smell of fall, the vibrant colors it brings with it and most of all the crisp mornings. Now I'm not big on the rain, cold and windy afternoons and the shorter days. I guess we can't have everything we want so I should just accept what I cannot change.

I want to share with you the Fall Swap Goodies I recently received from my new friend Vicki at Vicki is a very talented crafter. I was thrilled when I received my package from her last week. Sorry once again for the poor picture quality. I am still taking them with my cell phone. I don't' know what is up with our darn camera. I want to get a new one but I really can't justify the purchase at this time.

First up is my little birdhouse. I'm not sure if Vicki made it or not. I love it either way.

This basket was what held all my goodies that Vicki sent. I have some apples somewhere that I want to add to it with maybe a nice homespun bow attached to it. Now if I just knew where I put the darn things. Don't you just love the little heart pin keep on the spool. What a sweet idea. Also included was this little cat made from wool. The leaf with the acorn on it is a pin. It is going right on my coat after I get this post done. What a perfect little gift it was.

This next little pumpkin has to be my favorite. There is just something so sweet about it. I had to get a close up of it so you could see the detail.

Here is my pumpkin with the rest of my mantle grouping.

I just love this rusty looking grasshopper. I have the perfect rock outside to perch it on but I think I will wait for spring to set it out. As for the birds nest, I believe I have a sweet little bird in my stash of goodies that will look just perfect in it.

This berry wreath is so nice. I thought it added something to this picture so I am probably keeping it where it is.

Thank you Vicki for everything you sent. I loved it all. I really appreciate the time you took making these things for me. I will treasure them and think of you every time I look at them.

I hope everyone has a beautiful fall like day.

Hugs and Blessings to all.
