Primitively Patriotic Swap
I arrived home from running errands to a rather pleasant surprise...there was a box waiting for me on the table under my mailbox. Usually that table is filled with packages outgoing...it's unusual to have an incoming one.
OMG, I opened the box and was almost afraid to unwrap all the wonderful goodies that were contained within. It was just like Christmas morning. Each item carefully wrapped and revealing yet another wonderful treasure. Oh, I guess I should tell you who was the generous person that was my swap partner. Her name is Lottie from Sweetpeasprimitives .
As you can see Lottie sent me a cute wooden flag to hang on my front door. Perfect for those patriotic holidays to show our American pride. The star bowl fillers are perfect as I already have a nice prim patriotic bowl for them to make a nice home in.
Isn't this little dolly prim-i-licious? She already has a temporary home on my shelf with some other dolls but will grace a new shelf that the hubby is making for me....well he doesn't know he is yet, but he is! LOL! He runs for the hills when I say, how about making me this as he never knows what I'm gonna ask for!
The covered box shown in the first picture will be put to good use holding whatnots and things I may not want the males in my family to find....I know that they wouldn't think of looking in it...too much work! LOL!
Lottie also sent me a room spray in a delicious blueberry scent. It smells almost good enough to eat! Also in the package was a Gooseberry Patch cookbook which I hope to put to good use once our kitchen renovations are complete. I did get to take a peek and there are some great recipes for the grill, so maybe my family won't starve in the meantime.
A notepad for those all important "honey do" list and 2 small American flags that I plan to stick in my front porch planters for more patriotic spirit was in the box too! I tell you Miss Lottie certainly spoiled me!
This swap has been lots of fun and I want to thank Char of The Pickled Pepper Patch for organizing it.
Anyway, thanks again Lottie...I love everything!
