Pretties In The Mail ...My Swap Goodies

I received some pretties in the mail over the weekend. Deb Riddell of Paxton Valley Folk Art and I were swap sisters from the swap the PAFA team had. I gotta tell ya, I should have taken a picture of all the presents wrapped so pretty. It was such a shame to have to open them and ruin the appearance. Deb had each tied with string/ribbon and had attached a hangtag to each. Such a sweet touch. A lovely note card was also tucked inside.

Deb sent those sweet fabric daffodils. They look almost real! I put them in a 1/2 gallon mason jar and they look absolutely stunning.

Isn't this wood plate the neatest? It's a Terrye French penny rug design of a bunny. Boy, let me tell you, Deb sure can paint! I had the star plate holder and thought it would display the plate nicely for now. I may change my mind on that once I get to the craft store though! LOL!

Deb was also sweet enough to send some sugar free candy knowing that I am on a low carb diet. Haven't had any as yet...trying to be good til I lose 2 more pounds...then I'll be in the home stretch. Ok, so back to the other goodies...yep, there's more. There was a letter "D" with a hook and a note pad with the letter "D" on more will the family be able to walk off with my note pad! LOL! There also was a bag of pastel eggs for Easter. Haven't figured out where they are going yet and need to find a big bowl or a basket to put them in.

I just love everything that I received. I want to thank Deb for being such a sweet person and lovely swap're the best! Thanks also to Brenda, TheRustyThimble for putting together the swap for us gals at PAFA.

Deb, your package is on it's way to you and should be there any day. Sent my hubby to the post office to drop it off...they had a glitch with it....almost didn't get it off in the mail as the custom forms were backwards in the envelope. Also the middle son, ate some of your swap gift, so had to make another trip out to replace what he ate! Boys! They will eat anything that isn't nailed down, glued o painted!

Until next time....
