Swap Package Monday....

Like many others, I do NOT like a Monday. But yesterday was different. As I parked in the driveway I spied a package on my porch. Ya-hoo!!! I knew it was from LeeAnn - my Pink and Green swap partner. And I couldn't wait to get into it. I tried to take my time opening each package - wrapped so nice in twine and ribbons with tags attached - but it was sure hard to be patient. I was glad I was all alone. My daughter would have said "WHAT is wrong with you...tearing into that like you're 6 years old?!!??!!"
I've decided that LeeAnn and I have met - we just don't know it - because she sent things "with my name written all over them" as we say. I absolutely love it all!
S - Soaps
Handmade by her aunt, with a wonderful minty fragrance! My daughter is already begging me for a cake of it.
P - Pillow
Embroidered and handmade by LeeAnn - I saw this cow on her blog once and just loved it and canNOT believe I have one now. She also made a pillow form case to go with it. Love it, love it.
R -Remnants
These are the perfect size to do small handmade items with. I began cutting a few last night to try my hand at one of the doll quilts I keep seeing at turkey feathers and other blogs. As soon as I saw the colors I knew that's what I would do.
I - "I really love this plate/platter" LeeAnn said. And so do I! I'm finding a special place and use for this.
N - Notepads, Notecards, Notebooks.
As LeeAnn said, you can't have too many of any of these 3 things. And I know I'll use each one of them.
G - Green Felted Flower Pin
This is soooo pretty. The picture does NOT do this justice. LeeAnn made this from a thrifted sweater and she put a large pearl ball-type button in the center. This pin will travel back and forth between my off-white cape and my off-white purse. I can't wait to use it!
This is my first swap and LeeAnn's also. I love everything she sent and I hope she will like what I've sent. (My package should be at her door today.)
Thanks again LeeAnn.

Everything looks so pretty in the photo. I still look at it and say, " Man, I love that stuff!" and I sent it! Ha. That pin will look smashing on an off white coat and purse. Hmmm... I need to make an off white purse to go with a green flower. I'll add that to my project list.

You did very well! What wonderful goodies! It's so neat to see all the different ways people interpreted each letter - what a fun swap : )
