Its Here! Its Here! My First Swap!





Oh, I was sooo excited when the mailman handed me a huge pink, yes painted pink box! This was my first swap, Jenny hosted it from Everyday is a Holiday, great idea Jenny, and thank you!


Just look at all the goodies!


All wrapped so very pretty! (I already opened one, I couldn't help myself!)


First, a beautiful pink depression glass plate, perfect! I have several lined up behind my stove, so this is a perfect addition!

Next, an absolutely beautiful white linen apron! Love love love it!


The cutest little crocheted pink and white potholder....oh, and I really need it, my old one is soooo raggy!


Four beautiful vintage french postcards...Love that! I'm doing pink and brown french style in the kitchen, these will look perfect framed!



A beautiful pink tea towel...its hanging on my stove handle right now! :)



Beautiful pink and white vintage hankie!


Simply Shabby Chic Journal....I took a terrible pic, but its filled with roses on the side, and the title is in a gorgeous linen white.



Beautiful Bavarian Hand painted signed by the artist plate....its up on my wall now!

Look at this beautiful little spill vase! I love it! Its on my mantle now!


The prettiest porcelain sugar decorated with roses.....are you sure you don't know me????? Its perfect!


And finally, Chocolate Rasperry Truffles....I hid these from DH, we are dieting, but when he's not looking, they are gone! :~) He'll never know!


Lisa, thank you thank you! Everything is just perfect! And tell your daughter thank you! I love it all!


I haven't even finished hers yet...but its coming soon!

I'm with Beachy. What beautiful treasures. We'll both have to be brave and join a swap soon too. I couldn't pick a favorite either. I love it all!

I must be missing something here...hey girl...when you're not busy let's sit on one or the others front porch...pop on over to my stuffintheburbs post and peek at the piece of furniture I painted yesterday for a client.

The pink package should win the
4-h blue ribbon
