I got a box, woohoo!


I joined in this round of the Shoebox swap over at Carrie and Monica's blogs, and I'm glad I did! Look at all the sweet stuff I got from Lizzie, of Adustyframe.com.

The theme was "Bloom," and I have to say this is "abso-bloomin'-lutely" wonderful! I got:

The sweetest little carved wooden bird. She will now sit on my desk!

Pretty party napkins in a floral print.

Two bars of yummy smelling soap in beautiful pastel wrappers

A cute pen with a flower on top--LOL, I sent a similar one to Lizzie!

A packet of Cosmos flower seeds. Yay! I was looking for some seeds to plant to get flowers this summer!

Beautiful note cards with a quote from Isaiah (26:4)--"In the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength."

Flower stickers!

Beautiful fabric--both with tulips! One is lavendar, and one is yellow--and both are plenty big enough to have fun with! (I'm thinking a yellow pillow to brighten up my living room, and a lavendar apron--just 'cause you can never have enough aprons!)

The absolutely most GORGEOUS hand-knit washcloth. I thought it was crocheted until I opened it...wish I could knit like that!

Celestial Seasonings (my favorite!) Chai Tea...Chocolate Caramel Enchanment, which will go very nicely with the nice big bag of...

...Hershey Bliss Milk chocolates!

Everything was wrapped up in the prettiest ribbons.

Lizzie, thank you so much. I know you've had a lot to do lately, yet you took the time to put together an awesome box! If you do another swap, your next partner is getting a real prize!

Here is the link to Carrie's blog, where we are showing off our 'loot':

Thank you, Carrie and Monica, for doing these shoebox swaps! They are a lot of fun and just the 'perfect size.'

Great Stuff! Enjoy! I participated in one of those two sisters' swaps last summer and it was great! My partner was their mom. I missed the sign up on the recent ones. :o(

Mmmm, chai. And that bird is adorable.

Also wanted to thank you for the nice comment on the BurdaStyle site! I know this is several days late, but I just have not had a chance to get over here before now.

So glad you joined this swap. My favorite (to echo others) is that little bird--so sweet and unique!
