Cup Swap/Patriotic Swap

Another fun swap.  I love doing these swaps.  I think I enjoy picking out the special gifts to send as much I enjoy receiving my package. 
Stephanie at The Enchanted Rose was the hostess of this swap.  She does a lot of swaps , mostly tea cups.
My package (above) was from Judy from Cranberry Morning.  The box was so cute.  It has a chef and cooking things all around the outside.  Sorry that didn't show up well.  I got an amazing dark chocolate bar.......can you see it is half gone, A pretty floral cup, and a bar of her homemade soap.  She makes amazing soap and she sells them.

I sent my cup to Lynn Jackson.  She doesn't have a blog but she is creative and loves doing swaps.  Come on Lynn join us in the blogging world.  It is so worth the time.
I found an over sized mug that I immediately thought Fairy Garden......gee, imagine I included a hedgehog and a watering can pick.  They work well in cups because they don't take up space.  Of course, she had to have a fairy.  I sent her an instruction sheet from my nursery so she would know why I sent these things. 
So see, wasn't this a fun swap.

Sue @ It's a Very Cherry World is having a patriotic swap.  It's for an indoor banner.  She only has 5 signed up.  She could use 3 more to join.  You can make your banner piece anyway you want.  The largest size it should be is 4"x6".  If you are interested pay her a visit or let me know and I will pass on the information.  I'm not sure what I am making yet but I will do my pieces this coming week-end.  Just in case, you will need to make one for each person participating in the swap.

Okay girls, I hope you are having a good week and staying safe in all these storms.  What a Spring.

Just love what you sent and received in the tea cup swap. How fun!

I'm participating in the patriotic swap, almost done making Sue's swap idea!

Such wonderful items from Judy :) Her soap is addicting and smells heavenly! I bought some raspberry soap a little while ago and my son wanted to eat it because it smelled so good :)

Love the items you gave Lynn - the mug is so beautiful!

Thanks again for joining...I am very glad you did!

Hi Debby,

I just love the red watering can pic you found! it's perfect for a fairy garden. I don't know which fairy garden you did I like the best.
My favorites are the little china plate, the love rock, and the garden with the little white picket fence section with the love rock.
Hugs, Lynnie

Hi Debby, I really loved my mug and fairy items. They were just so cute. Going to do a garden with them soon. The mug is just beautiful. As far as the soap you got from Judy isn't it the best? I have many bars of them and the smell goes on and on and last forever. It is the best soap I have ever brought. Thanks again for the treats and so nice to meet you Debby. Best wishes, Lynn

Debbie Harris said...

Hello Debby, your gift package was lovely, and yes that soap... Amazing!
I too have purchased her soap and I just love it.
These exchanges are wonderful times of meeting and making new friends.
Have a beautiful weekend!
Joy! Debbie

Really enjoy the swaps and I do think I like picking out treats for the package the most, except for the sweet bloggers I get to meet.
