Spring Swap with Wendy

 It's been a few years since I've swapped with my Friend Wendy of  Ravenwood Whimsies She has been a friend for many years of blogging. We did the Spring Swap and she sent such beautiful gifts....
 The handmade soap her son an dil make, she has a link on her website.Let me tell you it smelled so good even before I opened the box. The little blue jar is filled with the yummiest spring fruit teas I have been enjoying a warm cup every afternoon especially since spring has decided to turn back to Winter....
 And oh my goodness look at this sweet angel!!! LOVE!!! she is a big girl. See the lil Bee Skep in the crock it came with her. She has tiny little fingers which are so darn cute. Wendy even thought to give her a special bee charm since she knows I love Bumble Bees.......
Wendy is a thoughtful giving person.I'm so glad I've gotten to know her over the years. She is hosting a Americana Pinkeep swap over on her blog  http://ravenwoodwhimzies.blogspot.com/  there's still time to join in the fun so head over and sign up.I've finally started my Spring cleaning and of course rearranging and putting out the summer decor so I'll be back in a few days with a few pics. 2 inches of snow expected tomorrow. We had a antique open air market scheduled for tomorrow. Thankfully it is rescheduled by the host. Were is Spring? I'll be nesting tomorrow for sure...smile...~Amy

Thank You Becky

Stopping in to thank Becky of  Ginger Creme Hollow for her gifts from a swap we did. Usually I don't get the wrapping but hers was sooo pretty I didn't want to open it....


Small Pillow, note pad... Bird tucked in a nest on antique mason lid, Pincushion and tarts burning the Amish Kitchen now and the whole room smells of cinnamony goodness....
And just look how sweet as honey is this? ....

Lil Bumble Bee doll and tiny little flowers. Becky's stitching is just perfect she really gets into all the details.Thank you Becky for swapping. Everything was just wonderful!

A little Spring

 We are seeing some spring weather our way. Typical March weather one day 60's the next day snow...A little of my decorating around the house...Not much going on here we did have a nice Family reunion at the hunt club for my Grandma's side. Alot of people I hadn't seen in years. It was potluck so tons of yummy food..
 We of course will gather at grandmas old farmhouse for Easter. I'll be busy holding my new sweet niece...smile....Hubby wants to go to a mud sale tomorrow if the weather holds. (for those of you not familiar it's a Auction that is held during the muddy season LoL) So get your muck boots on....  I'm not much for Auctions because I wait all day for something only to get outbid or get home and think oh my goodness what did I spend my money on.I prefer to just being able to look it over and buy it at flea market or a shop...smile....
 Been getting some swap stuff finished up. Trying to push myself to get the Spring cleaning started but on the nice days I'm out walking the dogs and enjoying it and the chilly days enjoying the last of the nesting.....
 Been planning some new stuff for the gardens. Want to make a twig and grapevine tee pee trellis and grow flowering vines to cover it... Also been contemplating growing about a half acre of sunflowers out at grandma's to cut bouquets and sell at flea market but I'm a little worried about the watering and birds.Since Grandma is on a well I would have to depend on rain or transport water(which would mean hubby is doing the work LoL)
Well I've chatted on enough.Hope you are all having a Blessed week!~Amy
