Swap from Brenda!!!

Tam over at http://aprimitiveplace.blogspot.com/ recently held a prim swap.One requirement was to include a handmade doll.My partner was Brenda http://pinetreeprims.blogspot.com/2011/01/swap-items-received-amy-spoiled-me.html Let me tell you Brenda was soooo fun to swap with! Not because she sent great goodies which she did,but because we actually got to know each other.She and I communicated and talked through the whole time we were getting our gifts together.Most swaps I've done I got one email at the begining and one at the end which is fine but it was alot more fun to joke and talk in between.Ok enough chit chat on to the wonderful items... Above is the plain prim prairie doll.She fit perfect with the heart my sil jean made.She has a stitched pocket that reads Every Day is a Blessing...Below are some other goodies she sent.She went above and beyond we were only supposed to send a doll and two other items....
Crow/pear nodder,notepad,painted tiny windchimes,prim kitty,tiny dressform,pineapple candle mat,she also sent some chocolate and these......

Oh my goodness! George Washington is one of my favorite things!!!! They are resting on a prim tuck pillow...I loved my goodies from Brenda,she put so much thought into them and became a dear friend in the process (the best gift of all)...Thanks Brenda for the wonderful time and prims.Thanks Tam for hosting it was really fun! Warm Blessings!~Amy

Hello Amy,
Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment to participate in the OWOH event giveaway :)
I totally love your blog and all the prim lovelies you share photos of. I don't have anything prim but I hope one day I can either learn to make something or swap for some goodies.
Have a fantastic weekend and I will come back soon for some more eye candy.
Greetings from Mexico ~
