Seasons of Friendship Swap Goodies

I recently hosted a swap called Seasons of Friendship were each person picked a favorite season and you sent them at least one item that matched their favorite season.I had a extra person so I had 2 swap partners and I have wanted to swap with Michelle for awhile so we decided to swap as well.You might want to grab some sweet tea plenty of pics to follow..smile..Michelle hasn't recived her goodies yet so you'll have to check her blog http://michellefincham.blogspot.com/ in a few days to see what she gets..I recived two of her special penny rug runners..Look at the beeskep I love this!! She also sent me a sugar cookie candle,her salt dough ornies gathering,a doll,lavender sachet and Mary Engelbreit magnets...Michelle always goes above and beyond for her friends and I am so thankful to be her friend.....

Theresa does not have a blog but has a wonderful etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/Teesteddies?ref=pr_shop_more She is a very talented artist and I was nervous to have her..She sent me a prim prairie doll, wool crow on pumpkin pillow and stitchery pinkeep,there was also a little beeswax ornie but I forgot to put it in the pic...Look at the stitchery she made it so special by putting my intials in the design.I love everything she sent and she took the time to wrap everything beautifully with flowers tucked in...


I sent Theresa a grey and rust handmade mohair bear,a small gourd pumpkin basket from last years garden, a wool felted crow pinkeep and

Bethany Lowe Halloween Girl....

Last but certainly not least Lindee she doesn't have a blog yet either.I was excited to get to know her better because she has such a kind and giving nature..Here are the goodies I sent her.Bumble Bee and Beeskep Tucks,Some Grungy Beeswax spiced dipped eggs,Rusty Tin, and penny rug purse (her first penny rug ever..smile..)

She sent this beautiful wreath which I might add no hot glue was used she stiched each piece to the wreath..It found it's home in the sunporch room...

This next pic came out blurry.Prim harvest doll and little scarecrow....


The dolls dress is stitched Harvest Blessings but I decided to leave her out year round since she is so sweet.She is going here....

Girls thank you so very much.Everything was so thoughtfull and beautiful and I will cherish them.Tweaking pics coming soon as I find homes for all my new prims...I'll be posting the fall swap sign ups within the next week.I want to give everyone extra time on this one before they need to ship since we are all so busy this time of year...So I guess you figured out my season from the pics..smile..Have a wonderful week!~Amy

Amy, Everything is perfect for you. I am anxious to see your new displays. Michelle does some very awesome pennies. She just sees a picture and makes it. She cuts out all the pieces by hand. Her pennies are priceless, one of a kind creations. I love them!
