Swap goodies from Robin and Thank you to Lecia

Hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July. Me I drove a hour to go to a auction that had the most wonderful prims.It was hot and they had no air conditioning but I patiently waited only to find out that in reality I know nothing about the market or some people just have more money than brains.LoL..After waiting for the first few pieces I told hubby I was ready to go.Really the one thing was a wood egg box which should have went for like $50 it went over $200. A picture like I've sold for $35 went for $2300 when the lady ask the man what was so special about it he said I don't know it's austria so it's good.Umm it was a common print not even a painting.See more money than brains..So we drove the scenic route home so I could see all the old stone houses and then had a cook out...Been kinda busy here but wanted to take the time to thank some sweet blogging friends... Lecia http://farmhouseprims.blogspot.com/ was having a giveaway I was lucky enough to win this wonderful bonnet.Lecia makes the best bonnets.I have probly 8 of them and have given a few as gifts.Lecia is a good friend and such a kind spirit.Stop over and visit her you won't be dissapointed...
Next up is Robin http://primitivehutch.blogspot.com/ we recently did the Farmhouse summer swap..Let me tell you she is always so fun to swap with..Got a giggle out of this...
She sent hubby his own bag of my favorite chocolate so he wouldn't eat mine..I didn't tell him she sent my own bag so he offered to share.LoL...Of course as you can see below my bag was already tested as I opened my gifts...
Vintage berry basket...uncle sam..towel and beeskep pad...Below charming light with rusty hive cover..handmade Farmers Market wood sign..Tarts..Pantry cake..Watermelon slice and address book..
Patriotic Americana Pinwheel...
Now wait there's more!!!! Oh I just adore this little doll and the stitchery..Looks just perfect displayed with the stars....
All such wonderful gifts from another sweet friend..Thank you so much Robin! I've got another Thank you to do for Theresa in the next day or two and more to share just don't want to make this post to long.Hope you have a great weekend.~Amy

Lucky girl....lucky girl!!!
How awesome are those goodeis. You really did get some great things and I saw what you swapped with Robin. You both know each other well.
Don't you just wonder what is in the heads of some people for what they will pay for something. Amazing.
Blessings,
Karen

The bonnets always add a neat touch. They are fun to sew too. I really like the Uncle Sam doll. I keep telling myslef I need to make a black doll someday. -Steph-
