I've been putting it off because I wanted to show them displayed but things have been busy and haven't got them in the proper place yet.Let me tell you the swap goodies were nice but getting to know Tricia was even better.She is such a kind and wonderful person with a big heart of gold! These two things I have the perfect place for as soon as the room is put back together... She also sent some yummy chocolate,a game board,candles,a wood bowl and some eggs..Loved it all! Thank You Tricia who is now such a wonderful friend...

You did well at the flea mkt. Tricia sent you some awesome gifts! Can't wait to see the little slip!
I notice that we share a love for enamelware.
Haven't placed my trencher yet. Waiting to put away these Easter displays.
Gotta load the truck--several times!
