Oh...we've chatted back and forth via comments, and I'm a faithful follower of her wonderful blog, but when Amy of Bumblebee Lane held her recent swap....and paired me with Lecia of Farmhouse Prims...I was sooo excited! I can't say why really...but I guess in my heart I knew that we were some how kindred spirits.
As we shared our likes and dislikes, I came to realize that we had so much in common...and I was really excited to have her as my partner and create some wonderful goodies for her. I'm actually still finishing up some of her goodies, but yesterday I received my package from Lecia! I was honestly on the verge of tears as I opened all the beautiful wrapped gifts she created....
so....here is the package just as I opened it....so pretty I almost hated to unwrap them.
|So many wonderful tags!|
...and now the fun begins......
|I had seen Lecia post about making one of these woolie mats and I told her how much loved it...and she made me one! It is so lovely and I just adore it...cats and pumpkins are so cute!|
|...and Lecia included one of her bonnets! It's just beautiful and the workmanship divine!|
|Here is the bonnet hanging on my rolling pin rack that I won from Carol @ Firecracker Kid|
....but oh...that is not all....there's still more!
|Lecia also included a trio of her "Forgotten Pumpkins"....|
...a note pad and a yummy smelling candle - it's all so wonderful...I get teary-eyed just writing about it and I'm not usually such a sap, but Lecia put so much thought and love into everything she sent!
Lecia - You went above and beyond on this swap and I'm so thankful to have gotten to know you better and share the Harvest Gathering Swap with you. I can only hope that you will love your box of goodies as much as I do mine.....but I have to say.....I'm having a real hard time packing up one of the things I made you....HINT HINT!
Thank you again dear friend
thanks to Amy for hosting another great swap!
