My Harvest Gatherings Swap with Lecia!

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!

Isn't this garden flag simply adorable? It is so ME!  And you can bet it didn't take me long to brew some of that wonderful Green Mountain Pumpkin Spice coffee-I had mentioned to Lecia that I enjoyed it and POOF...there is was in my package!  She's such a sweetie.

...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
