My "Bee Happy" swap with Sandi from The Primitive Skate

 Here are my new wonderful swap goodies from Sandi -The Primitive Skate.  What a sweet collection of goodies.   She made so many things....a fabric covered box, the salt dough fillers, bee stake, bee shelf sitter, & patriotic shoe.  Sandi ordered the lovely seed packet bowl fillers from "Country Thyme Primitives".  I pretty much found the prefect spots for everything in the house.

I want to thank Sandi so much for creating such lovely items.  It was a pleasure to swap with her and it couldn't have been any better.  Thank you Sandi!!!  I also have to give a BIG THANKS to Amy from Bumble Bee Lane for hosting the swap. :0)

On other news I had to show you all this sweet dolly I picked up yesterday.   While Silas, Holly, and I where out antiquing at one of our favorite antique places I found her sitting under a table with a teddy bear.  I know she isn't old but I still love her.  The doll is a Joann Miller - Jojocrowprimitives doll.  I was so surprised to find her and I count myself lucky.  :0)
I hope this post finds you all well.

My "Bee Happy" swap with Misi from 1890 Gable House

Yesterday the mailman came to our door with my swap package from Misi -1890 Gable House. I must tell you I was so excited I could hardly wait to get the package in the door. I actually remembered  to grab the camera so I could take a picture of all the goodies beautifully nestled in the box.  I must admit though once I started to open packages the thought of taking other photos left my brain...LOL. I have to say that Misi made me quiet speechless. I am amazed at her generosity and her thoughtfulness!!!  Even though we haven't been friends long she got me and she understood what I love.  Thank You Misi it's been AMAZING!!!!

Take a look at all these goodies.... a bee skep hooked rug by The Red Cupboard, wallpaper box/ bird/ & skep by Misi herself,  Primitive kitty /bear/ & strawberries by York Mountain Primitives, flower penny rug by The Primitive Pear, and last the "Do Goode" fabric by Not Forgotten Farm (in background).   I know.... your heart is going pitter-patter....right....mine sure is...LOL. :0)  I thought it might be nice to show pictures of these goodies in their new spots around the house intermingled with my collection.

I want to say another BIG THANK YOU to Misi for the wonderful swap!!!  It has been a wonderful experience!!!  Please pop over to Misi's blog 1890 Gable House to check out what I made her for our swap and to see her selling blog too.  I have to say I've found a new love....her boxes are divine and her wax goodies smell sooooooooo good too.   :0)  I also have to say a BIG THANK YOU to Amy at Bumble Bee Lane for hosting this wonderful swap....thanks Amy you're the best!!! :0)

I hope you've enjoyed your visit...don't forget to come back I'll have another swap to share with you soon. :0)
