Farmhouse Summer Swap with Amy From Bumble Bee Lane

What a wonderful swap with my good and sweet friend Amy from Bumble Bee Lane.  Not only was Amy one of my swap partners but she was the hostess for this lovely swap.
I was hoping Amy would pick me as her partner...LOL.....I already had a plan you see and I wanted to make her something  I wanted to make myself too (I know that's so bad of me... right).  I'm not going to tell you what it is'll just have to keep an eye on her blog to see what I sent her...LOL. :0) Here is all the lovely things Amy sent me.  I must say she really spoiled me...I love everything.  I don't think I could pick a favorite thing... since they are all my favorites. :0)

Amy made this sweet pumpkin doll for me....she knows me all to well.....LOL!!! Everyone who knows me knows Halloween/Fall is my thing and that my studio is decorated all year round with Halloween goodies. I decided this sweetie needed to be where I'd see him a lot and what better place then next to my sewing machine.   I know this guy will be whispering ideas in my ear as I work away. 
Next is this wonderful corner shelf...I wanted to hang it but right now I'm moving things around in the house and I'm looking for a primitive corner cabinet to replace my glass one.  Then move the second glass case out altogether and put this beauty up with a small square primitive table under it (which I also need to buy).   I think for now it looks sweet with my bear.  Amy made the wax candles to go in it too....aren't they wonderful!!!

The table runner Amy sent has already found it's home on our dining room table.  I love the summer like colors and the beautiful bird drawing in the center by Michelle Palmer.  I think Amy did a beautiful job picking it out for me. :0)

This was more then enough but Amy sent even more.  A beautiful box with the sweetest bunny to sit on top...or at least that's what I'm going to do since they look like they were made for each other.  There was a surprise inside the box of Amy's beautiful wax sheep (I forgot to take a photo of him). Here they are sitting on my new $6.00 shelf from Goodwill. As you can see I haven't filled it up yet with goodies....but I know I will soon....LOL. ;0)

Amy even sent more goodies... some lovely photos, keys, and a whisk broom to add to my collection.  Like I said Amy spoiled me with such lovely and dear treasures.  Thank you my friend for such a lovely swap and for hosting!!!! I had another swap partner too and she has received her goodies from me but she was delayed in sending her's out so come back soon to see more Farmhouse Summer swap goodies. :0)

I have just a few more things to share with you.  A while back I bought these two lovely bear drawings from Michelle Palmer.  Once I decided I'd like a banner with our name and wedding date under them I asked Michelle if she'd be so kind as to make one....she agreed.  Here they are all framed and hanging on our family room wall.  I just love Michelle's work!!!
Last we have been looking for a bigger car since late May and we have been going back and forth between the Toyota Sienna and the Honda Odyssey.  Finally we got the price we were hoping for and we brought our new van home.  I wonder what we will name her???  Any suggestions my friends?
Well I guess that is about all my friends.  I hope this post finds you all happy and healthy. :0)
