My Swap Package Arrived Yesterday...


I arrived home from work yesterday to find this large box on the table! I was so excited but I had to wait until later to open it as I was rushing from work to go pick up my sister for bible study.

I was paired up with my new friend Joann...a wonderful lady that I am so enjoying getting to know better through her blog! I feel very blessed to have become aquainted with Joann through this swap. You should pop over to her blog and get to know her too!




I was blown away by all the wonderful things that were waiting for me to discover in the box when I arrived home! This was truly above and beyond anything I imagined would be in the box.

First there was this darling little set of polka dot cosmetic bags! How cute are they!?



Then, under the polka dot bags was this absolutely charming box, made like a small suit case. The photograph doesn't even come close to capturing the charm of this little box!



This little box/suitcase was packed full of treasures to behold! There were darling pink socks and lotions, soaps and other potions!




There were three different kinds of candy! You will notice that I haven't posted my menu for today, ahem.....let's just say that chocolate cherries are one of my very favorite candies ever and it's lucky for me (and for my hips) that it was a small package! There are also jordan almonds and wonderful salt water taffy which Vern is feeling very lucky to be sharing in!



And then this darling Cookie Lee bracelet! Just look at how adorable it is!



and last, but not least, a Starbucks card...how on earth did you know how much i love Starbucks gift cards!?




Joann...thank you so much for my wonderful box of treasures! I am overwhelmed by your kindness...truly I am.

Wow what a fun package. I would be so stressed over having to pick out just the right thing for my swap partner. I defineately have gift giving anxiety. lol I am struck at all the things she picked out that seem so perfectly matched to you. She musta spent some time reading your blog to get to know you so well.
Have a great day Today
Love Ya
Debbie
