Oh my, Thanksgiving goodness!!

Hmmm...these pictures loaded up backwards...maybe blogger is tired. Maybe I did it wrong. Whatever.
This is the wonderful package I received from Jenny, at Lipstick and Laundry. I love everything she made. Above you can see the fall banner she made. It is in its temporary home for now. Temporary, as in it will be getting a new home to grace come Saturday!! As in, we are closing on the home on Thursday at 11 o'clock!! Yay!!
Okay, back to the swap...Emilie decided to host a Thanksgiving Mini Swap since she has a derth of Thanksgiving decor. Jenny and I decided to throw mini out the window. And, seriously, I don't do mini well anyway.

I think this has got to be my favorite thing. Look at the squirrel love...So cute!! I believe Jenny painted this. The girl is talented-look at her blog!!

An acorn she handmade. Love it!! Y'all like my new quilt?? I got that thing for a steal at Marshall's for $33 and it came with shams!! I'm gettin' off track...

Here are all the goodies, minus the banner. Love the paper napkins. Slightly addicted to them, I am. She made the little turkey guy. He will go in my dough bowl with my pumpkins. A pottery pumpkin that says Thanks Giving, pumpkin s/p shakers, a raffia pumpkin, a mini pillow, and that gorgeous straw squirrel picture holder. I think Jenny did a great job!! Agree??

Here it was all packaged up so cute when I opened it. Told you my photos were flopped...
Thank you Jenny!!

What a fun package!
So, I'm REALLY new to Blogger, but when I'm writing a new post I *thought* I could select an uploaded photo and then cut and paste it any where in the post that I want it. Did I dream that up? If that's true and it works for you I will feel so proud for being able to give a tip! If not, just disregard this whole comment :)

Many Blessings,
