Harvest Swap

When Monica at The Homespun Heart and her sister, Carrie, posted about their upcoming Harvest swap I just knew I had to join. Big surprise, right?!?! This blog has become nothing but swappy almost. Anyway, I was fortunate to be paired up with Monica herself. I was so excited!! This girl is like Martha but so sweet and thrifty. Anyhow, this is what she got me. Knowing I love embroidery hoops, she made a stitchery and framed it in an old metal one(which I have never seen before.) Let's see...she also got me stickers, a leaf punch(my kids love this-they could punch all day), a fun Harvest notepad, ribbon(I do love me some ribbon!), vintage cookbooks(love 'em), some food markers that she made(I loved these ever since I saw them on her Anne post-I tried to link directly to the post, but it won't let me. Its in her September 2008 archives.), a pot with a cute fall mini wreath, a card making kit, a candle(its French, what, you've never heard of Glade'-hee, hee!! Sorry, couldn't resist!!), Indian corn, and a cute crate that says Thanks in orange glitter letters with a pumpkin pod. Love it all!!

The cookbooks...

Fabulous Fall ribbon, the punch...

I love the wreath on the pot-I have never seen one like that before...

I love the Harvest of Thanks stitchery and the food markers. I suppose I could use them for something else also. They have cute little acorns on them. I tell you, Jenny's love of acorns are seriously rubbing off on me!!
Thank you, Monica, for a fun package!!

Edited to add: If you want to see what I got for Monica, just click here or here.

So fun! Oh, Elise, I should have never gotten started on these swaps! I said I was not going to do anymore!! At least I turned down Holly's book swap. Baby steps.... Such a great package of goodies!:) Lori

Hey Elise - it looks like the glitter rubbed off some of the letters of "thanks" in the mailing. Want some spare glitter to touch that up?

Elise,

You and Monica were a great match. She raved about her box, and I'm so glad you're enjoying your goodies, too!
