Birds of a feather...

Oh my gosh, y'all, I received a very lovely package today!! I participated in Lori's Birdie Swap and had Heidi for a partner. Let me tell you, Heidi did not disappoint. Look how cute it was packaged!! Love the bird confetti!!

Love the twine!! So natural and rustic...That box on the right has scallops, y'all, scallops!! I love me a good scallop. The shape not the food!! ;) The bird tag on there is so sweet, too.

Another sweet box, with a bird on it!! Look at all that bow...Heidi knows how to make things super special!!


I see my name...love it!! Growing up I could never find anything with my name on it. This just tickled me!!


All of my goodies...beautiful cards, a robin print, tags, book plates, earrings-wore those today, stickers, a make-up bag, two bird plates.

"to each bird, it's own nest is beautiful" Look how gorgeous these cards are. I will have to take the ribbon{actually seam binding} off and take another photo. These cards are one of my favorite things in the package and I plan to frame one. Can't get any better than a bird with a crown, a nest, and a skeleton key tag...And those colors...be still my heart!!

These plates will look lovely in my chocolate dining room.

The book plates on the left are going to be great to mark my decorating and craft books. Cookbooks, too. Love the bird tags on the right. I do have quite an affection for tags, lately.

The bird in the frame is just so pretty and Lilly took it upon herself to place it on the mantle. I am getting her trained early. ;)

Love the fabric of the make-up bag!! Great colors!! I am forever misplacing my lipsticks in my purse{or rather, Lilly is constantly "borrowing" them!!}, hopefully, this will help!!

The lovely robin print that I also plan to frame.
Thank you, Heidi, for such a lovely package!! Thank you, Lori, for hosting the swap and for giving me such a great partner!!

I stop by from time to time and when I saw this post I started to drool! Well not really but almost excited as you were to receive your goodies! I went right over to Etsy and purchased a set of those gorgeous note cards from Wendy! They are truly beautiful and she was super quick in getting them out in the mail. They will be coming all the way from Australia! I may just burst with excitement when they get here! Thanx for sharing your goodies!
I am going to be framing one of them and placing it in my brown and blue half bath!
Terrific blog!
