So Me So You Swap Goodies!

Tammy from A Primitive Place organized a fun swap called "This is So Me, This is So You". Our assignment was to get to know our swap partner through their blog and then send them something that we believed reflected who they are as well as something that revealed a little bit about ourselves. I was paired with the very talented Wendy at Ravenwood Whimzies and quickly realized, we really liked a lot of the same things. Wednesday evening I arrived home to find a box waiting for me and inside were all these beautiful goodies--gardening doll, stitchery picture, wood box with waxed stars, homespun dishcloth, notebook & pen, candles and a sweet note from Wendy!
Wendy made this sweet gardening doll with me in mind. The little kitty is painted to look like our Foxy, right down to the green eyes. The stitching on the apron is just beautiful and look at her flower pot with the cross. Just perfect!
Wendy said this stitchery picture is "so her", but it also depicts some of my favorite things so I'll find a special spot for that.

I also received this wonderful antiqued wood box filled with waxed star bowl fillers. Isn't that a great shade of green?
Everything came so beautifully wrapped, including this homespun dish towel---one of Foxy's favorite things to reorganize. I can't thank Wendy enough for being my swap partner. I've enjoyed getting to know her through her blog and her thoughtfulness was really a blessing.
