Friends Are The Best Presents!
It's been fun sharing in my first swaps ever.
What a pleasure it has been to become friends and exchange treasures with other bloggers.

Two of my favorite blogs...
***521 Lake Street***

Elizabeth invited us to join in and I'm so glad I did!
Thank you, Elizabeth!
***Sue Loves Cherries***
A few days later, Sue announced her Swap and I thought...Why not?

Thank you, Sue, for hosting!

 Saturday I received a delightful parcel in the mail from Denise Marie of "Bloomin".
Just wait til you see the pretties she sent to me!

I absolutely love the darling swag that Denise Marie created.
It's not only sweet to look at but it's loaded with the sweetest passages of scripture.

This is so very true!
Thank you, Denise Marie..
Devotionals by some of my favorite women...
(Beth Moore is one of my favorites!)
Red and White Polka Dots
Precious Moments,
Chicken Buttons and Ribbon
Cute little Monkeys and Bananas

Hi Carolynn,
What wonderful swap gifts you received from the talented friends in blogland. I just love it all.

Thank you for stopping by and your kind visits and comments. I am just getting back to catching up since our out of town company left. We had a great time and I am exhausted. LOL

Blessings for a wonderful Easter week.

Such sweet gifts and swap!! Happy Easter Carolynn!! Wishing you a blessed week! xo Heather

Jann Olson said...

Oh my gosh my sweet friend what wonderful treasures! So deserving to someone like you. Really Carolynn, you are one of the sweetest people I have ever met. Now, just tell me cutie what on earth do you think you are doing sending me such a wonderful present? Honestly when I first opened it I thought, "oh my, she's sent it to the wrong person, I'm not her swap partner!" lol! Of course I realized that you are just being you. I adore each and every little thing. The spoolie is to die for! Love, love the felted wool bird. It made my heart sing. And of course the wheelbarrow, the placemats, sweet card and oh yes, the fuzzy chick in the egg. I consider it a blessing every day to be associated with you! I pray that someday we will meet in person. I would love to have you come visit any time! Now, don't think it's because you sent me this fabulous gift; but I have been thinking of you lately. I ran across a few things that I bought for my youngest daughter when she was little. She no longer wants them and they have your name on them. I will box them and get them to you soon. Geez, you'd think I was writing a 500 word essay. Just can't express enough how much I appreciate you!
hugs my friend,

Denise Marie said...

I got mine today!! I love it!! Will figure out pic pbls.

Carolynn, those little felted spoolies are so adorable! I am definitely going to try to make one. How sweet they are!

Kathleen Grace said...

I still remember my delight the first time I participated in a blog swap ph so many years ago. Getting a gorgeous package of beautiful things in the mail from someone I had never even met! I was just astounded at the generosity and kindness of my blog friend:>) Now, of course, my home bears the marks of many such gifts and every room reminds me of a dear blogging friend and many happy memories of the fun we have shared online. Your gifts are so sweet and pretty, it's just like Christmas isn't it? LOVE the banner!
