blog swap :)
So how fun is this?
"Mom, you got a package!"
I've been expecting several packages: vitamins I was out of, jars & tins & supplies I was low on, yarn (I know, I know...).
"Who is it from?"
"Someone named Sarah in Pennsylvania."
Setting down my knitting to take a look, I was surprised that I had received not one, but three packages. The vitamins, the jars & such, and the mystery package. Hmmmm. Carefully cutting the tape and folding back the flaps on the box, I spied a card with my name on it.
Still, it didn't register.
Then it dawned on me...
Blog Swap!! :)
"Oh, guys! This is my blog swap package! Come, look!"
A lovely hand-written letter from my new friend in SW Pennsylvania -- the place of my birth!
Sarah blogs at Gentle Home and operates an Etsy shop also called Gentle Home. Be sure to stop by and visit her. :) As you can see in the pictures, I was blessed with not only a note, but also a wonderful hand-crafted collection of personal items including a bar of cardamom/cinnamon scented soap, a peppermint patty lotion bar, a tube of lavender lip balm (love it!), an extra soft handknit washcloth, a felt-covered rice bag that can be used either cooled or warmed, and several beeswax votive candles. What a treat!
THANK YOU, SARAH!! And a big thank you to Amanda who organized the blog swap!
On the flip side, I've been gathering things to send to my swap partner and will be mailing her package later this week...
