Swap Goodies From A Wonderful Friend











































Hello Friends,


A while back in chatting with my sweet friend Lecia over at "Farmhouse Prims"http://farmhouseprims.blogspot.com/, we decided that we would do a private swap together. I fell in love with her prairie bonnets that she makes and sells and she fell in love with a door hanger that I had made for another swap that had two Kitty's inside a watermelon. So we both agreed that we would do a private swap.


I have to say that is was such a pleasure swapping with Lecia, she made it so special and really spoiled me with all the awesome goodies that she sent me! The first thing I opened was three wonderful watermelon slices that she had Jean from over at "Primcrafts" http://primcrafts.blogspot.com/ make for me. Look how cute they look tucked in my basket of Hydrangea's. Then I opened another great package, It was one of lecia's prairie bags with a wonderful slate and chalk bag attached to the prairie bag, gosh I love it so! I can't wait to hang it on my shelf. Then there was a wonderful table runner that she made which goes perfect in my kitchen and I so love the fabric she had chosen for the runner.......so prim perfect! Then the next package I opened was one of her awesome prairie bonnets.......YESsssss she did send me one! And to top it off, she made it in one of the greatest prim prints and awesome mustard color. I am so, so happy with it and my pictures really do not do it justice. If you have not purchased one of Lecia's bonnets, you are really missing out! She does such awesome work and the prints that she chooses for them is so primtastic! If you do go over to her blog to check the bonnets out make sure you check out her new style bonnets she is working on now, they are wonderful as well!! Ok, on to my next goodies.....yessss there's still more, do you believe it? Now see why I say she spoiled me so! In writing back and forth I told Lecia that I Loved and collected Mammys, soooo..... yes you guessed it! She sent me a Mammy bagholder and to my surprise it was made by one of my favorite artist Maureen from "SweetMeadows Farm" http://sweetmeadowsfarm.blogspot.com/ Oh my gosh, I am still in awww! It is the sweetest thing, it's hard to see in my pic.'s but, the mammy is holding a little baby in one hand and a cute baby quilt in the other. It is so adorable! Lecia also included in my package a wonderful gel melt that smells so yummy and a beautiful card about friendship. So gals.....was I right or what? I have truly been spoiled here and can't begin to thank Lecia enough for all my wonderful goodies! I have been so blessed again to have made such a wonderful friend who has shared a little of herself with me and has brought me such sunshine and smiles through her creations and with all her wonderful goodies...........Thank You Lecia, your the best!


Until next time friends........Big Big Hugsssss Mary

Lucky, lucky you Mary!! You have just swapped with the Swapping QUEEN!! LOL! She truly did send you some wonderful goodies - like how you displayed the watermelon with the hydrangeas...And Lecia's bonnets are legendary (and addicting!!) I have one that I adore and would love more - I've been eying up those mustard color ones myself....Just have to figure out where I can sneak another one (or more in!) I know you will enjoy everything!! Have a great Thursday! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
