Yes, I do love swapping, and Amy, from BUMBLE BEE LANE, (what a sweetie) has done it again with the "FARMHOUSE SUMMER SWAP" My partner was Vicky-myart.blogspot! What fabulous goodies I received, and she has spoiled me but good. Vicky is such a sweet and caring person, and this is the second time I was fortunate to have her as my partner. Here are the wonderful goodies I received, and believe me, the pictures do not do the justice she deserves. Her work is superb!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart sweet Friend, I love it all so much. And to Amy, a big thank you for another wonderful swap!It has been such a crazy year so far. Can't seem to get done what needs to be done, and the weather has been the strangest. We have been redoing our kitchen, and it has been a nightmare since Day 1! the hubs is on the road for extremely long periods since January, so my communication with him is the phone, and trying to explain to the contractors what I want done and what he wants done ...well...you know how that goes, but finally we are getting near the end, after a near fire, a near electrocution, a minor flood, and having to hire another contractor, we are getting near the end. Oh, and the first contractor shorted my electric out on one side of the house, so it took an electrician to come and fix that mess! I will have to post pics when we are done. I do have my antique cupboard full already. I really love it. Here is a glimpse of it.

Amy, from BUMBLE BEE LANE, held another fabulous swap for Springtime. She is such a sweetheart. I had Jen from BUSY BEE BLOG as my partner. look at the wonderful things she sent me. She knew I liked dolls, and the one she sent me is a gem. She is wrapped in old newspaper, and I love her. Then there was a big bag of prairie grass. What won't they think of next? There was also two rolls of burlap garland for my primitive tree. Can't wait to get it decorated.

I was browsing Facebook and I found the most beautiful cupboard in Pittsburgh. I called Hubby and he told me to go get it, so Thursday I am on my way to the 'Burgh to get it. I am so excited. We are starting our kitchen remodel in the next week or two, and it is going to look great. Here is a picture of it...Isn't it beautiful? Gosh, I am excited. Have a wonderful evening everyone.

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY! Hope everyone is having a love-filled and special day! I was in Amy's HUMBLE HEART SWAP recently, and JoeyLea from LADY LOCUST was my partner. I received my package the other day, and what a nice surprise.
There was a lovely game Joey made and it is so neat. She also made a needlekeep which is so pretty, and a braidedrope to hold the cute little initial ornaments that she had made with my initials on. The little red can held some homemade chocolates that needless to say, are gone, and they were so good!!! It was so nice to get to meet a new friend and thank you so much JoeyLea for the wonderful swap. Thank you so much Amy for all the hard work you do in putting together the wonderful swaps that you host!

I am so happy it is the New Year, as it was rough last year healthwise, etc., and etc. Won't bore you with the details. I have been trying to post pics of my Christmas swaps, but can't get any of the pictures to load. I don't know what the heck is going on. Any suggestions? I want to thank everyone for the wonderful swaps at Christmas time, and as soon as I figure out what is wrong, I will post the pics. Finally warming up in PA. today.The sun is out, and we have lots of snow on the ground. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
