Happy Mail


Yes, this yummy stuff is mine!  It arrived in the mail today from Rachel.  The Spicing Up the Kitchen Swap is the first swap I've taken part in, and I'll have to say it was very enjoyable.

I sent my package away awhile ago, and found myself snooping around the swap's photostream, trying to guess which one was mine.  Of course, I saw Rachel working on this awhile back and LOVED it, but somehow never thought it was for me!

I knew that my secret partner had sent my package a while ago, and when it was taking longer than usual to arrive, I'll admit I was getting a little worried.  The other day as I was showering (I always get ideas in the shower)  I suddenly had the thought, "I bet Rachel has my name!"  I checked up and sure enough, no one else had seemed to receive her package yet.  I tried not to get too attached  to the idea, but I will say I was very happy to see this package in the mail!


Here's a close up of the table runner.  I'll show you some better pics once I've gotten the traveling wrinkles out.  But you can see more photos of it here and here.  It's full of whimsy and linen and all my favorite colors.  And I've never seen any of those Heather Ross Fishes in real life, so I'm very happy to own a few of them now.

Ok, I'll stop gushing now!  Thanks so much Rachel, I love it all!!  And another thanks to Darci and Erin for putting together a great swap!

  7. Yeah! They look like they belong already. You have all that white to make them shine. I'm so glad you have them and so glad they (finally) arrived safely!

    p.s. I have LITERALLY not a single white surface in my home for photographs.
