Swap Goodness

I have been the very lucky recipient of two very wonderful and talented blogging friends. Julie from Country Girl at Heart sent me this fabulous Wall hanging. We had discussed our need for Spring and decided to do a spring swap. All this color is just what I needed. There is only so much brown a girl can take here in the desert! I just love it, Julie. And the little saying is just perfect. Thank you so very much! Next, I want to show you what Kimberly at My Brown Bag Studio sent to me. I loved this wall hanging that she made a while back and asked her if she wanted to do a swap. I didn't necessarily mean to imply that I wanted her to send me THAT wall hanging, but that's what she did. She sent be the original (bless her heart!). I can't wait to find just the right spot to hang it in my house! Thank you, Thank you! I DO love it! I have been disgustingly tardy in sending my end of the bargain. It was not the completing of the projects, just the sending them this time. I included some extra goodies in hopes that you will forgive me of my lateness! I hope you like yours as much as I do mine.....:) And finally, this is a picture of Mark with one of the people he is teaching. I was able to "chat" with Mark for just a few minutes this morning on facebook. It was so nice. I am happy to report that he is doing very well (despite a nasty sunburn....he said the sunscreen just sweats off them because of the humidity).

Beautiful treasures!!! I don't know which I like the best! What a fun swap. I can't imagine how hot is must be for sun screen to not stay on at all! :0)The W.I.N.D. has been blowing here for two days straight. I have been worried about the tramp blowing over, but so far it's still on the ground! LOL ♥

Great gifts. I am sure that what you sent to them is equally wonderful. I am also glad to hear that Mark is doing well. The girls pray for him in every prayer and blessing. It is the sweetest thing! I am trying to get them to make him some things to send, but it isn't working so well.
