I just have a few picture to share with you today. The flowers below are from my wonderful husband for our anniversary. They are called Chinese Lanterns and sometimes Japanese Lanterns. They have always been my favorites for fall decorating. I have never had them alive, always dried, but these are fresh and the tag said that they were grown right here in California. I love them!!
I was so excited to see this box come last week! It has been a long and stressful time with hubby being sick and all of the tests, well you know, I told myself I would keep this happy. This box came just at the right time. A big Thank you to Amy form Bumble Bee Lane!! I joined her Harvest Gathering Swap and I was so delighted when she told me that she was my swap partner.
Look at all of the fall goodies!!!!
This Prairie doll was the first thing that I unwrapped! It was so large and just waiting to be hugged!! Amy told me that she was made by Jean from the blog Prim Crafts. I have several of Jeans creations around my home as she and I did a personal swap a while back and she is amazing!! I just love this doll.
This little pillow tuck~ love it!! Goes so well with my little stump dolls
Cute little pea hen, and such a nice candle wrap. Do you know that this is my first candle wrap??!! HHmmmm how nice. Thank you so much Amy.
And below~ this large wax pumpkin candle tart. Smells so nice. And the little acorn bowl fillers, I stuck them in the little bowl with some wax corn cobs that I had purchased form Amy last year.Thank you again Amy for hosting the swap and for sending all of these wonderful goodies. I love them all!!
Here is a pic below that I sent to Amy to tease her as to what she would be receiving. I told her that not everything fit in one box so she was getting two. I was a little late in getting it to her with all that has been going on here and she was so understanding. If you want to see what is in these packages, go on over to Amy’s blog and see. Click on the pic below to bring you to her blog.
Well that sure has given me a little boost to finish decorating for fall. I have been bored with the way things were around here so I decided to move the whole house around. Now I have to clean everything and put it all back in order. Fun times.
