Goody, Goody Blog Swap!

You might recall that I hosted a Goody Swap recently and I thought I would share what I got from my partner, Sonya Hamilton over at Beyond the Screen Door blog.

First or last, I have to share this item all on its own.  This fabulous bit of bling that I need to find a place to put that is worthy of its fabulousness!  I just hung it off a part of my kitchen light so you could get a sense of its magnificence!

Sonya also included this great trim, which I am actually thinking “Christmas” as a use!  I already have some decorations that have these colors, and I have a couple of ideas to make something using it.

I also got this great smelling sachet of Raspberry Lemonade {which is my favorite drink when we eat out}.  Some pink heart gems and a couple of nests with eggs.

Here it is all together.  Even Sonya’s notecard was great ~ I think she made it!  I love all the pink and green together.

Thank you so much, Sonya, for such great goodies!

If you were a part of this swap and you’ve done a post about it, please let me know in the comments and I will link you up here in my post so that everyone can visit from one central location.

If you missed out on this or would like to get involved in a super easy swap {especially for a first time swapper}, I am planning a cocktail napkin swap for the beginning of November.  Details coming soon!

Hey, Kathy, what a fun swap you had, you really got some goodies! I always enjoy your comments, so thank you for taking time to come by so often. I hope your house eventually sells & you can get settled in a new place if that is what you need to do. It's nice to have those family photos around us.

Oh I love all of your goodies. The trim is so pretty and will be fabulous to trim something for Christmas or any time. Also, that is some really serious bling. I love it. I just saw a beautiful gold leaf mirror tray with a beautiful bottle, a small photo and a big "bling" like yours on a bathroom sink. So pretty. Thanks also for all of your visits and you always leave such gracious and uplifting comments. I really appreciate it. Hugs, Marty

Kathy, what a wonderful gift you received. I do love the beautiful bling. It is a show-stopper. I cannot wait to see what you do with it. I reflects the light so beautifully.

Wonderful items! Hope my package gets to my swap pal, Debbie, SOON! I don't know what I am more excited about...getting her package or her getting mine! Can't wait to hear what others got, too. Thanks for hosting this swap, Kathy. I had SO much fun getting together the items for my box to send. Hope we can do this again. The absolutely BEST part is that I feel that I have known Debbie for a long time and now have a new friend!

I received my box from Debbie and I LOVE everything in it. There was a lot packed in! A YC car jar, bling button, buttons for scrapbooking, other scrapbook embellies, a Welcome rub-on to go on the front door, cute note pad, biscotti, metal beige bird with black "french" print, roll of black ribbon also with white "french print", a scrapbook magazine, a set of little acrylic Christmas stamps, a Starbucks gift GC and a gorgeous handmade DREAM sign. Thanks to Debbie and thanks to you, Kathy for hosting. Count me in for the cocktail napkin swap!

Hi, love your blog and the swap party sounds like fun. I just became a follower although I have been here many times - #700!

I have always loved the picture you have on the side of the black and white painted chest. I may have to give that a try. Can't hurt to try right, after all it's just paint.
