Harvest Blessings Swap

Happy October everyone! Fall is certainly here in Minnesota. The trees are almost all colored and the weather is downright chilly. I love it though. Nothing better than cozy candles burning and being wrapped in warm quilts. I try not to use the furnace until it is absolutely necessary.  The smell of the candles and the flickering always make me feel so cozy.

I was blessed on this first day of October to receive my swap package from Jessica Blessings in the Country. This is the first swap ever that I held off opening everything until I took a picture of the wrapped things....see I am getting better. I just loved the black filling paper she had in the box.
 I got some neat tags, a bag with a pumpkin on it and a fall bottle tree and the cutest little turkey cookie cutter.
I got a great painted sign that I love because it is Thanksgiving and fall, I got pumpkin spice soap that smells wonderful, and a delish candle and two pumpkins.

I also got all of these beautifully stitched things. I am so in awe of all the work that went into these and how beautiful they are.
Thank you so much Jessica, you really spoiled me! Also another special thanks to Amy Bumblebee Lane for being a great hostess with the mostest!

Have a great fall everyone!

I'm glad you love it all! I had fun making things and shopping for you!

I forgot to put a note in with the "Be Grateful Give Thanks" cup sleeve. Yours is only the second one I've ever made. I'm still learning on those! Anyway, that was an extra thing I put in your box. Just a fun thing to use if you ever get a warm or cold drink while you are out and about. :)

Blessings to you!
