BRIAN AND I HAVE BEEN MARRIED 18 YEARS. WOW I LOVE HIM!
I have dreamed of having that small two story farmhouse that i could "country samplerify" and this blog will be that journey from scratch. Thank You for joining me in the journey, and yes the suggestion box is open.
I am a happy girl today. I recently signed up for another swap with Char at The Pickled Pepper Patch(super talented and I have become a PPP groupie--thanks, Char) My swap partner was Jan from http://oldeharborsaltbox.blogspot.com/. After you check out my goodies, go visit my new friend Jan. She has an awesome personality and Don't tell her, but I think she may have missed her calling as a writer. haha.Her personality is amazing and She's the type of girl that you want to come for coffee and never leave. What a blessing to have met her. And, on top of all of that, she sent me all of this really super awesome cool stuff!!! How can you beat that? I feel speechless about how appreciative I am. The rules of this swap, which was a PRIMITIVE swap, were to find 3 items that some might consider trash and turn it in to treasure for your partner. Well, Jan's items and talent in transforming them were perfect for me. I love them and Jan, Thank You So Much!!!! First, I have really, really wanted a gameboard with a crow, but well..... I was too cheap to buy a stencil to only use once( ya, well at least i am being honest). So I was super happy to find Jan had made this board for me. This is what it looks like on one side:
and here is the other: Awesome, huh? Just look at all these goodies!!!
Jan created this rolling pin out of one that looked new. Awesome. I love this!!! (Please tell max that)wink, wink.
I discovered recently that I had too much red, white, and blue in my front room. I was making a serious effort to watch for green items and wished I had green paint. I know, me without green paint, weird, huh?
So when Jan sent me this perfect green candle hutch, It is very possible that I may have been doing a little jig, maybe. If I was, it is not likely I would want to tell everyone. ok, I was... Happy Dance going on round here!!! Ha Ha!!!It is cool, huh? This candle is called "Olde Hearth"-- and I can't wait to try it.The card is so wonderful, as well and I am going to frame it. The whole package smelled heavenly,thanks to this wonderful potpourri of fixins:
i put it with a candle under my food screen in the kitchen right where I can enjoy the scent throughout the day.
Thank You Jan!!I am busy now finding places for my new treasures.and Thanking God for you and for them.
oops I almost forgot: Here are the items I transformed for Jan:
