A Wonderful Swap From across the Pond

Good Morning Readers, I hope this finds you all safe and your loved ones as well
I pray for those affected by the horrific Tornadoes that have taken place

Yesterday I had to run to the quilt shop and on my way home I stopped to pick up the mail, A box was in there with a Royal Stamp on it. I was paired up with a wonderful
Primitive and Folk Artists member for a swap and she is from the UK
*across the pond, is how SILVIA refers to her neighbors in the USA*
I love it She is a sweet lady in a previous post I shared part of my swap that she purchased online from Carol of Firecracker Kid Primitives
another member of our Etsy team
The Wonderful Nesting Box
This picture is of what came in the mail yesterday

I love chickens and Roosters, Silvia sent me an adorable tea towel, a wonderful cup
and a handmade Rabbit are they not the neatest gifts
She also included the little sentiment card that reads
*As long as you are true to the Strength within your own heart
you can never go wrong Don't ever stop believing in yourself*
This little card now sits by my computer and it brought joy to me to read it again
this morning, what a wonderful Swap Silvia you spoiled me far too much
I love everything Big hugs to Silvia across the Pond!!


Hope you all have a Lovely Sunday
Blessings
Brenda

  2. I would just be in awe that I received something from a world away! I won a pin keep ( and other items) from a gal in Australia and while I love them, I am just in awe that I am touching something that has been across the ocean-several oceans! I am but a small town girl and don't get far from home and I know I'll never get that far for sure. Makes me feel pretty special. Of course, I love Carol's nesting box ( big time ), but I would be looking at that bunny and thinking--that's my English bunny-from across the pond!
    Great win, Sweetie!
