The BEST swap partner

I recently received my package from the reluctant farm chik. It was for the Very Vintage Christmas Swap organized by Heidi at Foxgloves, Fabric and Folly. Deidre proved to be the perfect partner.

We emailed a few times to get to know each others likes and style and she read between the lines! First there was my very favorite candle. How thoughtful to send it! And the cards that she made blew my socks off. They are creative, pretty, perfect and very, very useful. Then 2 ornaments - I always buy in twos because I have two children - that are large clear glass balls filled will iridescent shred and appliqued with white stickers depicting Santa on one and a snowflake on the other. So very cute. My favorite, a recipe box that opens to reveal a scrapbook for family memories be they recipes or photos. Of course, my new BFF did an excellent job of designing the lid and the accordion style pages inside!!!

I will post pictures as soon as I can get my hands on a camera.
