Fall Findings Swap

Reveal time for Fall Findings Swap at Bloggerette Sorority hosted by Karen from Some Days Are Diamonds!

Drum roll please...

My secret Bloggerette Sorority Sister is Ann from Tin and Sparkle!
The interesting thing is that she was my secret Sister!
So while I was visiting her blog to learn everything about guessed it...she was doing the same thing with me!!!

She's very talented and amazing. I learned that she recently starting taking wood shop classes, and is learning to use very dangerous machines like electric saws!!! You should see her cutting board.

In my fall swap box that Ann decorated for me (see above pic), I found several neat fallish items.
Ann made me fallish handmade napkins with handmade napkin rings.

She knows I love to bake! I will definitely be using cinnamon and pumpkin pie spices in my upcoming Thanksgiving dinner.

Have you ever visited a Penzeys Spice store? The aroma is amazing!

Happy Halloween!
Tiny little cards made by Ann.
I also found a beautiful Kansas Sunflower hook which I already hung up in my kitchen. Silk fall leaves and small potpourri pumpkins!
I really enjoyed participating in this swap. I think I had more fun learning all about Ann and making her box. Even more fun was shopping for her and hoping she liked everything!
Thank you Karen for hosting a wonderful swap!

  6. Wonderful box and goodies! Wasn't this so much fun? You asked about the cameo In my box to Ceekay. The actual cameo base is an antique that I picked up an estate sale and I bought the Lolita skeleton cabochon from an etsy seller.
    Thanks for the visit!

  7. YAY! You "get" it! It wasn't about just the swap! It was about getting to know a new Sister and make a new friend. That's what makes it so fun. I think it's funny everyone was creeping around each other's blog spying! Love that!
    Lovin' those spices. . . I can smell them from here! And all those tiny pumpkins in your box! PROJECTS galore. She did a wonderful job on your box.
