I am so excited that the day to show off our goodies is finally here. I have participated in lots of swaps before, but this seemed one of the most unique and fun ones I had spotted.
I am a Southern girl...but my love of monograms has been kept to a minimum I have spent plenty of time oogling items I adored...but never really took the plunge to get them for myself. And wait till you see what I got! And you will see that my partner did me up some kinda good!
But first, meet the lovely lady I was paired up with for this swap. Rachel from A front Row Seat. She is just the sweetest girl and we got along really well. She is from Mississippi and I want to hear how she talks. Mainly because lots of people ask me if I am from there. Remember back to my whole "I don't have an accent post?" ha so I want to compare;)
I was actually so excited over what I sent her that I couldn't even imagine what I may have been getting. And then we were headed out of town and after checking with Fed Ex my package was supposedly on it's way out for delivery but when we headed for the airport, it still hadn't made it's appearance.
So I had my neighbor pick it up for me. And midway through I could take it no longer and I texted Tharina and she was sweet enough to open it and send me pictures. She was pretty funny in drawing the whole process out. Sending me texts of the box, then the opened box and finally...
I saw the light and the light was amazing.
My favorite colors and I love and utterly adore the anchors. She did such a wonderful job of reading what I would like. I couldn't have picked out a better choice for myself and cannot wait to have my next gathering and show off this lovely platter.
Thanks so much, Rachel, now head over to her blog to see what I got her.
and thanks again to Nicole and my sweet friend, Sara! I loved everything about this swap!
|so very true.|
