Last week was a busy crazy week but there were lots of things to make me smile!
I received the tags from Elizabeth's Retro Kitchen Tag Swap. I had seen pictures of all of the tags on Elizabeth's blog but was not prepared with the amazing art until I opened the package!
I have grouped the tags by color....
(the tag in the upper right and the title tag were made by Elizabeth.)
Paula and I had the BIG appliances....my refrigerator and Paula's oven
(She included a hilarious story on the back)
Also included in our package was this cute guy made by Elizabeth...
Each tage was exquistely made and included a recipe on the reverse side.
The recipes are ones that I will try for sure!
The women in Elizabeth's swaps have become a happy, fun-loving extended family.
There will be a new swap for the summer...stay tuned!
Also in last week's mail was a gift from someone I didn't know beforehand. Debbie Metti is a member of the Swap for All Seasons group and had read my blog post about my (strange) carrot collection.
She sent me this RAK (Random Act of Kindness).
tiny little carrots! Aren't they so cute!
Debbie is quite an accomplished artist and has been published
in Somerset Memories. Visit her blog for more to see!
I just love the women you meet through blogging.
It made me so happy to receive this little gift from Debbie
that I hope to pass that feeling on to someone else.
Thank you Debbie!
Did you notice that this post is titled Things to Make You Smile Part 1?
There will be a Part 2...I thought we should stretch out the smiling as long as possible.
