My Favorite Things Swapparazzi Loot Arrived!


Talk about a bounty of bloggy goodness! Marla at Stolen Bon Bons must be my long lost sister! She sent me so many great things, all her favorites! How did she know that they're my favorites too! (Mamarazzi is the best at matching up partners who have lots in common!)

I can hardly believe that she sent me a beautiful Willow Tree Angel! The first in my collection, but not the last! Isn't she gorgeous!?! She also gave me a beautiful blank book! Absolutely one of my Favorite Things!

A sampling of sweet smelling, foaming, bubbling bath and body stuff! (With five kids, she probably enjoys the peace and escape that a hot soak provides, as much as I do!)

And The Cookie and Biscuit Bible! Woohoo! I can hardly wait to whip up a batch of decadent treats! I've already been perusing it to see what I want to try first! It's like the Sears Wish Book for Bakers!

Thanks so much Marla! I'm sure if we lived next door to each other, we'd be best friends! However, with 11 kids between us, I'm sure the neighbors are glad that's not the case :D

I'm so glad that I participated in this swap. I wasn't going to. I was feeling poverty stricken and stressed, but Mamarazzi saved me a spot ('cuz she loves me) and I'm glad I took the chance! It is really as much fun to plan and prepare for a swap as it is to get a box full of treats in the mail. The best part is making a new friend! Go check out Our Dandelion Wishes to put help decide the theme of Mamarazzi's next swap, coming up in April. Talk about democracy in action!
