~*Tweet Sweet Swap Goodies*~

Hello Dear Friends! In yesterday's mail, there was a big box of goodies! My buddy Debbie made & gifted me some really awesome treasures! She received my name in the Anniversary Swap for AAPG (an online prim group). Let me just tell ya ~ I was TICKLED and grinning from ear to ear! Trinity was too!

This is a close~up of my new birdie mat...

Can you believe all these treasures?

Besides the birdie mat, there were birdie ornies, a really sweet birdie on a punkin', a White Ironstone dish for my collection, a lovely Fall stitchery pillow, a sweet mini~hornbook, and some yummy scented tarts...

And that's not all! Wool and a charming, vintage pincushion...

Some close~ups...because I know you will wanna see 'em better...

And I told ya Trinity was smiling too. Well, she sent him a box of these small, ceramic animal critters. He is always telling me, when he grows up, that he is going to build a mansion in our backyard (like it would fit! lol). Around the mansion, he wants all sorts of wild animals. He says this will keep keep him safe. When asked how he will get out to go to town... well, that is simple... he says he will take a helicopter. The things kids say! Well, Trinity has a 'fort' that we brought home from an auction. It is a handmade toy & he just LOVES it. He is now pretending that this is his mansion. Notice the animals spread around... and the Hotwheels scattered about...

Kids! Ya just gotta love 'em & their imagination!

Debbie, thank you for the treasures ~ mine and Trinity's... and thank you too for bringing my lil'guy some joy and a smile that always brightens my day!

Wishing you all warm smiles...
