Okay, are you ready?
First, who doesn't like color coordination?Huh She used my favorites, and everything matches...SWEET! Cheesy

Okay, I didn't do a group shot, because, well, I need to give everything the credit it deserves and do a close up Wink

First, the package arrived Saturday around 5:00, Sunday, at 6:30am we were going to the coast, so I took this LOVELY tote with me!!...here's an action shot Wink...


Then, there's the personalized coffee mug, which has been used MULTIPLE times a day since I got it...again Wink action shot...

Next up, a box with personalized book plates...how cute is that? Even the BOX is coordinated Wink...

Now we have wonderfully cozy knitted slippers to wear while I'm reading my newest scores from the library...again, daily use so far Wink...in fact, as I type this, my toes are warm and happy...

Next...who doesn't need bookmarks? I know I do!...and these rock my socks Cheesy


So that I can totally relax while I'm reading, she sent me some lovely green tea candles (How did you know I *LOVE* anything green tea??)

Nope...keep reading, I know what you are thinking, and I"m not done yet...

Next, some handmade envelopes from pages of an old library book (how cool is this?)

Of course, I'll need stationery to go IN the envelopes, right?
(btw, the colors are MUCH more vibrant on these sheets of paper, quite like the box my bookplates were in!)

She also sent a Library Companion for keeping track of books I have checked out and those I want to check out, as well as a Reading Log to keep track of what I've read!



So, what'd I tell you? That you'd be jealous? Yes...yes...toldja'!!

Thanks so so so much Amanda, I only hope you are as pleased with my swap package as I am with yours!  What a great swap Cheesy

I'm going to be a  few days late shipping, I already let my partner know. I had to order something to finish my large item (couldn't subsitute, couldn't find locally) and I didn't want to start over.  I'll ship priority though, so that she doesn't have to wait too long Wink

Great start to the gallery! (And I, too, love the color coordination!)

My own package should be going out late this afternoon.

Oh,no...now my package seems so small...Especially love the slippers.
I am mailing today, but I told my partner that another package will be following due to some family constraints. She's an extremely amenable swap partner Smiley
And I am sooo jealous of your beach background!!!
