I'm so sorry for the delay in posting photos!

I was so excited to find SnapsAndDrangons package on my front porch! And it was full of goodies.  Cheesy

First, a pair of gardening gloves (that fit perfectly!) and aloe vera lip balm, which was immediately put to use.



A lovely hand embellished flower vase. I love the macrame, and it will look great in my living room!



And, finally, a foam cushion (perfect for my achy knees!) and, best of all- a handmade, hand bound Garden Journal!



The journal is so pretty! And sturdy, too. There are several sections, seperated by divider pages decoupaged with soft garden-y prints and garden quotes, too. AND there's even graph paper included for plotting out my flower beds! I love it!





Thank you, SnapsAndDrangons- I had a great time swapping with you. You really spoiled me!

My Partner Supperhooker has been busy with life as does happen so I am posting one of the Items she received from me. I have to admit I forgot to photo the whole box of stuff But I did photo's of the Fairy house so I could try and replicate it for my garden. I took the photos at night on my front porch. I made it with a wood salad bowl and fat saplings I cut down the year before. I then added studs and screws to the bottom to make it sturdier.


This is a photo before I painted the top. It is so you can tell the size it is on my kitchen counter by the cabinets.

That was why I was having such a hard time finding a box. that the the Garden Basket.

WOW!  I love that fairy house, and it is big.  I having been trying to figure out a cute fairy house, so I might try something smaller to fit in with my container garden.

I received a great package from Amymisha this morning!  I love it all, and it will all be put to use (some already has!)

First some Sunflower seed BOMBS!  I have never seen anything like these before.  DS2 (he's 3) asked if we throw them and they explode flowers  Grin LOL





Bug repellent and after bite.  They smell really nice, and DS1 has already been using them.




4 rolls of seed tape Wildflowers, radishes, thyme, and evening primrose





I have been wanting to make some plant markers for myself, but never found the time.  I love these soooo much!  And lavendar soap with cornmeal.  It smells wonderful, and the lavendar is from Amymisha's garden.



Thanks so much Amy!

Oooh, that is an awesome idea for markers - love them!  Are they coated in resin or something else to make them waterproof?

And the "exploding" flowers is a hoot!  Gotta love kids!

That's an awesome package, lydiaharper!

I think it might be resin.  I'm not sure since I've never worked with it before, but it is hard and clear......hahaha.  Yeah, I had to explain that we need to PLANT the seed bombs, not make them EXPLODE.  He's such a silly boy, but you are right, gotta love 'em.  I am feeling some swap anxiety, I hope Amy likes her package as much as I do mine.
