Wow - more amazing frugal goodies! I love the homemade swiffers! The coupon organizer is pretty enough to make frugal look good (because I know plenty of people who think of it as cheap, rather than responsible). That first aid kit is adorable... I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of the packages!

Four potholders in lovely natural colors, and three green tins for organizing, one was filled with re-usable tea bags!
Just made some herbal tea and the teabags work wonderfully. I really loved the simplicity of this package, and that puzzlr wrapped everything in fabric and used a cereal box for shipping!
Thanks so much!

Dharma_rebel, so glad you like your package.  The hat looks adorable on Marley.    Can't wait to receive your package!

I am really enjoying seeing what everyone is making.  So many great ideas.

Got my package today!



A microwave potato bag (love the print!) and a bread bag like I really wanted.  Matching headbands for my my dd's (you can see in the pic my older one grabbing hers lol).  And even some clothes for my girls.

Thank you!

I received the most marvelous package from Miss Barbara yesterday! Technically, I should have gotten it on Thursday, but I was out shopping when the post arrived, so I got a slip in the mail box telling me I had to wait till Friday to pick it up.

I didn't get pics as I opened the box... My camera was dead, and I just couldn't wait. But everything was wrapped in this lovely paper - green with bird sillhouettes!... I actually saved the paper. (some of it is going to be fussy cut and framed to hang in my bathroom. It MATCHES the fabric I just bought to make curtains from, and totally goes with the new paint scheme!)

So without further ado... This is most of what was in the box. There was too much to fit in a single camera frame! Miss Barbara was so generous and so thoughtful! A scarf and fingerless mittens for me (which was the one thing I was really, really hoping for!), a gorgeous crocheted bag in yummy colors, dishcloths for the kitchen (I swear, she was peeking in the windows... you couldn't get any closer to the colors in my kitchen!), an awesome crocheted soap saver (I will finally win the soap sliver war with my DH!!! Muahahahaaa!), a recipe box with matching cards, and a list pad complete with a pen too girly for my husband to abscond with! (I seriously buy pens at least once a month, because he'll grab one for work, and leave it, then grab another, and so on.)...



Did I miss anything here? No? Ok... still not done...



She made my Lydia a super-cute scarf and mitt set, which coordinate perfectly with her winter coat. She loves them, and says "Thank you," Miss Barbara!



She also made my Rachel a matching set! I actually had to tell her to take the mitts off while eating dinner. Yeah... she loves them! She also says thank you!

Now, Miss Barbara didn't leave my Liam out, either, but I have no pictures. Liam is at his Grampy's for the weekend, doing manly stuff like watching survival shows and riding the ATVs, but Miss Barbara made him a scarf in his favorite color - blue! He was so excited when I opened the box and he saw a gift with his name on it. And after opening it, he promptly put it on and wore it the rest of the afternoon. In the house. =)  His words were, "It's really nice of that lady to make something for me. She doesn't even know me! I wonder how she knew my favorite color?!"  I'll post a picture when I get the boy back tomorrow.

Close up of my lovely fingerless mitts - LOVE the colors!


And the dishcloths - far too pretty to use (Ok - I am going to use them... well, all but one. One I am going to just keep for decor)! Look at the textures! I love them!


Thank you, Miss Barbara. I love everything, and can't begin to say how appreciative I am.

You're welcome, and thanks for posting such great photos! 

Those circular items are face scrubbies!

I received my package from dharma_rebel today, although it may have come yesterday but I didn't check the mail Sad
Rachel, you are an awesome swap partner, especially for my first time!  I love everything you sent and feel thoroughly spoiled!  I received some lovely dishcloths in a colorway I really like, dishtowels in a really cool retro print, reusable produce/bulk bin bags, lavender dryer sachets, homemade laundry soap, dryer balls, nectarine spread and salsa verde!  Thank you, Miss Rachel for all of your hard work!  Now I can't wait until Frugal Living 6!
