Seasonal Swap

Ms*Robyn always puts together the best swaps. This seasonal one was for "goddess Pampering." My box arrived while I was in DC, so it was a pleasure to come home to such goodies!!

Peggy sent me the most wonderful things. The note she wrote brought tears to my eyes. She went for a picnic theme, so everything was in a lovely wicker hamper. When I opened the lid, the first thing I noticed was a beautiful vintage black, white and red checked table cloth. It was her mothers and it was used when she was a child when they went on picnics. Isn't that just the sweetest gift? Something so dear to your heart that you pass on for another to enjoy. I will cherish it always Peggy and will pass on the story as it moves through our family. Thank you for your kindness.

There were sweets, balms, candles and even a lady bug sprinkler to run through when it is hot (like right now!). I have calming music cds and even a tea cup and some special teas. I am a Diva (but not Miss Diva) and I am enjoying all my things soooo much!!

She also added an order of her wonderful soaps I had placed from her Etsy store. Go check it out. Miss Diva's personal line is the most luscious I have used (and I'm a soap freak, so I know!). I ordered five so I would always have one on hand and one for the guest room, of course. I wish I could let you smell it. Yummmmm. (Notice the lovely table cloth already being used. I found these adorable lambs up in Georgetown. Too bad they didn't have goats!! hehe. Love you Peggy and Miss Diva!!!

Well, we're getting ready for a thunder storm here (yippeeee!)--only because I have the sprinkler going. So, I better be getting off here. We have some doozies heading our way!
