Monday Mail Call

This was the stack of mail when we returned home...
Oh, how I love to get something besides junk mail and bills!
Callie (my helper kittie) was quite curious...
She had been investigating the package on the counter while we were gone...
...Just what could be inside?
It was my package from Tina, of One Wild Swan.
She sent this beautiful handmade Mug Mat.
The colors are perfect.
Check out how it looks with one of my favorite mugs!
This was a sweet swap organized by Donna of Brynwood Needleworks.
Be sure to stop by her blog and say "Hi" and check out the rest of the swap participants.
And speaking of sweetness...
Tina surprised me with these lovely pears,
aged with cinnamon and nutmeg.
They smell yummy!

Thank you, Tina.
I love my mug mat. You are a wonderful swap partner.

And thank you, Donna.
You are a super swap organizer.

I just really enjoy participating in swaps...
The blogging community is just so amazing.

Take care,

My kitties are all over the counter "investigting" too when something new comes in the house. I bet the piece of curly ribbon on your package made a great kitty toy! Blessings ~ Eileen @ Star's Fault

Hi Natalie Sweetie...
A beautiful blog home. I love your wonderful mail. That mug mat is so beautiful. Wonderful colors and I adore the pears, and to be scented as well. I love receiving something other than bills. Love it.

I am coming to you via the PAFA Spring giveaway. Thank you so much for the wonderful opportunity. I love your giveaway and I am your newest follower, Country Wings in Phoenix, I can't wait to see what you share next. Please stop over and say hi. I would be so honored to have you follow my blog as well.

I love giveaways, like everyone, but the best part for me is meeting new friends along the way. I love sharing our day to day lives and creations and ideas. Many thanks again for the wonderful opportunity. I so look forward to your next post.

Many country hugs, Sherry
