TGIF & a Sweet Spring Swap

Finally...and, I mean, finally...
it is starting to look like we might have spring here.
The snow has vanished from our front yard...
while the neighbors still have a drift in front of their house.
This week's mail call...
A Swap Package from Charlene of Cat's Designs
A lovely note, an apple scented candle,
and who doesn't like Reese's Pieces?!
Charlene has an amazing talent for painting.
She sent a hand painted wooden tag,
this precious angel keepsake box,
and a Happy Spring sign.
...which has a perfect perch in the window sill over my new sink.

Thank you so much, Charlene,
You were so generous with your spring swap goodies.
You should all stop by her Etsy shop and see more of her wonderful creations.

Happy Weekend.
Happy Spring.

Take care,
~Natalie

Great swap goodies. Enjoy.
We are finally seeing signs of spring here as well and just a whole lot of mud to go with it. I think I might see a bit of new green out back and four foot snow drifts out front lol.
