The Art of Swapping


Today was such a neat day. I had been out running my daughter everywhere...to driving instruction, out with my friend *thrifting*, daughter to basketball training session and when I got home from going to the grocery store I had a Box awaiting for me to open.

I could hardly contain myself and tore into it. What I recieved was absolutely gorgeous...my PUMPKIN SWAP arrived. Why am I so excited...well my wonderful group Pretty Romantic Homes, an ebay group came up with a wonderful swap in July to do for our fall decorating. We were told we could do anything, as long as it had to do with pumpkins. Well...we have such a wonderfully talented group of ladies and what they have com up with is just unbelievable. Be sure to check my PRH friends blogs.

My swap Partner was Ele, who lives in North Dakota of pinkprairielady and has the most wondful studio on her property, which is an old church! What a luck gal I was to recieve her OHHHHH Soooo glittery pink collage for fall, and a sweet tag with a white lacy runner. I was so spoiled...and I will also include pictures of what she recieved from me. Would love to hear from y'all about what you think.

Thanks Ele, you have made my fall so much more special this year!
Beautiful Pink and Glittery Collage...
