Sweet Tweet SWAP ~ The Big Reveal!


I Joined Ele at A Bit of Pink Heaven for her Sweet Tweet Swap in Honor of Spring. Be sure to click on her name to see the other participants of this FUN swap!!! This was so much fun!!! SPRING has to be my favorite time of the year because the dreary days of winter are gone and new growth is all around us. So this swap was just what the Doctor order! lol

But alas I digress...sooooooo, back to our swap... as you may have guessed, our theme meant we could do Fun Springy things! My partner was Lisa, who doesn't have a blog..but I sure have enjoyed getting to know her! What a sweet gal she is, so busy with 3 young ones but the nicest person ever! I think we both felt like kindred spirits in many ways!
Well Lisa, had a slight advantage of being able to peek through my blog and she did such a GREAT job of figuring me out, LOL. OH, MY, GOODNESS! She sure spoiled me just wonderfully. See that gorgeous box? It was FULL of Sweet Tweet Goodies!!! The Hat Box was all covered in Roses and a little yellow finches, of which we get finches in the spring here, and they are my favorite bird...so bright a sunny yellow and fun to watch!
She had that hat box filled to the brim with so many good treats..my head was spinning! See?

Oh Dash!!! Those blurry white birds are darling salt/pepper shakers. And of course, this girl LOVEs plates of all kinds, too!


And then I amwondering how she figuring this one out I LOVE bracelets and have so many. So of course she sent this bracelet which is JUST full of roses, for *Moi*...you know, the Queen of Roses, here! It was her favorite...but of course its mine as well!


And then of course, I could not forget my other FAV, this wonderul Large Tea Cup...Lisa, I have already used this for my Morning Coffee...does this count for 1 or 2 Cups? lol


And last but surely NOT least of all of my goodies...is this sweet felt blue bird...Oh pictures just don't do this sweet bird justice, you really do need to see this in person...but wait, its more than that!!! It's a TAPE MEASURE!!! Yep it sure is...but you CANNOT have it its MINE!!! lol

Lisa, you did such an AWESOME job and I am so enjoying all of my new goodies and have them spread throughout my home, and when I see them they remind me of you!

Now, since Lisa doesn't have a Blog...I offered to show pitures of what I sent to her. So below are pictures of some of the goodies that I sent Lisa. The sweet box with a Dove was somethinge I made especially for her. She said she loved blues...and so do I...so this was an easy one for me!



This is a letter *L* that I did for Lisa . It has pink seed beads with some of my handmade clay roses.
I also sent a petitte cake, lavendar sachet, some birds egg sweets, clay roses and a blue birdsnest tassle.
Thanks again Lisa...and Ele for organizing the fun swap.

This has been a SWEET Tweet for sure!!!
