Christmas shoebox swap: Joy!



It is really joyful, especially this time of year, to make a new friend. Thanks to All That I've Been Given at
http://watibg.blogspot.com/ I got to participate in a Shoebox Swap. My new friend Helen  https://sites.google.com/site/thelifeboatinfo/home ) and I were matched to swap gifts. This was a lot of fun! Look at the sweet items I received.

 Everything came in a pretty tote. I'm sorry to say that I sent her things in a plain shoebox. I hope what was inside made up for it. I was making gingerbread the day I received this and look at these 2 gingerbread garlands. Helen, how did you know?



 Look at this sweet face!


 The tote itself is a beautiful gift.


 Yes! This is a Starbucks card and a coffee cozy. I've already used them Helen...and there was a Starbucks chocolate bar included but I bet you can guess what happened to that. I forgot to take a picture before I ate it----while I was reading these:

 Little Christmas books in the Mitford series. Thank you!


I already have  been using my candy cane soap and Vanilla hand sanitizer.


Thanks for this opportunity, and Merry Christmas to all my friends, old and new!
