I participated in Chars Patriotic swap. My partner was Sondra from Home & Garden Grace. She is fairly new to bloggin but she has got this swap thing down pat! Look at my goodies!Look at the little pillow she made for me....look at the detail, Love it! The quilted wall hanging is wonderful!!! And a little flag she primed up and added the special tag and... the little metal old glory but look at this.....

I just love him,,,,,he is laying on my table right now, but I think I may add him to a grapevine wreath and hang it above my mantle. Oh he is so purdy!!!
Thank you so much ......I will treasure everything forever!

And if that was not enough I got another package today. Janene and I did a swap...she wanted some room sprays, so I ask her about a spoon rack (she is always finding the best stuff)...So I fixed her up a little goodie box ...and look what she sent me

She even added spoons!!!! I am so in love with it. It looks like the one I saw on Under the Wild Cherry Trees I am so tickled!!!! Look at the perfect color and finish!
And you might remember the cute little snowman she got on one of her latest thrifting sprees......well I commented on how much I liked him and how I was gonna copy him.....well now I have him!

She also put in this cute little angel (I am sure it made her think of me!)
I feel like it is Christmas night and I got the best presents in the world!
Thank you so are the sweetest!

And now for an update on my crocks with painting....
No scraping for me....I am much to lazy for that.
I just put a little finger nail polish remover on a cotton ball and it came right off.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend....I know I will!

  12. Hi Beth,
    What great swap goodies you received!!
    I'm going to have to try the nail polish remover on an old crock that I has what I think is a rub-on on it. Right now the ugly design is turned to the back, but I would love to get it off of there. Thanks for sharing what you did...hope it works for me.
    hugs, Cindy

  13. You got some wonderful goodies Beth! Love all of them!
    I read on one of your other posts that your son wants to teach Theater. My son teaches Theater at Oh. University in Athens, OH. He's getting his masters which they are paying for and teaching while going to school.
    Congrats to the graduate!

    Your house is looking fantastic!

  14. Wow, awesome swaps! I bought a bowl and spent forever scraping the "dads popcorn" painting off the side. GRRRR!!! I wish i would have thought of the np remover!!( my husband did ask where i got that great bowl so i guess i won't feel too bad!)Have a blessed day, Cher

  15. I love swaps also and you got some wonderful gifts. Have a Wonderful Week ahead!

  16. Great idea for the fingernail polish remover. I've seen some crocks with painted stuff on them, but have bypassed b/c I didn't know how to remove it. I'll be on the lookout now. :)


Thank you so Much! Come back and see me again!

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven.
