Le Springtime Swap

A package in the mail! With foreign stamps and the box for "gift" ticked off! Such a great way of ending the day, coming home way too late to find my Springtime Swap gift from Pamela waiting on the counter.

And when I opened it... HOORAY! There were Reece's Peanutbutter Cups (the best thing on earth, unfortunately not available in this harsh climate), a rabbit holding a tiny drawstring bag with the most beautiful earrings, chocolate coins for the kids, a very sweet note, cute bunny stickers and napkins. A veritable gift extravaganza!

The earrings are so pretty. I'd show you how they look on, if not Mary had been so clear about not liking the dress I was wearing, that we laughed too hard to take a good photo. I'll get back to you on that one. But they are. Very much so. (And the dress too, but that's another story.)

And the kids, who woke up to this sight, think the world of Pamela. "They're chocolate? For us? Before breakfast?!" And so do I. Thank you, new friend! I loved it all.

I think Leo could enjoy the idea of swapping gifts with strangers. Not that he would participate himself, but the whole thing has a UN quality to it that he'd appreciate.

Oh what a lovely swap! I love everything you got! So beautiful! I am so glad you two participated in it! Hooray for swapping!

I will be posting a link up to this post of yours soon, just waiting on the last of the swappers and then I will do a post on everything.
