A Wonderful Swap ! Caution this is a pic heavy post!

Good morning friends! I hope that where ever you are at that you are having an awesome day.It is cold and very windy here in Central Kentucky.The wind howled all night ,it is  a wonder that there are any leaves left on the trees.

I wanted to share an awesome swap that I did with my friend Roxanne.She does not have a blog but is known as Mrs.Smith on some of the forums.I have been blessed to call her friend for a few years now.Rox is a super sweet lady and oh so talented as you will soon see.Here are the pics of what I received ,yup  I did  a happy dance,when I opened the box!
 An awesome beeswax turkey.This smells amazing!
Two bags of her awesome salt dough bowl fillers.No one does salt dough better than Rox!
She made this cool prim pumpkin hanger.
Check out that candle mat and cool pumpkin can candle!

This  a prim dried sunflower swag!Love it!
 A bag of pumpkin shaped tarts!






This is another one of her beeswax goodies ,this time it is a pumpkin.It smells yummilious!
See I  told ya I was blessed!

This is what I sent for her ...
Rox has some pet cows so I painted her this gourd.
I needle punched this pumpkin and made a Fall  pillow tuck with it.

A wool acorn candle mat.

A wool acorn pin keep.

A wooden bowl full of Fall penny candy.


 Six prim pumpkin bowl fillers.
An cider candle and candle hugger.

And last of all a gourd and nut swag.


Well I am off to start a new project or two.We are slowly getting the craft room in shape.Tonight we should be hanging the cupboard doors.I hope that what ever you do today that you find joy in it.Hugs and blessings,Jen

Hi Jen, you and your friend Roxanne and two blessed ladies. Love the turkey, bowl fillers, and all the other items she sent to you. But I also love the items you gifted her. The pillow and candle mat are so pretty and I just love, love, the gourd and nut swag. The candle and wrap are so pretty as well as the pumpkins, candy,,, heck I just love it all. Bet it was like a Fall Christmas for you both.
Cool here even in the south today. A breeze in the air and I am so loving it. Have a great day.
