I agree, Marie, "Darn these life things I have to do." I hope to have yours ready by Monday. We must remember that it is the thought that counts, not how it plays out sometimes....... :-)

Take care.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Denise your Stocking is on its way!
There will be another small one coming too I will mail it on Monday, because it came in the mail after I sent the first one.

Take care!

Hi Kelly,

I just got my box! Thank you so much. Love the stocking, it's so cute! The Santa is displayed with my year round collection and will be staying out all year. I just grabbed a bite of the chocolate, so yummy! The yarn will be used for a cowl that I want to knit. It's so soft, and I love the color. Did you make the cross? I am going to hang it somewhere in my craft room. Of course it has to be someplace special. Thank you again. Hope you have a safe, happy, and wonderful Christmas.

hugs,
Marcy

Oh my stars !!!!! What a Christmas Stocking package I just received from Vanessa. It is positively awesome. DH helped me "un-tape" the box and said I should wait till Christmas to open all the gifts. I said, "No way Jose" and dug right in to the never-ending box full of the most delightful treats. Speaking of treats, I think some of the yummies are not going to make it until tomorrow when I photograph everything. Then, when I was about half way through, he said, "Shouldn't you have taken before and after pictures before you started unwrapping." Oops~~well just so y'all know every gift was individually wrapped, some in gorgeous fabric. And each gift had a little tag that held a clue or something clever about the gift. This Vanessa is one super uber dooper creative farmgirl is all I can say. More about this when I post the pix tomorrow. Will you adopt me Vanessa?
Big Farmgirl hugs,

I'm baaaaaaccccccckkkkkkk . . . to show you all the wonderful things in my delightful patchwork Ckhristmas Stocking from Vanessa. First an apology, the photo is missing most of the chocolate goodies as well as the awesome antique can opener. DH has absconded with both. LOL. How to describe all these wonderful treats, fabrics, and wonderful things for paper crafts, several packets of seeds, coffees and teas, smell good personal care items, books oh, the Wonderful boooks, mini-chickens for my chicken kitchen. I have the perfect place for them. The cozy socks will get put to good use this winter. But the antique spoons, oh my stars, Vanessa, I shall cherish them. Will post a photo later of my spoon collection. I'm probably leaving something out, it was such a treasure trove. Thank you. Thank you so very much. I absolutely adore everything

Thank you for letting me know Rebecca. I checked on your package and it has no updates since I dropped it off on Saturday - in transit to next location. So much for 2 day delivery! Also, one of the items I sent - I emptied the box it came in on Monday and found one item in the bottom of the box. Apparently it was a 2 pack and I didn't notice it only had one in it. I will put it in the mail on Saturday.

Darlene,
Did you open your stocking yet? The mail is delayed quite a bit here. I sent something priority on another swap on the 3rd and it still has not reached my partner.

Inquiring minds want to know. OK Vanessa, I give up. Tell me please from my wonderful Christmas Stocking of treasures, what, pray tell, is the little blue and yellow fabric double sided thingy with the blue string and little looks like wooden ball at the end. I have wracked my little pea brain and come up empty. It looks like it's probably quite useful for "something" but I sure can figure out what. Too fun -- a puzzle in my stocking.
Farmgirl hugs,
jean

Denise I opened the stocking! So many lovely things,
Thank you so much and for the very sweet card, I love it all. And the Starbucks! Yum.
I will use those pens a lot. The towel Angel is adorable
, and my comfOrt socks are great, I can get rid of my old ones:)
And the teas and orange slices I haven’t eaten those in a long time. I love the white chocolate Reese’s candy it’s great in my coffee.
The snoman is adorable and a beautiful cup and pretty candle and everything is so nice with a fun snowman stocking. Thankyou so much Denise!
Thank you for a wonderful swap.

Hugs
Darlene

Jean I am thrilled that I made you happy with everything. It was fun searching the antique stores for the spoons and the can opener. The blue and yellow thingie is a holder for a personal straw, or chopsticks. I loved to inform our waitress that I didn't need a straw because I had my own, so posh.
I'd love to adopt you! The more the merrier!
