Sweet Tweet Swap

Grandbaby #9 is HERE!
Jesse weighed 8lbs. 2 oz
Both baby and Momma are doing Great!

I participated in Ele's Sweet Tweet Swap and today everyone is posting their swap goodies. Stop by Ele's blog to see all of the participants and what they made.
I had a wonderful partner, Shirl. Here's the beautiful things that Shirl made for me.
She is so talented!!
You'll love Ele's blog and Shirl's too if you've never visited them before!

Shirl made this beautiful nest.
It has flower petals, feathers, ribbon, glittery eggs and other special touches.
It is so pretty!!

Next is this pretty card and a bonnet sachet. Shirl makes these ribbon roses
and she made some of my stuff in yellow which is my favorite color!
The detail in her work is amazing!!
(She has similar items for sale in her Etsy shop)

This beautiful cone is actually hanging in my china cabinet
because of all of the little fingers around my house.
It is so pretty!!

here's a close up view.

and if the swap package couldn't get any sweeter
here is some yummy white chocolates.
I didn't even share these with the kids.
I felt a little guilty......but the guilt left me in a hurry!

Thanks Ele for a fun swap and Shirl for such a gorgeous swap package!!
It was fun to make new friends!

Tomorrow I am going to post the cutest little Annie doll that I received from Valerie. I'm so frustrated, I mailed her package priority on Monday morning and she still hasn't received it. Come on Mr. Mailman!! I can't wait to see if Valerie likes the doll!!!

Wasn't this a fun swap? You were lucky to get Shirl, she is such a creative Whirl Wind! (My nickname for her is Shirl the Whirl) as she has so much energy!

Everything you two exchanged is just beautiful!

Sherry, Thanks for joining this swap and for posting. Sometimes, you deserve to have something just for yourself and I think the Lindt candies were perfect! Ha!

I forgot to say congrats on the new baby. That is so exciting. And guess what? We just got home (midnight) and guess what was at my door? You guessed it! On my goodness! I am so ashamed of my little Annie. Thank you so much. Yours is wonderful. Of course she is mine now! You did a great job. I will be blogging about it soon. Thank you again. She is precious!

My DIL made this up using the pictures of my 5 oldest boys. So funny!
