I SHOULD INVITE THE MAIL PERSON IN FOR COFFEE

I really should invite my mail delivery person in for coffee. I feel I should get to know this person for he/she is stopping by a lot lately to bring me all of these gifts.
If you follow my blog you know how much I love a good swap!!
These are all swap gifts from some amazing swap buddies.
This tin swap was inspired by Wendy over at Blissangles
This tin is from Lorraine, you can visit her here.
I do believe Lorraine visited my blog, she created this tin with all the things I love. Birds, wildlife and burlap.
I love this holiday tin, thanks Lorraine.
This is the holiday tin I created for Lorraine.
This is a stocking swap, this swap was inspired by Cerri at Littlepinkstudio
I received this beautiful stocking filled to the brim from Stevie-Lynn, you can visit her here.
Stevie-Lynn made the stocking herself, way more than I wanted to take on. It was filled to the brim with vintage goodies. I love these pins she made. I have them displayed in a vintage bird cage. Thanks Stevie-Lynn.
You can see the holiday stocking I created for Stevie-Lynn here.
A button ornament swap inspired by Laurie at Buttonfloozies
This swap had three different swap buddies.
This heart button ornament is from Lorraine, you can visit Lorraine here.
The piece of vintage doily and some of the buttons are from Lorraine's grandmother.
Thanks Lorraine.
These button ornaments are from Debbie at Mosiacmagpie, you can visit Debbie here.
These are beautifully hand sewn. Thanks Debbie, my button floozie friend!!
This button ornament is from Laura. Laura does not have a blog.
I love all of the green buttons and the special gold ones, too.
Thanks Laura.
You can see the button ornaments I sent to these three swap ladies here.
This swap was inspired by the Bloggerette Sorority you can visit this site here.
My swap partner was Cathee, you can visit Cathee at Artandsoul.
She sent along this beautiful gold glitter butterfly.
This beautiful ornament made with sheet music. This is stunning.
Cathee and I are going to do a personal swap together. We have decided to make a bird/nature altered art/collage book and will be swapping the end of January. I will look forward to this.
Thanks Cathee
You can see the items I created for Cathee here.
I sure do love a good swap ;)
Thanks for stopping by.

Double flight bird cage is prefect for birds like Amazons, cockatoos, or macaws. The bar spacing of the cage should be 1 1/4 inches or more.
