Cheer Up Swap


Ok I joined Brandy over at "You Don't Know...." for her totally awesome Cheer Up Swap. And I had the pleasure of getting to know someone new whom I now consider a bloggy friend, Beth at "Living A Goddess Life". Even though on paper you would think we have absolutely nothing in common...we are kindred spirits. And she outdid herself with the goodies she sent me....take a look:


I just love opening a box and getting a first look...the excitement builds from there...


Beth even sent treasures for the cats!!! Except the kids were trying to take off with these before the picture...and look at the notes, she sent a note for each item...I LOVE THAT!!

A beautiful journal, lavender soap, and bubbles the kids could use inside...and they did 2 seconds after this was taken, LOL!

A Fleur-de-lis planter....y'all know I LOVE my Fleur-De-Lis...and amazing smelling body lotion, a very colorful bookmark or Shea says bracelet for her...and Burt's Bees lips in pomegranate!!

A Glow Bracelet that I love...and an exquisite box, I wish the picture was better...but look in the box...coffee cup earrings just for me!!!!! Does this girl know me or what!!! And notice the beads she also sent throughout the package....

And a beautiful hand painted mega-cup and plate that she had picked up in California...the colors are perfection...so bright and colorful...love it!

And to go in that mega-cup.......VIVA by Starbucks...individual coffees caramel flavored...woohoo!!!!!!!

Thank you Beth so much for everything you sent me!!! And I'm so glad I got to meet you and get to know you!!

People this is what a swap is all about...meeting new people and sometimes if you're lucky...you meet someone whom you are excited to call a friend....and thanks Brandy for hosting a great swap!

Yay! I'm so glad you liked all the goodies! :D

(and, yeah, the colorful knotted thread thing was intended as a bracelet, but use it however you like! *grin*)
