own unique spirit"
~ Gabrielle Roth
participated in the Summer Swap
hosted by the beautiful Amanda
of SweetPotatoClaire. I've shown
you what I made and now I would
love to share with you what I
received in the mail this week.
My gifts were made by the beautiful
Summer who blog's at Summerplayshouse.
I am going to be honest with you,
as I pulled each item out and then read
her note the tears started falling. Oh my
goodness, everything is amazing. Then I read
her post this morning and laughed out loud.
It's fun to see yourself from someone else
view and I learned a few things about myself
that I didn't know ;)
There is lemon salt [made from her trees]
that smells amazing.
Hazelnut granola that tastes divine and I'm
so thankful she included the recipe so I
can continue to enjoy this treat for years
A coaster and a hot pad that fit right in
to my kitchen.
Rocks from a California beach. [Most people
don't know, but I was born in Santa Ana, CA.]
A watercolor painting she did of a favorite quote,
along with purple yarn and my fig tree. It is now
matted, framed and hanging in my kitchen.
And do you remember the patch I ask Cory to
make for Emerson? Well, Summer made a
peg doll of Emerson wearing that shirt!!!
[Here come the tears again. ]
Summer, I do not have the words to express
just how deeply you have touched me, thank
Not long ago I mentioned wanting
to swap post cards and had several
lovely souls who said they did too.
My email address is....

I have a stack of postcards, send me
an address and I'll send you a little
snail mail love.
Enjoy a beautiful weekend!
