My swap with Amy

Hi all! Hope you are having a great start to the week! It is hot and humid around this area and I know some of you are going through the same thing. So stay hydrated everyone if you are outside!

I'm late in posting this...sorry Amy!!! But that sweet girl and I did a swap and the items she gave me are just fantabulous!
All the pineapple things she made herself. There is a real dried pineapple (Amy said she is never going to do, a fabric pineapple and beewax pineapples. These smell so good!! I noticed that she has them posted on her blog today and is selling them, be sure to go visit, they are great!!! There is also a very cute little wooden bucket and also an awesome Americana picture.


And then THIS!!! I so love this, I have wanted an item of Karen's for a long time now and I finally have one!! I was so excited over this!! It's a darling little prim bag. I'm not sure if I want to use it!


And yes of course I can't forget to mention the cracker box. I forgot to take a picture of it, thanks girl! Love ya!!

Has anyone heard from Sue over at Oodlekadoodle Primitives?? I'm worried about her, she hasn't posted now in over 4 weeks.

Ok, that's it for me! Have a great week everyone!! And thanks again so very much Amy!!

Hi Brenda~

Wonderful goodies from Amy. Love the dried pineapple.

Have a wonderful day~Becky


Love that bag, it is great. Amy sent you some really nice things. I have never seen a dried pineapple before, that will be a great conversation piece. Hope you a great week.

Hi Brenda:) Excellent dried pineapple... love it!
I went to Sue's ebay store the other day and it was open. I sure hope she's okay. She is a wonderful gal. Let us know if you hear anything.

Hello Brenda!
Awesome goodies from Amy-especially the pineapple. I'm going to have to figure out how to dry a real one! Been wanting some pineapple things for some time. Just can't find em' around here.
Your willow bag turned out great. Hope you are staying cool. It's a lovely 57 this morning, windows are open, birds are chirping and it's great!
Take care,

Felicia said...

Luv all your goodies Brenda, especially that bag, it's very cute.
Stay cool.

Hi Brenda, You were spoiled with such wonderful goodies. Too send a dried pineapple, girl, you have been blessed by a wonderful friend. I read the tutorial on drying one of those, had bought my pineapple and decided to eat it instead. Sounded really time consuming. I have been concerned about Sue also. Please post if you hear from her. Have a great day.
