My Valentine Swap gift has arrived!

Belle at Life of a Southern Belle organized a Valentine Swap a few weeks ago. She put all of the participants names in a basket and pulled pairs of names for swap partners. We also had a list to fill out to assist with gift purchases. My partner is Rachel at Livin and Loving, and just look at all the gifts she sent!

The box has the cutest little monkeys and hearts on it.

Wow, the box was filled with gifts! A new Country Living magazine, a magnetic memo pad, a little red glass heart shaped candle holder, wild current scented sachets. a sweet little canvas picture with a flower & enjoy on it, a package with 8 sheets of scrapbook paper and a mini scrapbook kit.

Another peek at all the treasures with a candle lit.

Thank you Rachel! You've been an awesome swap partner!

Enjoy!

Diane

Diane, What a lovely present. I'd have loved to participate but I didn't trust myself to get a package mailed in time, I am notoriously slow about such things!
I want details on the cupcakes...what flavor did you get? Have you tried one yet? I love The Cheesecake Factory too. One of my fav things there is their Chicken Romano and I always get the spinach dip with it and this may sound weird but I put the dip ON my chicken! Yum!!!

Bridget said...

Aww I'm sorry your cupcakes got smoosched. I actually like the vanilla but I agree it is pretty sweet. THe coconut one is killer and I really liked the carrot too. The chocolate velvet (the one that looks like the vanilla with sprinkles) is probably more to your taste since you didn't like the vanilla.
