I Hit The Jackpot BIG TIME...

Some of us gals in the group To Dwell In Primitive Thymes had an Easter/Spring Swap.


I was lucky enough to have Carol Roll of Nostalgic Folk Art as my swap partner! Not only is this gal an extremely talented artist, she is just as sweet and I'm blessed to have her as a dear friend.


Okay are ya ready????!!!




Look at all this WONDERFUL stuff!!!!! I was screamin' like a lil' girl!! (Some of you may have heard me)



That vintage salt bag is awesome! (Even my hubs said "That's cool!") Vintage sheet music of the Easter Parade, a sweet knitted dollie skirt and hat in my three favorite colors of red white and blue, the children's book "Our Country's Flag, a delicious Lindt chocolate bar (okay, this won't last long) and Godiva chocolate creme flavored coffee (h*ll I didn't even know they made such I thing, I can't wait to try some!!!), some rusty springs perfect for make-dos, a bottle of Burt's Bees Body Lotion that smells absolutely heavenly and I can't wait to apply it to my lizard skin, 3 bunny cookie cutters, a box of apple dumpling doggie treats for my girls, a wonderful smellin' candle but what's even better it has a lil' battery operated flame on top of it!! (How cute!) Then there is those precious vintage flash cards that spell out my nickname!!!!!Oh how that made me smile!!!! Since we both are owners and lovers of Boston Terriers, she tucked in a newspaper article about a Boston Terrier who saved her owner from an attempted rape (by bitin' him) in her area of Florida. Yet another reason to love this wonderful breed!


FINALLY THERE WAS THIS BEAUTIFUL PIECE...



Isn't she gorgeous?????!!!!!! Folks, you have no idea how much this angel has touched my heart!!!! Carol captured the true beauty of nature and faith. Two things very near and dear to my heart. I can't express how much I love her!


I know Carol doesn't have a blog but I hope she's readin' this...
I am so touched by the thought and love you put into each item. Thank you darlin'!
