Day 20 - 1 Sweet Swap

See the button?  I haven't forgotten this month's topic. I do, however, have to tell you something totally awesome...

I signed up for a Fall Blog Swap over on Mia's blog.  For those who don't know what a blog swap is, this was my first one and I'm so happy to share it with you!  

I was paired with Jenn, of Party Of One, and she's great. I really enjoyed stalking her blog for clues, chatting via email so, when I shipped my package, I knew I nailed it.

I just love getting packages.  I really do.  I love packages almost as much as I love nice notes.  Something about the genuine labor of putting a pen to paper makes me appreciate notes even more here recently.  O and Jenn wrote a very nice note:

Thanks, Jenn!

Now, onto my swag... Check it out:

Yes, that is 1 candy corn in my hand... I don't remember the box or how many servings were in the box... It's all a blur.  If you can't tell, the theme for the swap was fall(weather). I got fabulous lip glosses to keep my lips hydrated, candy corn (my fave fall candy), scrapbooking stickers for crafts, fall-themed note cards and my FAVE:

A yummy scented candle.  I love everything.

I hope you liked your package, Jenn!

Want in on the fun next time?  I'll be sure to let all of my sweet islanders know if I hear of blog swaps in the future.  Maybe one day I'll feel fancy enough to host one... Aww shucks, who host what? Little ol' me?

*Inner diva stomps onto the stage*

You heard it. The island shall be fancy enough to do something awesome one day!

Cheers to dreaming big!



  1. YAY! So glad you loved it :) LOVE that picture of you sniffing the candle! Super cute :)

  2. It looks like you got a great box! Those stickers are so adorable! Thanks for joining in on the swap :)

  3. I am soooo happy you signed up for the swap. :) Looks like you got some great loot there. You're right, there's nothing like getting a hand-written note and some lovely goodies in the mail. Happy Fall, Tabs! xo


Goodwill Finds: The Magnolia Wreath

Happy Friday, Islanders. I wanted to share a thrifty find from a while back.  Ugh, I love my local Goodwill Outlet.  Oh, and yes, you saw ...
