I arrived home from work today to find a box from my Sweet & Sinister swap partner, Carrie, sitting on the front porch. It is always such a treat to get a surprise in the mail and somehow getting something from someone you have never met adds to the excitement. You have no idea what they will come up with. Well, Carrie's swap goodies were all very sweet and not at all sinister! The item you see above is a beautiful handmade journal that Carrie sells in her etsy shop. It is absolutely lovely and I can't wait to use it! It has a fall theme and she used a lovely old vintage button for a closure.
But there was more! A pretty white ceramic pumpkin, a luscious smelling cinnamon ornament that is shaped like autumn leaves and acorns, an apple scented air freshener and some cute halloween jingle bells:>)
Some yummy looking dip mixes and flavored coffees! I am having a dinner party this weekend with out of town friends and I will be trying some of these!
Some "Sweet" chocolates that I think Carrie made herself? There were more but Earl & I decided we needed to sample them immediately! I LOVE Chocolate!
And last, but not least, an adorable halloween themed bracelet made with handmade lampwick beads and silver! This is amazing! How sweet and generous! Thank you so much Carrie! Carrie doesn't have a blog yet, but I hope when she does she will send me a link. What a fun swap:>) When I hear from Carrie that she got her package I will show you what I sent her!
