Haven Swap

Monica and Carrie hosted another swap: Haven. I love the theme of this swap! Isn't making our home a haven what we all strive for? I know I do.

Ginger at One Day at a Time was my partner in this swap. Here is a picture of my goodies.

I received:

Three pot holders. My pot holder are well worn and very stained. I had them listed on my Christmas wish list. Ginger must have been peeking into my kitchen.

A cute notepad. It says "May your glory be over all the Earth. Psalm 57:5. It came with a pen that is my new favorite.

Two postcards from the area where Ginger lives. I thought this was a wonderful touch. I will have to remember to do that for the next swap.

A package of tea. Not any tea, but China Green Tea. Everytime I drink green tea it takes me right back to my time in China.

A wonderful candle holder along with a package of votive candles. The scent is makes my home smell wonderful!

There was also a cute little basket. I can't wait to find the perfect use for my new basket.

This is what I sent to Ginger:

Three matching picture frames.
A candle in a canning jar. I believe the scent was Apple Pie.
I made four fabric balls. I really hope they match the colors in her decor.
A recipe card holder that says "Home Sweet Home." Along with some recipe cards I printed that say "With love from Ginger's kitchen."
A 2009 pocket calendar.
Two dish towels. I added some gingham fabric and some rickrack to add a little spice.

I had so much fun putting this package together. I loved everything in my package and hope that Ginger enjoyed hers also.

A huge thanks to Monica and Carrie for another wonderful swap!
