I participated in 2 swaps this month, what fun. The first was a handmade Valentines Day Card swap. Monica of Lick the Bowl Good and Christina of Dinner at Christina's and I swapped cards. It was so much fun to make homemade cards and wait for homemade cards in the mail. Am I the only one who loves to get real mail anymore? One of the cards came on my sons birthday and he was certain it was for him. HA! Poor kid. Well he got plenty of his own cards in the mail.
MamaRoots, a beautiful and inspiring blog out of Missouri. My partner was actually Chris who writes MamaRoots. We had to exchange a vintage marble, vintage hankie and a vintage postcard. The marble I sent came from my garden, I find quite a few out there for some reason. The hankie was hard to find but I finally found one. Low and behold the postcard was from a stash I found when cleaning and organizing my house. Chris sent me a fantastic vintage marble from the Elias marble factory in Germany, a gorgeous green hankie and a lovely postcard which was mailed 101 years ago, ON MY HUSBAND'S BIRTHDAY! How cool is that? All in all I would say this was great swap although I think I should have looked harder for a better postcard, sorry Chris.
Here is a shot of the Texas Cake Brownie thingy from yesterday. Yum.
Me in San Francisco in Chinatown eating DimSum, can't wait to go back in October!
Finally the long weekend is over, not that I wanted it to be over just that it was long, 2 birthdays, 1 big party, Valentines Day and a Fundraiser dinner tonight for the Charter School. I wore pantyhose tonight, enough said.
Peace and Love,
