Mamarazzi's Favorite Things Swap

Look what I just received in the mail!





Lori at Basketball, Gymnastics and me sent me oodles of goodies, all as a part of Mamarazzi at Dandelion Wishes Favorite Things Swap.
Participating in this swap was so much fun. I chose some of my favorite items to send to Lori, and she did the same for me.
I was lucky enough to recieve an apothecary jar with sand and seashells from the beach near Lori's beach house in Myrtle Beach, SC. One of the shells was the most beautiful sand dollar I've ever seen because it is perfectly white. Lori told me that that shell was collected at Shacklefod Banks, a barrier island inhabited with wild animals and other sea animals. So cool.
I also recieved a copy of Southern Living magazine, a picture frame, a wonderful smelling candle in the cutest jar (shaped like a tub),
And, she even sent each of my children a small gift along with a cheesecake dessert mix we can make together. So nice of her.
And lastly, a brand new TWISTED SILVER bracelet.
The best part about the whole exchange is that I've found a great new blogger to visit, and I appreciate so much that she took the time to look around my site to see what my interests were and tailor her favorite things for me.
In enjoyed the swap so much in fact, that I want to have one of my own. I'm thinking a jewelry or book exchange would be fun. Any interest?
