Fall Findings Swap...

 Our first swap with the Bloggerette Society.... find and decorate a cigar box and fill it with items that your swap partner would like.   I read my swap partners blog and found out among other things that she likes to sew, and collects teddy bears.   It was great fun to gather things to fill her box.
   I'm showing the one I sent to her because she was too sick to do one for me... Hope she is feeling better soon..I know it's no fun to be sick.  You can find a linky to the other participants at
Karen's place, Some Days Are Diamonds this evening or tomorrow. Hope you will go see what everyone received!
I also signed up for the 25 Days of Christmas matchbook swap and this is
what I sent as a hostess gift ... I made it on a large match box.
Thank you so much for stopping by, I do appreciate your comments and visits and ya'll come back please.

I don't know what I like more: The wonderful items you picked or that fact that you took so much time to know what she would like. It's just really special!

I'm sorry that your swap partner is sick, but this wonderful treat must have cheered her up quite a bit. It looks wonderful!

So sorry your partner was sick but your box should have cheered her up. I collect teddy bears too and this would have made me happy. I participated too but am not nearly as creative as all of you other talented bloggers that joined in. It was lots of fun though.

Hi Sweetie! Francie, thank you so much for continuing to visit me and leaving comments that warm my heart. I hope you're feeling as blessed these days as you are making me feel.

Your box of goodies is wonderful. I know someone must be very happy. I do hope you get yours soon too. I really want to host a swap of my own one day and would love you to join in.

Have a fun Halloween night. Love....Tracy :)

I am sure that your partner enjoyed the great box you sent to her. I had a great time with this swap. It was only the 2nd time I have done something like this and it has been so fun looking at all of the boxes created and sent.
