Sisterhood of the Traveling Prim Swap Box Blog Swap & Other Goodies!

I recently participated in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Prim Swap Box Blog Swap (I can't even say that once LET ALONE three times fast!) hostessed by Deb at Crow's Creek Primitives.....

Deb started the box off by putting five items inside, and sending it to Wendy at Ravenwood Whimzies.
Wendy chose what she wanted from the box, replaced the items she took with others, and sent the box on to Tam at A Primitive Place.
Tam did likewise, and then the box came to me....

I would've loved to have kept EVERYTHING.....but didn't think it fair that the next person in line would only have my stuff to choose carefully chose these:

A sweet little doll made by Tammy:

And a wall box also made by Tammy:
(Complete with fillings!!)

And, lastly, this little nest with eggs from Deb:

The Sisterhood box is now on its way to Mary at Marmmies, Mammy's & More.
Hope she finds something to love in that box!!


And, on top of THAT fun, I got this in the mail today:

Traci from York Mountain Primitives had an awesome "Name-That-Bear" giveaway a while back.  She kept the fun going for an entire month or more by continuing to draw names from the entries each week.  And I was lucky enough to have her draw my name this past week and won this wonderful penny pillow made by Traci....I love this, Traci! (Sorry - not the best photo....the colors are truly richer in person.)
Traci also sent me some bird and butterfly wildflower seed mix  :o) .....

Can't wait to see what comes up with that!!!  I LOVE flowers - and wildflowers even more so!!
Thank you SO MUCH Traci!!! You're a sweetie and then some!!

Smiles & Hugs, Robin
