The love of loot!
Welcome to the next installment of ABC Monday with the Accidental Knitter. I have noticed everyone is writing about such wonderful things, like love and lace, and learning. I love those things too ok? But I just HAVE to share this you.
On Friday I received my Purse Swap Package from New England and MAN OH MAN was I spoiled like crazy! Now don’t get me wrong, the point of swaps is to make someone else’s day, spoil them like crazy etc etc. Which I try to do to the fullest, every time, no excuses. And I have been so privileged because every package in return has been phenomenal.
I mean look at it all! And it didn’t come in that big of a box, it was stuffed! Everything Tammy chose for me is PERFECT. She read me like a book. Everytime I took something new out of the box I squealed with delight. And then I would discover something special about it and squeal even more!
Here are the totes (as the main part of the swap). One is lovely oatmeal grocery tote (on the right) with hints of purple and pinks, so pretty. I can’t wait to fill it with groceries and shopping goodies. The one on the left is a STUNNER of a tote. It is cabled. Crocheted cabled. I am so in love the with the darn thing it’s ridiculous. I have asked Tammy where the pattern comes from hopefully she gives up the goods.
Other notables in the box were a kitty play cube for Cally (which she LOVES, hopefully I can snap a photo or 2 to share), a beautiful orangey mobius cowl, LOTS of Hello Kitty (yahoo!), and I mean lots, some yarn, coffee, scrapbooking stuff. Yup, spoiled like crazy. I want to say THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to Tammy, my spectacular swapner for being the best swapner I have had yet, with the wonderful email communication, kind words and amazing packages, she really set the bar high. And makes me want to send better packages. If you have time, check out her blog here.
So there is my ABCs for the week, see you on Wednesday, XO.
