Halloween Swap!!



My Halloween Swap partner Mary Anne sent me these lovely goodies. She couldn't have known that today was the perfect day for them to arrive! We just found out that we need a new boiler/heating system at a cost of $3200. And we need it today! And just two days ago, Hubs truck starter quit working and we discovered that my car needed two new tires, pronto, for safety!

It was just the most cheerful thing that could have happened to me after that bit of bad news. The package contained candles, a witch wind sock, a light up pen, some pumpkin faced candle holders, wonderful stickers I can use in my scrapbooking (they will be an added bonus near the pictures I have taken of the items!), a Halloween wall decoration, and an adorable little bear wearing a witch hat, a lovely little pumpkin decoration, and some really cute little stickers that she had adorned the package with. It all came wrapped in orange and black tissue paper with the pumpkin stickers attached. And enclosed was a nice little note from my newest friend. Very lovely, indeed. Thank you so much, Mary Anne, and keep your eyes peeled for your Halloween package!

Oh Martie my dear friend, I am so sorry you are having such a bad time. It just isn't fair you get hit with all that at once. Hope things get worked out okay for you.

This is why swap packages are so wonderful...For some reason they always seem to come the very day you need them. That one was prepared with great thought. You deserve it. Enjoy.

Hugs,
Connie
