My Fall Swap Goodies From Char

Hi Everyone and Happy Halloween Weekend!

I took part in a Fall Swap hosted by Char.

My partner for the swap was Char herself!!

Here are the wonderful Swap Goodies she sent me.


A wonderful wool pumpkin pillow.


Three bags full of amazingly scented tarts!!

One of the bags I opened.

But check out how fabulously she had these packaged.


An adorable Pumpkin Carving Contest Stitchery.


Now check out this!!

It is a small enamel pan, which she bent the handle upward to form this wonderfully prim candle holder.

She even included the hook for hanging it.


I decided to display the pumpkin she sent me in it.

Doesn't it look so cute in there!!


What a wonderful idea, Char!

I would have never thought to do this.


I love this prim pantry cake with tea light in the center.


I have it displayed in my dining room cupboard.



She also sent me this wonderful penny rug.

Im still looking for the perfect spot for it.

Right now, I have it in my foyer, but I think I may tweak the display some.


And last but certainly not least, she primmed me up this adorable wooden bench.

I am using it as a foot stool in my living room.

At first I had it in front of the smaller wooden chair.




But then I decided to move it to the front of the larger, wing back, chair.

Which do you think looks best…

In front of the wooden chair or the wing back chair??


Thank you so much Char for the wonderful fall goodies you sent me!!

I loved everything!!!

I want to thank everyone for their prayers and kind words on my worries about Kelsey.

I wanted to let you know that she arrived around 10:30pm last night.

Tried but safe and sound.

They headed out to the rally and to do some sight seeing this morning.

She is going to be heading back home tomorrow morning.

So please keep those protection prayers a comin’! :)

I want her to enjoy herself but I also cant wait for her to be back home where she belongs!! ;)


Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone.

Char certainly made you a lot of beautiful things and great prim gifts to decorate with. I usually put my benches to the side, other wise we would trip over them, lol. I think to the side of either chair with a prim doll, would be a nice display.

I love all you prim swap goodies!!! You enjoy!!!! And I know how you feel worrying about your daughter. Once my son hitchhiked to the Myrtle Beach, left me a message on the answering machine, and he hiked the Applachian Trail and I wouldn't hear from him for weeks. My daughter and one of her friends drove by themselves to NYC when she was just out of HS. Is it any wonder I have to color my hair, sure did alot of praying.
Hugs, and I know your daughter will be fine.

Tam, I love ALL the wonderful goodies you got from Char and the goodies you sent where where fabulous, you both out did yourself.

I would LOVE to have you as a swap parnter anytime, I see we like the same things. I loved where you place your goodies and I really loved the black pan and with the hook,and how you displayed it!!!

I will be praying for a safe return for your daughter and don't forget Bret and you raised your children with good values as a Mom my self I understand you can't say don't worry because we as parents do. Please let us all know when she gets back home safe and sound. Have a great Halloween with your family and I am going to do the same with my Hubby and our sons because the next day is the surgery YUCK!!!

If I don't post on your blog for a week or so it's because I am resting and getting better. I will get back on as soon as I can!
Big Prim Hugs Friend,
P.S. And DON'T worry she will be home in no time! xo

Oh I love the penny rug and the prim candle in the pantry cake and the...well really everything you received I love! The little bench I think looks good in front of the wood chair...just my preference.

Hope your daughter has a wonderful trip and stays safely and hurries back so her momma can stop worrying. You do know that worrying causes wrinkles, right? And you are much too young to have wrinkles! So hurry home young one...your momma needs you there safe and sound.

Oh, and I did take a peek at what you sent Char, well you can be my swap partner all that you sent her. Wow!

What a nice Halloween Treat that all is- Congratulations! I have one of those old black pans in my cellar doing absolutely nothing at all. I will be digging it out and making a candle holder like that! Love it!


Deb Riddell said...

Wow, what wonderful items Tammy! I think I like the little stool in front of the wood chair the best but it looks fabulous both places! Your items you sent to Char are wonderful as well, you are both very lucky gals! So glad your daughter is safe & sound and I am sure she will make it home just fine. Keeping her in my thoughts to make sure! Thanks for sharing your wonderful goodies and Happy Halloween! Deb
