Awesome Swap Goodies – Plus Fall Decorating!! *PHP

A Primitive Place ~Tammy

Hello Everyone.

Warning:

This is a PHP.

(*Picture Heavy Post!)

Heehee!

Well, yesterday felt like Christmas to me!!!

I got Two amazing swap goody packages in the mail.

The 1st one was from Robin @ The Primitive Hutch blog.

She was my partner in Amy's recent doll swap.

WOWSERS!

Look at all these amazing goodies she sent…

Sweet Robin sent me a wonderful large prim black doll holding a pumpkin.

Plus she sent me an oh so cute sewing doll!!

A prim witch pillow, a small pumpkin, an adorable witches shoe peg hanger, a Jack O’ Lantern wearing a witches hat.

Wait… There is still MORE!!!

A wonderful wooden sign, a note pad and pencil, a pretty dish cloth, and a sweet card.

Thank you so much, Robin, for all my new goodies.

Here is where I have some of them displayed.

I have my large prim baby sitting next to my fireplace.

Thank you again, Robin, for all my wonderful goodies!

And thank you Amy for hosting such a fun swap!!

That was only one of the packages I got in yesterday.

Still one more to show off.

The next one came from One of my oldest and dearest prim pals.

(Oldest as in how long we have known each other… not her age!! LOL!!)

My sweetheart Dawn.

Dawn doesn't currently have a blog, even though I really, really, wish she would open one!! :)

Maybe one day!!

Now check out the Amazing goodies my wonderful friend sent me.

A Primitive Place ~Tammy

Yes, you are seeing correctly...

That is an antique coverlet!!!

LOVE IT!!

A Primitive Place ~Tammy

 

When we first decided to swap she was suppose to send me only the coverlet, but my dear friend surprised me with bonus goodies too!!!

*She also sent a lot of grubby candles but I forgot to put them in the group photo above.  I have them displayed in a soap dish in my Kitchen and simply forgot to go get them for the photo.

Sorry. :(

I was also surprised with a wonderful sheep.

WooHoo! I love sheep.

And a cute wooden sign and wonderful card.

Look at this neat card!

I’m considering framing it.

A Primitive Place ~Tammy

 

Here is where I have my goodies displayed.

I have put the coverlet on my bed.

I am wanting to stagger old coverlets and quilts on my bed.

Now thanks to Dawn, I have one more!!

I have put my sheep in the dining room for now.

But I am going to do some tweaking and find another spot for him.

He doesn't show up good enough here.

The shelf hides his little legs.

And last but certainly not least…

I put the wooden sign in my sewing room for wonderful inspiration.

Doesn’t look great in front of the red basket!

BIG HUGE HUG TO YOU, DAWN!!!

THANK YOU SOOOOOOOO MUCH!!!

I love everything.

I love decorating for Fall.

Oh heck, I love decorating Period. ;) Heehee!

But one thing that I noticed today and I absolutely LOVE…

So many of my decorations were handmade by my blogging buddies.

How wonderful it is to have their creations throughout my home.

Everywhere I look I am reminded of them.

A Primitive Place ~Tammy

I've also been decorating my porch this week.

Not quite finished yet.

Hopefully I will get to show it off soon.

It has rained All Day here in Southern IL.

I wasn't able to get outside and get anything done today.

Oh well, there is always tomorrow.

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit!

Until next time….

Take Care and Blessings to you All!

Your decorating is truly an inspiration to me. My spirit is willing but flesh is weak. I'm using all my strength and most of my time for getting my classroom going right now. Hopefully I can sneak in some decorating over the weekend. I'll be looking back at your post pictures for ideas, that's for sure!
Thanks for sharing. :)

Robin at The Primitive Hutch said...

Hi Tammy
Thank-You so much for posting!
I'm really glad you liked all your goodies and we were swap partners!
Oh my gosh those goodies you got from Dawn are awesome ~ love that coverlet!
I am so jealous ~ your fall decorations are all so nicely displayed. I haven't had time to do much. I did happen to see you have sunflower heads displayed ~ is there anything special you have to do to them before bringing them inside???
Prim Blessings
Robin

Tammy ~ A Primitive Place said...

Robin,

No I didnt do anything special to them.

Just hung them upside down till they dried, cut them off and put them out for display.

These are from last year and they are still okay.

Susan said...

Hi, Tammy, what a wonderful swap you received. The coverlet, oh my, I can't believe how fortunate you are to receive such a beauty.
The House tour was fabulous, every time I scroll through your photo tours I think I'm looking at a prim magazine shoot. You have a flair for putting things together, the house looks lovely.
Wow, it's almost time for Rin's giveaway.
Warm Regards,
Susan B., Western MA
