Cindy at Rick Rack and Gingham decided to put together the most fun swap - Kitchen Goodies.
She put it together as a kind of round robin, so the person I received goodies from received hers from someone else and then I sent mine to another person.
Well I got my lovely box from Denise over at Bloomin' at Beagle Run Cottage and it was filled with the most scrumptious goodies. (Apparently scrumptious is my word of the day because I've used it in several comments I've left on others blogs today.)
Well, see for yourself.......
rip - tear - rip
Ooooh! How pretty is that!
Love that bowl - always need little bowls like that around.
Look at these cute tags! Can you see the notecards too? Perfect for thank you notes after a dinner party - which one day we will have again.
Cute cherry recipe cards!
Do you see the dishtowel? So adorable for all the grillin' we'll be doing this summer.
And I have to admit - the plates are my very favorite. I have looked at getting these exact plates MANY, MANY, MANY times and I just never have. I adore them. Thank you!
Now let's see how they look (or at least some of them) all settled in.
Oh lookie - there's the plates....
How sweet is that saucer with a little vintage creamer sitting on it.
Gratuitous plate closeup.
Won't you join me for lunch?
Had to show the blooms from my picket fence garden and my new cutting garden.
Grew those Cosmos and Cornflowers from seed! Yes I did!
Heavenly smelling David Austin Rose.
And would you like some delicious baby squash for lunch? Yep! I grew those too in my new kitchen garden. Love how I can just step out the kitchen door to check the progress and pick a fresh crop.
Thank you so much for dropping in for a little visit. Lunch will be served soon. We're having roasted baby squash, Greek pasta salad, and grilled chicken. I can offer you sparkling limeade or fresh brewed ginger peach iced tea.
And thank you Denise and Cindy for such a fun swap!
