To Hannah from Denise

Allllll week, I had been counting down the days for my appointment today w/ Dolly and Denise for an up close and in person fall swap partay. I was soooo sad and low when my twins came down yesterday w/ fevers, green noses and what sounded like the croop. :( Thankfully, my good ole lil sis pulled through in a pinch and paid a visit to the event in my stead. Her return home w/ this festive, Fall bag was just the pick-me-up that a homebound Mama needed on this beautiful FALL day. Inside, each gift was adorably wrapped in ribbon w/ a tag describing the "letter."

Lovin' the candy corn tissue paper!

I LOVE this Fragile pumpkin filled w/ pumpkin candy corn!!!! I've been eyeing all the white pumpkin decor "out" as of late and NOW I have one for my very own collection!

and I have a feeling that A lot of The Help Tea is going to be enjoyed, well, A LOT! How cute is that? And it is Caramel Cake flavored! One sip and me an Aibileen are gonna be tellin' everybody on the street "You is smart. You is kind. You is important."  :)

Liquor...just kiddin...Lacquer for my twenty digits. It's even OPI and the flava is "I brake for manicures." As you can tell by my thumbkin, I DEF need to brake for a manicure STAT.

Lovely scent for your home which is a Yankee Candle wax melt contraption that I've been wanting to try! Me 'cited!
THANK YOU, DENISE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You did me good. I LOVE it all and I love you to pieces. Your creativity, wit and thoughtfulness brightened my day beyone measure. My only regret is I couldn't squeeze your neck and thank you today in person...both for my gift and for headin' up another FAB swap. You're the best. <3

HAPPY FALL, Ya'll!

Oh Goodie Goodie Gumdrop, I'm so glad you like it!

I had it in the back of the truck on the way to the Queen City today and when we got there, I realized that one of my sweet children had taken the headrest off one of the seats in the truck (for a better view of the video screen) and chucked into the back of the truck--landing on your gift. Grrrr!

Anyway, I love that little pumpkin--I got one for myself too. Same thing with the tea--love and drink it like crazy and think of one of my fav books!

Hope your sweet babies are feeling better HPS! It was a pleasure doing Fall Swap with you!

Farm Basket sweets, Farm Basket. They have the neatest gifts there--too bad it is out of the way of my house though? :(
