Goody Goody Gumdrops!

I have been an awful blogging friend because I haven't posted any of the sweet things I've received from fellow bloggers!

I participated in a summer swap at Sweet Tea Diaries and was paired with Kate at Nautical by Nature. I also won a giveaway at Life with Lulu and Pete.

First up, the great package I received from Kate during the summer swap:

The box was full of nautical goodness!

  • A whale dip bowl & matching whale spreader
  • Whale & sailboat table cloth weights
  • Too pretty to use "beachy", I wish the Atlantic was that shade of blue!
  • Too pretty to use starfish plates done in a mosaic theme - hmmm...could this be inspiration for my kitchen table?!
  • A little blue tin bucket for catching things
  • A whale brag book
  • An embroidered key fob with a sailboat & lighthouse - cute!
  • Yummy handmade soap from her travels overseas
  • And, sidewalk chalk for my kidlets!

Thank you, really spoiled me!

Next, I won the first of two follower giveaways over at Life with Lulu and Pete (head over there now because the 2nd follower giveaway is going on right now!).

I was quite surprised & oh, so happy when I found out I won. The package was sitting on my doorstep when we returned from our beach trip over the 4th of July holiday weekend. When I opened the box, this is what I found:

  • A Vera Bradley Tic Tac tote in Raspberry Fizz - so bright, so colorful...I love it!
  • A note cube made out of handmade paper
  • Baking goodies - pretty cupcake liners and floral picks - I'll use these when Malia gets home because she's gonna love them!
  • A pretty key chain (forgive me but I don't remember what the quote says...I'll edit this post later!)
  • R.I.C.H. {Relax, it's cocktail hour!} cocktail napkins
  • Yummy smellin' lotion from Bath & Body Works - Butterfly Flower
  • Pretty note cards

Thank you, B!! You're awesome!

It's always fun to receive something in the mail that isn't a bill!!

Can you tell that my kitchen counter is my #1 place of choice to photograph things?!
