Secret Swap Goodies Arrived

What a great surprise for the first day of summer! When I saw it was from Dee Begg I couldn't wait to open it! I even made the dogs wait to go out. I have always loved her stuff and all her post this was as great as I expected all summertime themed. I love how the stars spell out USA, the watermelons are so unique and the 3 block signs I like how they can be stacked or used separately. I can't wait for the kitchen redo to get all my recent swaps or trades/wins in place. Right now the kitchen walls are a sponged Red it's going to what looks like white washed barn board wallpaper. Will take pictures Thanks Dee I Love them!


  1. Tam,
    What nice goodies. These will go perfect in your newly redone kitchen. Can't wait to see your room when it's finished.
    Country at heart

  2. Isn't Deb the best? Love her stuff! Glad the 'fireworks' got to you safely! Love the 50 cent find! Remember before you paint/stain to wipe it down with a nice clean, damp cloth. Nothing worse than trying to paint something just to have to do it all over again because the paint didn't adhere due to dust. Take pics so we can see!

  3. Tam,

    I am so glad that you like what I sent to you. I thought it would be fun to do a more summer themed swap package. It was great to get to know you a bit through reading your blog.

    The watermelon slices are based on a pattern from Patti of Raspberry Lane Primitives. She made them plant pokes but I thought bowl fillers would be better and they would fit in the envelope better. The stars started out differently than they are now, but I decided to paint them for a more patriotic look. And the blocks, well lemonade and watermelon are 2 of my summertime favorites.

    Have an awesome night.
