You've got Mail!

Isn't it a nice feeling when a package
arrives with your name on it! And
you know by the senders name it's
something really special! I did a swap
with Lori of
I sent her a pink safety pin basket and
she sent me this so sweet confection...a
birdhouse and bird to live in it. I love pink
but lately I love aqua a little more so that
is the color I asked her to use with yellow.
It's perfect...I know! Precisely cut wallpaper and
the most sweet lace trims to the peaks
with a special find at the top. I love it Lori
and it is going in my redecorated , aqua,
pink and yellow dining room......ok, when I
get it redecorated. Swaps are fun when they end
this happily.
