For the Love of Birds Swap Goodies...

I squealed when I received my box in the mail from the "For the Love of Birds" swap. My partner was Kimberly at Busy Being a Fabulous Mom. I have made a great new friend and here is what she sent me.
See how pretty it all looked. A couple of little wrapped goodies.....let's see what they are.
Here are all the cuties. First off a sweet card. I also received a wire bird tea light holder with sunflower scented candles (they smell wonderful!) , a beautiful egg ornament, a birdie cookie press, Martha Steward magazine and candy. Also, they sent Lexi some egg bubble gum....she grabbed it out before I could even get a picture of it.
Also, last but not least this initial magnet. It is covered in material and so cute. Thank you so much Kimberly for all the fun goodies. I will be putting them throughout my home in my decorations. Thank you so much Kimberly....I LOVE it all! I also want to thank Lori for hosting this fun swap....she did a great job.♥
Be sure to stop by Kimberly's to see what I sent her in the swap. Also, I will be gone with a friend shopping all day today. I'll get around to everyone tomorrow. Hope you all have a GREAT Monday.
