I thought that title might get your attention. Two of our favorite things in one post....heehee! Look what Daniel found today when he went to the mailbox. He had a rough time hauling the package to the house as it was bigger than him but were we excited to see it.

Sorry....Image has been removed of envelope.

I joined in on the fun with a dishtowel swap that was sponsored by Kendra of The Stone House Primitives This was my first swap and I was so excited.
Our swap partner was to be kept a secret until our package arrived and so I just found out that Kendra had my name. Here are the special goodies that came in my package....

she made me an awesome dishtowel that includes all of my favorites...the color is mustard/brown and she embroidered my favorite saying "Simple Blessings" along with the sweetest little sheep. Seeing all of these things on my blog she knew I would love it and she was right. And that's not all...she also included two "Shrubbies" that are cloth on one side and scrubber on the other. I have never seen any of these before but I will bet that they will be my new "go to" for my kitchen cleaning chores.

Thank you sooo much Kendra! I love everything! Your embroidery work is beautiful. If you have not had a chance to stop by Kendra's blog I hope you will. She is currently having a giveaway for the cutest little door hanger bunny you ever saw. Check out the bunny's cute little face and all the detail that she has put into making it so precious. Don't wait too long, the giveaway ends on March 20th and you certainly don't want to miss out! You can find Kendra's blog HERE

I became a follower of Kendra's blog a week or two ago so missed out on the dishtowel swap. Years & years & years ago when I was but a young married lass I remember there being dishtowel swaps advertised in a magazine called Women's Household & I had such fun participating in them! Thanks for the trip down Memory Lane : )
