Favorite Things Swap Hosted by Mamarazzi @ Dandelion Wishes

Wednesday, February 8, 2012


Raindrops on roses, and whiskers on kittens...

{Speaking of favorite things, The Sound of Music is my all-time favorite movie.  But I digress...}

Mamarazzi @ Dandelion Wishes hosts the *best* swaps, and I am so, so happy to be a part of her latest swap with its theme of Favorite Things.

Now it's retail therapy time!!!  Decisions, decisions....what to buy for my swap partner....should I buy her the best lip balm *ever*, or that new tea that has become my new favorite?  Or, what about something to read, or hear?   There are so many things I would like to share, and I cannot wait to put my swap partner's package together!


I just love this button.  How cute!

I look forward to sharing my surprises with you in early March.  

What are some of your favorite things?

Until next time...

  1. I'm playing too. My first! I have so many favorite things it will be hard to choose. Can't wait.

  2. Favorite things - oh so many to write here! By the way - the post office has released the Valentine's Day stamps - i purchased a sheet yesterday.

    All the best - Katie

  3. I'm so excited that you're participating in this one! :D
    I'm hoping to include a book, some coffee, some home decor, maybe a journal for writing....I can't wait!

  4. I was in a springtime swap and I had a ball! Keep your eyes open and package up things YOU love...I am sure she will love it, too!

    Did you paint the rose? It is beautiful!


    1. That rose is absolutely gorgeous and I thought it was a photo until i read this comment

  5. Have you ever heard of 31 bags? They are my new favorite thing. I just went to a party the other day and bought so many awesome bags! Good grief, I sound like a consultant which I assure you, I am not. I once tried to be a pampered chef consultant and found it impossible to up-sell even my own mother-in-law! I stunk!

    Anyway, good luck with your shopping!

  6. what a beautiful rose, just amazing.
    I for got to tell you the card is mailed to Holly, I hope she is well.
