Bloggerrette Society Fall Box Swap 
I am also linking to Pink Saturday since she is letting us do fall this week, and I have some pink to share.  Below is my granddaughter and grandson ready to head off to school Friday morning.  They got to wear their costumes.  I made my Granddaughters.  She loved it. Our grandson is a vampire. Very scary!

And now for my Bloggerette swap   I am so excited to share this wonderful gift I received from my swap partner Deena (Parsley)@ Seasons of my mind.

When I got home from working a weekend retreat, my box was waiting. 
I couldn't , hmm and didn't, wait to open it!

Here are pictures of what my swap partner sent me.

A beautiful silver cross book mark.
Lots of scrap book supplies. Paper, ribbon,stickers and
Some fun Mickey shaped candies for baking.
She cross-stitched this beautiful little sign that is sitting next to my tv.

She knew I loved my dog and bought this frame when she was on vacation!
How nice to be thought of! 
  The picture is of my oldest granddaughter and our dog Jasmine.

She also sent a bone shaped cookie cutter and a recipe for doggie cookies.

Her decorated box is beautiful sitting on my fireplace hearth.

Even the inside is beautiful!

This wonderful see's candy pumpkin didn't last the day! 
Therefore the only large picture is cropped from the group picture... 

Thank you Deena (Parsley) for caring so much and making this fall box swap such a 
wonderful experience!
Blessings to you and your family.

What a cute little Strawberry Shortcake your granddaughter is. You did a great job on the costume.

What a fabulous bunch of gifts you received in that swap. I think swaps are always such fun. I did a teacup swap back in July, and not only did I end up with a bunch of great gifts, I had a new friend as well.

Blessings to you,

That is great! I use to not like the color orange, but it is growing on me slowly, and not just during haloween.
