Apple Harvest Blessings Exchange

This has been a very special fall for me. Having my friend LaVonne here was just fantastic! I love this season so much, I almost can't stand it! I participated in another gift exchange so I want to share my treats.
My Tasha Tudor group~TAKE PEACE~had a great exchange this year. It was called APPLE HARVEST BLESSINGS and I thought that was a great theme. I was born in Yakima, Washington-apple country-and I just love apples.
This sweet Tasha sticker was on the front of my package. SOOOO cute! I was paired up with a newer member this time. Cindy did a fantastic job! So, let me show you what she sent!

When I opened the box, everything was packaged so nicely and it was like Christmas!!! Pretty exciting. I almost didn't want to unwrap my goodies.

I tried to get everything tucked into the box so I could take a photo. Cindy lives in CT, so it was fun to receive a package from across the country.

Yummy granola...with apples and cinnamon! I love granola.

There was a cute tote bag from an orchard back east and look at this sweet little apple hanging goodie. Can you see the little magazine in the back? It's a vintage one called Yankee and it is just loaded with all kinds of pictures, articles and advertising from the past. I love it. Cindy said she found some and thought I would enjoy reading it! YES YES YES Cindy!

A darling Tasha postcard that I have never seen...perfect for fall!

This is a sweet advertising postcard from New Home sewing machines. Cindy was pretty good at figuring out what I like. Isn't it a great card?

I adore the fabric on this kitchen towel. It's a great print.

And then you just HAVE to see this! WOW WOW WOW! She made this and the stitches are so tiny I just can't imagine working on something so small. It is beautiful and I absolutely love it. How do you thank someone for something so special that was made by hand for you? Thank you so much Cindy!

She made it for Annabelle, but I think Sylvie Ann has latched onto it. They will have to be nice and share.

Anyway dear Cindy, thank you so very much for such a wonderful and personal package. I appreciate all the thought that went into my lovely box. Happy Fall!
