Hometown Swap!

I had read about swaps for a while, and FINALLY got to try one a couple of months ago. I LOVE THEM! So when I read about Shannon's Hometown Swap? I was so excited! I especially liked this one because I didn't know who or where I was getting a package from... until today! When it arrived! YAY!

For the Hometown Swap, we each picked an area of the country we'd never been to or were interested in. My 2 choices were New England & The South. Today the mailwoman delivered my package - all the way from Tennessee! My package came from Melissa, who blogs at Campbell Chatter. Here's the loot:

A Tennessee Titans T-Shirt and a beautiful country style decoration for my house! Plus of course a really nice card from Melissa! To tell you the truth, I am not always one for country style decorations. But I really like this one! It's really cute, and I really love stars. And, the willow tree is my favorite tree! So, I promptly hung it up in my kitchen...

The 'Love' magnet at the bottom is actually separate, but I liked how it looked stuck to the vase, so I left it! It's a little crooked, but I didn't have the patience to fix it right now, because I wanted to come show you all what I got!

I don't watch football much, so from now on I will just root for the Titans, ok? After all, I have the gear!

To see what I sent out from my home town, good old Bellingham, head over to Kat's place at Sunshine & Lemonade!

To see the other awesome things people sent (I can't wait to see!) head over to Shannon at Welcome to the Nuthouse!

On a completely unrelated note, my living room? Totally the transportation hub of Washington.

Oooo... niiiiice! I've always liked willow trees... but have never had in my yard.

Thanks again for participating!

P.S. Go Titans!

Great stuff! I can't wait to get my package. :)

Kat said...

Very cool. I have always wanted a weeping cherry tree for the front yard. I just can't figure out where to put it. Along with the orchard...and blueberry bushes...and sunflowers...and garden. We live in the shade.

I am thinking I need to do another swap. But I need a theme!

Wow, that is SO neat!

Vicki said...

Woo! Wasn't this a fun swap?

PS - love the color of your kitchen!

So fun! I love bloggy swaps and Shannon had such a great idea with that one.

Melissa said...

I'm glad you liked your stuff. I debated long and hard about what to get you, so I am happy to know it worked out. Thanks for the link to my blog!
