The Wanderers have returned...

...to lots of goodies!
Last month, you might remember I signed up for a swap over at Peggy's site,
The Simple Woman. The premise was to be thrifty, finding one new thing, one gently used thing from your home, & a thrift store find, all of which have a Summertime theme & to spend no more than $12.00.
While we were away visiting the in laws in Oregon, my package arrived from Jamie of Notes from the Farm, so here are some photos of the treasures she sent.

You can't see them here, but the girls have evidently been circling the box for a couple days & are highly impatient to have it opened (judging by the tiny teeth marks on the packing tape)

"Oh, goody! Peanuts!"

A nice big bag to carry my summer knitting;

Handmade soap samples

A patriotic pillow in homespun fabrics (from her home), a cunning little shelf found at a garage sale, & some zinnia seeds to put in the garden.

Oops~ there's Dahlia, ready to explore (she was inside the bag within seconds, playing with her pilfered packing peanut)
