Swap goodies from Sara:

Hi blog friends!
It's turning out to be a beautiful Saturday afternoon here in the valley.
It rained most of the morning, but the skies have cleared and the sun is shining~ 
Sorry I've been MIA for awhile.
It seems there just is not enough time in the day for all things to be done and I've battled a head cold and flu for the past few weeks. I lost my voice, which Larry loved, but I'm on the mend and hope to get some creative juices flowing again.

Sara from Salmon Falls Prims and I did a private swap and this huge box came in the mail yesterday.
I couldn't wait to open the box and no I did not get a picture of it but it was huge!

Sara makes the most beautiful wood items~ and I got to chose three for our swap.
Beautiful table riser~ I have it on my kitchen table.

Primitive stove/noodle board! I've been wanting one for awhile and when I seen that Sara makes them I just had to have it! 

And look at this cute what not box! I love it! 

Sara also surprised me with this sweet birdhouse and prim flower she made.
I love it all!!

Sara is a very talented wood crafter and the finishes on the wood are so prim perfect!
Thank you so much Sara for doing this swap with me~ 
Stop by Sara's blog to see what she's been up to~ 
 Sara also has an Etsy store you can visit!

Thanks for stopping by~
Wishing you all a great weekend!
Spring Blessings,


  1. Those are great swap items Jean! I've never seen a what-not box like that-love it! Hope you get back to creating soon (love your background) ~*~Lisa

  2. Hi Jean~
    I'm glad you are feeling better my friend!
    What wonderful swap items you got. I will have to go check out her site.
    We are finally have some beautiful weather and of course around here that means neighbors and farmers are burning their weeds and canals before the water is let in. So much for having a few windows open!
    Take care~

  3. Glad you are feeling better Jean. Love your goodies! Working at our store today, but we are overcast over here by the river..but our customers don't seem to care. I must have missed Margie's Heart giveaway...have to scoot on over there. Take care and have a great weekend! Janice

  8. Jean...what wonderful swap goodies!! Love everything you got. Glad you are feeling better.

  9. Jean, nice swap goodies. I have seen the noodle boards while a friend and I went to a local shop and she didn't know what it was for. I would love one but the Mr would think it was silly to cover the stove. I could use it on top of the dryer though. He never goes in the laundry room, lol.
    Glad to see you got one in a swap since they are quite pricey in the shops.
    Have a nice Sunday
    Country at heart
