Another lovely swap package!

Post by strike on Mon Oct 10, 2016 2:30 am

First, I have to apologize for the darkness of the pictures. We just got back from a short Thanksgiving camping trip and I was too excited to wait until the morning to open my package Embarassed

My lovely swappie was Mini Gnome! Of course, I saw the chocolate first so that set my excitement level for the rest of the packages! Laughing (And, I just saw that there is a little gnome sticker on the back of the card! So cute!)



As soon as I opened it I caught the first delicious scent - a spiced mug mat! This will get soooo much use! (You put your warm mug on top of it and it releases the scent) I peeled open the top and inhaled deeply already, so I'm excited to try this.  bounce  And I have an idea of where the little pumpkin lights will go Very Happy



There was also a little black cat soap that I had to get a closeup of.



And, of course, the bead! There was a cute little bee bead in orange/brown and two bronze X links (which will be so useful as I keep stealing links from my one permanent bracelet to make others  Laughing )



Thank you Mini Gnome! I love you

Wonderfully spooky swap. 
FYI, I've decided that the cat smells like patchouli, in a 'witches brew' kind of way.

I had a similar thought when I first pulled it out, too Laughing Now I'm not so sure. It doesn't mention patchouli on the box anywhere, but it certainly does seem to be lightly scented with something.

I bought it because I thought the name on the box 'Bad Kitty' was funny and it seemed perfect as a black cat for Halloween, and it's made in the USA...I didn't realize about the scent!

Oh, I don't think of it as a bad scent (and bad kitty would be an awesome name for the kitty Laughing)

I have never seen a spiced mug mat, looks interesting! Nice smelling packages are the best, mine smelt lovely too Very Happy

Your swap bead and links are the perfect color for fall!


How was your camping trip? Did you have a caravan or a tent?

Our camping trip was lovely! Warmer than usual weather, even warm enough to swim in the lake. We have a little caravan with bunk beds for our kids Smile The park we went to was one of the ones that does a special Halloween event on the weekend, so we decorate our site and the kids go trick-or-treating through the campground Smile And we had a family of deer that visited the first few days Smile

Your camping trip sounds so nice! I bet our son would love something like that too. We only went campimg once, in my parents backyard Laughing

And very cool that the deer came so close during the daytime.

Your camping does sound fun - especially the tricker treating around the camp sites!

I'm glad you like "Bad Kitty" too - I just meant that I never thought to sniff her! ;o) I was just so taken with the cuteness of the package it never dawned on me to give her a whiff!

I added the lights to my little tree and have been enjoying them as part of my small Halloween scene for the last week.



I have also been enjoying my little bee since he arrived. I put him in my Thanksgiving bracelet Smile
