the swap’s package

It’s been a couple of weeks now since we received the beautiful package from Siena’s swap partner, for the kids’ handmade swap I organized last month.  Look at the tape! It was such a happy package to get.


We arrived home one day to find a fun-filled package from Sophia, Stephinie’s daughter, Mama from the amazing Gypsy Forest blog.

Everything was so delicately wrapped.  We were all watching Siena unveil her treasures.

Filled, filled! with treasures and beauties from the East Coast.


Fairy house parts, shells, obsidian and other rocks, spider crab claw…

And a beautiful handmade card to be treasured.  What a treat it was!  Siena loved every piece she received and they are using them to play throughout the days.  Thank you Sophia and Stephinie, it was such a special treat to be transported to your side of the world for a moment, and get to know you a little bit.  I think the kids would love to hang out and play together.  Thank you!

We are looking forward to another swap in the future.
