Bunny Swap Reveal & Friday Follow

I am linking up to the waaay coool Friday Follow Party for the first time. It's new to me so I'll let you know how it goes. Basically, I expect to meet a bunch of new blogger friends. I just love meeting new sweeties in Blog Land, don't you? There are a whole lotta neat people out there who inspire me everyday.

This was crazy-fun. It was , also, the first swap that I’ve participated in. It was the Bunny Swap hosted by Miz Mollye! You can hop on over for a full list of partiers. This swap was a great time and Miz Mollye says she’s doing another swap and will give details on April 12. Those of us who wanted to participate signed up and were matched with a blogger who also signed up. My partner was the wonderful Sue from Collectin Texas Gal Blogspot.

I could hardly wait for my Bunny Swap box to arrive in the mail! I think the reason I was extra-excited was the fact that the treasures contained within would definitely be a surprise. My hubby and kids get me presents for special occasions, their gifts are always perfect and I , almost always guess what I’m getting. Since I didn’t know Sue before the swap, I was intrigued by the idea of a true surprise. What would this dear lady from Texas put in a Bunny Swap package?

The entire street on which we live must have heard me squeal; “ My Bunny Swap box is here!!!”. I couldn’t wait to tear into it.


The first peek into the box made me giddy. Doesn’t it look like a fun party going on in there?

An oval frame made of complimentary fabric, nested in a matching fabric box. I could add my own picture but I am enjoying the Victorian photo for now.028 Tea in a Talavera box! What a sweet little tea packet holder! How I love Talavera tiles. I fell deeply in “want” for Talavera tile everything, after a vacation to Puerto Vallarta a couple of years ago.

030-1 Each side of the box is painted a different flower design-love that!

Oops, I need a better picture of this little bunny that is hiding in the background. Sue just knew I was a Collectin Gal from Colorado. This little bunny holder is old and a true treasure. It has a “Japan” sticker on the bottom.

Delicate hankies from Paris, ooh la la! How did she know that I am obsessed with antique and vintage hankies?! These cute little bunny and egg confetti shapes sprinkled out along with the goodies.033

034Are you kidding me?! The hits just keep coming :) I am a collector of purses and swoon for any toile I can get my hands on. A purse MADE with a toile fabric? Hold me up! To make the design more spectacular, the purse is decked out in a chain and jewels.

So how about that? Someone I just met through blogging and the Bunny Swap, chose items that someone who has known me for a long time, could have chosen. How totally cool is that?

Thank you, Sue, for putting together a perfect box for me. I have been delighting in the treasures daily since they arrived. Many blessings to you my new friend!

Hi Cindy...I had soooo much fun getting to know you through your GreatBlog! Yep, I snooped around for days to discover some of your special likes! I knew I had you with the Talavera, but I didn't know about the Toile. Glad you liked your BunnyBox, and I feel like I've made a very special new Bloggin Friend and who knows Colorado and Texas aren't that far apart! Maybe we will meet in person and I'll give you a real big BunnyHug!
