Swap received!

What a treat to come home to after a long run! My swap box from lenaperry arrived and was waiting patiently for me to get back home (in the janitors closet... poor swap box!).

Grizzly and clouds to cover up addresses so its not roaming around Flickr... and also to scare off Chloe cat, LOL :)

Yes, it smelled good so yes, a cat HAD to check it out. Plus it smells of Canada, which is completely unique to a US-born and raised kitty. Chloe was reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally into this bag. ;) Also I opened it with scissors before remembering to take photos. Doh!

What are ALL THE THINGS? Is it BAM-tastic? WHY YES IT IS.

Seriously, when your fiance gets excited because he sees you pulling k-cups out of the bag, you know it's a great swap. ;)

So many goodies for fall! The candle is maple-scented and in a cute maple cyrup can from Quebec. SO IT HAS FRENCH ON IT. Love. :D There was also a sweet smelling soap that had talk of sexual revolutions on it - pinup art and bath bombs? Two of my very favorite things. Also, MORE FRENCH. Eee! She also sent some nice red cotton fabric since apparently Canada thinks fall fabric = hunting (I laughed, Lena!) and also two handmade soaps by Lena! They smell GOOD. I especially love the almost cinnamon spark in the bluish one. Mmm... Will I ever leave the bath? I may not. ;) If you sell these ever, WATCH OUT. I will order lots, hehe! Lastly is a beautiful handmade memory bracelet which will fit my tiny little wrists perfectly. I think the green stones are chryoprase, by the way, Lena. I love those and have SO MANY myself. I love it and will try to match it to an outfit for tomorrow~

Lena also included a sweet little note talking about each of the items and her reasons for including them. It was sweet and hilarious all at once. So much BAM. :D

Chloe approves of this swap too. She REALLY likes the soap. As in will not stop sniffing it. Shoo shoo, little one! LOL

Aloof cat says "Who, me? NEVER!" ;)

Thank you sooooooooooooo much, Lena. Everything is fabulous. I even get to fight Ryan for the k-cups. It's truly an autumn adventure in a box. I cannot wait to take a bath and come out smelling golden like the crisp autumn air. Thank you. <3

ETA: I need to learn HTML all over again apparently. Sorry! :x

ETA #2: I tried one of the coffees last night and it was so smooth and mellow... love love!

How grand! A maple scented candle? I think I might eat it. :P

Lovely and I like how she included fabric for your sewing adventures! :)

It smelled so wonderful! The can is absolutely adorable.

And yes, fabric! I'm thinking it would be super cute if I can figure out giftcard holders because it reminds me of snowflakes. :)

OMG BAM. I am so happy you liked everything! It is so surreal to see the things I chose and gathered together all there together and being investigated by your kitty. :) So cute!

The bear and cloud you stuck on the envelope scared me terribly, because I was all "I DIDN'T PUT THOSE ON THERE!" and started having wild thoughts about the insanity of Canada Post workers, and then I realized you put them there thoughtfully to protect our privacy lest the Official Flickr Creeps find us out.

I am so, so glad you loved everything and that it reached you safely. <3

Hahaha I was too lazy to photoshop so I thought "Oh, Flickr has a program to do edits!" but I had to pay to use the airbrush so I saw a bear clipart and though PERFECT. LOL! ;) He's BAM-BEAR!

I love everything so much! Thank you~ I hope you love my box and that the post office hurries it along. Come on, USPS! GET MY BOX TO LENA.

THE MAPLE CANDLE IS AMAZING BY THE WAY. I needed to let you know. Seriously, we LOVE burning it. Makes the house smell like waffles in the woods for days in only the best ways. Thank you!!! <3

Waffles in the woods ... While an anonymous hot man wearing flannel chops wood?

Can you even imagine? Lol!

I'm so glad you love it. :).
