#bloggerexchange ~ July

as we get older, reaching for the mailbox becomes less exciting. there is usually more bills than “fun mail”. Not to even start discussing email versus snail mail. I leave that for another post.
My friend Lani of Elle Dee designs started a monthly blogger exchange.


Each month Lani chooses a theme and we then get to fill a box of goodies and send it off to a friend. July was our first month playing along. Our theme was “Where I Come From…”
The person you are sending to is not the same person you will receive from! that makes the exchange all the more exciting.
I know you want to see what came in my package for July!

My package traveled from California. from the sweet home of Angela at The Livingston’s House Full of Boys

items in package:

  • handmade gift tags
  • almonds picked from her friends farm
  • sand from the beach
  • chocolate from San Francisco
  • washi tape
  • in-n-out burger hats
  • An ocean scented candle
  • and a hello wood/nail art

Call me spoiled if you must, i will own that title!
I have never eaten at an in-n-out so these hats were a fun surprise!

in-n-out burger

the sand and candle are displayed in my living room. they match my decor perfectly! I especially loved the wood sign wall! I always get giddy about adding more handmade to my most favorite gallery wall! and her blog/facebook,twitter, instagram stalking skillz were perfect. everything she sent matched perfectly where it would be displayed!

next week i will show you goodies came in my August #bloggerexchange package. again, i am spoiled and i know it.
To participate send an email to lani@elledeedesigns.com for more information.
