giving / receiving sparkle.

As you might already know, i love a good swap. My dear friend Kaileen hosted a Sparkle Swap where you send another blogger four unique gifts-- a bit of sparkle, a treat that soothes, something sweet, and a surprise. I was excited to receive my sparkle gift today from Heather of Day Dreams & Fairy Tales.

sparkle included chocolate raspberry coffee i can't wait to try out, journal with glittery pencils and cupcake stickers, "lay seeds not stones" packets, wine coaster with wine stem charms, and two of my faves-- a book and chocolate. Heather, i've already devoured the espresso filled dark chocolates and wished there was a world market nearby so i could buy some more! thank-you for a wonderful swap package xo


i got Ginna of My Pretty Pennies who wrote this very sweet write-up about my swap package to her and why i chose each four things. 

getting to know a blogger through swaps are my favorite. 
*speaking of swaps, it's almost that time of year for the ornament exchange on my dolce vita!

As usual you send out the most beautiful packages. And I love that each thing has meaning :)

You received some lovelies too. A sparkle swap sounds fabulous.

I'm so glad you liked your package! I'm sorry it came so late. I sent it out the first time to an imaginary address.

Check your mail in the next few weeks. If I can find those candies again I'll send some your way. I grabbed the last 2 packs at my store and haven't seen them since.

I have so much to discuss with you (have you read on my blog about my mother-daughter trip to New York?!)... time to start a good long letter, I think.

I can't wait for the ornament exchange. It's the third year now! Hard to believe. I'm so happy you got me that first year, sweet friend.
xoxo
