I was so excited when I came across the Food Blogger Prop Swap hosted by Alyssa of www.EverydayMaven.com and Faith of www.AnEdibleMosaic.com. I thought it sounded like a lot of fun to be assigned a partner to send surprise goodies to. They don't know who you are or what you are going to send PLUS someone is assigned your name so you get a box in the mail full of surprises yourself. I mean it is like Christmas right?
I don't know what I was more excited about, sending the box to my secret swap partner, or seeing what I would receive. I think it was pretty much a tie. Although I was very nervous because this is my first time and I wasn't sure what to send and was worried wondering if they would be able to use the items I sent them. I am crossing my fingers on that one!
Now I am excited to start hitting estate sales and yard sales to see what little treasures I can pick up not only for myself, but for my next swap buddy.
The box I received was from Haley. Her blog CheapRecipeBlog.com is awesome. It is full of fantastic recipes that won't drain your wallet. If you are looking for some very budget friendly meals you have got to check out her blog. Plus she is just a sweetheart! She sent me a little note with every prop.
When my box arrived I was so excited to open it!
I couldn't believe how many props she fit into one box!
Look at all of this great stuff!!
I can't wait to use this plate!
I am in love with these napkins.
This has my mind working
I love the idea that we both have these now so we can see what we use them for!!
Haley read my mind with these! I have been looking all over for these straws. Thank you so much Haley for all of the fantastic goodies you sent to me. I am so excited to start using them!!
