:: A Second Spring Swap ::

It’s me again, I am excited to be back so soon! I did another Spring swap! This time with my dear friend Dana! And I have to tell you these goodies just arrived on my doorstep today! Everything looks and SMELLS so wonderful…I couldn’t wait to show you! I only wish computer screens had scratch n’ sniff!

This Easter Rusty Tin Candle is so great ::

Swap With Dana 005

She rusts the can herself. I just love it!

Swap With Dana 007

These adorable little flowers are scented in Honeysuckle. Such a different fragrance for me. Beings I am a self proclaimed “foodie” lover. But these smell so fresh and Spring-y!

Swap With Dana 029

I am always telling Dana that her tarts are TOO pretty to burn. I have made a promise to her that I will burn these. But I SO love using them in my displays!!  Which one should I melt in my tart burner first….Honeysuckle??

Swap With Dana 035

Nah….Honeysuckle will have to wait! I HAVE to burn Pumpkin Crunch! It is my absolute favorite of all Dana’s scents! Anytime of year I LOVE it!

Swap With Dana 037

See Dana….I am melting it! :)

Swap With Dana 040

Next on my list to melt is Caramel Coffee! Mmmmmm ::

Visit Dana’s website. Homespun Treasures. She just updated it for Spring and Easter! So many goodies to choose from!

What a FUN swap! I will enjoy everything and I will think of my sweet friend whenever I am melting one of these yummy tarts or burning that candle (that’s in the Pumpkin Crunch scent too) I told you I’m addicted to it!

I hope you all have a wonderful night…or day, wherever you may be! This has been a great day for me. Many reasons to count my blessings!! So thankful for so many things!

Until next time, take care.
