This afternoon my house was filled with the LOVE and JOY of friends and their children!
It was the day of our Autumn swap!
We decided to do a swap so we could grow our collection of nature table goodies...this ended up being a low cost way for us all to enjoy some beautiful handmade works of art and craft for our homes.
I tell you, as we're pulling out the goodies, it was like Christmas...all the kids were busily playing, but us moms were all gathered around the table like anxious kids on Christmas morning.
There were many squeals of delight!
the chaotic kitchen table...brimming with goodies to eat and beautiful gifts!
sweet Autumn gnomes...with hand dyed felt from our mysterious good friend at Wabi Sabi Wanderings and a lovely knitted acorn from Stephanie at The Knitty Gritty Homestead!
Here is Stephanie showing off the lovely Autumn garland from our friend Erin at Embracing the Now!
Erin also included a copy of this poem for us all!
