I joined in on The Chaotic Goddess Local Flavor Swap. We were to send goodies to our swap partner that represented our town, or things specific to our location. It was so much fun gathering things together for my swap partner, Patti of Pandora's Box. While doing so I learned some things about my state of Indiana, such as the cardinal being the state bird and the peony being the state flower.
Here is what Patti sent to me from New York. Everything was individually wrapped, so it was like Christmas in August. Do you see the New York Yankees CHOCOLATE peanut butter bar?
Patti went to great lengths to explain the significance of everything, except for the candy bar. :) It didn't need no explainin'. Do you see the little package at the right bottom that says "a little something I made for you?" It's really something special!
Wait until you see the detail of what is inside this beautiful beaded box she made.
A sewing kit! Isn't it adorable? I really appreciate this and love receiving others' handmade items.
Here's a closer look at the Lemongrass Ginger soap. It has such a wonderful fragrance. Our guest bathroom is smelling very pleasurable right now!
Barbecue sauce, dipping spices and oil...can't wait to try these!
All of this from my new blogging friend and swap partner from
I forgot to take a picture of what I sent Patti, so I borrowed this picture from her blog so I could show you.
