Halloween Swap

Don't you just love to get packages in the mail?
I do!
I think that's the main reason
I signed up over at PEA'S for the Halloween Swap.:-)

I don't normally make a big deal of Halloween. Except, of course, for the handing out of the candy at the door. We live in a neighborhood that does not have busy, through streets. Therefore, LOTS of people come to Trick or Treat down our street. It is not unusual for us to have 100+ little revelers. We have a friendly, neighborhood carnival atmosphere for about three hours on Halloween evening. I enjoy passing out the candy and telling the little ones how precious they look.

I'm not into the scary movies and chainsaws, etc. of Halloween. That is just not my cup of brew. However, I do like the childlike fun of dressing up and GETTING CANDY. (I'm sure you are aware that there are no calories in the candy eaten while giving cute little princesses and pirates their share at the door!)

ANYWAY--When I saw PEA's Swap I thought it sounded like fun. I have not done a blogging swap, so I thought it would be give it a try. I have enjoyed putting together some little treats for my "swap friend." She has not received the package yet, but should in just a day or two or three--It's on its way, Michelle!

Today I received this sweet package in the mail!
My "Swap Friend", Julie Marie, even decorated the box.

Inside, the first thing I found was this cute little cat!
I will have a hard time convincing granddaughter,
Ella, to leave him at my house.

There was More!
The treats just kept coming!
This cute little Jack-o-Lantern fellow was next out of the box.
He had a mischievous grin on his funny little bobble head!

And More!
On the bottom of the box
I found this nice Halloween tray.
I will be filling it with brownies later today.

And More!
Topping off the swap gift
was a card with another sweet kitty
wishing me a Happy Halloween!
The little packages in this picture are
"sniff, sniff" tissues for the sniffles!
Too Cute!
Thank you Julie Marie for brightening my day!
I was right!
It is fun, and now I have two new blogging friends!
One new friend lives in north central USA;
the other lives in the southwest.
Isn't the blogging world great?!

Looks like fun. I'm with you in enjoying handing out candy on Halloween. It's a great time of seeing most of my neighbors!

How neat!!! I saw this on Pea's page but not being very much into Halloween I passed on it. I'll have to jump into one of these in the future.

I am so glad you liked your Halloween gifts!

I am like you - I do not like the ugly part of Halloween at all - chainsaws, Frankenstein, Dracula, skeletons, yuck! I am totally into vintage Halloween and I will be doing more posts about that.

I was so disappointed when we moved into our house because I thought we'd get lots of Trick or Treaters. But they never come down our street. :{
