Hi, How'dy, How are ya?

Welcome to "The Country Schoolmarm"! Get yourself a cup of coffee (I take mine strong with vanilla creamer), grab a seat, and chat a while! Isn't that what country friends do? Now, all we need is a porch...

Ravenwood Whimzies Fall Pinkeep Swap... Let the Ooooh's and Ahhhh's begin!

 There are just those days... 
You know what I am talking about... The kind you could eat a whole mess of pumpkin dream cookies with cream cheese icing. I didn't.  I am just saying I COULD.  It was rainy.  Humid.  Stressful.  Day.  But God says that He will supply our needs.  He didn't say life would always be easy, but He would supply our needs.  I needed some cheer.  And God's timing with His dewdrops of mercy are just right.  Wendy was my partner for her Fall Pin Keep Swap, and she timed sending out her package just perfectly.  Because, it arrived yesterday.  It was MUCH better than pumpkin cookies!
 What a sweetie!

 Perfect for the day, eh?

This candle smells WONDERFUL!

And, now, the big reveal... Are these not awesome!

 Look at the detail and love she puts into her creations!


 I will cherish these.  They are staying up all year.  I think they would look perfect next to some old children's text books... Teacher shoes!!!

Wendy makes such beautiful things.  It is such a joy to have her handiwork throughout my home...
 Lizzie Bennett, my bunny...

 Winston, my raven...

 My cow, Homer.  This was the first thing I purchased from Wendy when I started blogging!

     Oh...Yup.  Ate the 3 "Fun" sized bags.  They said "Fun".  They needed to be eaten.  I ate the peanut ones.  I shared the others with Steve.  There were 6.  I left Steve 3.  You can do the math to see how much fun I had...  Heee heee...

Thank you SOOOOOOOO much, Wendy, for your thoughtfulness, hard work, and in organizing and hosting this swap!!!  You are a blessing to me!

You can follow her blog here, and her wonderful collection of goodies on etsy here.

Blessings and hugs!
