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...

Humble Heart Swap

What lovely swaps Amy from Bumblebee Lane Cottage has.  This is my first one with her. My Swap partner was a dear woman, Linda Gates from Country Pickin's.  The last two weeks had been rough- being sick and lots of bad weather and missed days of schools.  What a mess! But Saturday, what a treat awaited me.  She spent time getting to know me.  We had great conversations and found many common interests! But her box was just so beautiful and truly thoughtful.

Perfect remedy for stress... Chocolate!

For me, Mama?  She gave me something? Oh, okay.  Bailey too.  But me, right?
Yes, the puppies felt loved too.  Thank you, Linda!

More goodies...

Good smelling...


The swap had to have handmades.  Linda is a very talented lady!  I love my prim treasures.


Thank you, Linda!  I definitely felt loved!  Thank you for bringing such a bright spot to my week!!

Blessings and Warm Hugs to You All!
