I recently participated in a "Local Flavor Swap" over at Chaotic Goddess
and my swap partner was Patty @ Patty's Pretty Things.
This was a fun swap and a wonderful way to meet a new blogging friend. Patty lives in Indiana and sent me a package of wonderful gifts:
This is a book from the Sanctuary in Zionsville with lovely art work and a special signed print, which I plan to frame and hang in my bedroom!
And who knew? Vera Bradley is located in Ft Wayne. She took time to download the VB patterns and, using her silhouette, made the cutest note cards (VB - have you thought of this?)
These adorable notepads will be great to toss into my purse - I am always looking for a piece of paper to jot down thoughts or email addys!
The state flower and state bird is represented in these cute little gift tags:
When I think of Indiana, I think of corn, so she cleverly used candy corn to represent it! And who knew? Balls canning jars are made in Indiana? Can you see the Clabber Girl baking powder in the background? Again, who knew?
Patty also included some poems byJames Whitcomb Riley along with some prints.
It was so enjoyable to meet Patty and learn so much about her home state - and it's also rewarding to meet a new blogging friend! Thanks, Patty!
