  1. Love your table runner! And I can't wait to see the rest of your secret swap gift. I know where it's going, so I'll be watching her blog. We've been putzing around the house all weekend, cleaning out the freezers, doing little chores. I need to get several packages ready for the mail today, because DH said he'd go to the Post Office for me tomorrow!!!! Have a great week.

  2. I have the simple life book & just love it! I know you will too. Ohhhhh and swaps going overseas? That's funny I mailed one overseas this week too!

  3. Great swaps, Maria, and I love your totes. GD1 is going to love that one.

    The runner in grannies turned out just beautifully.

    I had to clean up my cave yesterday too. It was a disaster.

  4. WOW haven't you been busy
    LOVE the before and after shots of the cave - aha yep mine looks a lot like the before shot
