Joy Swap Show and Tell

I think swapping is a lot of fun in general, but I have to say that the Christmas swaps are extra special! Long-time blog friend Kim was my partner this time around, and she put together an amazing gift for me.

Inside the beautiful green box pictured below, Kim included festive stationery, decadent chocolates in a pretty jar, hot chocolate from one of my favorite stores, a fabulous music compilation that I've listened to repeatedly, a cinnamon candle, several ornaments (a fluffy snowman, two cute "joy" ones, and two little snowmen with my kids' names--how sweet of her!), some "Joy" tea (I love Tazo and had no idea they had a blend with that name!), a hand towel, mini cookie cutters, shower gel, and the most lovely shea butter that I've been applying multiple times a day to my dry winter skin. Thanks so much, Kim--you were a thoughtful and generous partner!
I sent Kim a picture frame, peppermint lotion, notepad, candle, "joy" star ornament, homemade soap, snowflake socks, vintage blocks that spell J-O-Y, stickers and note paper, mitten ornament, tissues, cocoa mix, and peppermints.
Now it's your turn to show your goodies. Please link up below--thanks for joining us!
