Autumn Package Swap

This month I participated in an Autumn package swap! It was hosted by Kristin at Vignettes. I was paired with Taylor from Anticipation. We emailed a couple times and perused each others blogs and went to work! It was so much fun to find fun things to send to her, and then to come home after a weekend away and find her package to me waiting for me in my room.

A letter.

Tea (including pumpkin spice chai - a favorite of mine) and hot chocolate! 

A scented candle that smells like caramel latte, apple pie, and cedarwood. 

Chocolate to eat and a chocolate face mask. Now, I don't exactly know what a "nib" is, but that candy bar was definitely tasty. 


Stationary! Taylor paints (check out her Etsy), and when she saw I liked this set of notecards, she gave them to me! 

She also sent the cutest pair of mittens and two bright nail polishes - because sometimes cold weather can be a little drab.

Love,
Scout

I so wish I would have heard about this swap sooner!! Such a great idea!

By the way, I've been perusing your blog and you take beautiful photography..really enjoying it!

ANDDD, question, are you named after Scout from To Kill A Mockingbird? Because if so, your parents are awesome. If not, I'm sure they're still awesome :)
