Sweet day...{and maybe a little bit sinister too}

I received my goodies from my swap partner Heidi for the Parasols, Pink Lemonade and Polka Dots swap. Did she ever stock me up with fun summer retro sweets. Check out this tray above and the cotton candy and taffy. I'm going to have a major sugar buzz!She also found some cute vintage finds, like these vintage trims (below) that she made into "sundaes". Now that's my kind of dessert!
So many fun things in this package.
Love this sign she made!! Thanks, Heidi So with all this sweetness going on, I'm thinking about hosting my Sweet and Sinister Halloween swap again. Remember last year?I'm not taking sign ups quite yet, but just wanted to put some feelers out there to see if people want to do it again. It won't be exactly the same. I'll have a few new tricks up my sleeve. I will be doing it early to give people plenty of time to get things ready for the best Halloween swap ever! I'm already getting in the mood.

More to come soon...

I would love to play again for a halloween swap. I met Sandy from Canada through your Sweet & Sinister swap last year and have made a life long friend. We will even get to meet at Silver Bella this year! A very special treat indeed!

If you do the swap, I'll join as well. It seems there's a whole slew of us who didn't participate last year. You throw a smashing swap Kari, and it seems there are lots of us who want to play.
