Etsy Swap 2014

In December, I loved participating in the Great Christmas Exchange. This winter, I also enjoyed the We {Heart} Books Virtual Exchange. Naturally, when Elizabeth at Oak and Oats mentioned the Etsy Swap, I decided to give that a try as well. 

What I sent:

After secretly stalking my partner, Mandy, for quite a while, I sent her a beautiful mug from TB Pots. In addition to choosing something I thought my partner would like, I wanted to choose something gorgeous that was also handmade in the US. These mugs fit that criteria. 

What I got: 

Etsy Swap 1

Of course, I was delighted when my package arrived at my door. The person who had me, Erika, sent me a whole box of goodies! 

Etsy Swap 2

My favorite item was actually this quirky cat ornament from Blobhouse. 

Etsy Swap 3

Like the other exchanges I've participated in, this one was just delightful. As an added bonus, I also loved supporting Etsy artists.
