As it happened, Matt and I opened our presents to each other later in the evening on Christmas because we spent the day with my family back on the farm. The Christmas in the Country gift was the last one I opened and boy, oh boy was there a haul in there!! And I have none other than one of the sweet co-hosts of the exchange to thank, Laurie from Country Linked!
In the note included in the box, Laurie explained each item and why she thought it was something I'd love! Not only did she take some of my suggestions from the sign-up, but she also did some digging and found a few items that I didn't even know I needed until I saw them. She did good!
Here's the lowdown on what I received...
Handmade "Farmer's Daughter" sign from a local business
Burlap wine bag
Two sets of sparkly Christmas ornaments
Homemade cinnamon bread
Popcorn from Laurie's husband's seed company
Laurie did a fantastic job picking out things that I love! The bread she made was so stinking good that it didn't even make it to the picture, but hands down my favorite item was the "Farmer's Daughter" sign! I'm so excited to hang it up in my new office!

My swap partner was Emily from Belle of Beef. She's a college student studying animal science at Penn State University. I sent her a cute Pennsylvania charm bracelet that I found in Las Vegas last month, along with some lavender nail polish, 31 clutch and some homemade Reindeer Chow! I hope she enjoyed her gift as much as I enjoyed picking everything out!
Thanks so much to all the hosts (This Uncharted Rhoade, COUNTRY LINKed, Diaries from the Dirt Road and The Ranch Wife Chronicles) of the Christmas in the Country gift exchange! You gals rock!
