I especially love the vintage scissors ♥️✂️ - thank you to our hosts for such a fun swap!

Thank you for sending me in an awesome trip around the world, as the indomitable Nellie Bly, @StayCurious! Such a fun package. I love everything, but am especially stoked about the pocket watch and pen! Hoping to dig into the books and candy soon. Thank you and our hosts! @DinoMom @Chrissyreadit #staycationintimeswap #sits #staycationintime

Finished the cozy, by audio - 3rd in the series. Always happy to visit Carrie in the library. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Reading Vladimir for #RealLifeBookGroup… cover removed to avoid certain conversations 😬

And mailed all the things!

Omg Gisela! You have spoiled me with this #SITS #StaycationInTime package! 😍

What a fabulous trip to Scotland for me. THREE hardcovers of my beloved Outlander series (a heck of a head start to my finally getting them all), plus another Scotland book from my wishlist. All of this chocolate, the standing stones mug, tea infuser, dragonfly necklace & earrings, journal, art print & I‘m in LOVE with the tote.❤️

Gonna post more pictures. Thank you!!

Chrissyreadit Wow 😍😍😍 14mo
Gissy I‘m glad that you liked them. I wasn‘t sure about the necklace but the person who helped me said it was part of the story. I haven‘t read this series so I don‘t know anything. But if you want to change it I have the receipt. I tried to follow your wish list. The tote, art print, journal & mug are from my favorite online store Society6. I bought the chocolates in a store called La Hacienda because the use to have different chocolate brands 14mo
sprainedbrain @Gissy I‘m going to have to check out that store! No, I wouldn‘t change a thing about this awesome box. 14mo
Gissy @sprainedbrain I‘m glad you liked everything! Warning: you can be addicted to Society6. They have common bookish items related with some books. Enjoy your reading time! 14mo

@Avanders now I feel spoiled! I LOVE my #staycationintimeswap box & my journey to the British Isles. What a treat to come home & open it at the end of a long hard week. From the blue compass gift wrap (my favorite color) to the tote bag, little ceramic dish, the Scottish Breakfast Tea, peanut M&Ms all the paper crafting things—pretty stickers, gorgeous metallic pens & weekly planner sheets & pretty bookmarks & the wonderful books. I am excited ⬇️

DebinHawaii …for all of them but especially excited for the vintage British Isles cookbook. And, the others: Celtic Tales & Botanical Folk Tales, & Sea Room because…puffins! I tried to get some different photos to show it all off! 💙💙💙 Mahalo for your kindness & generosity!

And mahalo to @Chrissyreadit for hosting the #sits What fun! 🤗

Gissy Love the bookish items and that book of Spirit Run!😱I need to read it! You gave me Sabrina & Corina in one swap. I need to read it! I‘m behind my reading goals due to this running training. Tomorrow we are going to do our first 16 miles. I‘m so slow, always the last one in the training☹️ 14mo
Chrissyreadit @Gissy that‘s impressive! I bet I stacked Sabrina and Corina because of you. Also your slice of summer package shipped today. 14mo

Chrissyreadit @sblbooks I am honestly blown away by the thoughtfulness of these items! I feel like I cheated on yours by finding everything in one container. I have to say the tote just makes me smile! 14mo
sblbooks @Chrissyreadit no worries, it's great! I love the Scottish highland cow too. I'm going to have to pick Scotland and Ireland for theme now. I wanted to keep everything😉 maybe year after next...I already know where I want to go next year. 14mo

Gissy Mmmm😋you have good goodies!! A reading time with snacks? Yes please! 14mo
DebinHawaii I am glad you like it! 🎉I was a little worried about being so liberal with your “anywhere haunted” request but we do have a lot of “chicken skin” places in Hawaii.😉👻& I was excited to shop my local book store & craft fairs. I tried to get somewhat ghostly on a couple books & noticed all the cozy mysteries on your feed & added one YA speculative.🤷🏻‍♀️ I‘m glad Buggy liked his book & thought the tiki craft would be quick & fun to do.🤗 14mo
DebinHawaii FYI—i am opening mine tonight after work because I wanted to savor it after surviving the week & not open it up & then have to rush to get to the office. Delayed gratification! I‘ll post tonight. 💜💜💜 14mo
LeahBergen I love the spice packs! 😍 14mo
Avanders @TrishB @Chrissyreadit @sblbooks @gissy @LeahBergen I know, I‘m so excited about it all! Also, buggy is obSESSED with the lip balm 🥰♥️😘😘😘 14mo
Avanders @DebinHawaii I love it!! 💝💝💝 And I love local stuff 🥰🥰 And of course, you can never go wrong with cozies 😜 And no worries on the timing - I completely understand wanting to enjoy after a long day at work! ☺️😘 (edited) 14mo
