Queen Of the Month Swap ~~~monipsych~~~

hummingbirddaisyMarch 29, 2007

Debbie hands down her Crown to Monica. TRUMPETS SOUND!!!!!!!! dododoododoooooooo ;-)

Monica walks up the red carpet to her throne and takes her seat to enjoy her reign for April.

Her cute little courtsmen bow before her. They behold fresh Tulips and Hyacinths. She pats them on their cute little heads and smiles (while inside, she is jumping up and down for joy!!!!!! oh and those hyacinths smell just wonderful!!!!)

Enjoy your month! Monica :-)

Thank you, thank you all. But I can't help being worried a little bit about Debbie. With the tornadoes that hit OK and all. Has anybody heard anything? It would put my mind at rest to know she is O.K.

Well 2 boxes arrived Yipee! I opened Ann's last night, and Nancy's this evening. Well it was clear from the get go I love to read, Ann passed on Taste of Home magazines which I love. (Let my subscription lapse last year. And 2 magazine I had not read before. Herb Companion, and Home Companion ,looking forward to having time to read all my goodies.
She also sent a cute apple bookmark, and cute heart photo frame. (For a picture of my dd) A wind chime, puzzle,Yogurt covered pretzels (yum)and sachet. 2 other favorite items were beautiful vintage greeting cards with lovely photos on them and a hyacinth and vase to force bloom in doors. It was called pink pearl, and definitely made it to the favorite list. oops and last but not least an envie of seeds. Thank you , Thank you, your presents were right on. ;) And much apperciated.

Nancy's box was also fantastic......the first thing that jumped out at me was a hanging basket kit for a butterfly garden......way cool! I've never seen anything like it. Also another magazine I've never got! (As you know by now I love books and magazines) A wind sock, note cards, and a sunflower tea towel. And an umbrella for April Showers. Which was great since DH and I fought over the umbrella last week.
Thank you, thank you! Great gifts.

I'm not very picky. I do like bright/bold colors. And since I don't have a ton of bed space left I'm focusing more this year on things that will do well in containers and hanging baskets. Hope this helps. :)

I received Mariann's package yesterday! And wanted to say Thank you! In the box was a homemade wreath, A beautiful calendar and address book. And a small metal tub container that has a do-it yourself mix of impatiens. (It's great!) Love it all! (Although I do feel I'm forgetting something) Thanks a bunch!

Hello, all you queens, former queens and future queens! I joined this group last month, but never had a chance to post to Debbie's thread, as far as I can remember. I did send her a box right at the end of the month - it was a hectic month in fact for me. I hope she liked the items I sent. At this very moment I am in a Marriott at Heath Row airport in London, on my way home from visiting my sick MIL.

Can some lowly lady-in-waiting send me Monipsych's questionnaire? Thanks very much. Didn't see the real Queen on this trip, unless you count MIL. LOL

Hi Birthday Queens. I am a friend of hummingbirddaisys. She is having some problems with GW at the moment, and asked me to post for her.
I am to tell you that a package for Monica will be going out shortly. She misses you all.

Hi hope you are enjoying your month, Queenie!

I've been very busy painting and tiling my house (since the first of the month)! Just got my computer hooked back up and I'm very behind on everything it seems.

Don't worry I haven't forgotten about you!

monica, i need to apologize to you. your package was returned to me as undeliverable and when i checked on it, i see that i goofed and used your town name as your street name.

i need to take a few things out and replace with something else, so it will go out monday morning. i have a wedding out of state tomorrow.

again i apologize. i don't even know what i was thinking when i wrote the address label.

I hope by now that everyone has received my email letting you know that I'll be the new hostess of this swap.

Maryanne I replied to your email on the 28th and sent out a general mailing early this morning. Have you been receiving them? If not I can resend both to you. Let me know.

2 more boxes came yesterday. Thank you, Thank you! Ginger sent some great magazines. I love to look and dream. :) Also the loveliest bamboo hanging basket and seeds. It was REALLY beautiful! Thank you Ginger!
And Debbie OK sent a box packed with goodies. I think it weighed 50 pounds. LOL...... It was great because everything was so nicely wrapped and my DD helped open them all. She laid claim to a garden rock, and the cutest girl fairy figurine. Which is also named Maya. Their were also candles, a rock with a turtle, hummingbird feeder, and I know I'm forgetting something. Oh that's right a beautiful journal which Maya has already claimed. She's writing gardening stories and drawing pictures in it. Thank you Debbie!
It's great to be the Queen!

Sorry I haven't posted sooner, but 2 more boxes arrived in the past few days. And I'm sorry but I can't remember exactly what was in each. My DD helped me open both and of course felt most everything was for her. So after she opened most things the booty got mixed together. I know she had a blast and it was much appreciated. Sue and Maryanne thank you so much! I just know off hand we loved the big garden stone, a cute Teddy Bear fountain, some flower bulbs, gourmet chocolates that didn't last 10 minutes,a flower journal (again which my dtr has confiscated), a stake with a garden nome, etc.....etc.....
Thank you all for a fun month!
