Thanks Melinda, I am just worried about this computer, had to buy a new one and it came with Windows Vista and I have had tons of trouble with it being compatible with programs especially emails. So I was really worried about the forums showing me or not. Thanks.

RE: new: garden decorating rr-august 'for the birds' swap!

I am new to the trading forums and have a question. Is this trade for a 'box' of items? Is there a minimum or maximum?

I assumed it was for a box and have collected 6 items already.....just checking to make sure. :)

Rox


 o
RE: new: garden decorating rr-august 'for the birds' swap!

Yes, Rox, this will be for sending a box of the bird related things to your partner. Deb will assign you a partner and that's who you will send your box too. And whoever gets your name will send a box to you! Fun, huh!
I'm not sure about the minimum or maximum. Some swaps have it and some don't. Just remember to send a box you would like to receive if possible!
Waiting anxiously for my partner! Melinda

RE: new: garden decorating rr-august 'for the birds' swap!

Good morning, Rockyridge/Roxanne!

I'm such a scatterbrain! I've got your box ready to go, and darned if I cannot find your address anywhere. Sheesh, I can only blame parenthood-induced ADD so often before I realize that my kids aren't (totally) at fault, LOL. Please, please send me your address again! I apologize - my act has NOT been together this week. Still, I had so much fun with your first craft that I stayed on a roll and did another for your box, so you'll benefit a little in the end.

Have a great weekend!

Laurel


 o
RE: new: garden decorating rr-august 'for the birds' swap!

Laurel,

You're talking to the original scatterbrain here!!! LOL
So much so that when I found a daylily named 'Scatterbrain' I just had to have it. My kids are grown so I'm afraid I only have myself to blame!

WooHoo!!! Two craft items! I can tell already I'm gonna love your box. I e-mailed my addy to you.

Can't wait!

Roxanne


 o
ilovefarac/Melinda

Melinda,

It just occured to me......

PEA brain....OH yes...I've got a pea brain..... :)

The homemade item I sent you is probably going to be reallllll melty. Never thought about that before I sent it. I don't know how hot it is where you are; it was 105 here yesterday but we had a 'cool' front come through last night and it's only supposed to reach 95 today.

The surprise item is wrapped in wax paper and in a plastic bag so it won't mess anything else up; but you might want to let it sit a day or toss it in the fridge before you unwrap it. Hope I haven't given too much away......wanted it to be a surprise after all. LOL

Roxanne


 o
RE: new: garden decorating rr-august 'for the birds' swap!

Hello All! And Roxanne I got your box yesterday morning! I haven't felt very well so will post quickly what I got! I loved it all!! And the homemade thing did just fine! Already put in freezer!

RE: new: garden decorating rr-august 'for the birds' swap!

I'm glad you liked everything! It was great fun putting it all together. Boy! those edible bird feeders(whole wheat bagels) smelled so good when I was smearing on the peanut butter I had to snitch one and toast it. Mmmmmmmmmm!!!

I hope you are feeling better soon. Is it from this awful heat?

RE: new: garden decorating rr-august 'for the birds' swap!

cedarnest... I'm so sorry for not posting sooner. Your box arrived on Friday, but darling hubby forgot to mention that to me! I work weekends, and although the box has been opened, the contents haven't been sorted through. Your post has me wondering if I should dig around a little. It's so hot here that no plant has a chance to survive. :( THANK YOU for your swap... I'll post tomorrow all that's inside!!!


 o
RE: new: garden decorating rr-august 'for the birds' swap!

Klick,the # says it was delivered 2 days after I sent it already on Thursday not Friday so now I am indeed freaking out..lol : ( I added a couple plants birds love from your wants list.Thats why I was concerned about it.I hope they are still alright but doubtful now.Oh well,If they aren't I can send you replacements when it cools a bit.Thanks for letting me know it arrived.

I . G.O.T . M.Y . B.O.X !.!.!

Wow! Wow! Wow! and a resounding WOW!!!

I am thrilled with everything in it.

Laurel sent me the GREATEST box!

Where to begin? Where to begin?

Ok here goes:

Birdola Black Gold Finch Bar

2 bags of gourmet coffee:
Hawaiian Kona Blend
Cafe' Mocha Tiramisu

Home-made bird feeder in the shape of a star....too cute! how did you do that?

A cute little burlap pull string bag with terra cotta beads; filled with adorable little miniature hanging bird houses. I love them.

Several fans of Siberian Iris 'Windwood Spring'

Several fans of Daylily 'Evening Harmony'

An absolutely Gorgeous hand made bird house. Absolutely incredible!
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!!!

I also got a cute little card and a wonderful letter.

The box was actually bursting at the seams it was so full.

Thank you soooo much Laurel

Roxanne


 o
RE: new: garden decorating rr-august 'for the birds' swap!

Roxanne, you are so welcome! I'm glad you like the crafts, I had fun doing them. The little birdseed/PB star is on a grapevine ornament frame I got in a bag of craft stuff - it was an experiment, and I'm sorry if it's a little gooey - natural PB isn't as adhesive as Jiff, lol.

I'm glad the box made it through the mail - the post office clerk wasn't sure it would pass muster at the main sorting facility because it was bulging at the seams, so I sent it on a wing and a prayer.

Have a wonderful end of summer, and I hope we'll cross paths again in another swap.

RE: garden decorating rr-august 'for the birds' swap!

Hi Trina!

Your box arrived today, and my daughter and I had great fun unpacking it in the front yard in the shade. Thank you for the fun, thoughtful things you put in the box! For everyone's benefit, here are the goodies:

- Trina's "mystery lilies" (which appear to be amaryllis bulbs - I'll grow them indoors, I love amaryllis)
- Elephant Ears bulb (thanks, I've been wanting to try these)
- A mystery plant (neither of us know what it is! - I'll plant it indoors and see what I get, since coming from TX it might not like my chilly Upstate NY winters)
- A hummingbird tabletop windchime (my daughter LOVES it)
- A cute shovel-with-perching-birds wall decoration (broken in transit, but easily fixable - the box arrived looking a bit battered)
- Garden gloves and some useful tools (trowel and weeder - I'm ALWAYS misplacing stuff like that, so spares are welcome)
- A garden pocket calendar
- A hummingbird feeder!! Hooray!! I've been wanting one of those.
- Seed envelopes
- Wire suet feeder and two suet blocks - my downy woodpeckers will be delighted
- Pink Grapefruit-scented body lotion (Mmmmmm! Nice!)
- Pot stakes topped with birds (my daughter loves those - they'll be decorating containers all over the house)

I sure hope I haven't forgotten anything, Trina. Your box was HEAVY, the mailman drove it down to our house in his truck rather than carrying it on his regular rounds. THANK YOU again for your sweet thoughtfulness.

Laurel


 o
RE: new: garden decorating rr-august 'for the birds' swap!

OHHH Laurel, I am sooo sorry the shovel was broken, I worried about that one and the way I packed it. I am sooo glad you named one of the mystery lilies lol not even a lily at all. I am soo glad you got your box and are happy with it, I really had fun packing it.

Love ya,
Trina

a scoop n funnel to fill bird feeders (good idea!)
plastic plant markers (came with a marker!)
"dine around" window bird feeder

Goldfinch thistle stock sock (saw my first goldfinch around here this year - we don't get too many of those!)
and a Birds and Bloom special edition magazine

Everything was just perfect, April - thanks for a wonderful box!

RE: new: garden decorating rr-august 'for the birds' swap!

cedarnest... don't worry about the plants! They made it out alive. :) I'm going to jump in later and post all the contents. I know how exciting it is to send a box only to have the recipient not mention it. There have been a number of personal issues going on in my life currently which has kept me from spending any quality time here. I jump in and out to post briefly. That's why I literally forgot that I signed up for this swap. In any case, your box is much appreciated, and will get its time of day. :)

debbya... I'm putting together the last of your items. My goal is to get the box out either by the end of this week or early next week. I'm balancing 60 hour work weeks and Dr.'s appts... it's hard to find time to sleep let alone make it to the post office.

I'm off to another Dr.'s appt. Hopefully, this will end soon.

Ettiquette...??

.
Ok please someone give me some direction. With this being my first RR I am wanting to make sure I get off on the right foot !! At the end of every exchangs/swap/rr ect. Is it proper ettiquette for each person involved to send the hostess a gift? And is that gift to be of the same nature as the event they are hosting?

RE: new: garden decorating rr-august 'for the birds' swap!

Hi ladies! Cedarnest's moment has arrived! She has been very patiently waiting for me to post the contents of her box which, if you didn't already know, has been in my hands for at least 2 weeks. I don't want to talk about my personal and medical problems here, but, suffice it to say, things have not been great, and have been time-consuming. It is for this very reason I am posting pics of her darling box.

Here are the garden-themed chalkboard, plant stick, and birdhouse

The little birdhouse was so cute I had to post a close-up of it!
Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us

Last, but not least, cedarnest sent me two plants that birds love. One was a red trumpet vine, the other a coreopsis. They're both in the ground and trimmed down, so no pics of them until the spring. :)

THANK YOU, CEDARNEST! Once again, please accept my apologies for the long delay in posting. Your box was very much appreciated.

also...

Debbya... your box will go out tomorrow night after work. It's packaged, and ready to fly!
