The great goodies I received from my swap partner for the Bathroom theme swap

A carved picture for my wall with the symbol for relax.

2 embroidered towels if you cant tell they have 3 pockets and it says relax with little flowers. The buttons are vintage japanese.

I also got 4 candle holders w/candles with the same relax symbol.

Some milk lotion & body wash & a wash mit.

This is what I sent to my partner.

My partner's bathroom style was antique maps & jungle themes. So I sent her 3 pictures of vintage maps that I made to look antiqued by brushing them with watered down brown paint.

2 crocheted washcloths(started before I knew her theme)

An embroidered bath mat with birdies on one side & 2 non-skid feet on the back.

2 coffee candles with leather tie that I have had forever & was waiting for something good to use them on.

And 3 washcloths. 1 plain & 2 embroidered. One says guest & the other has a corner design.

Can you tell I have been using every excuse to use my new embroidery machine I got for x-mas that I can.......
