Swap Delights IV

Here is the item that Michelle altered and in which all of the goodies from the previous posts were contained. Look how nicely the can looks hanging next to my dining room curtains LOL!

A closer look at all of Michelle's handiwork.
Look at all the individual bows of ribbon tied to the handle. All that measuring and tying, Yikers!

There is a tea light/votive candle holder on the side of the can.
A close up of the metal pumpkin that adorns the top.

A closer look at all the ribbons that were tied to the handle. The lid has the same blue patterned paper on it, I forgot to take a picture of it. Love this paper, the ribbons, the pumpkin...oh heck, I love it all, the container, the contents and all the hard work that was put into it. Thanks Michelle!

I truly love all the goodies that you took the time to make for me Michelle and the many things that you bought. I will be using the supplies and you will see them in future posts. The hard part will be deciding what to start with first. I guess I'll just have to sit down, ponder that dilemma and eat some of my candy! I am very grateful for all of your hard work Michelle.

The Halloween votive holder was the first thing I bought! I got one for me, too, only mine is a cute skeleton! They are so adorable!
I LOL when I read, "all the measuring" cause I measured nothing! LOL! I just cut and tie the ribbon, and trim if need be!
I love the paint can, and I'm glad you liked it!
Watch your mail box, though, cause an other small parcel is on its way...this is just to make up for the incredible shipping you paid on the paper...honestly, if I would have gone to the PO and found out that price, I would have said "forget it!" and kept the paper for myself!
But I DO love the paper, as you can see by my blog posts, and I LOVED the chocolate only available in Chicago, so I decided to send you something only available in Canada.

Very nice package:) Fun stuff! Halloween is finally making its enterance in Norway seeing the items that pop up in the stores. We have a long way to go before people start decorating houses though. But it would be fun to dress up and get the Halloween fun here too!
