12 Days of Christmas swap, Day 7

Today's package came wrapped in blue tissue with a lovely postage stamp inspired number.


After carefully observing the number, I saw it contained nearly hidden "sevens" in it. I was so impressed, I had to take photos.


Inside was this very detailed art square with seven swans swimming along on the card. Carol Barker, the creator, and whose blog is Vintage Rose Art and Stuff, did a great job cutting out and decorating all those swans. If my calculations are correct, then 12 times 7 comes out to 84 swans! Way to go, Carol.

BTW, did anyone notice I don't even own a couch from my blog post yesterday? Lots of tables and antiques, but nothing to sit on but one rocker in the "living" room. So, you'll need to sit at my dining room or kitchen table when you visit, because there is no "living" room.

So did you guess my blog pick of the day? Sorry. You're going to have to wait a bit longer. I know it means three posts today, but this final blog deserves a post of its own. Besides, it's the very last one, so it needs to be special, right? In fact, I think I'll have to call it the blog of the year. Keep guessing. I bet a few of you have it figured out from the huge hint I left yesterday.

Oh, Elizabeth. I wondered. Actually, we threw out our livingroom couch, dragged in the dining room furniture, put 2 comfy chairs in the old dining room and enter a zen phase as we snuggle, chat and watch the seasons change thru large glass patio doors. Best thing. Especially as we eat way more than we sit!!! Beautiful swans.
