Travelling Treasures

Way back in March, Debbie of Sweet Little Cottage in Australia kicked off a "traveling treasures" exchange.



One of my earliest followers was Susan from Brisbane, so I read every post on her blog. When she asked "guess what I'm making in this post," I instantly fired off a comment "a tea towel."

I didn't even realize I was entering a giveaway (hey, I read blogs the first thing in the morning. I'm not exactly alert at that time!). So I was delighted when a squishy envelop came from Australia!

Look what was in it:


All kinds of fun goodies! Now it's my turn to keep some, add some, and pass it along.

I have this world map


hanging on the wall in my sewing room. I'd love to fill it full of pins to show where my bloggy friends live!

You know I love to shop, so I've collected some cute "Colorado unique" items to send to someone.  If you'd like to receive a "squishy envelop" from Colorado, all you have to do is:

Comment on this post and tell me where you live!  Easy peasy! 

I'll leave the giveaway open until Friday at midnight MDT. Then I'll let the random number generator decide who gets the Traveling Treasures next.
