Dishing & Digging It Link Party #195

This week has been busy so, I only posted about The Traveling Tote Swap

Tales of the Traveling Tote Swap 

Recently the ladies of The Traveling Tote decided it would be great fun to do a The  Taste of ___________Swap.  We were matched up with another member. The idea is to send our partner some local flavors from our area.

I was paired up with Jenna The Painted Apron who is from Alabama.
What a fun gift bag, Jenna made for me.  All things from Alabama. We didn't realize how much we had in common. We both grew up in Southern California and she went to college in Northern California where I reside now.
