An Odd Ball Request

I know this going to sound crazy...but if possible, I would LOVE very much a teaspoon of "earth" (in a small well sealed plastic baggie or paper envie) from where you live... seriously. I started collecting earth/sand/dirt back when I did Pocket Letters. It's fascinating to me. I have earth from places like~ *Disneyland in Anaheim. *Gem filled dirt from Morenci, AZ. *Rich/dark soil with tiny shells in it from Truro, Nova Scotia, Canada. *Lethbridge, AB, Canada Thank you in advance!!!

JuneRosebud rated for Thrift Shop Find- Fall on Oct 16, 2018
Comment: I don't know what to say except for "Wow"! I was really impressed with what you came up for regarding this swap. I have just begun to be a tea drinker so your thrift store find is just perfect & the pin is nice, too. Your thinking outside of the box was really inventive; thank you so much!!
Response: SO glad/relieved you enjoyed it! Rule #1 "Never send what you wouldn't want to receive yourself." The fall themed items this year sadly fell WAY short. 😞 I had read in your profile that you liked roses & daisies, so I tried to use that as inspiration...hence the design on the tea cup/saucer & pin. Hope you get a lot of use out of them! 😁~Sonia
