Sweet Tweet Swap

Warning: This is a looooong post....filled with sweet tweets! So grab a cold drink, sit back, and enjoy!

I had the privilege of participating in the Sweet Tweet Swap, hosted by the lovely Ele at A Bit of Pink Heaven.

And my sweet partner for the swap was Katie at Rose Breeze Boutique. I had so much fun making and finding sweet tweets.


My gifts to her included this frame decorated with vintage wallpaper, a doilie nest with two sweet bluebirds, and paper roses.....


....a birdhouse covered with lace, and decorated with vintage rhinestone earrings, a millinery flower and a cute little pink bird....


....a paper mache box, painted and topped with a vintage doilie, and my own handmade ribbon flowers....


....and a pretty vintage apron. I also sent her some sweets and a pair of cute chubby ceramic birds that I forgot to take a pic of.

The day my package from Katie arrived, I wasn't home. My hubby called to tell me it was there...I just about went nuts waiting to get home the next day.
Look at all the cute little packages! All wrapped in tissue and decorated with sweet little bows, lace and flowers. *squeal* It was like Christmas morning!!


Look at this sweetest little box, decorated with the cutest vintage card.


Inside the box is a cheerful little note...and some sweet treats.


Then, there's a pretty 'cake' box with one of her beautiful tea roses. I would love to make a lovely cup of tea with it, but then it would be gone.


And look at this pretty assortment of vintage greeting cards. I can't wait to make something with them!


I love this pretty pink bottle she painted. It is topped with a beautiful piece of rhinestone jewelry....


.....and she's painted pretty little roses on it! I love it so!


There's a wonderful assortment of stamens for my ribbonwork. As you can see, I couldn't wait to start using them.


There are beautiful velvet buttons with ribbonwork roses.....


and this gorgeous satin box filled with fun bits and bobbles. Ooooooooh!!


And while I LOVE everything....I think my favorite may be this beautiful vintage style pillow case that Katie made, and hand stitched.


I love the sweet little bluebirds....


...and the beautiful heart with flowers and a ribbon rose. I wish you could see the detail in person. It is truly stunning!!
Thank you Ele for hosting this sweet swap.
And thank you again Katie for the lovely gifts...I will treasure them. Each time I pass by one of them in my home, they make me smile....and I know that the best gift of all is the wonderful, new blogging friend I now have. Hugs Katie!
