I Thought of You Swap


Okay, honestly, I'm at a loss for what to blog about since I'm just being lazy today. The only thing I've managed to accomplish so far is washing the dog's food/water dishes.....and I didn't think you'd want to see pics of that!

So I thought I'd share with you, the gifts I sent to Elyse from Cottage, for the I Thought of You swap hosted by Stephenie.



Everyone needs pretty vintage wallpapers in their stash.



I included some vintage clothespins because they're a fun, and pretty way to store ribbons and lace.....




.....two pretty china plates....



.....a glass flower frog (and some pretty fabric swatches) that I forgot to take a pic of.....



....pretty vintage bobbins, and ribbon.....



....lavender bottles.....



....and a paper mache box that I decorated with some of her favorite paper, and some of my handmade flowers.



I filled the box with vintage flowers, a hankie, little doilies, and more of my handmade flowers.
I'm still playing with all the pretties you sent me Elyse.
