Fall Findings Swap
 
Karen hosted a beautiful swap
for the Bloggerette Sorority Sisters.
We were to decorate a cigar box
and fill it with fall findings.

This is the box I created for my partner Joy.


Joy and I share so much in common,
it was fun putting together a gift for her.

I created this tussie mussie using vintage lace and beads,
along with soft yellow roses, pumpkins and some bling.

And the little witch wall hanging was fun to make. he he he!

And, this is the beautiful box Joy created for me!

There's been some serious swooning going on here!



Did I mention I LOVE this box?

And, this sweet image is on the inside of the lid.

The first treasure inside the box was this
positively dreamy cuff she created for me.

And then, I just kept digging and finding more and more......



OMGosh! LOOK at this gold shoe pin!!!
Does that not look just like a Marie Antoinette shoe?  *swoon*



This lovely vintage pin cushion is going
to look so pretty on my sewing table.

I am so over-the-top thrilled with all these beautiful treasures!

Thank you so much Joy!!!

Oh, let's have one more peek at that beautiful box!!!

You both go just OVER THE TOP and are creative beyond belief. MY GOODNESS Joy's box is DROP DEAD GORGEOUS! I can remember picking up a few of those things on our trip or Oregon. She'd walk up to me with her arms full and say "Whaddyathink? I thought for my swap . . . " :)
PERFECT!
Gee . . . uhhhhh ... Debi - I don't think you posted enough pictures or told us whether or not you liked your box! :) (hehehe)
LOVED IT ALL! I am so glad you joined in! I know Joy will SWOON over your box just as well!
Have a great weekend! Do you still have the white stuff or did it all melt? SIgh.

HUGS! Karen
