Show your Swap Day!

It is finally time to reveal our Fall Findings Swap from the Bloggerette Society at Karen's.

First I will show what I sent my swap partner, JoAnne from Vintage Dragonfly.

I covered the cigar box totally in fabric. Toile on the top.

Always need to add a touch of lace!
My bow with burlap and fabric...


Gotta have a button!

Touch of Halloween

Lots of Fall


Mini cookie cutters...

Thanksgiving couple...

All the goodies!



What a surprise to find out that JoAnne also had my name. It was a secret you know!


JoAnne sent me this gorgeous cigar box. I am sure it must be old...and it looks square, but it really isn't. The sides flare out.

The gorgeous flower was temporarily attached to the top of the box. It now resides on a pillow...it is beyond beautiful!




A precious sweet note from JoAnne...

Everything adorably packaged.


Sweet teacup with candle...

Inside...what could it be??

A wondeful tag....


and tons of goodies....






Ok, now seriously, I challenge anyone to have a cameo like this.....can you really believe it?


And I don't know if JoAnne knew it, but I am crazy for mini books.....
A wonderful swap! Bloggerettes rule!!

What pretty gifts you received and sent in the swap. Not sure about the cameo. :-D I have some cigar boxes (not old)I need to either do something with or pass on.
Hope you are enjoying the weekend.

You both received wonderful treasures. This swap was so fun to do and I am really enjoying looking at everyone's beautiful boxes.

Such lucky recipients of each others talents...both boxes are full of magic & beautifully done!

I totally spaced on participating in this swap. I think sign-ups occurred when I & my computer were both sick.
I'm having fun seeing everyone's projects, though!!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!
