So, it's finally time to share the items I
made & received from the Gypsy Brocante Rosette Swap.
For Missy, I made the following:
a apron using a vintage table runner
I read on Missy's blog that she is a fan of stitching...
so, I knew this vintage table runner would be perfect for her.
I used a vintage doily to create the pocket
and stuffed it with lil' things I thought Missy would like,
pink lace, buttons, millinery, & vintage pin up post card.
so, I figured she probably needed a cute little headband
to wear on the days she goes for a run...
It's nothing fancy... just a thin piece of fabric
I love the way the rosette came together.
And finally, a handmade rosette "pin" that she can attach
to a headband or pin to a sweater.
I forgot to photograph it before
sealing up the package! oops! :)
And I received some very nice gifts from Jennifer.
Unfortunately, a spunky little 15 year old
who looooves to "use my things" has MISPLACED
my camera. eeek!!!!
So, I have no photos. Double Eeek!
Can you guess which Twin I am speaking of???
Maybe Jennifer will post some pics & I can "borrow" them. :)
But I received a very nice typed letter & lots of goodies.
My package included: a hanging metal container with a lovely
black & white silhouette of children playing. She attached a
beautiful pink rose to the upper left hand corner & added a
touch of ribbon & a rhinestone brooch just under the silhouette.
It's perfect for my craft room!
She also included a wooden cigar box that was stuffed with lots
of treasures: fairy silhouette notecards, 2 hankies, lace,
a stran of aqua beads, seashells, a vintage birthday postcard,
and 3 mermaid cameos. (the box was tied with a piece of
fabric & a pretty yellow rosette that she altered.
Thanks Jennifer!!!! I adore it all. :)
