May Day Swap

Well Vickie really spoiled me!!!!My cowboy hat was over flowing with goodies. There were ribbons, beaded fringe,roses. Wallies. Beautiful bunny paper.Silk flowers and pale pink wired basket. Different flavors of teas, Ghiradelli CHOC bar dark raspberry.Emm it was so good!Oh a diamond sparkly rhinestone bracelet. A hand held fan withvictorian lady and pretty roses. A tea cup with roses. Pretty pink note pad paper with a pen in the shape of a dress.And The tea note pad is so sweet.It says things to do after I have tea,and it had a tea bag on the front. Vintage lav ric rac,buttons a crochet doily in the shape of a hanging basket. Thank you very much Vickie.You know me so well!Jen Remember you can click on all pics to enlarge!


Vintage aqua hanky.Love it!


Starbucks gift card.YUMMY!!!!Best thing about the card is theres a Starbucks in the resort I work at,so I don't have to go very far to use this.

The pen and pad set is adorable and the other tea time one is the best.It says."Things to do After I Have tea.Here we have ~~~ My Swap things to Miss Vickie.~~~~~

Here are the pics of the swap items I sent to Miss Vickie.I know she loves teapots and all tea related things.Her kitchen has a beautiful teapot chandelier.So I did her box in pale pink with my favorite teapot fabric in pink.I added pink wired ribbon and glitter.I then filled the box with crafts supplies,such as ribbons ,pearls,tags , a piece of tea pot fabric, and different flavored teas, a hershey bar.After that I thought this little salt & pepper tray set in the shape of a tea set would be perfect for Vickie.So I hand painted my roses to each piece.I also did a little heart box with my roses and added lace.A sachet with lavender.
Thanks for looking and please stop back again.Hope you enjoy,Jen

Wow Jen you got the Mother Load in that swap. I love it all but have to say my favorite is the aqua hankie and the CHOCOLATE. Who can resist chocolate?

Hi Jen! Wow, what perfect goodies Vickie sent you. Love the color of that hanky, the novel idea of putting all into the hat! and also love that adorable little flower bear! Isn't she just a fantastic swap partner?

I had to giggle when I saw how you had spread all your goodies out on the floor ~ just like my granddaughter always does on Christmas morning with all her stocking goodies!

Your swap items for Vic were right on the money! I know she loves all the wonderful teapot goodies you gave & painted just for her. That box & the s&p shakers are just over the top gorgeous!

Big Hugs,
