My first swap partner was the amazing hostess
Karen at Some Days are Diamonds.
Look at all the goodies she found me! Here is a closer look a some of my favorites.
Beautiful buttons! I'm knitting new scarves and I told her I was looking for buttons to embellish them with. These are perfect! I love the purple one.
This Halloween ornament makes me want to start putting up a Halloween Tree.
I had a good chuckle when I opened the box and saw this cute owl pin because I sent her an owl pin too!
Some of my favorite items included these vintage photo's and the Halloween cards. They will be perfect for future projects!
Thank you so much Karen! Not only did you hit the nail on the head with all the goodies, but you incorporated my favorite colors, purple and green. You are so creative and I love the box and how you decorated it, I have to find the perfect place for it now!
My second partner is the lovely
Diana from Roses, Cakes, & Pearls.
Diana added a lot of handmade touches to the goodies which made it super special and personal.
Here are some of my favorite items.
Cute little witch pin!
I love this little apple! I use to have a rubber stamp that had this phrase on it, but I lost it in the move.
Personalized candy wrappers, how cute is that?
Diana made me 2 fabric covered book marks which I desperately needed. I tend to just fold the pages when I'm reading which I shouldn't do, so these will work perfect for me!
I love vintage pin-up girl art and she found me these lovely ones! My favorite is the black and white one with the cat shadow!
But my FAVORITE item that she got me was this beautiful necklace!
It's bowling! It's made on the back of an old scrabble tile and has a silver chain. I LOVE IT! I'm going to wear it to my bowling league next week and see if it brings me luck!
Thank you so much Diana, you really put a lot of time and effort into finding items that are "me".
