A little while ago Miriam dropped me a line, to see if I would like to take part in her Festive Swap and of course I said, “Yes please!” It was very exciting when a fat envelope landed on my doormat, all the way from Nashville, Tennessee, containing these little vintage style beauties.
As the light has changed throughout today, I have tried again and again to get a good shot of them. From the murk of the morning, to the brilliant sunshine at lunchtime, all to no avail. That pesky shiny metal defeated me, until the dampness set in at about 3.30 this afternoon and I decided this would have to do.
There was also this tiny tree in a thimble, which I couldn’t resist using to stage my gift box tutorial photo on Saturday. Isn’t it sweet? Thank you so much Barbara, I love them all and can’t wait to put them on our tree, when we put it up in a few days.
For my swap partner, I made a hanging snowflake ornament from stamped images, with a little added bling, in the shape of 30 rhinestones and some silver glitter. There is a ‘show & tell’ post on Miriam’s blog, with a linky list leading to lots of the other participants, if you fancy a peek. There is a fine selection to see.
Thank you Miriam, for a very enjoyable swap. Same time, next year?
