Swapping Joy


I promised photos of the Paris in Spring Swap that I took part in recently. My partner was the fabulous Peta. Now I must admit that I tore the parcel open as usual so there is no wrapping :)))) just can't help myself I am like a kid in a cake shop when I get a swap in the mail. Now I kinda forget the exact rules but the colours were black and white, duck egg blue (my favourite) and something French or connected to Paris. Have you seen such a gorgeous box...I know exactly what I am going to do with it.....it is white with a flocked design in black...oooohhh just love it...






Peta also sent me this cool blue bottle that she decorated with fringing and blue beads....it was filled with freddo frogs (chocolate) which lasted about a minute?...




that gorgeous box was filled with pretty blue shredded paper and it hid so many TREASURES!!!!...like two little lace scented bags...lace, ric rac,



MY OWN EIFFEL TOWER!!!...I am in heaven.....and a tiny Kath Kidston soap



a crochet piece tied with a tassel, and the tiniest porcelain house that was hiding in an awesome venetian mirror box...and finished off with a stunning blue card...which I adore...



Peta you are such a sweetie...I adore it all..thank you sooooooo much....Peta has blogged my swap...check it out here....and there is one more swap that I took part in. The girls from Pretty Chic had a Mothers Day Banner swap...my partner was the hugely talented Julles...we have similar taste so I was guaranteed to love the banner she made for me...oh and I do...I just need to find a fabulous spot to photograph it so you can see just how incredible it is....so keep a look out I will try to get it done soon and show you the special extras she sent me...you are a treasure Julles...
