I took part in the greatest SS Swap hosted by Laurel. You can read all about it on her blog - PaperandScissorsRock by clicking HERE. You see the box it all came it along with the beautiful card above. Just look at that box full of stuff!
I hardly know where to begin! There were a bunch of packages wrapped up in bubble wrap, then in pretty tissue paper. And adorned with "Timmy Tattered Ribbon Strips" with messages written on them. So cool!
Even the card was wrapped up and had a message that said to open it first.
THEN I found this little owl! Owls are one of my very favorite things! This is a vintage toothpick holder made into a pin cushion!!! How freakin' cool is that!!! As if that wasn't enough THEN it is stuffed with handmade head or hat pins. The most beautiful beads including some really nice leaf beads - leaves being another of my favorites. I just LOVE this! I'll cherish it forever!
After all of that I'm just now getting to THE BOX!!! Check out this beautiful box!!!
Can you see those little presents wrapped in tissue through the window Here's a look in the top of the box.
And even the inside of the box is amazing. Love this bird image. Just look at that box! So elegant...
Next I found this mini book. Another bird. I love bird art! It's an ATC book.
Check out the inside of the book. It has a bunny and spring ATC and the 7 (yes SEVEN!) ATC backgrounds in the pockets of the accordion fold mini that I get to make ATCs with!
Above is the adorable ATC I got, Check out that cute bunny charm up in the corner. So cute!
Next was this altered mint container. Such detailed adornment - hard to do it justice with a camera. Especially in the Pacific Northwest/Oregon in March when we are having rainy, gray days.
(wonder how many times I'll say cool in this post - everything is cooler than the last!)
I have the necklace on with my beat up old painting sweatshirt! Doesn't really do it justice - the necklace, not the sweatshirt!
Oh yeah...my SS is the WONDERFUL DarcieGlam!!!
Thanks Darcie! You rock! Love ya!
