Boardwalk Bragfest

Great News!  Jan @ Bobbypins Boardwalk has brought back her Boardwalk Bragfest.  Anything goes at this Bragfest so link up to the party and let's see and hear what you're bragging about.

This week was an easy "brag" post for me.  A couple of weeks ago I was the lucky recipient of a "just because" gift from one of my blogging buddies, Patti @ Pandora's Box.  I was so thrilled to receive this fabulous gift from Patti and I want to brag about what a wonderful talent Patti has for creating.

Here's the handmade card that Patti included with the gift.  It's a beautiful layered card, handstamped and inked, embellished with little colorful stones, and wrapped with fibers.

Look at this gorgeous box that Patti also created.  This box is the size of a deck of cards.  The box was completely handmade and look at all of the attention to detail.

And inside the box....
Two pieces of jewelry made from dominoes.  The first piece is a beautiful pendant.  I love the combination of words and the image of the woman stamped on this pendant.

And the second piece is a lovely lapel pin stamped with vintage time pieces and embellished with little beads.  You all know I love old clocks so this pin is perfect for me.
The last item in my box of treats was this cute little pillow.
I did a post not too long ago about my collection of game pieces. Patti must have taken note because she made this wonderful little pillow out of "games" fabric, complete with dice and dominoes.
And look at the lock and keys tied to the ribbon (another one of my favorites).
She also added a handstamped tag with a perfect vintage image.
Patti, I can't thank you enough for all of the wonderful gifts! 
Please drop by Patti's blog to check out all of her fabulous projects.

  35. All of your items are SO brag worthy! I especially love the pillow - I collect dice and I noticed the pattern immediately.

    Guess what? I finally found an old oil lamp that would be perfect for displaying a picture (it was missing the globe). Instead of filling it with jelly beans (because Easter will be over so soon) I am going to fill it with sea shells. I have an abundance of them, living near the coast, and I'm going to display a beachy pic of my kids! THANK YOU for the inspiration!
