For this swap we were to decorate an egg carton and then fill it with fun little presents for our swap partner.
Here's the outside of the decorated carton Cami sent me.
Isn't it beautiful? The vintage image she used is her blog header. I love that! She added lace, tulle, flowers, a button and a lovely crystal tied to the front with lace.
The outside is beautiful but take a look at what was packed inside.
So much to look at! I love the pocket that Cami created with a creamy ribbon, handstamped and embellished with a ribbon and hat pin and a vintage pearl button.
Inside the pocket were several different laces.....
and this wonderful cdv photo. And notice what's holding the photo.....a metal flower frog that I absolutely love!! (Yes it was in the egg carton too). I have a small collection of flower frogs and I was so excited to add a new one to my collection.
And look at this tiny gold cherub standing on a crystal bead! It's such a beautiful piece. I will take really good care of this Cami.
Here are pictures of the other gifts in my carton.
A pocelain thimble
A fabulous soldered pendant (I read Cami's blog and she is new to soldering. You would never know it by the look of this pendant).
A fun bottle cap pendant, personalized especially for me (and look at the beautiful dried roses!)
A strand of "pearls".
Beautiful seam binding, ribbon and flowers.
Wonderful buttons to add to my collection.
And a fun cut glass piece.
Can you see why it was like she was handpicked for me. She included all things vintage that I love!!
Cami, thank you again for the time you put into creating this wonderful gift and for all of your generosity.
I am creating a "blogger's shelf" in my studio to display all of the gifts I have received from the wonderful friends I have met through blogging. This will be front and center!
