VACATION, SWAP ITEMS AND GIFTS

I have not posted in awhile, we have been on vacation visiting family in Nevada.
We also visited Arizona and California, beautiful sights and wonderful times with family.I will post more on our trip soon. My winnings from One World One Heart event finally came from across the pond.
This lovely little pocket holder came from Barbara at Vintage Bunty
The handmade pocket is filled with beautiful lace, buttons and trims.
Thanks Barbara!
I joined in on a matchbox swap a few weeks ago. This is my box from my swap partner Trisha from American Honey Home
When I opened the box the first thing I saw was this sweet little nest with the eggs, I love nests.
Inside the box is so many special little trinkets, easter eggs, lace, ribbons, buttons, vintage playing cards, silk flowers, etc.
A beautiful vintage cloth measuring tape, love it!
Trisha lined the box with sewing pattern tissue, fun!
I got so excited to get Trisha's box in the mail to her I forgot to take pictures of her box.
This is the box I made for our host of the matchbox swap Laura. You can find Laura at Decor to Adore
This is the box I received from Laura as a thank you for joining in on the swap. I specially love this bunny on the top.
Thanks Laura!
We had a great time on our vacation and can't wait to go back to see family again.
It was also fun to come home to a mailbox full of fun swap items and gifts.
Did I tell you I LOve a good swap??
Thanks for stopping by.
Have a wonderful weekend.
