Several weeks ago I participated in a "jar swap" hosted by Michele at Something Special. My swap partner was Oliva at Oliva's Creative Quest. Here's a peek at the jars we made for each other.
This is the jar Oliva sent to me. Look how pretty she decorated the lid. I love the pink rose and the hatpin...and the colors are perfect for Spring time!
This sweet little bird is my favorite new treasure...it has a beautiful tarnished silver look and the cutest little face. More springy colors....purple ribbon and a purple yoyo. I see a hair bow or two in the future. Charlotte and Penelope will love that! The gold foil hearts will add just the right touch to a paper project I'm working on right now.
Oliva included so many bits and pieces that I can use as I create. String, pretty pictures, buttons and more. I love the little screw with the crystal end.
More goodies to create with....pretty roses and sheet music. Love the butterfly she glittered up for me. I think I have the "winning" ticket too!
Next to my precious little bird....the pink flower above is my favorite. It's just a little thing...see it down by the birdy's feet. It's so full and fluffy...I'm going to try and make some of these for sure. Thank you Oliva....I loved it all!
Here's a peek at the jar I sent to her. I decided to go with a neutral look....creamy vintage lace, with a little bit of bling.
I tucked in some of my favorite things....hoping they'd be Oliva's as well. I'm very happy to say that she loves her little walnut pincushion! I love the photo of the peek "inside" the jar.....I think it looks so neat with the lace showing through. Love the pink chicks too....it just needed a pop of color!
It was great fun!!
