button jewellery swap - sent.

here's what i sent to my swap partner Suzy
i made a new button stamp and used it on a small box
which i filled with two antique crochet doilies
a tiny glass jar wich i filled with pretty buttons
the button bracelet and a handfull of shells
Suzy said she liked dark chocolate so i sent her a bar of Thornton's
i don't need much of an excuse to frequent that shop!
i also sent a vintage card of buttons.


suzy collects shells
so i included some that i have beachcombed locally


here is the actual button jewellery part
a double layered and multi-coloured
vintage mother-of-pearl button bracelet!

i think i will make myself one of these!


see what she thought of the swap here
on Suzy's lovely blog

You sure know how to make a good swap package! Still remember the day I opened up the 'favourite colour combination' swap organised by Jessia (Kids Napping I'm Scrapping)...

Yes, that is one good swap package! I read her blog, too, and she loved it and I was envious. I really dig your blog header photo -- looks like what my little guy would come up with after a walk, only I was always the one who got to hold his stuff for him! Long ago. Sigh.
