Summer Rose Swap 2010

You all saw what Celeste sent me it was and is beautiful, Now you can see what I sent her. Her studio is so pretty and it is black and pink and shiny, so I tried my best to make my swap so it would complement her studio. The black and glitter album on the left is for photos or notes she can add pages to it if she wants. The box by it is Oregon Chi my favorite drink hot or cold, She sent me tea bags, I sent her tea. Below is a closer look, you can see the velvet strawberry, it was placed in the pink satin box right behind it the tiny box has ribbon roses on it. To the right of the tea box is a sweet little pillow, she said she was going to add it to the ones in her guest room.

In this pic below is a close up of the powder puff, it is quite large and meant for decoration more than actual use. It is covered with black and pink ribbon roses and other ribbon flowers. In the mini box by the powder puff is a candle wrapped in pink ribbon and has a rose tag on it.

Above you can see a close up of Marie Antoinette's shoe, I think this is such a fun piece and you can put it anywhere, all paper, glitter, lace,and of course pink.

Above the earrings I made with Swarovski crystals, they are a sweet dainty blue, on silver.

This gives you a good look at the velvet strawberry. It is hand dyed velvet with ribbon ruffles, and the seeds are Swarovski crystal in a soft green.
Well that is it, there were a few more things but this is the best. It was my best swap ever and Celeste said the same about hers. It was so lovely to meet such a beautiful and talented woman and exchange our areas of art and crafting with each other. TTFN

Absolutely lovely things. What a nice swap. It is nice that you can do that and both be happy. Is that because you are sisters? :) I do love your blog.

What an inspiration! I love the velvet strawberries...sounds like a rock band. I want to find a trailer to re-do too. This is just too much fun!
