Grandma's Attic Swap

I'm so glad I joined in the Grandma's Attic swap hosted by Vintage Dragonfly

My partner Gerri from Its All Treasure Sent me this Gorgeous box
With the prettiest lace and blue flowers!! I Love how she color coordinated with all the blues!

Here's what she packed inside!!! Lace, buttons, stamps, pen nibs, Appliques,
buckles and so much more. So many pretty things just like Grandma had.

Now that I know my partner has received hers I can share it with you here.
Here's what I made for my swap partner Marsha


and what I packed crammed inside!!
 Seriously it was bulging at the seems. LOL
but she Loved it! What a Great swap!!!!

Ohhh, the box you received is just lovely!!

Oh, YEAH, I ♥ my box and all the treasures! You're NOT kidding it was jammed pack! There is a shop in town called From The Homestead and I'm always telling Ruth about these swaps and I look for treasures in her shop so this time I took the box you sent me down to her shop to show her (she doesn't have a computer). She could not believe all you put in there!!!

I'd join a swap if I knew you'd be my swap partner. Oh, but then you'd probably have to be mine and you'd be disappointed. Alas!
