It's a Wrap. . . Christmas in July Swap is done!

I patchworked Moda/basic grey squares onto a
purchased kitchen towel from India, and used some
vintage trim before adding the felt applique work and
beads.  Then made a cute vintage tag for this.
 
I just wrapped up the Christmas in july Holiday magic swap that was hosted by Something Special.  I had an amazing partner.  And this is what I  sent to her:  I made a couple of ornaments. For this one I used a foil blue leaf, a glass glittered snowflake, cut from my cricut machine, some silver pipe cleaner, and a medallion from K & Company.  Then glittered up a mini tart mold.  
I made another ornament from a vintage snowman ornament and used vintage silver and gold glass glitter. I made a vintage tag and attached 3 glass santa buttons, made another tag and put some vintage and non-vintage trims on it with old buttons, found a plastic bell ornament from the 40's-50's and then found a blown glass indented ornament.
Then I found a couple of silver frame ornaments. Not vintage, but very cute.
This was the breakable item I was so worried about and I guess it made it okay. This is a teapot from Avon about 10 years old.  Scroll down to see what she sent to me.  I had so much fun with this one.
