We have exchanged our boxes for the Vintage Christmas in July swap. Here is what I sent to my partner Deb.
We had to send one handmade ornament and one vintage ornament. Here is the handmade on I did for her. A tussie mussie style Victorian ornament.
I love these wind chimes from the 70's
Inside this wrapped box, was another vintage glass ornament.
Now here is what I received from Garage Sale Gal Look at these beautiful antique Christmas cards and ephemera. I love the little coasters too. I even love the tissue paper she packaged it up in.
Her handmade ornament for me.
Look at these darling vintage cupcake toppers. (Above)
I was so happy to see one of these cinnamon ornaments that we used to make in the 80's and 90's, and it is in the shape of Minnesota. Just love it. Not only is Garage Sale Gal from Minnesota, but so is my hubby!
An assortment of vintage ornaments. I love it all and she spoiled me good! Thank YOU Deb.
Then I made a trip to my favorite thrift store, and I found. . . . . My total came to $10.50
I found a crusty little metal tray, a sweet little iron trivet, a mini glass terrarium, and this wonderful fluer de li glass canister, and a sweet little glass beaded goblet, that is begging to become a pincushion holder. This metal wall pocket.
And I have been collecting shakers and glass bottles that would work well for my mica flakes and glass glitter. I found three the other day. I have had fun looking for the one salt shaker that gets left behind. I had fun filling all of them today, and lining them up in my studio.
