The Fall Intrigues Shabby Tote swap completed.

I recently hosted the Fall Intrigues Shabby Tote swap and ended up with two partners because of an uneven number of players.  So I am the lucky recipient of some great stuff.  Two totes and really cool fall items. First, there are pictures of some stuff which I sent out to my partners.  then I will show you how I got spoiled.
The Shabby tote I made and sent to Kerry James.  I put lots of vintage crochet lace on this crazy quilted bag.
I found these cute ceramic witch's shoe to put chocolate treasures in!
I made each of my partners a smaller slap-happy tote filled with vintage cards, and ephemera
One got a gratitude journal and the other got this Halloween decoration

Each one got a card like this with trims and sequins for fall.
and here is the other bag that went out to Wendy Aspinall.
both totes were filled with goodies like the ones below.


Then I was lucky enough to get this tote from Wendy Aspinall of Bliss Angels
and here are some of the goodies she sent out to me. . . . 
This little mini handmade accordian book!
This is true Wendy Aspinall fashion.  She is so good at this mixed media art!

Don't you just love all this fall goodness, and I have never seen fall leaves done up in paper doilies before.

And Kerry James of Tales of a needle and thread made and sent me this beautiful tote bag.  
Here are some of it's contents.
Kerry truly is good with a needle and thread for sure!  I love pincushions!


These lovely keys and so much more.  She really spoiled me and made such a pretty bag!
I am hooked on blog swapping!  Thanks to both my partners so very much!
