It is so like a lovely old hatbox that my grandmother would have had up in her closet way back.
The details are incredible.
So many wonderful millinery wonders.
I love the feathers.
Inside was this sweet vintage ballerina holding three lovely hankies.
check out these darling lace gloves.
I asked everyone to make one handmade thing to put into the hatbox. I love this old shoe form all decoupaged and embellished
I nearly fell off my chair with glee, when I saw this vintage dicky!
In this tiny box there was a head from a frozen charlotte doll.
I learned something with this, as I did not know you could buy the netted pieces
separate from the hats. I got so tickled when I saw this hat net in the original box. I could not have been more excited and happy when I opened the box from Mercedes. Thank you Thank you!
And here is the hatbox I sent to her with the contents . . . . . .
I posted this before, but without the contents.
Here is what I did with the inside of the box, lining it with sewing patterns, and patterned paper.
Some vintage wallpaper pieces.
a teacup and saucer, and a salt shaker with gold glitter vintage trims and vintage earrings.
A little framed piece. I think we had so much fun with this swap. I hope everyone
got their hatboxes in a timely manner and enjoyed it as much as I did.
And then there was the bonus swap from Vintage Dragonfly. A mini card swap with a mermaid theme.
These are the mermaid slide size cards that I made to send in.
And below are the six that I recieved back. there is lots of talent out there with these incredible little
1 x 3 inch cards. Aren't they beautiful?
