Recent swapping completed

Here are two swaps completed.  I was involved with a crown swap on the Altered Place site with some other gals.  Cissy Prestige was my partner and here are the crowns we swapped.  It needed to be adult size.  How fun was this.  I love crowns! 
 The crown that I created for Cissy.  I used the top of an old spoon and dangly earring to embellish the top, after I glittered it up with german glass glitter.   She said when she recieved it she wore it around the house all day!

 Here is the back of the crown.
 I wanted it to have plenty of bling!
Now here is the lovely crown that Cissy made for me.  It has plenty of bling too!  Ooh I love it!
 And then she sent me all of these goodies to along with the crown.

The next swap was the Vintage Dragonfly's "Oh you beautiful Doll matchbox swap."

I posted my matchbox sent to Mercedes in the previous post and here is the matchbox I recieved from Sandy.  It took me back to when I was little and the Campbell's kids adds, plus she had everything Kewpie doll in there too.  My Mother taught me all about Kewpie dolls as that was from her Era.  Thankyou Sandy for such a delightful little box with goodies from the past.

I adore all of these sweet Kewpie doll and campbell's kids images (ephemera)

Oh You Beautiful Doll matchbox swap

Hosted by JoAnne at Vintage Dragonfly, was this "Oh you beautiful doll matchbox swap."  Here is the altered matchbox that I did for Mercedes Scott.
 The dolls head and arms serve as a drawer pull with sweet things inside.  And pinned to her collar is a little vintage brooch. I enjoyed creating this matchbox so very much!
 The back side

 Inside the matchbox were placed these goodies, some pertaining to dolls or doll parts and other embellishments.  Antique buttons, lace, a thimble and a golden spoon.

Oh you beautiful Doll matchbox swap was so fun for me to get in on and worked my creative senses into a frenzy.  I have not recieved my matchbox yet.  I am still waiting.  I am excited to see what Sandy has created for me.  The anticipation is killing me!
