A few months ago my friend Carrie Harney posted an idea for a Junque Box swap on Facebook. All you needed to do was reply you were in and away we all went. Carrie sent out some questions for partcipants to answer then matched us all up. So the idea was to dress up some sort of vintage box and fill it with goodies your secret gal would love:) Then to mail it by July 7th.....
Great idea! A few have asked how to get involved with a swap. Well it helps when you have 219 friends on Facbook and 199 of them are "art" friends. Lol;) I may be exaggerating a bit but pretty close! All these gals I have met through classes, events and vintage shopping. The best kind of friends!! So get out there:)
I made for Shawn Street who I met for the first time at Urban Barn taking a Terri Brush class eons ago it seems. My first soldering class that one was:)
If you'd like to see her 'sewing box" I made you can look on my Instagram. I am freckledstar :)
So when I came home from vacation imagine my surprise to see a box in my craft room (my daughter is good;) from Jill Sibbald!! Now Jill is a new friend I met at my last event "Affaire at Downton". She had a vendor table I drooled over for quite some time!! Needless to say I almost peed my pants when I saw it was from her!!
Here we go...........
Couldn't you just die?? Cream and lace!!!
Then I opened it...........
That banner.....I die!!!
All the layers!!
I LOVE that spoon soooooo much!!
Everything was so lovely!! Sweet little dollie. The hardware I can't wait to use. All the little bits and bobs I will totally use. Vintage jewels, YES please! I adore little old books. MOP buttons I can never have enough. Vintage hankies, swoon. The cutest little salt shakers. Again LOVE the "sparkle" spoon, already on my inspiration board! And lastly the little religious pieces perfect for the bracelets I have on my mind:)
Again a million thanks Jill!!
Your "new" friend,
