Swapping goodies...

I know I promised pictures of Paris last week, but I've been soo busy and I'm afraid you won't get to see them today either...

I really need to blog about the lovely package I received in the Button Jewellery swap. I was partnered with Caroline , and these are the wonderful goodies that I received from her:

A lovely button bracelet in gorgeous soft pastels,

a beautiful embroidered cuff with teeny-tiny buttons ( I think this was my favourite),

a crochet brooch,

a brooch made with lovely dangling glass beads,

a hand- bound notebook embroidered with my 'name' and

a sweet box containing lots of lovely buttons!

I also received some chocolate, a lollipop and some sweets which are long gone by now I'm afraid!

Here are the items I sent to Caroline:

I really enjoy these swaps, you never know who you will meet and what you will receive and I love thinking of things to make for others that they (hopefully!) will appreciate. Can't wait for the next one!


  1. I'm loving the paperclip you made! I'm sad and get excited about pretty stationary stuffs. Hmmm.

  2. What lovely swaps! I was wearing the brcalet you sent me earlier in the year only the other day. Pity you missed signing up for my Christmas stocking swap. I hope to orgainse one for Next Easter would you like me to get in touch nearer the time?

  3. Very beautiful things that you made! I hope you get some goodies in return! She is a lucky girl! :)
