This is my box of goodies that Irene sent, all the way
from Australia. Each gift is indivually wrapped and with
a small note and ribbon on each one!
Look at all of my Valentine goodies.....pink vintage
linens, vintage molds, a vintage inspired magnet,
ribbon, cookie cutter, notebook, chocolate, flowers,
and my favorite: the heart garland. Irene made
this garland and I love the fabric and mother of
pearl buttons on each heart. Just beautiful!
Please note this cheap box of candy and read
the box!! "The Key to Enduring Love: Keep
your mouth shut and bring home chocolate".
Not very exciting, huh? So, I took this box and
transformed it into........
.....this! Irene's favorite color is yellow, so I tried
to transform this box into a Valentine keepsake
that she will enjoy. Irene likes vintage goodies,
especially crocheted items. I sent her some
vintage buttons/trim, and also made her a
refrigerator magnet. I altered an old button pat
dish with paper and bling (inspired by Jenni
Bowlin) and it turned out really cute.
I enjoyed altering the bingo card as well. Swapping
really is fun....from the gathering and hunting stage,
to the creating and mailing. It is all fun, but the
best part is making a new friend! Thanks for
Signing off and good night. Kana
