May Basket Swap

I promised to show you photos from my swap with Heidi.
We were set up as partners in the May Basket Swap over at Artsy Mama.

Here´s what I made for Heidi


we decided to put our goodies in a tote instead of a basket
to make it easier to ship - this is the tote I made for Heidi



this is what I chose to put inside





the text on the ribbon means 'Merry Christmas' in Danish



and this is what I received



a beautiful pink tote with a vintage doily on top



filled with lots of goodies
so beautifully wrapped.



a little foil bag with vintage thread, lace and wooden spools
and a  beautiful little canvas with a T, that Heidi created for me.



more lace, pearl, a sweet vintage felt flower in a little vase



a tiny box filled with vintage buttons
and decorated with tiny keys and a beautiful medaillion
and look at those tiny letter 'pins' in the match box.



lots of vintage emphemera
and a sweet cabinet card



old cards
and this beautiful collar.

How about that...
I just love everything Heidi sent me.

Thank you so much Heidi
oh - and Heidi is thinking of hosting a "Tin full of Treasure" swap
so if you would like to join, make sure to pop over for a visit.
