I´ve been working on a privat swap with
sweet Julia
We decided the theme should be Christmas
and this is what I received from Julia

two wonderful ornaments created in fabric and lace
a christmas tree and a star

awesome lace and trim
wonder where she got that idea

vintage stencils
with MY initials - how cool is that
a beautiful doily and an old german book

a bunch of paper Christmas trees
ready to unfold and put up as decoration

vintage buttons
an old rusty hinges
beautiful keys

and what about this
This is the lid of a wonderful tin

and here´s the rest
This tin is so so pretty
I love how it´s decorated

and THE most beautiful Christmas Wallhanger
you cold ever imagine

I told ya`

Thank you SO much sweet Julia
for making this for me.
I can´t wait to decorate for christmas
and I will treasure all your creations forever.
