My Swap with Lisa

Hello my sweet friends

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend
and for those of you who celebrate Thanksgiving, I hope
you all had a wonderful time with friends and family.

These last weeks have been quite busy over here
and this weekend was this years last show.
Due to the economics it was a quiet but cosy craft show.
This is my only show in Denmark and
will probably also be next year.

Now - back to the title of the post...

Some time ago my sweet friend Lisa and I
arranged a fall swap and my parcel arrived yesterday
and here´s what was inside

beautiful old photo frames, brown paper bags
and wonderful tissue paper

a beautiful white table tunner, a full role of vintage lace
vintage buttons, a teeny tiny watch, a gemstone,
and two awesome buckles.
I know exactly what I´m going to use these for.

a bunch of metal pieces
and some very cool vintage film spools

more lace and beautiful cabinet cards
and then there were this....

THE most beautiful altered bottle.
I have never seen anything as pretty as this.
I LOVE Lisa´s bottles and are so happy to be
the proud owner of this amazing one

here´s a closeup on the beautiful details.

as usual I forgot to take photos of my parcel 
so you´ll have to pop over here to see
what I made for Lisa.


I´ve reaches 700+ followers
That would be something to celebrate
don´t you think..
so stay tuned for a giveaway
Coming up very soon ;-)

Wishing you all a wonderful day

Tina ♥♥♥

How wonderful to have a friend to swap with! What a fun packet you received. I just finished doing a christmas project with my mom and grandfathers old swatches and clock parts and trays! Bits are so much fun and you received the best.

Hope you are well and have fun creating with those gifts...:).

Lisa is the best! She made a dollhead serving plate and brought it to a blog party I attended in Texas! Of course I got to take the plate home with me! I love it!

Great swap! I can't wait to see what you make out of these treasures!

You have received lots of fantastic goodies from Lisa, dear Tina. I love the gorgeous bottle and everything else you got as well as everything you had sent to Lisa. What a wonderful swap you both had!
Congratulations on 700 followers!
Big hugs to you,

Lisa said...

Yippee! 700 that's wonderful! I think I'm like number 459.
I'm glad you liked your package, even if it was horribly late. Did I leave a note explaining the bags. If not you must have thought, wow what a cheapie putting grocery bags in here! They have a waxy finish to them & look amazing in art. I take a couple everytime I go to buy bagels. I ask of course, if they only knew their bags are in Denmark!

Wonderful! I saw that bottle on Lisa's blog, it is truly amazing. Have fun with your new treasures.

Okay ... so I jumped over to Lisa's blog to see what you sent her. OH MY! what treasures!!! I'm quite envious of that lace book. Now you'll have everyone wanting to swap with you.

You must have been over the moon with all those beautiful treasures she sent you. The altered bottle is just amazing, what a gorgeous piece.

Oh, these are treasures, Tina. Not only because of what they are, but because WHO they are from.
