Swaps And Buys ...

I recently met Lynn of The Rose Cottage

On Etsy Cottage Style ning site . She is the founder of this site ,
and we have got to know each other , over the past few weeks .
We chatted about doing a small swap together , as i saw
she had found some gorgeous playing cards that i
was interested in , and here`s my
package of goodies that arrived from Canada !

The cards , vintage seam binding and buttons !
There are some glass ones included , faux antique keys ,
german scrap diecuts .
These will look great in collage work , as i am
always on the lookout for unusual playing cards ,
but never seem to come across any !

So thank you so much Lynn !

I love them all , and you were very generous

with my goodies ! ;o)

Another creative woman i`ve recently found

is Gail of Shabby Cottage Studio

Many of you may know her already , as an

established artist , creating blog head banners ,

digital collage sheets and so much more . She is a

warm , wonderfully creative woman , and has many

items in her shop that i`ve admired .

So , when i saw these sweet cute birds - i

HAD to buy some !!

They are tiny feathered birds on a stem -

which i had not seen in this small size , and

me loving all things feathered , have some of these

now - so i can get creating something with them !

Thankyou Gail so much !!

You have another happy customer here ,

I will definately be a return customer of yours !

I so love reading posts about friends...written by a friend!! The cottage style group is one of the warmest, friendliest groups out there .. I'm so glad we're members!

I love what Lynn sent you -- and I know you will make something incredible with this lot of ephemera!!

And Gail's shop? I'm laughing - of course you will be a return customer..once you've shopped with Gail you are hooked!! It's wonderful isn't it?!? I thought of you immediately when I saw those birds in her shop - glad you got some because I see they sold out quickly (though I think she has restocked).

Glad you liked my little package Carolyn, I loved mine too :) It's nice to do these little swaps isn't it? Hope you like what's in the latest package too :)
Sorry I am so late getting here again, can't seem to catch up lately.
