Something Old, Something .......

I participated in Linda's Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue Swap and Stephanie was my partner. I am so far behind in posting this, sorry Stephanie, my pictures turned out really bad!

Stephanie sent me a bag with some old sewing pins in it, some pretty cards, clips and yo-yo's, a pretty vintage hankie that she made into a sachet and it was put in a pink box with a daisy on it, some postcards with some pretty blue flowers, a necklace with a "S" on it and a neat wedding photo. Thank you so much Stephanie for everything you sent! I love the sachet and it goes perfect with my hankies collection!

I made her a Tussie out of a vintage hankie and my sister, Robyn, let me "borrow" the roses and the rose petals that are in the other bag. Thanks Robby!

I used the wedding images to make cards that can be used for weddings or anniversarys and included some little inserts and confetti. I made a couple of other things, but my camera is only working when it wants to. Stephanie has some gorgeous pictures on her blog, so make sure you go check them out and say hi to her!

Thanks Linda for a fun swap and Stephanie for being such a great swap partner! I had fun with this one!

Dear Sherry, (Year of enchantment partner) I am really sorry that I have not contacted you. I could not find an email address in your info that was sent to me, so I am hoping you get this. I have been away from home for quite a while with my daughter helping in her little family with a brand new baby. I am ready however to send out my box to you this week sometime. I hope you will like it. Please contact me and I will try to contact you through email from your blog, but that doesn't always work out for me. Your partner Michele Askeroth

My DIL made this up using the pictures of my 5 oldest boys. So funny!
