Shelley, that really cute girl of that really cute blog, " Honey Lamb and I" got my name. How in the world she knew I was so sweet I will never know but she must have, because look at the box my rosette came in!! .......... It even has a little bird on it.
The dreamy rosette brooch that was inside was just over the top bee-u-ti-ful!! This gorgeous rosette was made with every fabric I just love, tiny faded roses and denim and ticking and vintage old pearls in the center. See it pinned on my old vintage denim duster stand by coat..........the one I always throw when I am in a hurry and running out the door. This over the top adorable brooch just made this ol' coat good for another 10 years! Woohoo!! Can you say?
Anthropologie eat your heart out!!
I was so thrilled with my rosette swap gift and thinking how I must be the luckiest blogger in the world to get such great swap partners when a few days later another package arrived in the mail. Grabbing it out of the our big country mailbox as we were heading down the road for dinner. What the!...... I thought....because I knew I hadn't ordered anything lately. Opening it up while dining al fresco with Bobby G. at our favorite restaurant, I was in shock. I pulled out not one, but two more luscious rosettes. A loop de loop vanilla flower rosette brooch made from a type of soft burlap. Don't get jealous now ladies. Isn't it fabulous? I think this may get pinned to my cute little petite black leather purse I just bought.
And then I pulled this out of that package................can you hardly stand it?? Isn't that the most amazing cuff bracelet you have ever seen? A beautiful combination of homey shabby denim and elegant luscious soft pink velvet and pleated faded roses and an old rhinestone button with hand stitched french knots and flowers. Wait! there's more ....... a teeny tiny little laundry pin and pretty muted lace. You can't have it! It's mine, mine, mine. :) I will be the envy of every single lady out here in this country county I tell you! Thank you Shelley for your kindness and infectious bubbly personality and all the work you put into this gorgeous swap. I will treasures these TREASURES always.
And I thought I'd show you just a glimpse of what I sent to my partner, Sylvia of My Trinkets blog. I'll let her show you what was inside.
Now don't forget....there is still a few more days to sign up for my give-away right here. I will announce the winner on Saturday's Pink Day along with the most fabulous vintage fairy doll you have ever seen so come on back....you hear? xoxo
