Etsy Cottage Style Vintage Spring Swap

I was recently part of a swap for Etsy Cottage Style. We did a Vintage Spring Swap and it was sooo much fun. Here are some pics of the Goodies I sent to me Swap Partner Tiff, of Ric Rac Sally. My theme came from answers to questions that she answered, the book I found at a local Antique Mall (I had this book as a child and read it over and over and loved it) called "To Dream To Dance", and here in St. Louis we have an open air Theatre called The Muny. I always envision Swan Lake under the stars there. :) And you know it's Spring when you start hearing the commercials with the Jingle "Meet me at The Muny...The Muny at Forest Park".
Here is an overall view of the items I sent her; The book "To Dream to Dance", Some of my handcrafted cards along with a couple from Natasha Burns (I love her artwork, especially her pretty pink dresses) I decoupaged the hatbox and a letter T for Tiff, some vintage style clothes pins in Pink & Green, a mask I decoupaged and then added sequins & feathers & millinery, Some vintage tatted & embroidered hankies, some postcards that I printed on fabric for her to use as embelishments in other projects, and last but not least some vintage seam binding in aqua & baby blue & some pink, white and aqua sequins and some pink & aqua feathers on a card print out of a vintage set of Mermaid Buttons that I have in my collection.

I had this book when I was a little girl and I can't tell you how many times I read it. I Love this book. I should've read it before I sent it to her. LOL


I will be posting some of the pics of what she sent me shortly. I love what I got, it's like she has known me forever and gave me things with my favorite colors in mind. Pink and Aqua.
