Button Floozies Fall in Love with Buttons tin swap!

I am delighted to share with everyone my Button Floozies Fall in Love with Buttons tin swap.

My swap partner was Laura Quaglia

Laura & I emailed with one another and shared a bit about ourselves.... boy did she WOW me with the button tin she sent me!

 Plus a lot of other wonderful goodies from Laura -   including a Laura's Original fused glass women's head brooch!

I want to share with you what I emailed to Laura as she
'got me'...

I adore all the thought and details you put into your tin – the old button dictionary definition, the map of Paris, je t’aime ribbon trim, fringed button trim, black & white toile paper, button feet, the Button word discs and the darling clothes pin holding the Button, Button tag… it is so me!

Your petite textile pillow with ribbons & buttons is precious and your original fused glass head brooch is fantastic… I am in awe!  Thank you again so my for my treasures!

It is so wonderful when someone gets the little things that make your heart smile - thank you Laura for my heart smiles!


According to the USPS, Laura should have received my button swap tin today.  If you haven't received it Laura, close you eyes and don't look below until after you get it in the mail

Here is what I created for Laura

 Inside a bit of Parisian flair as Laura also likes Frenchy things

I made a couple of other things for Laura...

Art tag featuring a Eiffel Tower charm and Journal de Paris sheet music with overlay images of a butterfly, Eiffel Tower & Annette Himstedt doll - Laura collects these dolls

Here's the backside with additional doll images

'Thankful Blessings' Thanksgiving card I made using a crepe paper Oak leaf, burlap, lace, paper, ribbons & trim   

This swap was a lot of fun!

Kudos to Laurie of Button Floozies for coordinating this swap!  Great job my friend!!
