a swap actually finished on time!

Pinch me! Did I actually finish a swap on time? I have to admit...I was a little worried since we had to make 16 pages for Dede's swap but I did it! I really enjoyed it too! While working on it, all I kept thinking about was making a journal for myself which I am hoping to do within the next few weeks. But here are some pic's of some of my favorite pages!



You can see more here!

I also got some Valentine items listed in my shop today including some more vintage wallpaper stickers...

These mercury glass ornaments I was going to save for next Christmas but they are so pretty and can still be used for Valentines Day...or any day!

These little velvet hearts I just love. I bought some for myself at an antique shop last year and never put them away. When I went back last week she had them again. The woman at the shop said she buys them from a woman in Pennsylvania who makes them. I'm including a little burlap bag if you want to give them as a gift.
That's all for now folks!
Hope you're all enjoying your weekend...It's FREEZING here!!!!

Hi, I just popped over from a link over at twogirlzstuff. Your blog is oh-so lovely! And...we were in NYC at the same time this year :)

Such charming pages! The simplicity of your designs is very appealing. The swap looks like a lot of fun and the books will be a treasure. It has been a long time since I have participated in a swap. One of my best was a "tip in" swap similar to this one. I treasure the altered book I put together with the swapped pages.

I'm sorry I missed your little velvet hearts, and the mercury glass ornaments, boo hoo maybe next time.

These little hearts are so pretty, right up my alley. I guess these hearts are like your snow balls I got from you, I just can't put them away yet.
