Amour Valentine Swap Hosted by Cathy Scalise at Treasured Heirlooms


More Amour Valentine Swap photos at Treasured Heirlooms Please go check it out. That is after you look at my post here.  Thank you Cathy Scalise from the bottom of my heart..
WOW All of the wonderful sweet treats from the Amour Valentines Swap.. Almost to much to take in. My swap partner was Elyse from Tinkered Treasures. Elyse makes the most wonderful petite boxes made from matchboxes.. I was the proud recipeant of some of her masterpieces.  She covered a wooden heart box with paper and glitter and filled it with some little trinkets for crafting. Here is what i recieved from Elyse..

Here is what i sent Elyse..


As always i can not get my photos and what i have to say about them in order. I sent Elyse this wonderful Very Large Box.. It is such a wonderful gift in its self. I love vintage items and love to work with vintage items, so i used a vintage spice carosal lazy suzan type thing and painted it all the colors elyse said she loves. I fille most of the jars with trinkets she can use in her Tinkering. I even put stickers on the item that says.. LOVE TO TINKER...
I had some beautiful crochet pieces , one is a valentine pocket in which i embellished with A  blown glass heart, and the other is a crochet collar piece i added a beautiful broach to it.
I sent her vintage greeting cards, vintage buttons, glitter paper,vintage irredesent pipe cleaners,lack of a better word..The blue polkadot ribbon, as i did not mean to have both rolls in the photo.. I added stickers, note pads,pastel oil chalk, glitter pens,ONe of my handmade Diva doves embellished with a vintage piece of jewlery.. She is carrying elyse a goodie bag of glitter and glittered ribbon. Sorry about the double photo.. It was alot of fun doing this swap. The Amour Swap was a learning experience for me as it was my very first one of this kind. Cathy Thank you so much..
