May Day Swap- Part 2

Wednesday, May 22, 2013

Time keeps moving fast--wrap of the the past two weeks..
  • the heat and humidity has arrived in South Carolina.  Uck. Double Uck.
  • Little one graduates from pre-school and summer camp starts next week! They have a cute cap and gown to wear.
  • I still can't believe my little one is going to elementary school in August..sigh
  • The arduous and tedious task of having the house on the market is really starting to wear thin!
  • I really need a summer reading list.  Okay, I've seen several but I want to read fun, fiction, mystery/thriller.  I'm also going to select a classic to read to little one.  I was thinking Alice in Wonderland.  Anyone know of one that is girl oriented with fairies?  Peter pan is out.
  • Researching good quality vegetarian and wheat free blogs and books.  Do you have any to share? some really FUN news to share very soon :) 

On to the May Day swap-- this is what I made for Linda.  She loves aqua and creams, with other neutrals.  I was definitely making her one of my hand sewn poseys.  This one was made from a variety of lace, doilies, vintage tatters, and a bit of a broken earring. 

The basket I hand made from a weathered drop cloth, and an aqua organza ribbon that I pulled off a really really Southern hat.  You know the one's from the 50's that were decked out.

Then I sent several altered items, a hanging one, a metal box, and a cardboard box.  Ribbons, tags, and buttons/bling.

Hope you have a great Memorial Day as we remember those who gave for our country. 
Off for a little R&R---cross them fingers the house will be sold then!
Take care, Kris
