Rosettes ~


Today we are showing off our handmade rosettes, with Jill of Gypsy Brocante, as our hostess.
You can click on her blog HERE to visit all of the
rosettes created for the swap. It still amazes me how all across the U.S. women can email each other with info and a week later in your postal mailbox magically appears something beautifully handmade. Well, it wasn't quite that easy but it seems so.

Kathleen of Charm Bracelet Diva made this pretty rosette that I can pin on anything to add charm!


This is what was tucked inside the little box I recieved. Tiny spun sugar handmade rosettes for starts. Little seashell earrings attached to golden tulle. Inside the sweet pin cushion box was this pretty fabric rosette;

Creamy organza ribbon came trickling down.
See the sweet rhinestone pin?





Thank you sweet Kathleen!

recieved this rosette adorned pillow from me:



Don't forget to visit Jill and her blog:
 to see all the rosettes!


(I can't stay away can I? Because of prior commitments I will have this post and another swap. Thanks bloggy friends for being you).

  30. Yes dear one,
    I got behind and have big things happening for me this week so it caused a delay in my posting after I posted my Rosette.

    I do have them on a few pages back on older post, and was working on new ones!
