I made some new Christmas ornaments from a beautiful vintage sequin and beaded top I found awhile back at a boutique. I've just been waiting for it to tell me what to make. Hee-hee! These remind me of snowflakes. I absolutely love these aqua blue/green color and the glitz of the sequins. They smell so good I scented them with Japanese Cherry Blossoms fragrance. They would make great closet or draw sachets. I plan on opening my etsy store this week and these will be my first listing.
A few weeks ago I was apart of my very first swap when Sarah over at (click the link) http://gypsymermaidlife.blogspot.com/ Majestic Sea Swap, she just so happened to be my swap partner and I sent her a pillow that I made from the same top. OMG Sarah sent me some sweet items, a fabulous glitter sea banner, and this great "T" covered in seashells. She also sent a lovely aqua & seashell frame as well as a cute mermaid figurine. And can you belive it we both sent pillows. She even included a beachy metal tray for a sidetable with shells on it and a hugh sand dollar. You can see the beautiful things she sent me & I sent her here at her blog (click the link) http://gypsymermaidlife.blogspot.com/2009_06_01_archive.html.
Sarah's also hosting a VINTAGE SPOOKY TAG SWAP, see her blog http://gypsymermaidlife.blogspot.com/ for more details. I'll soon be posting more photos of some of the super finds from the past few weeks.
