Swap #2

I'm really starting to like the swapping thing! A few weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to meet Diane at Lavender Dreams! I love her blog and she is the sweetest! and who doesn't love the Mountains of North Carolina where she lives.  She also sews and makes purses like me, just different kinds of purses.  She creates these lovely wristlets and I just fell in love with them.  I admire anyone who would tackle inserting a small zipper in every bag, because trust me, it's not the easiest thing in the world, at least not for me.  I think it's a "patience" thing with me. 

Anyway, I wanted to purchase one of her wristlets for myself.  I always love to own a fellow sewer's creation and love to share the excitement of someone liking your creations!  Isn't that why we do this?

So, Diane and I swapped our purses.  She choose one of my little GRhea Design purses and I choose one of her beautiful wristlets!

Here is my new favorite item....
Isn't it beautiful?  I just adore it.  It is the prettiest shade of green,  one of my favorite colors with this big tan flower in the middle.  She has adorned the center of the flower with this lovely green jeweled button.  I absolutely love it and now I am carrying her purse instead of mine!

After receiving my package and went to remove the tissue paper from inside to "move in" to my new purse, look what surprise was waiting for me inside...

It is the loveliest cameo vintage pin I've ever seen!  She is sitting on a bed of black fur and I absolutely cannot wait to wear her this winter.  She will be so perfect for my coat!!  Thank you Diane, you are one talented lady and I love showing off your creations.

Here is the purse of mine that Diane choose for herself from my inventory!

It is called Pink Satin Roses!  I think I got the better end of the deal.  What do you think?
So, until we meet again, what have you swapped lately?


  1. Well...I will have to disagree with you, my friend! I am sure that I got the BEST DEAL in this swap! I love my precious little purse and it goes with everything I'm wearing this summer! I have HOT PINK on right now! Thank you SO much for 'swapping' with me! You are the BEST! Enjoy your week! Stay cool! ♥♥♥ PS I DO love the mountains here in Western NC! If anyone wants to beat the heat...come here! It's gorgeous!

  2. Win Win situation! Love the cameo. Thanks for visiting my blog...I appreciate it.

  3. All of the purses are adorable! I wish I could sew. Meh!!!

  4. I think the pink bag is lovely and so is that cameo! As Ann above said, it is all win-win! How fun was that swap though!



Talk to me, I promise I will talk back.
