Here are the goodies I sent my swap partner Sherry for the Vintage Stocking Swap.
I Beaded her stocking and added some vintage crocheted laces. And was lucky to find an old hankie with her initial on it. :)
She has SUCH a Beautiful Home . I wanted to make her a few things that would fit in a few different rooms. Firstly, Blues. Soft shabby shades of blue. I made the paper tussie, The vintage wallpaper frame, embellished the tree and strung the vintage mercury garland from a box of antique beads I had. Every girl loves Vintage China, Right ? :)
Next, Cream, Silver and Gold inspired me. I took an old doll and made a cone under her skirt so that she could be a tree topper, or to sit on the mantle. I made her little crown, and tree. Isn't she sweet ? The tree with the bells is vintage, as well as the flapper girl portrait and old cameos. Sherry has a bowl of old cameos, so I thought she might like these :) I also glittered a wooden JOY block for her, because SHE is such a Joyful person :)
And finally Pink !!! I am pretty sure that she has pink in every room. :) I painted her a Pink Rose in a little Rose frame that I shabbied up for her. Made her one of my beaded felt hearts, another paper tussie, and a Pin cushion. The I embellished the pins with a few old Rhinestone buttons I had, and the pincushion with a vintage pearl earring and a glittered soft pink rose. And Finally, I painted a Vintage electric Candleholder pink and added ribbons, rhinestone buttons and vintage millinery and silver glittered leaves.
This was such an absolute Joy and I have made a very dear friend in the process. Thank you SO much for being my Wonderful Partner Sherry !! :)
