Rosette Swap


I just got my TWO BIG BOXES from my swap partner Caleen!   My friend Misti was here to witness and even join in on the masacre of the two postal boxes.  The swap was hosted by Jill at the Gypsy Brocante (check out my rosette button to see more of the swap)!  Thanks Jill!
There was every type of rosette imaginable!  I love the one in the middle here that looks to be cut from an old quilt.
Look at all the extra vintage jewelry pieces, laces, bag and trims!
This GORGEOUS "Bryanna" necklace is outstanding!
Crazy in love with this lace bag with all the rosettes and bling on the top:)
Check out this scarf she made too!  Leslie came over to see it all and I think she almost snuck off with it!

Thank you Caleen!  You are amazing and my heart is still pounding from your generosity!

BTW   The sad thing is that it was my Gabe's 7th birthday and he saw these boxes and thought they were all his! lol!  He made out like a bandit at his party though!

I sent my partner Lynn .....
a cuff 
 and a couple of brooches.


  1. Wow, Shelley, you hit the jackpot! That scarf is gorgeous! I love the linen looking brooch you made.
