Summer Swap

I belong to a group of very talented and friendly ladies. Etsy Cottage Style. Debbie who is in charge is the lady who designed my blog. Another one of the ladies Char started a summer swap and I joined. Char assigned Pam as my partner.We had to swap three things, one a beach scene,one a floral,and one a bird nest. One thing had to be made the others could be bought.

For the beach theme Pam sent me a bag with a Victorian man and woman at the beach. I sent her a box with a Victorian woman at the beach. It is nice to have a partner that thinks like you. I also added shells and trim. For the floral Pam hand embroidered a rose arbor for me with the tiniest stitches I have ever seen then she made a pillow for me with it. It is the perfect color for my house. I made a scalloped edged reversible table topper for her. For the bird nest she sent me 4 gift tags with bird nest on them she had made. I sent her a teacup with a bird nest in it.
On my side bar is a button for Etsy Cottage Style you can click on and see all the beautiful things they do . I know they would love to have you join in or even just drop by to see what new things are going on.
I want to thank Char for putting on such a good swap. Hope we can do it again soon.

Until next time Carol
