My Swap Goodies...

Hope you had a wonderful weekend!  When I returned home from a fun weekend away at our family lakehome ...I had some goodies waiting for me!  In my last post I shared about my my first art swap and the piece I made for my swap partner, Michele of Nook and Cranny.  Today I'll share the wonderful goodies she sent me!  My jar arrived in this sweet ribbon embroidered bag!

She adorned the great old jar with a "homemade" tag ...

and filled it with all kinds of goodies for art play...

lots of jewelry fun...

some earrings, an altered bottle cap pin, and a jet beaded tassel...

bits and bobs for jewelry making and assemblage...

lots of butterfly punches from old sheet music...

some spring goodies...

I love this sweet embellished pouch of pearly beads...

and isn't this a fun wired button garland?  I had so much fun with this swap and love my jar of goodies!  Thanks so much, Michele! and thanks again to another Michele...our host of the swap at Something Special!

I am joining Debra at Common Ground's Monday Marketplace with etsy goodies!  Such a fun party!

Until next time...
