Two days - two posts!!!

I've given myself a second night off planning for work!

Well it is the start of the weekend and I can always do a bit tomorrow and Sunday.

I blogged a couple of weeks ago about the fab parcel that Pomona sent me for Lucey's button swap. Now that I know that Pomona has taken safe delivery of my end of the swap, I can safely show you what I sent her.
First up...
I bought a couple of these frames ages ago because I liked the limed look of them. I used one to frame a postcard I was given, but this one has been waiting for inspiration so I used it to frame a button heart which I glued onto a pretty backing paper.

A calico bag onto which I sewed lots of pretty little buttons.

A notebook which I also embellished with some buttons and added a ribbon place-marker complete with little heart shaped button on the end.

A lavender scented pincushion.

A vintage tin with the Queen and Prince Phillip on into which I put chocolate buttons, some real buttons and a piece of lace.

I just couldn't resist embellishing the wrapped parcels and enclosed card with buttons too!

I really love swaps, thanks to Lemonade Kitty for organising this one.



  1. What fab things! I absolutely love the Royal tin.

  2. Really pretty - bet she loved her goodies. Have a lovely weekend x

  3. Lovely swap gifts, bet Pamona was delighted. I might have to steal the bag idea.... :)
    Have a lovely weekend x

  4. lovely swap gifts, you have a real talent for putting together goodies that your partner will love - as I did when you were my heart swap partner!

    Hope all is going well with your new job, it is a manic time of year where I am, so much course work to moderate!!


  5. I really love the Royal Tin, I have a thing for them! lol!

  6. It was a lovely parcel to receive - I have only just got my broadband back, so haven't been able to post a thank you, but will do right away. The bag must have taken you hours to do - I really appreciate all the work you put into it.
