I received a fantastic buttony package from erica_tattoos on Saturday - It was the highlight of my weekend, and here are my pics of what I received - erica_tattoos never disappoints -
so get your wisting and pinterest fingers ready:
First buttony leaves on a beautifully painted tree all on a cute little box, with hinges and a latch:
Next, a picture of the same buttony box with my favorite buttons received (two are clear, four shell buttons, two flower buttons, a glittery leaf, and the detail on the blue ones does not show up enough - all so pretty:
The buttons I received in the button box - again, my favorites are in the upper right section:
AND, a group shot of an owl basket (so cool), more buttons that spell Halloween, oh, and a dog button and kitty button (the two at the top of the button box), the button box, and a buttony necklace (erica included some extras, including the owl basket, because she was kinda thinking we were in the owl swap at the same time! She's so funny!):
AND inspired by a wind chime on my wist, erica created a button chime that is so lovely, I can't even capture how wonderful it is in this picture; it has little pagoda charms, a couple of owl charms, BIRD CHARMS-my all time favorites!, beautiful unique buttons, different pieces of chain, and little tiny charms that look like little sea shells! It is so pretty - I love it - and I don't want to hang it outside - it's hanging in my dining room window, which is right by my desk and computer so I can look at it whenever I please! I cannot believe it's mine, BUT IT IS!!!!
And last, I promise, a close up of the shell at the top, with the little birds on a branch, and it includes a pretty blue button (egg) in their nest!
Remember how excited I was when I found out I had erica_tattoos, well this is why - I knew I would be blessed with such artistic wonder, and indeed I was - erica constantly amazes me with what she creates for her partners - I was so lucky to have drawn her as my partner in this swap. Oh, I could go on and on . . . . Now I just have to finish up my items for her and get them off in the mail this week!
Thank you, Erica - once again, I'm spell bound by your creativity!
