I'm so glad you like it all. i had a lot of fun making it and my DH had never seen Casablanca. It was fun sharing that with him.

The paperdolls are from a site called Lianas paper dolls. She hand draws them all.  There is a ton of clothes. http://www.joechip.net/liana/ I totally had  a second childhood going through them all.

This swap was so much fun. Stellou sent in two separate packages. I got one and it is possibly the coolest thing I now own. I left my camera at work over the weekend but I will post pictures as soon as I can.

So Stellou sent me the most amazing package(s), the first part came in an envelope.
It had these cool bookmarks with quotes from "Cat on a Hot tin Roof" my favorite movie with the geougious Liz Taylor and a dreamy mcsteamy young Paul Newman.


Then she sent me a Picturegoer magazine from 1951 featuring A Streetcar Named Desire my second favorite flick (yes I have a thing for the Tennessee Williams movies)! I love love love vintage ephemera. She said she was going to cut it up but didn't have the heart and for that I could kiss her.


Pictures of them filming. This is my favorite schene when he comes home all swaety and dirty from working on cars...mmmm young Marlon Brandow.


It was the coolest thing I owned...until I got this VIRTIGO QUILT. No seriously she made me a quilt based on the movie Virtigo. I'm posting a bunch of pics because it deserves it.



Can you see the swirly vortex quilting?


Check out the amazing rose fabric she used for a border. This is right from the climax of the movie.


and the back


Thank you so much Stellou. This was the best package ever.

Wow what a package!  I love the quilt, and am envying both of you: her for her mad quilting  skills, and you for your possession of her mad quilting skills.  Fantastic!

This turned out to be a really awesome swap and an even better gallery! Everything's so awesome!

I was totally spoiled by justaddcats! One of my favorite movies on my list was Casablanca, and she went all out with it! (Sorry about the quality -- my sister went and loaned my working camera to her friend because hers is broken -- so I had to use my laptop webcam). If you have better pictures justaddcats, feel free to share!



She made me a navy clutch inspired by the ones Ilsa carries in the film (in one of my favorite colors!), a Casablanca notebook for secrets and smuggling important passport documents in and out of the country, a compact mirror with the lyrics to "As Time Goes By", a beautiful handmade card, and a necklace and earring set inspired by the lamps in Rick's cafe!



Close-up of the necklace and the compact. Sorry it doesn't do it justice. Inside when you open the mirror it says "Here's lookin' at you, kid". It makes me smile every time. Smiley


Thank you so much for the wonderful swap package Kate! I love everything so much!  Grin

This has been a great swap gallery! And such a breeze to organize... By my calculations we have one more swapper to receive and this swap is over (please PM if I'm wrong!)

This has been an awesome gallery and a great 1st time swapping experience.  Thanks to everyone for their participation and wonderful inspiration.  I'm going to get so many of my Christmas ideas out of this, I just know it!
