Do you love regency romance, the age of Elizabeth Bennet, when a look was enough to flirt with someone? Do you love the ribbons, lace, pretty pink and pale blue, the cute hats, the wildflower bouquet? This is a swap for that love the old romance, which seems to be lost in todays society.

This swap is a 4 p swap, 2 p for the box, and 2 p for your item.

For this swap you will have to decorate a box, about the same size as a VHS tape box (it cant be too small) and fill it up with pretty romantic things. It can be filled with bought items, or crafted items, but please stay true to the theme. It will be a romantic treasure box, filled with pretty things.

You will also have to craft a medium thing to go with the theme, or two small things. Maybe a hoop, a tiny doll, earrings, bookmarks... Whatever you choose try to make it your best.

I have been ill lately, and might have forgotten something, if there is anything I should add, please let me know.

Important: my hubby has been permitted to play Star Wars, the online new game, for free this weekend, and since he's using the PC with the internet I won't be able to reply at once, will try to check in at least once a day during this weekend.

Hm . . . I still like the theme, but don't want a box! Haha. Ah well, enjoy it. Smiley (Not sure if I would have been able to sign up anyway, due to commitments and such).

Just sent in my questionnaire. This sounds fun. And it will be right before V-day. 

You can never use too much glitter!
