My partner adrienne_bowers received last week. I've agreed to post a few pics of the package I sent. We both love pretty, vintage things so I ran with that theme.

The container was an old wooden bread box that got crafted up with spray paint, decoupage etc.



Here's a group shot.


My crafted items included a charm bracelet, scrabble and domino pendants, an  antique key pendant and some little felt magnets.






some of my favorite thrift-store find whimsies including a nesting doll, a 1940s bisque Nancy Ann Storybook doll, (My partner said she liked old dolls.) this interesting little butterfly box, a handpainted mini teacup and saucer.








A couple other cool vintage finds--
this little mini sewing room decorative box and this homemade apron.





I sent some new things too. Charms, books, buttons etc.

This was so much fun. I love a good whimsies treasure hunt!

Lindy is a FUN partner to have in a swap!  super spoiler!

That is an awesome package.  The tiny shrine is fantastic and I LOVE the little carousel.  That cameo reminds me of the Dark Mark and I noticed lots of tiny gears and gewgaws that look very intriguing...

Lindy, I must know where you got those "jars"- they are just too awesome!

It is called an Advantus Configuration Shadow Box by Tim Holtz.  I ordered these on Amazon but am starting to see more things like them at Michaels.
