11  Re: Junk Jewelry Necklace/Bracelet, Round 2 - Gallery in The Swap Gallery by carrieme on: December 13, 2009 08:49:51 PM
Here is the beautiful necklace I received from maehem!

She put so much time and thought into it and wrote me a little note telling me the history of all the treasures.  I loved reading the letter, and finding out that the little key is from her sister's diary! 
She used an antique hinge as the clasp, from a house her family owns.

I love the necklace and it's history...thanks so much maehem!!!!  Grin

This is a shot of what I received.  I had to hide it in my craft room....so to not be tempted  Wink

I'm glad it said this on the back, as I have been doing some Ebay shopping and could have opened it by mistake!

How did you do that??
Then last but not least, a Miss Spink pin cushion:

I received from jl409 today!  She sent an awesome package and it got b=me in the Halloween spirit, now I am ready to decorate!
Here is the whole lot:

I had asked for vintage Halloween and I love what she came up with.  She sent a tine filled with little goodies like buttons, yoyos, Halloween band aids, magnets, stickers and shrinky dink rings.
These are the vintage image ornaments for my Halloween tree

Here is close up of my tin with a glittery moon and black cat on the front, I love the cat image. And a completely adorable Frankenstein pin cushion that I LOVE!

The interior of the tin:

The framed images are actual miniature frames.
She also sent a glow in the dark witch Pez dispenser which my son stole immediately!
Thanks so much for swapping with me!  Grin
