Flea Market Boxes


I really, truly love hosting these Petite Inspiration Swaps.
The latest one was a Flea Market theme.
I love these swaps soooo much, that I put myself in two groups!


These are the four boxes that I sent out.


They are all similarly designed with vintage wallpaper and millinery,
then stuffed with treasures.


So much fun to put together.


Wait until I show you the lovelies that I received!?!?!

(P.S. Just like all of you, I've been glued to the TV for the last week. My heart goes out to Japan. I can't even put it into words. It seems so odd and unnatural to go on with life as usual when something like this is going on in the world. My thoughts are with them...)

How STUNNING! I always want to join these, but I worry my clumsy attempts will disappoint. So I never DO. LOL! It's such a joy to see the ones other people make!

I love these swaps too! I don't know what I like more- making my swap box or getting the swap boxes from my partners. Can't wait for the next one!

I love these swaps, too, Heather! The ones you've made are beautiful.
Thank you for sharing your sentiments about Japan. It does feel very odd to go on with such pain going on around us.

HOW BEAUTIFUL!!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE YOUR BOXES!

The horror that the people must have felt...as hard as it is to imagine...it is miniscule to what they experienced...
