HAPPY PINK SATURDAY
THE SECRET GARDEN SWAP and
my "$100 GIVE-AWAY" continues....

Sweet Sarah Elder from mysocalledjunkylife hosted a wonderful swap called The Secret Garden. Inspired by the book written by Frances Hodgson Burnett, Sarah decided to host a wonderful spring themed swap. The rules were quite simple and very fun indeed.

Think vintage, beautiful roses and flowers, pastels, birds, gardens, old lace and rusty old skeleton keys. You can either use a basket or a embellished paper mache box and fill it with secret treasures. The goodies inside can be handmade, vintage, supplies, etc.

I was partnered with the sweet and giving Rachel Knoblich from Chippycottagecharmhouse and what a boatload of gorgeous treasures, vintage and handmade she sent me. Look at the awesome goodies I received.














My $100 contest is still in progress.
