Summer is here, yippeee! I haven't had a minute to post this week. I've been crafting up a storm and loving every moment of my creative time. But there was no way I would miss posting on Beverly's two year "Pink Saturday" Anniversary. Thank you Beverly for coming up with this wonderful, pink idea. I've enjoyed every moment of it each Saturday and intend to participate for many, many, more. I appreciate the hours of time and effort you put into it each week to make it fun and interesting for all who participate.

This week I received the most gorgeous swap treasures from the sweet Michele Wilder of Micheles Treasures. She and I were partners in Linda's A Swap for All Seasons ~ "Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue" Swap. Although the theme had that wedding ring to it, we could send anything we wanted that fit the categories plus one pretty vintage wedding photo.

Michele sent me the most beautifully wrapped packages and inside was a treasure trove of items I will cherish forever. Especially the oval floral glass pin which Michele makes and sells on her Etsy site. And.... that beautiful vintage perfume bottle blinged out with stunning, vintage jewels.

Take a peak below at my stash.

Maggie said...

I love all your pretty pinks, but the perfume bottle is surely my favorite.

So sorry for the belated Pink Saturday visit! I realize I'm two days late (and a dollar short, haha!) but there are so many pinks and so little time over this holiday weekend when relatives are visiting! Happy Belated PS!
