May Day Tussie Mussie Swap

Sweet Linda from "A Swap for All Seasons" had an awesome "May Day Tussie Mussie" swap. My partner was one of my dear friends "Dolly" ~ "FromMyCherryHeart". Dolly and I have know each other for several years. As a matter of fact one of her amazing pink boxes with a cherry painted on it has been part of my kitchen decor for at least two years now. If you want one like it, you should visit her Etsy shop. She does stunning work and her items creations are painted with a lot of love and talent.

I have to apologize for being so late in posting the special swap treasures Dolly sent me, as I have not been well. I took the photos when my box first arrived. I did my best, but I have taken much better photos before. I hope Dolly forgives me for not showing off her talent in the best light possible.
Here are a few photos of what I received from sweet Dolly.

My favorite item other than my lovely tussie was the miniature oil painting of my "Pink Fairy Cottage". Isn't it perfect?

Thank you Dolly for all your wonderful treasures and your generosity! I love it all! xo Cathy
