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.

I am searching for a lovely way to display the many different sizes, shapes and styles of the hand made gift tags I receive from fellow bloggers during swaps, etc.

There are so many art groups that make and exchange hundreds of these amazing creations. How do you display them so you can enjoy them every day? Would you mind sharing your ideas with me?

I'm in need of some inspiration. Just leave me a quick message here with your suggestions or a link to your blogs with photos of how you display them in your own homes.

Thanks for the help and don't forget to click on the "Follow Me" ---> link for your chance to win my $100 Give-Away. As soon as I reach 500 followers, the lucky winner will be announced.

Thanks everyone!
