When I hosted my recent Valentine's Candy Box Swap, I wanted it to include non-bloggers as well. I paired Betty S. and Susan S. together, and connected them through email. The ladies' took full advantage of the opportunity to get to know each other across the miles.
Each one sent special things. Things that had meaning, and came from the heart! Here is Susan's candy box for Betty. Isn't it picture perfect?
A vintage brooch adds a sparkly touch!
The inside was packed with ribbons and trims!
Who wouldn't want to receive this pretty box? Talk about fun!
tinsel, lace, ric-rac, even tickets...
I think Betty will be all set for Valentine's crafting next year!
Betty's son Ford (who is legally blind) has an Etsy shop called GemTiques! He made Susan the garnet gemstone pendant because it's her birthstone!
And here is the darling box that Betty sent to Susan! I must admit that I was the tiniest bit jealous of that lace bird!
What a pretty little rose tin!
Until this swap, I never knew there were so many gorgeous vintage Valentine's Hankies!
Wouldn't they be fun to collect?
The vintage postcard with the typewriter is a special one for sure! And look at the beautiful necklace!
Betty and Susan, it was such a pleasure to have the two of you join this swap! You both did a wonderful job, and I sure hope you had fun. I hope you'll be back for another swap sometime in the future!
Friends, please visit Ford's Etsy Shop! He has such beautiful jewelry, including a sterling silver spoon rose ring that I think I need!
