As promised (just a few days late though) I wanted to reveal my lovely beads and boxes I received for the Petite Bead Box Swap last month. It was hosted by Cassandra Van Curen of My Artful Adventures. You can read more about that here. So anyway I had three lovely ladies for partners and recieved some of the most amazing beads and boxes. Here are a few shots of my goodies:
These beautiful beads(above)came from Terry Frias and they arrived in a lovely clear box with a gorgeous aqua ribbon (the box did not photograph well at all) but aren't the beads just amazing? Red is one of my favorite colors and I love the silvers with it. Thanks so much Terry! You can find Terry's amazing blog at Terryfrias.typepad.com
This adorable box (above) was made by Shelley Overholt. Her adorable blog is Honey lamb and I. She filled the box with the amazing beads (above) in pinks and creams with some vintage peices as well. I love the clear crystal heart and the ivory vintage pearls as well! Thanks so much Shelley!
Now Marsha Mees spoiled me with two boxes, one was actually a little paper purse that held the petitie box she made as well. Marsha makes the most amazing dolls and you can find them on her blog at Sassy Mini Dolls Both adorable! the box was filled with amazing pinks, creams and clears, Czech glass, crystals and pearls. She also added a lovely vintage piece of jewlery with pink stones. Thanks Marsha! Everything is perfect!
And a huge THANK YOU to Cassandra for hosting this amazing swap and for providing the petite box tutorial as well! Stay tuned for more pictures of some amazing projects and swaps. Does mermaids and beaches sound intriguing???
