A Royal Tiara and Other Swaps

This is the spectacular tiara I received from the very talented Renee. Isn't it fabulous? I told her my favorite color is the very appropriate royal purple. I just love this and have been wearing it all around.
The funny thing is, Renee said she scrapped the first one she made - can you imagine how lovely that must have been?

Many of us have been introduced to the wonderful Laurie and her delightful birds. After seeing several photos, I knew I had to have one for myself. Here is the charming little guy.

This is my She Sells Seashells by the Seashore swap received from Genevieve. One of the little shells was smashed so I'm on the hunt for a replacement. This little piece has inspired a whole new design for my breezeway. I'm going to be working on this "little" project over the summer and hopefully will be able to post the results within the next month or two.

This is the fabulous matchbox I received from Natasha. She got quite a bit stuffed in there! Can't wait to start using some of this deliciousness. The above two photos were taken with my new digital camera! Yea! I won't tell you how long it took me to get those two photos downloaded (and I should be getting ready for work now :))

This is a bad photo of the matchbox I sent Natasha. You can see why I needed the new camera!

What lovely treasures, Karla! The tiara is gorgeous! And the little bird on the spoon is sweet!

(I have a little something I tried to get into the mail last week to you, but my kids have me SO BUSY! I will mail it this week, so with the holiday in the middle, you should be receiving a little surprise by Friday.) =)
