Mother's Day Brooch Swap






I am here again showing you my brooch swap that I joined in. My swap partner told me she was a real girly girl. So my choice of a brooch had to have a pearl in it. I think pearls can be dressed up and also be worn casual. I took a old jewelry box and decorated it with vintage sheet music and pretty pink material.......I made a soft stuffed heart and pinned the brooch to it. She may leave it on the heart when she is not wearing it and the box can also be used for the safe keeping of the pin. I also sent a few small gifts and I will let her choose if she want's to share them with everyone. I wrapped the box in a vintage doilie and tied it with a pink ribbon. I then hand made a hang tag so she could use for a book mark if she wanted to. I sure hope Holly enjoys this gift as much as I had fun making it for her. Happy Mother's Day!!     HUGS MARY

Oh Mary, I do enjoy my brooch and gifts! They arrived Saturday and I was just tickled with the whole package. It was so clever to lace the doily together that way. And it all smelled so pretty. Thank you so much for all the time and thoughtfulness you put into this swap. Yours should arrive any day now too. :)
Hugs, Holly

The Brooch you gave to your swap partner is beautiful! I look forward to seeing the Brooch she picked out for you as well.
