christmas in july

Once upon a time Glitter and Grunge sponsored a swap.  Well, it was in July.  I participated and finally got my things sent out in the mail to the wonderful Brittany.  She has the cutest blog name too!  Sweet Sassy Molassy.  Cute, huh?  Well she is just as cute as her blog name.  She loves thrifting, crafting, and her family.  My kind of girl.

Here is a little glimpse of what I sent to her.

I got so lucky at a little shop in Auburn.  The owner had the Holiday Greeting tags that I thought was a perfect start for the swap box.  Then I found the handmade snowman brooch at another Auburn shop.  It is on the large side, so I think that just makes it that much more fun!

The Merry Christmas fabric is some that I bought last year.  I just fell in love with the fun retro print.  I made a fun Christmas pillowcase using it and two other coordinating fabrics.

There are bits of vintage ribbon and cards too.  Can you see the poinsetta fabric?  That's one of my vintage handkerchiefs.  I cut it in half and stitched it up making a white Christmas stocking.

Cheerio Brittany!
