Creating Vignettes, from Summer Roses Swap

Etsy Cottage Style had a wonderful Summer Roses Swap, and I was partnered with the sweet and talented Wanda from Roses in Winter. She sent to me the most amazing gifts. When the package arrived I opened to find beautiful pretties.
Starting here~

Beyond the pretty paper~

To reveal~

You just have to enlarge this picture to see all the treasures including a gorgeous handmade by Wanda journal and tag, Sweet pink tart and cup handmade roses pin cushion, Velvet Strawberry, Darling bud vase and gemstones that hangs and can hold water for a little flower. Again, all created by Wanda. Simply GORGEOUS Lolli Powder Puff, Beautiful blue and green crystal earrings, Satin Rose box, Ribbon and Rose glittered Candle, Crown Frame, Crown and Heart Tussie, Sweet Rose Pillow, Oregon Chai Drink (so yummy and a specialty to her state) and a pretty crisp white cutwork doily. WOW I am out of breath after that!! Each and every gift was wrapped in pretty papers and ribbons too. Along the way she gave me little quotes with the gifts like the first one at the top of this post and also these.

Wanda, I just love it all and this was just the best Summer Roses Swap. You are so talented and I will cherish each and every creation. You can also see the gifts I sent to Wanda by visiting her blog post HERE. As usual I forgot to take pics before I packaged her swap. She was so kind to send me her pics, but I'll let you view them on her lovely blog.

I also want to thank our Hostess Debbi from Marionberry Cottage. Debi not only is a wonderful designer of pretty cottage treasures, but she is also a very talented graphic designer. Please visit both ladies and their blogs. You will enjoy your visit.

Now you know the vignette, display maker in me can't stop here. I already placed some of the pretties in their new home and here is a few pics to share.


See you soon.
Blessings Always,
Celestina Marie

Hi Celestina Sweetie...
Oh my gosh what treasures you received. A beautiful swap this was. I am going to have to stop over to your buddy and see what you sent, I know it was magnificent. Your work is so beautiful.

I think that strawberry is the most yummy looking thing ever and so beautifully decorated with little green stones. How berry pretty.

I love the little pinkeep and the box. I love the use of the black witht he soft pink, it is strinkingly beautiful.

You did a great job ofcourse with your vignettes. So pretty Celestina.

I needed a little lift. I went to the doctor yesterday and they are not going to release me until July 19th. They feel with my asthma and lung problems it is not a good time. On top of that they have taken my voice away too until July 19th. When they told me, I sat and cried. I so wanted to be outside again. I have missed half the summer. All my roses are sadly pretty much gone for the season. I have nothing to gaze out the window and see. Your beauty here makes me happy my friend. Thank you for sharing with me today. You always make me feel so welcome here.

Country hugs and so much love, Sherry

Oh my goodness Celeste... what beautiful gifts! I love each and every one of them, and the little quotes she tucked in for you... you have displayed them beautifully in your little vignettes... those earrings are gorgeous and you will look even more stunning than you already are (if that's possible!) when you wear them! I am off to visit these ladies... xoxo Julie Marie

Dear Celestina Marie,

What a wonderful swap you had with Wanda and just love the gifts you received from her.
The vignettes around your home look gorgeous.
I love the quote, I would rather have roses on my table than diamonds around my neck. I have that written in my journal.
Also I must say, I love the sweet new look to your blog, very beautiful.
I hope that you are having a lovely weekend, dear friend and thanks for visiting me and the kind words.

I wanted to say thank you for your kind and encouraging comments on my "Little Girl Pinks" post. I've received alot of negative feedback (not here in blogville) about wanting to adopt ("At YOUR age (I'm in my 40's) with teenage dumb"), so kind words are a balm to my soul.

Thank you.

Hi Celestina! What lovelies you got in the swap! They are all precious and Wanda is like yourself, a VERY talented artist and extremely creative! I pray your summer is going well and you're getting to enjoy your family and the nice weather. In GA it's been very hot lately, but had two days with some nice rains! Wishing you a great Wed! :) hugs... ~CC Catherine

Oh My.....So many beautiful things!! What a wonderful swap!
I guess I just couldn't stay away for very long. I felt a bit over whelmed & when I think about it I guess it was everything from the cancer to the death of my beloved Uncle Le (I miss him so much)!! But the one thing I really did need was my friends.... Thank you for being such a sweet supportive friend!!
I Love You & You are a Blessing to Me ! !

Hey sweet girl~

Oh I'm so glad you visited me today my friend so I could get a nudge to come back and see you as well!

Your creations are stunning as always. I promise you are one of the most creative, classy girls out there. I always like LESS than MORE and that is why your pretties always speak to me. Never overdone, always just perfect.

It's blooming (wilting) HOT here in Oklahoma. I spent the morning doing 15 shipments and now I want to go to bed! HA! It is too hot to do anything and so I stay inside and create. I don't even want to go junkin' and that is saying a lot!

Ok for to you~
