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.

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
