All Things Pink

Below is a project I finished recently, it is a "Green" project. I had everything I needed for it laying around the house. I got the idea from Martha Stewart living.
Click on the picture to get a closer look. It is made of newspaper, a knitting needle, half a foam ball, spray glue, glitter and some vintage Christmas foils. It would have been a pretty fast project if my paper cutter wasn't broken.

Another lovely hostess gift for Vintage Pink Christmas Swap.
Kana Conger made this darling mitten ornament and journal for me. I love them!

******************** Vintage Pink Christmas Swap*********************
Hope everyone has sent and received their swaps. If anyone is having problems please let me know. I received my lovely package from Priscila, she spoiled me rotten. I have so enjoyed getting to know her, she is super sweet and makes adorable things.
She made this darling box, it was full of goodies which are pictured below!

Christmas Ephemera, I am going to frame the church scene, I love the colors!

Darling Santa banner, he is hanging in my kitchen!

More fun goodies!

YUMMY, vintage pink milk glass for my collection!
I LOVE pink milk glass, it is not very easy to find:(

Darling Christmas cards which are in my kitchen and I will show that picture in a different post of decorations around the house.

More faves, Sewing trims, pink mercury glass garland, and a vintage pink angel.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this darling tree, she made this too, doesn't it look cute near my button tree:)

Pretty decorated spoon!

A close up of the goodies, some of these are in my printer box.
I can not thank Priscila enough for all the wonderful gifts!

I have had a couple people ask if I am planning another swap and the answer is: I am thinking about hosting one in January! So stay tuned.

Hope everyone has sent and received their swaps. If anyone is having problems please let me know. I received my lovely package from Prisilla, she spoiled me rotten.

I remember seeing those trees on Martha last year and loving them! What did you use for the center spike? Do you have any tips in case I want to try it?

LOVE that pink tree Priscilla made for you! What a great package.

Hey Jen, thanks so much for hosting this swap - had a great time getting to know my swap pal Binda in Australia and happy to have a new friend. I received some fun items and it looks like you hit the jackpot with your swap pal too! Have a great week and looking forward to your next swap!
