Partea time swap sent
Well my Partea time swap (risa the Party planners swap) has been packaged sent and received
and all a little early but thats better than late.It was a very fun one to enter,my swap partner is the fabulous Linda co-owner of Lilly Cottage a tiny sweet vintagey crafty sort of shop in Queensland.Check her out and read her post titled only in Australia (a funny,twisted,tragic tale of a day in the life of her little shop)
http://lillycottage.typepad.com/I packaged her Partea swap in a material covered Hatbox with a huge pink bow
i wrapped each present in tissue or tea relate material ,sprinkled with rosepetals and surrounded by teabags such as Russian caravan tea (it sounded so exciting)
I labelled each parcel to spell out ParTea and stole her pics from the lillycottage blog to show
The tags read
P is for Pretty Perpetual calender (Debbie Mumm) A is for Animal picture and artists slide ( a sweet vintage ducks with breakfast in bed picture and a very cool glass slide collage made from a 2 microscope slides and copperfoiling
it is supposed to be soldered till i found i was missing the soldering gene (i have the burns to prove it) and quite possibly i am the worst solderer at least in Australia if not the world.
R is for Rosy mini jug, the sweetest .T is for Teacup (robert Gordon Heaart shaped ) and tray cloth ,E is for embroidered scone cosy, and lastly A is for accessories
The fun and challenging bit was fitting it like a puzzle inside the hatbox. Anyway Linda glad you liked it.I had so much fun doing it and emailing you. I will be back to visit Lilly cottage again im sure.
