So, now are you ready to see the closet I received in the swap??
Well, hold on tight
because this is so amazing you may just fall down!!
This is what I saw when I opened the box from Debi
beautiful blue tulle with a vintage enamel and rhinestone pin!
After carefully unwrapping,
I truly gasped
and just stared...
to take it all in
See those little door handles??
they are like old fashioned glass knobs..more rhinestones?
And look at the paper roses and bead stems and tulle
and a golden crown with more rhinestones!!
And I didn't even OPEN it yet!!
O.K...are you ready????????
....................you won't believe it...
I promise you............
HAVE YOU EVER??!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
are you sitting there with eyes wide and mouth open?
Look at the lace dress - handmade!
Do you see the little hat boxes??? handmade!
Do you see the little embroidery hoop with the letter 'M'??
yes...she made and embroidered that teeny thing that is maybe an inch!!
The perfume bottles...made from beads!
Do you not love that little portrait of Louis?
paper roses in a vase
little box and bowl with gems
and are those tiny shoes THE MOST PRECOUS OF ALL??
yes, handmade, teeny versions of paper shoes we made a few months back.
Portrait of Marie
and a parasol....
hand fan, necklaces...yes, yes, and yes
ALL MADE BY DEBI.
even a little journal
This was the most fabulous swap.
Everyone put their whole heart into their pieces
and it showed.
Thank you, thank you,Debi, and your mister
who actually found the two wooden
boxes for her and put them together and cut the little shelves!!!
He's a 'keeper'!
I feel so very, very lucky.
Go on over to Debi's blog and tell her Rella sent you
and see even better photos of this magnificent closet.
