Whimsy Jar Swap

Jessica is the gracious hostess of this Whimsy Jar Swap.

Jessica was also one of my swap partners, and this is the French inspired jar I created for her.

Pink, white, and creamy bits and bobs were gathered and packaged in the jar.

Vintage lace, seam bindings, wood thread spools, buttons from the 1940s were just a few of the trinkets included in this personalized assortment.

My second swap partner is Kathy,

and you can check out her blog to see what inspired the bunny theme.

Vintage hand crochet, dreamy old buttons in cotton candy colors,

mini tags, pink plastic clothes pins, and a brass bunny charm are just a few of the goodies I packed into this jar.
I hope you ladies love these half as much as I loved putting them together for you!
Thanks for visiting today,
& enJOY Your Blessings,
Kimberly

Oh Kimberly,
I loved what you made for me so much. I really had to pick myself up off of the floor I was in shock at such a pretty jar.
Your jar for Kathy is so gorgeous. I am sure she loves it, as well.

OMG Kimberly you are soooo talented. I found your blog through Jessica's. I also participated in the jar swap and boy my jars looks like dribble compared to yours. I love the Eiffel Tower you placed on top. Would you be willing you tell us the secret shop you purchased it at. I would love one in my studio.

To answer Tabitha's question and anyone else who may be wondering where I found the cute Eiffel Tower, I purchased these at BallardDesigns.com years ago. I don't think they have them anymore, I sold a bunch out of my etsy shop, but only have one left, which I am keeping for greedy little old me. That sounds terrible, but I hate lying.
enJOY A Beautiful Day,
Kimberly
