Fall Findings Swap Reveal

I joined a Fall Findings Swap last month......today is the "Reveal Party" from the creator of the Swap at Some Days Are Diamonds ~ go take a peak at all the goodies!!  We had a "secret" partner and had to decorate and fill a cigar box with "well" what else but fall findings!!!!
My goodies came from Barbara at Dogmom Diva ...she made my cigar box into a purse...now funny thing is...I am not a shoe person or a clothes person, but I am a PURSE PERSON....really I LOVE purses...so how perfect was this for me.....and a nice fall cigar box purse, too...woowho!!  It has all the goodies shown, thread, buttons, trims, lace, some wonderful handmade tags and look those little owls...they are bottle caps...thanks so much Barbara...I love it all!!!!


My box I made is sent, I didn't do pictures or it would of been even later then it was......it was to arrive yesterday...I hope it did....I hope she loves it!!

Wow, what a treasure chest you received. It all looks so pretty and vintagey. I know you'll have a lot of fun playing with it.

What a great idea! A purse! Perfect! I love all the tags and little goodies. I just love combing through the little goodies. You always discover something you didn't see the first time around.
Can't wait to see what you sent her. Hope it arrives safe and sound.
have a wonderful Fall weekend!

Very pretty. I love the handle on the cigar box. When I was shopping for a cigar box I found several that already had handles on them, they were lovely too.

Sounds like a fun swap Diane! I love how Barb altered the cigar box into a purse and what she filled it with. Enjoy. Too bad you did photograph the box you made, I would have loved to see it!

This is so fun! Love all the stuff you got and the cigar "purse" is really unique. So cool! Best, Curt
