The Bead Swap Blog Hop

Yesterday I mentioned the bead swap organised by Sarah at My So Called Junky Life and revealed the Pretty Packaging that I made to parcel up my beads for Sarah. (Which, thanks to a certain Curly Scrapbooker, has quickly become a Pinterest favourite. Thanks Jo!)


Today, I'm able to show you the beautiful package that I received in return and, of course, the beads it contained. Since I was partnered with Sarah herself, I knew that I'd be in for a shabby chic treat and I was not disappointed. Just look at that ruffle and those gorgeous rhinestones! *swoon*


Inside, I found the cutest, little birds nests. I wasn't able to get a good photograph of them - because of their teeny-weenyness - but they're sure to be on show at some point! There was also a dinky bag filled with the most luscious beads - freshwater pearls, glass sparklers, rhinestones, cute charms and lovely findings. I'm a very lucky lady!


I haven't had chance to make anything with my new stash, but I'll be sure to share when I do. In the meantime, you might like to pop over to My So Called Junky Life to see photographs of the beads that I sent - because I'm a doofus and forgot to take photographs - and you'll also be able to find links to the other swap participants. I've found some fabulous new blogs to oogle!

    re: your comment on my blog. the little string of lights is a super cute mini USB string that plug into my computer. They never get put away because they are too cute! But I might have to go and raid the Christmas boxes for a few baubles though. This staging takes a bit more thought than I'm used to!
