AfterLISAhas received my swap package, I now can reveal what I had sent her. She had given me a couple of themes to choose from and I went for the birds. I made a fabric collage for her using a lovely image that DAWNhad shared a while ago.
A name tag had been in my mind and this is what I came up with:
I added some goodies for Lisa to use in her beautiful artwork:
I enclosed a tag
and wrapped everything up, using my bird stamps to decorate the envelopes.
I very much enjoyed working around the bird theme. Of course I will show you what Lisa has sent me as soon as the package arrives.
When I came home from the flea market on Sunday, hubby was outside and saw me coming. "You look happy, so you must have found some goodies" he said. YES, I did! Besides, the weather had been gorgeous and the temperatures mild, so it had been a perfect morning.
These are my finds:
I had wanted such an old large pair of scissors for a quite a while.
You might wonder what this funny looking thing is and why I had bought it. It's a heating spiral of a vintage bowl-fire and it said it want to come home with me to become a part of an assemblage. Well, I have a vague idea already how to use it but I have to work on some more swaps first.
This fish stamp had once been used for nature history education in school classes.
