From me to you!! My Jar of Love...

What did fly over on the wings of a Rubie Magpie to Rachel @ My Rainbow Vintage Home they wondered?? 


Well wonder no more my lovely reader friends, here are a few pics (apologies for the quality) to show you what I sent over to Rachel as part of our 'Jar of Love' swap organised by Katie over @ Booty-full Things. 

Do you recognise the patterned fabric I have used to create Rachel a pin cushion?? Hmmmm...now where have I seen that before I hear you ask yourself??


 It was originally this dress, found in a charity shop by myself and mini magpie...


It also helped create my handmade item that had to be included in the 'Jar of Love' swap...


I tried to sneak as many bits and bobs as I could into the jar. I popped in ribbons, pegs, a Cath Kidtson keyring, sweets from our past, a vintage tin with a vintage 70s/80s patterned scarf in it that I thought may come in handy as a piece of usable fabric, just trying to think what else?


Oh yes! Buttons that I backed onto old snap cards so they wouldn't escape around the jar...


And then finally, packed this little jar on its way, sandwiched between...


lots of rainbow drops for them all to enjoy!

Thank you again Rachel for my fabulous jar.

  1. Hey well done, and sorry I haven't posted about it myself! Your jar arrived the day before we went on holiday, and I posted yours just before we left. With all the packing malarkey I failed miserably to take photos of either jar, but after marveling at all the treasures you sent me I put them carefully back in the jar so I could take pics on my return - which I still haven't done, boo to me! I love all the gorgeous treats you sent me, that little sewing kit is amazing - the rainbow drops went down very well with the boys too! Thanks again for being such a great swap partner, it was so much fun. Rach xxx
