Blown Away By Charms

As you may know, several of us blogging buddies are part of a charm exchange group.  The most recent one I participated in was for the Words, Words, Words swap and look at the beauties I received in the mail.

 

Did Christmas come early?  Santa thought I needed a little "pick me up" and he sure did deliver with this package.  So much great talent here!  It's hard to choose a favorite.  And Erin from Tesori Trovati s really "knocked this one out of the park" with her packaging.  Way to go girl!  Most of the charms are too large for a charm bracelet so maybe I can think of a creative way to incorporate them into an eclectic necklace of sorts.  Hm, I'll have to ponder on that for a while.

And I just have to show you a recent Etsy purchase.  These are from Black Dog Studio and just look at these cute pictures and sayings.
 


I asked them to make the one in the left hand corner especially for my sister.  This is one of her favorite sayings.  Please pardon the bad language.  The rest are for in-laws, music teacher, and my mom which we like to tease and call her the cat lady even though she only has 2 cats.  These will probably be used as tags on the outside of the gifts and they can use them on a keychain or necklace if they like.

Happy Wednesday to you!

  1. I haven't seen the charms yet, but these pictures are making me so excited! I was so worried about the packaging of all things...and then I found those tag cards in my stash at my house as I was packing to move, and wondered why I bought them in the first place. I am so glad that you liked it! Talk to you soon! Enjoy the day! Erin

  7. Leslie,

    I think Christmas came early for you also. Isn't it wonderful to be so uncomplicated (sounds better then simple I think) that the least little thing brings happiness?? :)
