Daylight Savings Time Swap - Goodies Sent and Goodies Received!!

Another fun swap was just wrapped up! I participated in the fun Daylight Savings Time Swap hosted by Kai. My partner was Cindy Owens (she doesn't have a blog but she totally should - she is amazing!!). We needed to create something that was our interpretation of Daylight Savings. I created this collage - it is about a 9x12 board. The lighting on this pic is not the greatest, but you get the gist. Daylight Savings to me means time for Spring, things "bloom"ing, etc.

This is the bottom half of the collage with miscellaneous bits and bobs in the nest of these sweet little birdies...

Vintage children's faces in the flowers (from an old Golden book)...

Of course, I threw in some other fun Easter stuff, a few vintage items, some pretty buttons, etc....

BUT WAIT.......look at the masterpiece that I received from sweet Cindy.......she is a dollmaker (Thimbleprims)......look at what she created for me............I love all things cat and I am now the proud owner of my very own little Miss Kitty ......sitting down she measures approx 6 inches........she even has cute accessories...a kite...an easter basket full of goodies......

Look at the beautiful face that Cindy painted....she also made the dress.....wow!

And as if this sweet Miss Kitty was not the greatest treasure, she also sent me these wonderful items!! Thanks so much, Cindy!! You were a doll :-) to get to know and when you become a famous dollmaker, I can say "well I have the first Kitty that she ever made......signed to boot".

One more pic of Miss Kitty's sweet little face.......
