The wonderful junque in my trunk.....

I was lucky enough to participate in Junque in my Trunk swap hosted by Heather at Pretty Petals Boutique. My partner was the wonderful Elaine but she doesn't have a blog at this time (but she should!!)....Anyway, this first batch of photos is what I sent to her. The box (trunk) I made has a vintage picture of my grandmother on it.. what a beauty she was (and is - she will be 91 next month!)...I wish I had taken more detailed pics of all the fun goodies that were actually in the box, but I was running late in mailing the package and so it goes...anyway, here is a condensed visual of what I sent to the wonderful Elaine....







And here is the absolutely wonderful and quite stunning "trunk of amazing junque" that I got from Elaine......she truly went above and beyond and I am still in awe of all the unique goodness that she sent my way. She knew that I love anything cat or vintage cat-related and almost everything in the package was cat related...even the vintage cards had cats on them...unbelievable thoughtfulness.....first of all, this is the amazing flower covered box that I first opened...I truly did not want to open it - it was that beautifully put together....


And this is just a few pics of the amazing things Elaine sent me......











This was an absolutely fantastic swap and I had a great time giving and receiving!!

Hi Lolly,
you like all your treasures. Isn't it so fun to see what surprises are inside! You got a lot of nice stuff. That photo of your grandmother is really great on that box, nicely decorated.

Lolly, both you & your swap partner, Elaine, outdid yourselves! Your box to her was lovely! The fact that you used a picture of your grandmother (who most definitely was a beauty!)made your box especially lovely! And both of you were generous & creative in FILLING the boxes! Really fun getting to see what all you swapped!

Lolly, my mom Elaine was your swap partner! The trunk you made her was awesome! What made it even more special was the picture of your beautiful grandmother! As you know, she LOVED all her goodies! I have to say I was jealous of all the vintage goodness she received!

No one else has said it, so I hafta..."Whatcha gonna do with all that junk, all that junk in your trunk?"...Sorry. LOL. The one Fergie song I really HATE. LOL.
Seriously, you got some lovely, lovely things and made some incredible things. Looks like it was a delightful swap!
