Over the last month or so, I’ve enjoyed collecting items for my swap partner, Stephanie Lewin of TartDeco, as I rummage through estate sale findings and antique store booths. You’re not always exactly sure what your partner will enjoy most, so sometimes you resort to sending items that you yourself enjoy! That was the case with me and the basket I sent this time. I sent some of my faves for creating: Vintage trims, linens, laces, ephemera, bookprint, sheet music, flowers, buttons, etc. I hope Stephanie can make use of them!
I wanted to make sure the small items didn’t all fall out in transport, so I used a basket plastic for the first time. I have to say that using my heat gun to melt the plastic around the basket was very enjoyable to my inner-pyro. Here it is all sealed up and ready to go!
And here are a couple of pictures of the petite basket I already received from that on-the-ball girl! I so appreciate her thoughtfulness in putting together this gift.
