Christmas In July Swap

I thought since I am in the Christmas spirit I would show you what I sent Jen......
A pretty mercury bell covered in vintage goodies.
A set of 3 vintage candoliers that I covered in glitter, and decorated with more
vintage goodies.....
The tinsel around the base and top will tarnish with time.
An ornament kit to make silver bells....vintage sheet music, Bing Crosby
and a cracker that I made and filled with vintage cupcake toppers and goodies.
A set of 4 cupcakes that I made and decorated with
sweet little Gingerbread Men......
Jen has become such a good friend to me, and I had such fun making these goodies for her.
I hope everyone has a lovely day.
xxoo Valarie
I have added lots of great goodies to my Ebay, so be sure to check it out.

Valerie! Your Christmas in July vintage goodies are all so wonderful! I have always wanted one of those candles but didn't like the plastic. Your idea to glitter is inspiration! May I ask is it a special type of glitter? I have seen so many ideas to take away with me on my visit. Thank you so much for all that you share! Elizabeth

I love love the items you sent out to Jen. You both did such a great job on your swap. Did you get the doorprize I sent out to you. I did not get delivery confirmation on it, so I was just wondering. I am really in the Christmas spirit, so I have to watch it. I need to shift that over to the fall swap.

Hey, I just love the items you sent to Jen. She is very fortunate indeed! I have to comment on the sheet music Santa Claus is coming to town. My mother played the piano and we had that at our house when I was little. It brings back special memories of my childhood Christmas'
