Chateau of Remnants recently invited me to join in a swap she was hosting called The Vintage Solstice Swap. Anything with the word "vintage" count me in! I was partnered with the very lovely and talented Jessica of Kids Napping? I'm Scrapping! I was so excited when I opened this lovely box...

I had told her I was 'into' aqua lately-so she went with the aqua and cream theme.... The box was lined with the vintage brown and aqua handkerchief and included all this cream and aqua goodies!!!

vintage lace and crochet flowers adorned vintage bingo cards....

6 ATC cards...she noted that she'd seen my Tablescapes where I used ATC's as place cards and made these for a future Tablescape! I love them and my head is reeling with ideas of an aqua and white Tablescape!! ;-)

..a few vintage playing cards (perfect for future ATC's--I always make mine on vintage playing cards) ~ And look at these darling "book beads"! (Book marks) Great for summer reading--it feels so beachy!

Fun vintage ephemera for my collage art....

This darling little scrapbook--perfect for newborn pics of our first grandchild due in Dec!
And two rhinestone embellished creamers! Lovely for tea parties, or salad dressings at dinner, or holding my roses from my garden.
Thank you so much, Jessica! What a fun swap to participate in!!
