Quaint Old Fashioned Doll Swap.......

This doll swap hosted by Cindy form Thimbleprims Studio was a chance to exchange old fashioned dolls with another doll maker...... how exciting!

My partner was Sandy from Sandy's Creations, here's what we exchanged......
A beautiful card that she made.....
Look at all these yummy Valentine goodies...... look at the little heart pan, awwww......
Her doll, great eyes! Look at her skirt....it's a bird cage.....I couldn't get a good photo, but inside were tiny eggs and a charm with the letter "M" on it...so sweet! She is delightful, thank you Sandy!!!

Here is what I sent her.....A blissful angel to hang on the wall....
Lots of ruffled ribbon and papery wings.....
A velvet skirt and tiny buttoned shoes.....
A hanging hand with an old French letter and soft berries........
Hope Miss Sandy enjoyed the swap! Thanks for hosting the doll swap Cindy!
