Vintage Stocking Swap Reveal

This season on the Joli Paquet gals and I decided to host a Vintage Stocking Swap with our readers. My swap partner Diane and I had similar tastes, which is always fun. This is the stocking I made for her. . . .
I used white felted wool for the base of the stocking and then added a French Laundry Hanger, lots of tulle and pearly accents and layers of creamy lace.
Along with the stocking, I sent lots of artful goodies.
This organza bag is filled with all things neutral, old and sparkly.
Then I added in some sweet vintage images, flash cards and a handmade shipping tag.
Here's a close up of the tag.
Also a little bag of mitten die-cuts, snowman picks, a sugary candy cane, tiny mushroom and a wee knit mitten.
I threw in a bag of pastel Cavallini Christmas stickers and a pink chenille candy cane for good measure.
I also tucked in a copy of a favorite book of mine on journaling. Swaps are so much fun - it's like having Christmas all year round when you take part in a swap! Tomorrow I'll share with you what Diane sent me!
Signature w/rose

Hello there,
What a wonderful idea to have a stocking swap. I am new to blogging just a few weeks now. I came by your blog while looking at others, I just love your stocking idea. I must say both of you came up with wonderful stocking stocked full of goodies. Hopefully next year I can come across a stocking swap. If you get the time please stop by my new blog and take a peek. Right after the new year I plan on a wonderful give away. Please leave a comment and become a follower as I am trying to get my blog out there so many of you have a chance at the wonderful give away. Happy Holidays and a wonderful New Year to you and your family.

I wished I had participated but could only commit to one and I had already signed up for Heather's mitten swap.
Your kitty should be coming to you any day- she is so sweet I know you will love her. Thank you SO much for participating in our auction. I am beyond words at the kindness of each person who participated.

Sweet blessings to you and merry Christmas.
