Fall Findings Swap

Karen of Some Days are Diamonds sponsored a "Fall Findings Swap."  This was great fun for me.  Our partners were to be kept secret until they received their box in the mail.  We were to take a cigar box, decorate it and fill it with Fall things that our swap partner would like.  We had a few hints about their favorite color, decorating style and what type of crafts they might enjoy.  The rest we learned from visiting their blog.  My box arrived before I had mailed the one I made.  I was thrilled with what Marsha of
 Sassy Mini Dolls sent me.

The picture on the box was taken from one of my blog posts.  It took me a second to figure out why it was so familiar, don't laugh, it was really only a second.

Look at all of the great things inside.

I am so excited about everything.

I love the little pumpkin and the harvest sign and will decorate soon and show pictures later.

We were encouraged to put a homemade item and here is what Marsha made for me, I love it.

Another  view of the inside

I love the padded inside top!

Everything is just perfect, Thank You Marsha!

 Now I will show you a few pictures of the box I sent to Barb at Dogmom Diva

I had a great time putting this box together. 
It was a fun swap to participate in.
