Cookie Cutter Swap

I participated in a cute swap hosted by Deb at the Garage Sale Gal blog.  We were to take an antique cookie cutter and make it into a cute Fall or Halloween decorative item.  I found my cookie cutter at Artichoke Annie's Antique Mall.  Such a great place to find all kinds of fun things!  Check it out if you are in Columbia, Missouri, anytime soon!

Deb sent the cutest box.  Even the colors were fallish and the label was decorated with fall stickers.

 The box was lined with orange tissue paper.  After you opened the tissue, you saw....

This cute subway art for fall!  Then there was a card, a beautiful homemade card! and loads of goodies to unwrap and savor.

 This was what the swap was all about... these darling cookie cutters transformed into tiny works of art.  Here is the one Deb made for me.  I love it!

 Here are other wonderful goodies found in the box, these cute tissues...
 Scented pin, alphabet stickers, fall stickers, a cute hanging flower in fall fabrics, cute push pins, tiny stamps...
 An antique postcard, two darling playing cards with fall scenes on the back...

 This darling can which was filled with candy corn and the cute candy corn M and Ms.

 Isn't this package adorable?  It is wrapped in an old dress pattern.  Loved that idea!

 This adorable metal box perfect for storing a cute pebble or seeds, so tiny and perfect for the small space on my fireplace mantle.

 Loved this darling leaf candle holder and cute fall candle.  I placed it beside Bob's cigar box, and I love that it looks so warm and inviting there!

The sweet cookie cutter is sitting by two wine decanters from Europe that Bob purchased when he was there in the 70s.  They have made it all that time and have been in every house we own.  Love how cute the cookie cutter looks with them!

 Thank you, Deb, for the attention to detail you gave with this wonderful swap box.  I hope you love yours as much as I love mine!
