Karla and Beth’s Birds and Bonnets Vintage Workshop Swap!

I just got my panels today from Karla and Beth’s Swap. I LOVE THEM!! This is my very first swap so this has all been new and exciting for me.

Here are pictures of my panels.

Here is the first side. I was amazed at the all the different expressions using the same vintage images!

I love the way this old lace looks!

I really want a teacup like this now. I just think it's so neat!

I really like the sweet cameo created on this panel. It's so soft and ultra feminine.

This bird is crowned and I love it's regal look!

Side two. . .

The brass fitting on this panel is wonderful!

A sweet little tag.

What better way to find a new milliner than by bird post!

This chubby little bird has the cutest bonnet. I love the French writing.

Simple and lovely!

Another very sweet tag.

I would like to thank the four artists who made my panels. I really appreciate the love and care you put into your beautiful artwork!

4. Debbie Doughty from Random Thoughts From A to Z

Thank you Karla and Beth for hosting such a fun swap!
