paris swap - for moi

As mentioned in my previous post, I took part in a très magnifique Paris-inspired swap. My two swap partners created and filled the loveliest boxes. Our hostess Heather, really selected a harmonious trio in grouping the three of us!

My inspiration box from the dear and talented Jeanne of Dream, Create, Inspire was wrapped in paper and tied in dreamy tulle.

{All photos are click-to-enlarge}

I have already put the postcard on my memory board and was so happy that Jeanne included one of her beautiful paper roses.

This sugary confection of a box came from sweet Becca of the Pink Girlie Room blog. Swaps can be a really nice way to meet other bloggers.

Becca put together the prettiest assortment of treats in the best colors.

Warmest thank yous, swap partners, I am inspired! And thank you again to Heather.

For more boxes, visit Speckled Egg's Petite Inspiration Swap Box Flickr site. It's truly amazing to see how everyone interprets the same idea in such unique and personal ways.

Wishing everyone a safe, fun, healthy (and yummy) Fourth of July!

Another beautiful swap! I hope to participate in one of these in the future - too hard to do away from home.

Have a great 4th! I'm drinking coffee and packing last minute things - then off to the airport for a full day of flying.

Save me a piece of pie.
