4th of July swap~

Well...I've finally gotten everything wrapped up and sent to my 4th of July swapping partner, Heidi.
Here is a sneak peek at everything that is being sent to Colorado~ I found this darling little patriotic dance outfit that will surely be fun for Heidi's little daughter for many years to come....I even painted and mod podged on some silver stars to a wooden hanger.... cute huh? I would like a whole closet of hangers like this! lolI also sent along...a vintage flag, a small crocheted doily, a large crochet table cloth, a vintage army/navy prayer service book......some red,white & blue ric rac, also red, white & blue buttons in a small ginger jar, a china doll holding an American flag, a white metal/wire container with chocolates & mints tucked inside... an old goldtone container with glitter and fun pom-poms tucked inside, a patriotic bandana and a small charm for her son that is going to be born in September. I made a few things as well... two matching 4th of July crowns out of chicken wire for Heidi and her daughter. (I'm addicted to chicken wire lately) They appear the same size, but one is smaller. I also made this patriotic bunting as well. I used sheet music that I painted with watered down paint. I think it turned out cute. One of these days I'll make one for meeeeeeeeeeee...isn't that how it always goes? I also put together this little frame with a little fairy sitting on a nest of rhinestones & beads inside of a vintage bubble frame.I also stuck a pair of fairies sitting on the edge of this patriotic sequined ornament. I glued a pin to the back of the fairies so it can be removed if Heidi want's to do something else with this vintage piece.
I hope Heidi enjoys all of these things that are coming her way~
