Rosette Swap

I participated in a Rosette Swap hosted by Jill at Gypsy Brocante a couple of weeks ago.  Today everyone posts about the swap so you can visit and see all the lovely rosettes that have been traveling across the country and exciting each blogger as she opens up her mail box.  And, I'm not too proud to admit that when I first came upon Jill's beautiful blog a year or so ago I had no idea what "Brocante" meant.  Yes, I had to google it.  For all of you other bloggers "needing to be schooled"'s French for Flea Market.  Now, don't you love the word?!

Anyway-----My Rosette partner who had my name was Polly at Counting Your Blessings.  She sent me not one, but 3 rosettes.  The first one is this lovely pin. It says "Blessings of Gratitude"  How wonderful.  It really is a blessing to be able to be grateful. (and, I am!)

This is a paper rosette on a clothespin to hold notes or messages.  This may go on my refrigerator or in my sewing room to hold pieces of "inspiring tidbits".

Wow!  Look at this beautiful taffeta roseette that was in my box!  It's simply gorgeous.  Looks rather fine on fur don't you think?!

She has these available here on her site in different colors. So, if you'd like your own, hop on over!  It really is very lovely!   Thank you so much Polly!

I had Karen from Some Days Are Diamonds for my partner.  You can check out her blog here to see what I sent her!

I enjoyed this swap so much.  Thanks again to Jill for hosting it!


  1. Oh I love those! Just Beautiful! xoxo

    ;-D robelyn

  3. Gorgeous, will now need to have a fur coat, a fur hat, etc. to pin that rosette to...Ha! Popped over to Karen's to see your rosettes. She was so right...that card was stinking cute. Is that a knit fabric...too wonderful. LOVED your bouquet on the books as well...especially the yummy frayed edges.

    So glad to hear that "calm" is residing once again and that your little ones are feeling better. I signed up for Mary Ann's class and am IN LOVE with this process/technique. I could lock myself away for a month and just cut and sew. But that ain't gonna happen...Have you had a chance to start? Xo, Sue
