Charm Swap


Last Saturday a group of friends got together to visit and trade charms. This group (with a few additions and a few losses here and there) has been swapping charms twice a year for the past three years or so. Hosted by Beth and Lisa, formerly of The Salvage Studio, and held in Beth's lovely home, these charm swaps are such a great time. There was a little shopping beforehand in Beth's garage, coffee and sweet treats, wonderful charms and even door prizes for each of us! Here's a sampling of some of the charms we swapped. I have to admit once the swapping got started I forgot to take any more photos but if you'd like to see more just take a look at Beth's blog. Thanks everyone for the gorgeous charms and a fun time and thank you Beth for opening your home to us once again...can't wait for next time!

Wow, I'm impressed. Each of these is gorgeous. It's not often you find so many beauties in one swap. Each of these is a real keeper.

WOW, wonderful charms Linda! I love that outfit you're wearing, unstructured and interesting.

Linda said...

Thanks Jo...and you're right it's a gorgeous outfit but it's being worn with such panache by our host Beth.
