Marie Antoinette "Let Them Eat Cake" Swap

I recently tried my hand at hosting my very own swap. The theme is about my bff of course, Marie Antoinette. Ten ladies participated, myself included, and it has been so much fun seeing all of the different interpretations of this theme. I am over the moon with my swap partner Jo from Labour of Love. Papier mache is completely new to her which was a complete shock to me because my box is just amazing! I will certainly love this box for many years to come. Jo, you really need to start your very own shop.

The Eiffel Tower is created with paper to coordinate with my box. It is just divine!If you would like an Eiffel Tower like the one pictured here please contact Jo at for a special order. She is trying to get her business up and running and I'm sure she would love to make one for you.

Jo filled my box with so many goodies! To name a few, a tea cup and saucer, foreign chocolates, tea, buttons, millinery, ribbons, paper, notebooks, Home Companion Magazine, embellishments, lotion, etc....

Jo is the reason why I love swaps! Merci Beacoup, Jo and to all of the ladies that participate in my swap.
