Petite Vintage Spring Jar Swap

My own little bluebird of happiness swooped down on my house via Susan.
I am so lucky to have been partnered with Susan for this swap!  It came wrapped in a piece of cheery vintage fabric, which I unwrapped to find...
a Spring jar creation!
She decorated it completely, front to back...
with flowers spilling over a picket fence, and topped it off with a paper-covered birdhouse.
Then she filled it with all this Springtime goodness...
buttons, beads -- and a necklace of her own creation, strung on seam binding!
Lovely details -- and the sparkly crown is a linen cuff she created!
It was truly a breath of Spring, wrapped and delivered.  Thank you Susan, and Michele, too, for hosting such a fun swap!  As soon as she receives it, I'll show you what I'm sending Susan.
