My pin keep has arrived!

I sincerely loves swaps!
I joined a pin keep swap that Wendy at Ravenwood Whimsies put together.

Patti sent me this wonderful bee skep pin keep! Isn't it awesome?!
Just look at the bee. Adorable!
She also included a little bag of buttons in the package.
I wonder how she knew buttons were one of my favorite things?!

OOooo! Aren't they pretty?
Thanks so much Patti! I love it! :)

Here is the pin keep that I sent to her.
I don't think I'm done making pin keeps! They are just so fun.

Oh they are gorgeous! Never heard of a pin keep before, but now I want one! Just lovely work!

I love your pin keep. I too was in the swap. It was so much fun that I think I will make some more for my sewing room. Everyone who participated had great ideas and they turned out good. I often check at Ravenwood Whimzies just to see everyone's creation.
Have a good day.

very nice! I have 4 pin keeps and each was a giveaway gift. I love them so much. Quite a difference from Grandma's old tomato with a dangling strawberry, huh? Wonder why they ever figured a strawberry should dangle for a tomato?
I love the beeskep. That is darling! Was your heart made from wool? It is very chic. Any woman would love it!

How cute are they! I haven't made any pin keeps yet but it's on my to do list :) The lil bee is to cute! I love buttons also, I think they just look so cool in jars!
