Vintage Petite Jar Spring Swap

I had so fun much creating this altered jar for a spring swap hosted by Michele from Something Special!  We were to decorate an 8 ounce jar and fill it with little vintage things like spools, doilies, lace buttons, sewing notions, ephemera scrapbook embellies, and Easter stuff...and of course, make it special
I love how the top of the jar turned out to be!    The cute leaf ribbon is from my local neighborhood craft store Crop Girls

I made the stick pin with glass beads from some of my leftover jewelry projects.

I found the crotchet doily at our local thrift store.  I had saved it for a special day. 

The butterfly pin was a gift from a swap I had participated, and added more glitter.
Thank you AJ!

I filled the jar with lots of goodies and added a little bit of moss at the bottom of the jar to give it a little touch of spring.

Marie, Spun by Me, I hope you like it!
Thank you for stopping by~
