Bella Enchanted's Magic Wand Swap

I was recently in a swap to make a magic wand hosted by Bella Enchanted. It sounded fun and something a bit different. So, Lori, from Morning Glories and Moonflowers, and I were partnered. It was great fun getting to know a bit about Lori and her two lovely daughters. Lori home schools her two daughters. I admire anyone that can have such dedication to their children's education!

Here's the results of our labor and the wand created for me. Lori used a vibrant pink for the base and silver glitter paint. Trimmed in luscious pearls and of course edged in her trademark, those beautiful buttons! She added the delicious wire ribbon with silver accents and glittered the shaft of the wand. Just beautiful!

All that silver glitter! Yummy!

Buttons and pearls - a nice pair, don't you think?

Lori told me she loved the color combination of blue and white, so that was my inspiration for her wand (see below). I love using vintage materials, so I felt that it was absolutely necessary to add the vintage glass drawer pull as the top of the wand. I topped it with a vintage rhinestone pin. The shaft of the wand was painted white, glittered with a stamp design, french blue ribbon, and of course the bling of blue rhinestones. I couldn't leave out her two precious daughters. So, flower fairy wands were in order for them.

Lori and I decided that we would wish for peace and contentment, and of course, good health. So, I added those tags to the wand to remind of us of what's important.

Flower wands for two little girls!

Thank you Lori for making the swap so much fun. I loved your magic wand you created for me and am hopeful you loved the one I created for you, as well.
