Gifts for me!

Yeah for getting packages in the mail! Today I received 3 packages.

The first package was a give-away that I won. It's a special 4x4 collage creation by Lia @ Art Junk - It's called 'The Dress Maker' She also included a cute little card of a Godey's Fashion plate print. Fun, and wrapped in wallpaper, what a great idea!



The next package was my Vintage Christmas Swap from Donna at The Fabric of my Life . First was a little card that I loved, it's so sweet -


Donna made me a cute little stocking from 1950s fabric, lined in pink and white polka dots. Each item was wrapped in red tissue paper, and it was alot of fun to open each present.


Inside was a vintage angel on a star, a hanky with blue roses, a painted ornament, a candy Santa, a funny little wooden Santa, fabric covered buttons and pins, a pretty sachet, a scented soap and tealight and a pretty floral pin that I really loved.


The sachet, the pretty pin and the fabric covered buttons.

The next swap is a Vintage beauty Swap - check it out and sign up if you can. They're really fun. I'd love to sign up for this one, but I don't know if I can round up 4 items in time

The last package was a 1950s Simplicity Pattern Counter book that I won on ebay. I haven't had a chance to look thru that yet, but I'll post photos from it later in the week.

Wow, you got some GREAT stuff! The covered buttons are gorgeous. A wonder what you'll do with them?

Hi Carol
So glad that you liked your parcel. I had such fun making it for you. The santa is a sweetie isn't he? I found him in a vintage toy shop here in Devon and couldn't resist him. Have a happy Christmas and a fabulous new year xxx
