Hello! I hope everyone had a fabulous LONG weekend. We ended up with some nice weather. I am nursing some rather nasty mosquito bites though. :(
I've been so lucky to receive some lovely mail lately. The first to arrive was my apron from Wendy for Sarah's vintage apron swap:
It's a lovely linen souvenir apron from California! And talk about thrifting kismet, I just sent two similar aprons to Vallen and now I have my very own. Thanks, Wendy! Is this apron screaming barbecue or is it just me? :) I screwed up the link last time, you can see the apron I sent Wendy (for real) here.
Next I received this fabulous book and fabric from Jane:
What a surprise! The book is full of fun vintage childrens crafts including crocheted toys and sweet Peter Rabbit cross stitch. Perfect for me! You can't tell from my crappy picture but that fabric is pink and brown. Jane said she started visiting my blog because of my pink and brown wedding posts. Thank you so much for such a treat! :)
And yet ANOTHER surprise package arrived from Heidi:
Look at this Goodness! Heidi and I share a love of all things Alice in Wonderland and she put together some wonderful things! There are tattoos and a fabulous coloring book from Dover Publications (which Heidi also turned me on to), a lovely vintage flocked Alice ornament and mini deck of cards, a vintage kit for making felt Alice ornaments (I'm so making them!), some Alice stamps and the most wonderful hand stamped tags! I tried to take a picture of them but it just wouldn't come out right. they are gorgeous! Thank you, Heidi. You made my day.
Thank you to everyone for the sweet gifts! I don't know what I did to deserve it but I am tickled with the thoughtfulness. :)
I'll be doing a shop update by this weekend. I've unearthed some more fun vintage notions and fabrics and since I can't keep them all, why not share? My husband is happy that my Etsy funds will support my thrifting habit somewhat lol. :)
