Gifts in the Mail

I wanted to share with all of you the great gifts I got in the mail on Saturday.  I received my matchbox from Becky at Rebecca Rose Designs.  It was a swap for Bloggerette Sorority. It is beautiful.  She didn't just send one matchbox, but a double decker!  My pictures do not do it justice.  She put in so many super things.  I love anything vintage and the boxes were full of vintage.  Gorgeous seam binding, velvet ribbon, laces, jewelry. buttons and a  frozen Charlotte.  Everything was packaged so beautifully and came with a very pretty handmade card.  It came wrapped in linen and crocheted doily with green seam binding and such pretty flowers on the bow.  Thank you so much Becky, it was perfect.

Oh, but then there was another box.  It was the giveaway that I won from Kim at Tabby's Place.  It was a wonderful gift.  She had put so many things in the box.  Fabric, paper ephemera, silk ribbon dye, clay, flowers and a CD with vintage holiday pics, just to mention a few.  I can't wait to try the dye and the CD has so many great vintage postcards on it.  Hope you can see everything in the picture. Thank you so much Kim, it was fabulous.


My Sis was here for the weekend.  We had a great time, spent most of it in the studio playing.  I will save that for tomorrow's post.  Happy 4th of July to all my United States friends and happy Monday to everyone else.

Hugs, Jackie
