Yippee! We received our first ever "Wienie" Valentine!
Wellie was sooo excited!
Maddie of " The Thrifting Sister's " sent the most darling box ever, for my recent Valentine's Swap!
Look at all the details!
I love the vintage lace and buttons plus sweet paper roses!
Of course she totally spoiled me with other things! I couldn't believe all the great things that she sent!
Gourmet Chocolate Hearts, Vintage Cupcake Toppers, Mercury Glass Beads, and a Mother Goose Golden Book that I didn't have!
The chocolate hearts came in both Milk and Dark! And see the vintage Squirrel Puzzle Valentine? There were three more to the set underneath! I'd never seen that style! So great for my collection!
EOS lip balm and even washi tape!
One of the best things was this large book of repro Valentines!
I HEART it so much! lol
And then this is the backside! Or it could be the front because it's decorated just as cute!
I love how she made flowers with the buttons!
Maddie you were such a great partner in this swap! I can't thank you enough for all the amazing things that you gave me!
OK, the sweetest little valentine showed up at my door the other day!
This came from Chris of (A Little Creation). Look at the thatched wood background and the palm print sides! It all fit's together so perfectly with the vintage hula girl image! Cutest ever!
Girls-If you visit Chris's page be sure to go to the bottom and FOLLOW her! She is so darn good at paper crafting...I'm hoping to pick up some techniques! Thank You Chris!
Well I wanted to say THANK YOU to each of you that joined my
"Valentine's Candy Box Swap"! Can you believe that there ended up being 30 of us? I thought I might get a couple takers! LOL I hope you all had fun with it!
A few people have asked if I'll be hosting an Easter Swap. I won't be, but I hear rumors that there's going to be a great one to sign up for soon!
My next swap won't be for awhile, but here is what I'm thinking...
"VINTAGE CHRISTMAS IN JULY"!
Each girl will have a medium flat rate box to fill over the course of a couple months. So when you're out at those flea markets or estate sales and find a little ornament, bring it home and toss it in the box. Or if it's someday in May and you decide you feel like making a little Santa Tag, go for it, and toss it in the box! Cute snowman card at the thrift store for .25? Toss it in the box! :)
If you think this might be something you'd be interested in, you can say so in this post. But this is NOT THE SIGN UP for it. I won't do an official post until mid May.
Keep it in mind though! **I realize that vintage x-mas items aren't super easy to find. That's why I'm giving a few months notice. And some of your things can be handmade! You can also tuck in new x-masy crafting supplies. :)
This might be a lot smaller swap than the Valentine's one! We will see!
