A Sweet Chicky: Miss Linda Lou

 My swap partner for Sandy's Easter Swap was "Lady Linda" ! She goes by Linda Lou because there are a lot of other Linda's. Very Cute!
OK- When I opened the box, this vintage Chick Book was the first thing I saw. Can you imagine how happy I was?

 There were two of these huge eggs filled with so many fun things! I finally have one of those yellow birdie clips that are so popular! And look at the tin egg! Oh! And Cotton Candy Pop Rocks!

 I seriously felt like I was 5 years old and had just found my Easter Basket! lol
Look at the vintage Easter Seals! Was she good to me or what?

But that wasn't all! LOOK at the spoolie that Linda Lou made! Isn't it fun how we each did something so different for our spoolies? She used a vintage child's tea cup! I can't wait to bring it out year after year for Easter!
She also sent this darling ducky card by Rust Craft, my favorite vintage card company !

And then to top it off...I finally get my very own vintage "Dennison" Ducky die cut! I've looked at these on eBay for years. Love love love it!
Linda Lou- it's been a joy getting to know you! You're a sweetheart, and I was so lucky to have you as my partner for this swap!

 In other Eastery News: I didn't decorate this year. I'm still at my parent's (for 2 more weeks) and it didn't seem like a good time right before the move. But some how, I've still managed to fill a shelf with rabbits and ducks!
This guy was at one of the shops in town the other day. Such a good deal that I couldn't leave him there!

 This German paper-mache egg was at the thrift the other day! They were up to their (new) trick of marking things "vintage", so it was $4. I couldn't leave it behind though. The Daddy Duck is smoking a cigar, and just look at that little
flock of babies! Ahhhh! Help me!
Vintage Bunnykins baby cup was at the Goodwill for .99!

 I found this very old card at Annie's (my favorite Antique Store ) for $1.

OK Friends, Market Monday is tomorrow! I got up at 4AM and hit a good Estate Sale yesterday morning. The first one of the season...boy it was fun!
It's a little late, but I found some good Easter things. So they'll be in the Market along with lots of vintage children's books/dolls etc this time.

Hope you can make it! 6PM CENTRAL TIME.
