And a lovely handmade card.....
Thank You Michelle!
Then on Tuesday I received some lovely goodies from Heather of the Patchwork Heart.
We had taken part in a Shabby Vintage Swap organised by Karen at Tilly Rose. This has been my and Heather's first swap and we have been in touch regularly since being paired together, getting to know each other's likes and dislikes.
Looking at the wrapped gifts we sent each other, we share very similar tastes and ideas!
Inside the pretty parcels were:
.........a very pretty and delicate porcelain cup and saucer, carefully wrapped and enclosed in this gorgeous box. Just look at the pretty toile paper lining. The china will look lovely on my dresser.
...... a rose printed tin heart with 'rusty' wire trim and loop. I collect hearts, so I'm really pleased with this.
.......then these vintage print napkins. Very pretty, and useful too.
.......some scrummy chocs. These didn't last long with two children hovering around!!
.........and lastly this beautiful sampler. In her card Heather said she had it in mind for me to hang it in my workshop. However, it will have pride of place in my hall - so everyone can have the chance to see it.
This is what Heather was working on last weekend, and it's so detailed, it must have taken her a long time. I love it!
Thank You Heather!
