Lissy Lou's Vintage Easter Swap!
I've had great fun taking part in Lissy Lou's Vintage Easter Swap! I was partnered with Saphy, and over the last couple of months i've really enjoyed browsing her blog, and trying to find bits & bobs that i think she will like - i hope i've managed it! This is what I sent:
A vintage cup & saucer with lovely Spring violets and filled with some yummy eggs;
I'm thinking perhaps the cup & saucer will come in handy for her next tea party, and just maybe this vintage tea-strainer? If not, perhaps just for decoration! Also a small glass jug painted with little blue flowers and filled with yet more eggs!
A handmade "Derek the Dog" felt brooch from one of my favourite Etsy shops - I chose this because he's just so cute, and Saphy loves dogs!
An Easter themed pack of two tea towels, (to add to her large tea towel collection!)and a hand-knitted chick pin-cushion;
And a pretty Vintage tin:
And here's what i got....
A Pretty tin;
Now for a peek inside...;
I've been completely spoilt! I absolutely love everything!! In fact i can't resist opening up the tin and having another look every now & again! Inside was;
A lovely wooden heart decoration! Now i don't know if Saphy knew this, but I love these! It looks fab hanging on my dresser on the opposite side to one I had from hubby for Xmas;
A vintage Easter postcard - I'm chuffed with this!! I've wanted one for my Easter display for a long while and have just never got around to buying one - this is perfect!;
Some yummy chocolate and Strawberry Bear Yo Yo's - I shared these with Mia and we both loved them! She wants me to buy them for her lunchboxes now;
Lemon tea - this is lovely!! In fact i'm enjoying a cup while i write this!;
And this fabulous handmade phone/Ipod case - this is really me, I love it!! Its just what i needed as well!
And finally a Retro 1960's pillowcase! Look at the fab pattern! Now I have a bit of a thing about vintage pillowcases..whenever I see one such as this in a charity shop etc. I just cannot resist bringing it home with me - my airing cupboard is full of them! I use them, or sometimes turn them in to bags and aprons! My favourite in particular are those just like this one - in fact we have a similar one, but in blue, on our bed at the moment!;
Saphy, THANK YOU so very much, what a wonderful swap parcel! I have been very spoilt, I love everything!!
Have a great Easter everyone xx
