I got mail.

I got a lovely parcel today which came all the way from Amber over at Life in Color. We did a little swap. So nice t0 get something in the mail, that is not a bill or a statement, blah, blah, blah. Amber has her own online Ribbon store (the Ribbon Jar) so she sent me a lovely selection of ribbons and trims, love 'em. My favourite is the birds trim in the bottom right corner of the photo above. So cute.
She also sent these Needlework magazines. I love old magazines, they have the best ads in them. I was going to share some of the inside with you but blogger only lets me have 5 photos at a time. Maybe tomorrow.
Some fabric to play with.......................
..........and vintage buttons.....................there's also a little journal in the picture below, just waiting for the cover to be decorated and the pages to be written in.
And a clever idea here, Amber made this envelope out of a pretty magazine page. I must make some of these.
Must go now and supervise tea for the little monsters.

Thank you so much Amber, I love it and appreciate everything that went in to this (including the positively outrageous postage charges!!!!!!)

Brenda, I'm so glad you like it! I totally dug that crazy peacock fabric and hope you have fun with it. I'm sure you will you're so darn creative. It's so funny you mention the little envelope. I was so into making them a while ago. I would sit down with a pot of rubber cement and a stack of mags and go to town. I must have made hundreds. I'm getting to the end of my stash so must make more! Swapping was so fun, we might have to do it again after I hit the sales this summer (summer here :)
