A Sweet Swap!

A sweet blogging friend Marsha (Tattered Chick) and I recently did a personal swap.
We gave each other plenty of time to gather goodies for each other with nothing particular in mind.
We emailed each other with little tidbits and pictures of items we enjoy and were looking for.
It was fun to go treasure hunting and seeing if anything was on the list or if something might be fun to send.
It truly was fun to see what each of came up with ~ I was truly surprised!
Lets see what she sent me ~
I so loved the way she packaged everything up!

Marsha made me a wonderful wall make-do pocket holder for tucking special treasures in along with a vintage Americana postcard. Some wonderful vintage bottles and A Whisk Broom ~ which I couldn't believe that she parted with.  (When we were emailing our favorite things to collect I had put whisk brooms on my list and she told me that she didn't think that would happen ~ because she collected those also ~ I told her that wasn't fair I sent one to her in our last swap) and she even put a crow on it ~ another of her favorites. This broom is going to be cherished for a lifetime!!!

Oh My ~ so Many Wonderful vintage sewing goodies ~ where do I start???
And all of them have found the perfect spot in my sewing room.  Marsha even gave me a jar full of vintage thread spools that once belonged to her Aunt who was an avid sewer ~ It so touched my heart.

More of my favorite things to collect cabinet cards and vintage scissors ~ she so spoiled me!!!

Cabinet card and vintage grater with a red handle ~ boy she nailed this one ~ I collect vintage graters and kitchen utensils with red handles ~ Love It!!!

Vintage blocks  ~ cabinet card and shoe form!!!

Gifts from the heart ~ A card that she made and a Beautiful necklace that she also made!
Thank you so much Marsha they really mean a lot to me...  smile....

and... another cabinet card and some gardeners soap which smells divine!!!

Thanks so much Marsha for all the Lovely gifts!!!
I can't believe how you spoiled me and found so many treasures of all my favorite things to collect.
I will cherish them for a lifetime!!!
Please go check out Marsha's blog ~ She will welcome you with open arms!

We're already planning our next swap!!!
I can't wait!!!

Until Next Time

Cherish your Friendships

Spring Plantings Show!

Is Anybody planning on going to this show???

I am seriously thinking about going to this show ~ it all depends if my niece Niki can get off work.
It's going to be difficult for me ~ I have to work on the Friday night before the show and can't get off.
We would have to leave for the show after I'm done with work and then travel 8 hrs to get there ~ by the time we reach our destination it will be 6 a.m. in the morning.

If anyone has any other info about this show  or if you are planning on attending ~ please let me know!!!

If your thinking about going to this show and want to know where I found it you can visit it here ~ http://springplantings.blogspot.com/

It was a beautiful day here in WI on Sat. so I ventured out and went to my favorite quilt shop ~ Primitive Gatherings to get some fabric for some projects I'm working on.

I also found a wonderful punch needle pattern from With thy Needle & Thread called Berries & Cream.

After that I decided to take a road trip out to Chicken Scratch Vintage and see what Jenifer had ~ I hadn't been out there since last summer ~ it's a fun place to stop!!!
You can keep track of what is going on there on her facebook page ~

Here's some of the treasures I picked up!
Found some old small crates (love to use these in my creative space for fat quarters)
This was stamped on the bottom of the crate.
The box on the bottom is the same box in the top picture just showing you what was stamped on the side of the box.  The top box in this picture we think had a railroad lantern in it.

I also found this wonderful woven rug!

and my favorite finds ~
were the stool, jug and table (I found the little table at the Country Rose Shop)

What have you found lately in your travels??? Please do share!!!

Not much else happening around here ~ just waiting for my honey to come home from his scuba diving trip to Palau

Until Next Time

Treat Yourself Today!
