Elyse Thought of Me



(Okay, so I 'borrowed' your cute title Elyse. hehe) Elyse and I were partnered in a swap hosted by the lovely Stephenie from Just A Little Bit Pink. We were supposed to get to know a little about the other person, and look for gifts that made us think of that person.



This was such a fun swap! And Elyse was the perfect partner.



So, my gift from Elyse arrived today. And I was flipping out from the get go. A little confession here....I am a tissue paper freak. If it's anything but white, I save it all.


When I saw this 'cutest ever' tissue, I ran for the scissors so I wouldn't tear the paper. I know, I probably need therapy.



The gifts could not have been more perfect for me, if I had shopped for them myself. A sweet note, and a post card from Cape Cod. And this vintage doily that is sooo pretty and silky.



The doily and this pretty blue ribbon were inside this beautiful rose covered cup.



And look at these sweet bags filled with goodies! They were so cute, I didn't want to open them.....



....but I had to get to the treasures inside! Fabric, glitter, paper flowers, pretty ribbons......


.....flower images, vintage buttons, tiny flowers, a vintage earring and applique, and pretty pink cabochons are some of my favorite things!



I almost fell over when I saw this beautiful vintage shoe, filled with lace and little silk roses! *squeal*



She also sent me one of her pretty pencil holders, and some of her art clips.



Some of the clips are personalized!









There are yummy teas from Cape Cod.....



....pretty embossed cards.....



....and the most beautiful fabrics from Vintage Lizzie.




Elyse, thank you so very much for these beautiful gifts. I LOVE them all!
Thank you Stephenie for hosting this fun swap.
Blogging has been such a treat....I am always amazed by the wonderful people out there who have taken the time to visit, and support me when I needed it. Thank you all.
