One of the great things about this blog thing, especially amongst crafters, is all the giving and trading and swapping of goodies that goes on.
This month I participated in the Happy Miscellany Swap hosted by the gals at Domestic Bliss. I was a little late getting my package off to miss Jenn (and forgot to take pictures,) but hopefully she will love all the bits and pieces I sent, and be inspired!
Bristol from Cottage by the River sent me my package, and I couldn't feel more spoiled!
It is no secret that I love old things, I always have really. Even as a kid I loved to garage sale with my mom, hunting for vintage clothes, or cool things for my room. I always loved going through the old pictures and clothing at my grandmothers homes.
Today I am so grateful for not only Old Things, but also for all the other people out there who love them too. Customers, blog and non-blog friends, family members, even my kids. I love both giving and receiving vintage gifts because I feel like it is really like having 2 gifts in one - the gift itself and the history & story behind it as well...
All the goodies in this post are from Bristol and I love each bit so much - they are full of fun and creative inspiration, but I must confess that I have a favorite:
The best of the best ... A 1956 Here's the Bride Paper Doll Set...
