I'm a Lucky Girl, Part Deux

I finally got my swap package to Heather mailed out yesterday. Aren't you glad? Now you don't have to hear me talk about it any more. When I got home from work, I had a lovely surprise waiting for me. Okay, it wasn't a surprise as I knew it was coming, but I was so excited to see Heather's package in my mailbox. I had shown this sneaky peak from Heather's blog last week.

Now, I hesitate to show you all the fabulous stuff that was inside. I mean, I don't want to make you all jealous or anything. Okay, maybe I want to make you a little jealous. ha ha But seriously, I just have to show you. Let me say though, how amazed I was that Heather was able to get so much in such a small box. The "trunk" was an old sewing machine drawer that Heather painted white. So cute and useful for holding lots of my little treasures. This is what was inside:

gorgeous vintage wallpaper, little cards made by Heather and a couple vintage greeting cards, little lace box with rhinestone pin and the most lovely rhinestone button I have ever seen, glass buttons, ledger papers, victorian catalogue pages, velvet ribbons, millinery roses, an adorable piece of ticking fabric, pink glitter in a sweet little bottle, hankies, diecuts, gold and MOP pill box with ribbon roses, sweet little match box, the most beautiful lace doily, half doll, little cameo, pieces of lace, piece of barkcloth fabric, paper roses and I'm sure I'm forgetting something. Here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure.

I truly am a lucky girl. I only hope that Heather is half as happy with my gifts as I am with hers. I knew that her trunk would be fabulous, but I wasn't prepared for how generous she was. If there was a store called "Everything Lisa Loves" I'm sure this is where all of this wonderful "junque" would have come from. Thank you so much Heather! I'll be your swap partner any time!

Working today and again tomorrow. I leave on Thursday for my trip to Southern CA and the Long Beach Flea Market. I am so excited I can barely stand it. I know lots of bloggers like to go to this flea market, so if you see me, please stop me and say hi. That is if you can catch me. I'll most likely be in a vintage shopping frenzy. Gotta see it all. Have a great day!
