Some Gorgeousness in the Mail

I was lucky enough to receive this wonderful giveaway in the mail today from Linda at Two Pink Possums which came all the way from Tasmania (for my overseas readers that is the little island at the bottom of Australia). Not only did I receive a beautiful vintage crinoline lady apron, but there was all kinds of other lovely things in there as well. I did have a giggle reading the Family Circle dated 1974 - I think that they must have been in a 'tropical' phase as all the recipes for main as well as dessert was using 'canned' tropical fruit!!! Noice!!! I just love the card and the lovely little bookmark as well.

I just adore retro fabrics and I was pleasantly surprised to find the fabric pictured below in the parcel. I have not come across this one before and I just love it. Check out the boys faces!! Looks just like my boys!!!

Some fantastic vintage buttons, chocolate (how did you know Linda that I am addicted to chocolate) , some other gorgeous fabric including retro cowboys, and some lovely yellow floral barkcloth.

Thanks Linda - it was such a lovely present to receive!
