I am such a lucky girl!!!
I recieved a knit embroidered pillow, a sewn pillow, placemats, a tea cup candle with saucer, a journal with katherine hepburn and an amazing crocheted purse, it is amazing, and it was her first time crocheting!  She excellently captured my love for old movie glamour.

Okay... need to show off. DogGrrl is too amazing. Sorry is this is a lot of (bad) pictures, I just love everything so much.
First picture is the adorable box everything came in. TOO CUTE (and if photobucket hadn't so rudely made my picture very small you'd be able to tell that it says "Marlie's Retro Box-o-Fun!").
I know it's a bit hard to make out what's in the second picture, but it's a cute retroey photoframe on a gold easel (perfect for a painter!), an ADORABLE nightlight, and the square thing on the bottom is a sweet little notebook that says "Good Ideas" on one side and "Bad Ideas" on the other.
The third and fourth pictures are of a tote that impressed me so much that I just keep poking and proding at it to try and figure out how in the world anything can be so well made (I'm still pretty new to sewing.) Also it is covered in educational pictures that will show me the way to properly cook and clean!
Fifth are the first three freaking adorable shirts ever! PIGGLYWIGGLY ARE YOU SERIOUS?! I LOVE them.
And then as if it couldn't get any better. The sixth picture is me absolutely giddy and modeling the fourth shirt she sent me, (FOUR! Grin) on the front is a cute little cat... and the back says catsprefermarlie!!!
Oh and that's not even everything!! She also included two cd's! They aren't pictured because Dino's in my car cd player and the Retro Mix is in my computer!
