Hooray!!! I'm so glad you like everything! Your comments made my day. It was really fun to craft for you because your tastes seem very similar to mine.

I'm on my way home right now, and I think your package is waiting in my mailbox.  Grin

I received the best package I could have asked for from serendipity_sarah! I didn't have the patience to take photos before hand because I was so darned excited. Everything fits me so well and has so much thought behind it. And she included a little hand-made card with each item explaining what it was. So nicely presented!  Smiley

This post contains a lot of photos because I want to do justice to everything she sent me.  Grin

The first thing I opened was an adorable clothespin angel ornament with a vintage lace cloth dress. Here's my cat checking it out:

Next I opened two packages that contained not 1, not 2, not even 4, but 6  Shocked pairs of unbelievably beautiful earrings made with vintage crystals and beads. Vintage earrings are my absolute favorite things. I love them all--I can't pick a favorite. My hubby took a photo of every single pair:

There was one thing left, and I noticed the entire box smelled like baked goods. When I opened this item I almost started to cry, it was so sweet. Sarah perfectly recreated one of my favorite things from my wists, a cupcake stuffie. She even filled it with warm vanilla sugar scented beads to make it smell freshly-baked!

Thank you so much, Sarah! You completely made my day and I can't wait to show off all my new stuff. I couldn't have asked for a better partner for this swap.  Smiley

I'm so glad you're happy with everything MandyLikesPie!  Grin
I love everything you made for me too!  I've been hoarding the vintage beads for a while and this was the perfect opportunity to use them.  This was such a great swap!
