Aren't they, Calabaza? I love the hair pins and the hoop!
Oh, and I made those hankies...Liberty (of London) have the best vintage-inspired fabric...this swap was such a thin excuse for me to visit their sales to get fabric!
Am I the last to received? I picked up the best package at the Post Office from How Lovely this afternoon and I was truly spoilt!
Here are all the items from the parcel
There was a vintage inspired covered journal and bookmark...just the right size for my handbag (I love this size)
A fabulous flapper girl, who I am naming Mabel. Isn't she cute?
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful envelopes from a vintage Japanese book
The most amazing lap quilt ever...I nearly cried when I saw it, it is so gorgeous.
The background fabric is vintage inspired and the yoyos are repurposed from a yukata (is this right?). How Lovely used both the outer fabric and lining, and it is too beautiful for words.
Finally a shot of all the extra goodies. What How Lovely doesn't know is that I have a set of sushi plates that match the soy sauce bowls. Serendipity or what? There is also fabric tape and wonderful Japanese papers.
Thank you so much How Lovely, you're a wonderful swap partner!
