Whoa, those are some great packages! I love those little flapper clothespin dolls. So cute! That necklace looks really nice. Love the colors! That ration book is super-neat and all those vintage goodies are too cool!

I received from frosty772:

A bag from modish fabric, costume necklace, coaster, book box, a pretty bracelet and a card.
Thanks!

I received today from mousee23, and oh, my goodness is everything adorable.  First off, you have to ooh and aah at the adorable wrapping! 



The "bow" is a crochet pin/clip and a pair of earrings (I'll close up on those in a minute).  I'm sort of obsessed with crochet flowers, but have never thought to put feathers/bows on them.  This is the cutest idea!



This one is a really cute bracelet with a feather and flower tucked under it.  SO CUTE! 

Now for the shot of all the goodies: 



So many cute things!  I'll do some close ups on some, but there was that awesome cross-stitched pillow... the tiniest stitches I've ever seen.  It's the perfect color scheme, too, because the yellow brocade back is the same color as my living room curtains, and I have a bright red couch.  You can also see the awesome 1920's Gatsby-esque paper dolls, and the AWESOME vintage Doilies (I may be the only person under 80 who regularly uses and changes out the doilies on the tables).

Now, some close-ups: 


Sweet "Victoriana" earrings. 


Love Birds necklace with a red velvet ribbon.

And my favorite item, just because it's so from the heart: 

"Vintage" plug covers from when her children were little, since I'm expecting my first baby in November!  I teared up a little at this one... I blame the hormones.  Smiley 

Thanks so much, mousee!  I love everything.

Doilies hand-made by auntie is even better than just vintage!  I have a bunch my grandma made, too, and I seriously put them all over the house.  Doilies are so pretty. 

Also, love the "cat's eye" theme going on there zuliblu!
