If I point out every craft that caught my eye here I'd be typing all day, so I'm just going to say that everyone's work is really impressive!  Grin

I received my package from scarlet_nights on Saturday, but I've been ill so I haven't taken pictures.  Embarrassed  Sorry!

No more waiting though, here are my goodies. Cheesy



Everything together!  Pretty hand-stitched pillowcases (I'm so excited, I've always wanted fancy pillowcases!  Cheesy ), lovely hand-beaded necklaces in a style taught to her by her great-grandmother (they look awesome on but I fail at action shots), vintage jewelry, vintage hankies, and vintage napkins (I think?  They're awfully big and thick for hankies...whatever they are they're really pretty!)



Detail of one of the lovely pillowcases...looki t the little birds!  *loves*



The hankies, presided over by Roxie.  Wink  I love the anchors because they're cute, but I love the pink lace equally because it is a mystery (says Mexico, stamped Florida).

Thanks so much, scarlet_nights!  This has been a great swap!  Grin

yay Im glad you liked everything. I think they are napkins, they were in the trunk where I keep my vintage linens. The hankies belonged to my dads mother, when he was in the army he always sent her hankies and pillow covers from wherever he was. I have a huge bog of the hankies so I thought Id share the love, the pink one is a mystery to me as well Cheesy

I received an AMAZING package from PlumCrafty, I got super spoilt so prepare for image overload!
First, EVERYTHING, I couldn't believe how many little parcels were in here!

London 2012 Olympic magnetic bookmarks, about to be used in Harry Potter Cheesy

Next up a beautiful cushion cover! I had a look for a cushion today but couldn't find one, but I know I'll be able to get one at the mall next week.


A pair of short gloves

A brooch and a key chain

Handbag note cards

Glasses!

Ribbons

Long gloves, almost to my shoulder!

Hankechiefs


Vintage earrings, doilies and bracelets Cheesy LOVE THEM!








Magazines from 1959!

I have seriously been so spoilt! I could only ever dream of finding vintage items like this here. Thank you so much PlumCrafty!!!

haha, you're welcome How Lovely....it took so long to get there, I had to make sure it was worth the wait! Wink 

I was quite lucky that the second hand bookstore at Greenwich had a heap of The Studio magazines for sale, plus as the person in charge of the jewellery and accessories stall at my Great Aunt's church fete, I get dibs on all the donations. This year we had some super cool items from a lady who must have done a lot sewing for debutante balls in the 50s and 60s.  Cheesy

Those necklaces you made look really neat, scarlet_nights! Any chance of a close-up?

I love those Olympics bookmarks and the notecards and the ribbons and that flower...is it a broach or an earring that's lost it's mate? Those gloves look super-nice too! Are the hankies vintage or did you make them, PlumCrafty? What a nice deal that you get first crack at the donations!
