I'm so excited about my swap package from kittykill! After a little vaca in Iowa, it finally decided it was time to come home. Lookie!!

First, just what I wanted, and more so: this "craft" sign for (duh) my craft room! I love how vintage it looks. It looks so great with my turquoise walls that I just had to photograph it in there. I have a couple of spots it would look good in, so I'm going to have to figure out where it wants to hang permanently. I promise it won't be left here on the floor! The stitching is, of course, perfect. Love this!


Next, this sweet little framed crown, based on one on my Pinterest boards. I've already found the perfect shelf to sit this on. Now it's almost impossible to forget that I am, after all, the queen. Cheesy


And last, but certainly not least, an old wooden box filled chock full of ephemera: fun old greeting cards and postcards, tags, tickets, playing cards...you name it. There's an old Christmas stocking, a banner with Halloween pumpkins, tons of vintage Cracker Jack charms, and two giant, somewhat scary elephant heads that I just love. There was so much stuff in there that I had to take a representative sample, or the photo would have had to be huge. This was like opening a treasure box! kittykill, you know what I like!


I'm so excited about my new goodies, and so happy that they finally made it here. Thanks a ton! I so enjoyed swapping with you!  Kiss

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Yeah! I'm so glad it got to you! All the charms are from my husband's old store. A woman came in with a huge tool box (like 50 little drawers) of charms that she wanted to sell. There are some crazy ones in there. The pumpkins are old bridge card game tallies (I think)-they are again from the Hubby's store. The yellow sticks are old popsicle holders. I love those things-they are so funny!

Thanks for being such an awesome partner! Kiss

That is one epic swap package you got yourself rackycoo!  Weird; here I thought I was the queen but you obviously have proof that it's you (don't tell my family, I have them convinced it's me).  The box of strange and wonderful goodies has me in a state of oh I want it, all of it!

Both the crosstitches are beautiful. I really like that they are black and white.
