Well I am very excited to announce that I got my package from crassy_mcnasty!  Well I actually got it on Thursday, but have been super busy and unable to sit down and get everything done that I wanted to...

Okay without further ado...I love, love what I got and in fact I am wearing two of the pieces currently!

First I got this amazing skirt that is black in background with martini cocktails all over it.  I simply love the yellow rickrack at the bottom of the skirt.  I got so many compliments on it already!  Thank you so much and it fits perfectly too!

and a close up of the material and edging!

Next she included a awesome apron with 50's appliances and cupcakes.  Just my style!!  I love aprons too!

Hair Ornaments:  A (Rosie) scarf, a super cute leopard ribbon with a small red rose (I got lots of compliments on it, yesterday), A small red heart on a bobby pin with a red gingham little bow, a black and white fabric flower with cherries on it...

...and finally the one I am wearing tonight is also great because it has a green button on it and I love green!

the cake topper is the three tiered green and blue beaded necklace with matching blue earrings.  Fabulous!!!

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!  I think that everything I received it so wonderful!! I love it ALL!

Any thing can be fixed with tape and love.

I received a wonderful swap parcel today. Check out these goodies!!And sorry I didnt flip these pictures, my computer is spazzing at the moment

Cutest little notw and envelope, alice in wonderland themed. <3 it!

Two hair clips. A bow and a rose. I love how different they are, but are still so 50's.

A cute little cross-stitch cherry box. it's adorable Smiley

Notes on Howlovely's favorite things from the 50's, plus some awesome birthday cards that I don't think I can part with Cheesy

Close-up of the birthday cards. They are brighter in real life

A set of four coasters. These are so cool! They have a heap of things from the 50's, like "A is for Apron" and so on.

close-up of one of the coasters

Cutest little bag. It should go perfectly with a dress I plan to buy in august. It matches the hairbow and also a hankerchief(which I was unable to get a photo of, but will probably be used as a head scarf thingy)

AND THE BEST TILL LAST!! A freaking davy crockett hat. It was meant to be for my dad, but now we are totally going to fight over who gets it! It's awesome!!

 Grin Grin Grin Grin ;DTHANK YOU HOWLOVELY!!! Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin

Remember my mistakes,
remember you can change,
Remember that it's up to you...
to go and shape your life into
one that's worth of remembering...
How Lovely
