I adore the hair clips(?) in the 1st photo and the paper(?) things in the 2nd! Oh my gosh I love those! Seriously awesome.

Aren't they, Calabaza? I love the hair pins and the hoop! Cheesy

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! Wink

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! Grin
