Look What I Got!

I recently participated in a swap hosted by Mary of VINTAGE PATINA. The theme was "It's About Time" and swap items were to have a "time" or numbers feel. I love clocks and old numbers so I thought I would join in. I was lucky enough to have Mary herself as my swap partner and look what arrived on my doorstep yesterday... A cool suede backgammon case ( how brilliant to use it as a gift box!) chock full of cool stuff! Old flashcards, playing cards, an awesome clock, old tape measures, hand-made gift tags, a charm that says "antiquer", watch faces, old bottle caps with numbers inside, an old knob, a cute as a button flashlight, a ruler and an old metal tag. Mary, you really outdid yourself and I love it all!! Lucky girl that got her for the "I'd Rather Be In Paris" swap I am hosting!!! Thanks Mary!!!

Wow Shelley! You received an amazing swap from Mary. I would of thought Christmas hit for sure if I'd of rec'd anything this fabulous in the mail. Wonderful - all of it. I'm especially drawn to the watch faces, as I love to design necklaces around them. I can't wait for the "Frenchie" swap you've hosted.
Thanks again, for including me.

What a pretty package! I came over after reading Mary's blog raving about the "I'd Rather be in Paris Swap" (which I'm so bummed I missed!)... You have a lovely blog, and I will definitely become a frequent reader.
