Eeeeeeeeekkkkkk!

That was the sound of me squealing with delight when I arrived home from Brown Owls lastnight. For some strange reason, I didn't check the mailbox yesterday, so when I came home there were two lovely packages waiting for me.
The first one flew in all the way from Canada. I won a fabulous giveaway on Kyla's blog. There's a vintage Golden Hands book, vintage patterns, vintage Vogarts embroidery transfers, lovely stickers, and McCalls recipe cards from 1973 (including a recipe for coconut chocolate cake...yum)!

Beautiful fabric, a lovely handwritten card and a sweet little embroidered postcard with Kyla's motto.
....and vintage zips and some floss and some twill tape and buttons! Thankyou so much Kyla for such a wonderful gift.

In the second package was a fabulous pay it forward that I signed up for on Ingrids blog not long after I started blogging. There's is some gorgeous fabric (I'm thinking of making something kitchen related with that one), vintage buttons and ric-rac, and gorgeous gift tags!

.....a beautiful handmade card and two vintage books. Sew Presents from Scraps (1974) has some great projects and templates and Cotton Cat and Martha Mouse (1966) is the most wonderful story about working together and sharing....

It has beautiful illustrations too.....

Thankyou so much Kyla and Ingrid....you made my day, actually you made my week!

Oooooh- look at all the those lovely crafty goodies! Arent crafty bloggers so generous with their giveaways?

You have also just reminded me that my grandma has the full set of the original golden hands series tucked away somewhere. I must go see if i can 'borrow' them.

No Toy Society mail yet? That's weird it should be there by now!

You are one lucky lady to receive those packs. And how great is Ingrid, I've been on the receiving end of a couple of her packages and she is an amazing sharer!
