A Tatty Swap!




The morning I left for Port Isaac, (had a fabulous, sunny time by the way, more about that later), I received a parcel from my best friend Tats. We had agreed to a swap and her parcel arrived bearing all sorts of lovely gifts. There was a vintage flour tin, some pretty vintage fabric buttons, a hand bag mirror in my favourite polka dot fabric, a sweet little apron for Lizzy, a sausage dog kit, a gorgeous corsage made from a Suffolk puff and vintage button, some scraps of vintage fabric, a feedsack with the label on (which I collect), a keyring made from a vintage children's book and a box of beautiful unused vintage cards. I felt like the luckiest girl alive. Thank you so much Tanya, your box is being assembled ready to send to you. Pin It

Welcome back Dons.

Great stuff from Tats! BUT what on earth is a Suffolk Puff? Any relation to a Suffolk Punch? What else comes from SUffolk, je me demande! (apart from me)

I LOVED your buttons - I've not sorted them out properly yet cos I don't want to put them away! just keep going through the box. Thanks so much.

Glad your holiday was good, looking forward to pics....

That present is so lovely. Oh you two make and send such lovely things to each other. I saw the box you sent Lettie and it was so brilliant. We had such a nice time looking at her buttons. I was in heaven.
