Vintage book swap

I know it isn't for another 10 weeks (only 10 weeks, eeeek) but it's like Christmas every day here! I received my lovely vintage book swap today from the lovely apron thrift girl.

The packaging was beautifully autumnal





Inside was a vintage Betty Crocker book from the 1960's, some halloween fabric, some wool felt, vintage rick rack braid, pretty book plates, a fabulous Japanese craft book, a great embroidery set from those Sublime Stitching people with a kitchen theme. I had so wanted one of these as I had bought several for other people. All such beautiful gifts and very thoughtfully put together by someone who had obviously taken time to read my blog and find out what I liked. Thank you Selena.

Fot those of you who haven't yet caught the swapping bug there is a fabulous vintage bird swap going on over at vintage swaps, so what are you waiting for? Vamoosh, skeedaddle, scram.........

Donna I am so glad you liked everything I sent. It was so much fun putting together. I think the idea of a vintage swap is just so neat. Let me know if you have any issues with cookbook conversions. I'll let you know when your package arrives.
