I had time this morning to open the most wonderful package sent to me by Erica of Golden Egg Vintage. She and I were partnered up for the spoolie Easter exchange where we were challenged to make a cute Easter creation using a wooden spool! Erica is amazing and so creative. Look at this adorable spoolie she made for me!
Lots of detail and bright colors. Love the little chick and bird ! It just make me smile.
The box was filled with LOTS of goodies and I am so excited about my box of goodies. Erica and I had never even chatted before this exchange and I just love her! She is so full of life and was easy to get to know, easy to exchange fun emails. Look at this creation! It is one of my favorite treats, as I love egg boxes. She decorated this one and it is so pretty and will live in my tea room. My Tasha Tudor group had a Chickahominy exchange this spring. Chickahominy was the name of her favorite rooster, so I was just thrilled to see a rooster decorating this pretty egg!
The box alone is just wonderful but when I opened it, I found a darling rabbit sitting on a vintage block...note the R for Rabbit! How clever is that? Can you see the Mary Englebriet paper dolls in the background? CUTE.
This little rabbit is sitting in a basket with other little treats all wrapped up in cellophane, so it's a little blurry. So sweet....
Something was wrapped up in a lovely vintage handy with lilly of the valley flowers on it. It's really soft and silky. I wondered what could be inside of this surprise? Another little basket with more sweet spring time items.
There was a large package wrapped in blue tissue with charming little wooden ornaments tied on it.
I was just happy happy happy and amazed at Erica's generousity.
We had discovered that we both like Frozen Charlottes and look what she gave me!
A blue basket was inside the tissue and it was filled with lots of Easter treats! Candy, napkins, tags, vintage flowers, buttons, and the cutest matchbox covered with sweet paper and inside Erica had tucked little sticker in for me! LOVE. She even gave me tea. I'm telling you, she has such a gift for giving and learning what her exchange friend would really enjoy. Not everyone can do that. She took the time to learn what I liked and then put together just the PERFECT gift for Linda Lou!!!!
What would Easter be without a vintage bunny book to enjoy?
I'm sure I missed sharing some other items with you, but I am overwhelmed! I tried to put everything together to give you a sense of the collection! THANK YOU SO MUCH ERICA! You certainly spoiled me rotten!
Erica did a lovely blog post on her blog about the goodies I sent her. She is a mid century fan, like my daughters, so it was quite fun for me to send her treats too. Here is a picture of the spoolie I made for her! It was so much fun and this was one of the best exchanges I have ever participated in!
Pop over and visit Erica. She has a fun blog and has a fun Market Monday thing going.
