The first package I opened had vintage napkins, unusual crocheted lace, a hankie, ribbon, bell appliques, precious beaded poinsettia blossoms and more.
There were fabrics and trims - I especially love that quilt piece and the 1950s print.
A sweet Rudolph jello mold, cute decorated match boxes, shiny embellishments, and buttons. Also a bit of angel hair and lots of wonderful striped crepe paper. Laurie sent me a bit of the crepe paper on a package last year and I've been looking for some ever since.
There are cards and some unusual paper items. Don't you love that little finger tip towel and the bit of Victorian scrap? There are some little greetings printed on vellum, too, that were probably intended for Christmas cards, pretty metallic and white doilies, vintage photos and postcards.
More fun paper items - a honeycomb bell, old book pages, vintage cups with snowmen (that I somehow cut out of the photo!), a little bell and oh, I love that Kordite Freze Box!
And of course there were stickers! We both love vintage stickers, and each had lots that the other didn't. I'm crazy for that set in the upper left corner. I love those little multicolor bits of metallic scrap, too. Laurie also included one of her handmade crepe paper roses - beautiful!
I'm not sure how she could give up this flocked apron, but I'm so happy to have it! It just makes me smile.
I love these pastel items, too. That little putz house is adorable. Do you see the two tiny deer just above the snowman sticker on the left? The lace samples are so pretty, and there are more on the other side.
I saved this for last. The ornament tray was wrapped in a cute bag from a shop in Laurie's area and tied with red tulle. She lined each opening with cupcake liners and filled them with tiny Christmas treasures. I love each and every little thing, but this guy...
may be my favorite. He's a sweetie.
Laurie also sent me a Christmas snippet roll that I'll share in my next post. You'll want to see it, I promise!
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed seeing all the vintage Christmas and that it puts you in the mood for the holidays - it won't be long now!
I didn't get great photos of what I sent Laurie, but she has some on her blog here. You can also see her pics of the things she sent me here (spoiler alert - her post includes the snippet roll.)
Also, Laurie is hosting a White Christmas Button Book swap on the Button Floozies blog. You can read about it here to get all the details including sign-up instructions. I'm signed up! Hope you'll join in!
