Vintage Swap is now Complete!

I had the BEST swap partner - I'm SOOOoooo lucky! I thought I sent her some really great things but the stuff I received was even better. Lynette is a vintage textile dealer. Be sure to check out her stuff at Mama Wiskas. Anyway....

This is what I unpacked....

Notice that in the first photo everything is packaged in pretty tulle bows. I almost tore them open before I realized I should take a photo!















Here is what was inside: An embroidered dresser scarf, a vintage floral-print smock-type apron, a sheer aqua and gold organdy apron, a set of embroidered pillowcases, a pair of darling coasters, shoe buckles, needle books, a needle case, a floral tray, a porcelain yellow rose pin, a crocheted teacup and saucer perfectly fitted with a candle, a 1955-56 pocket calendar/notepad, an embroidered tea towel, a set of darling french postcards, Six "Kitchen Klatter" magazines from 1957, a package of kleenex with my monogram (extra cute since I included a monogrammed handkerchief in my package to her!)a set of six cocktail napkins detailed below and a sequinned peacock pin. Can you guess my favorite item?












It's a tough choice since everything is so cute. But come on... try to guess.... I'll give you a hint - it's not that easy to see in the photos and I tried to get a close-up photo, but it was tricky.....
