Mail Call, Patriotic Crafting & Swaps
...a good combo, why not!
My thoughtful friend Debbie from My Vintage Daydreams surprised me with this
adorable vintage tablecloth. Love all the "old timey" things in the design.
This one is on my list for a tablescape.
Debbie just got a blog makeover and her new look is perfection,
so don't miss visiting. She is showing off her amazing patriotic décor right now, and
holy moly it's fantastic. Thanks so much Debbie, you are such a sweet friend!
I made the things in this photo.
I sent Debbie the little patriotic flower pot and tag on the left, since
she is into her patriotic decorating. The tag on the right is hanging
on my kitchen window and the round tag is hanging on our frig.
Would I be lucky enough to have more mail call? YES I would!
My sweet friend (and fellow Virginian) Linda from LBP Sews generously
shared these goodies with me....I commented on liking them on her blog and
she chose these from her stash to share with me..so thoughtful, lucky me!
Sweet birds and little apron for crafting, painted pitcher that I'm in love with
(just look at that handle!), adorable bird S & P's now living on the
kitchen windowsill, and lovely vintage hankies.
Did you see the vintage tablecloth peeking from under the goodies?
Yup, she sent me this lovely tablecloth also.
Make sure you drop by Linda's blog too, her posts are always fun
Let me reiterate ~ Blogging friends are the BEST; and some of the sweetest,
generous and thoughtful folks I know.
I was in the mood to make some patriotic tags and went a little nuts.
So I'll keep some and share some.
I joined Linda from A Swap For All Seasons for the first time this month.
Exchange a card, tag and a bit of destash. This month the color was
purple and the theme "smile". I'd say my card definitely fit the bill.
I'm too early showing this and will link up at with the other participants
at the beginning of July. I had to mail "across the pond" so I sent it
extra early and luckily it did arrive. Check out this fun swap hosted by
Linda. Sign ups are the first of each month.
That is all for now. Hope you enjoyed my Olio.
Have a great rest of the week!
