Valentine Swap Package Arrived!

I signed up for the Valentine Swap
hosted by Sandy @ 521 Lake Street blog
(The link can be found at the top of my sidebar)

Sandy paired Debbie of My Vintage Daydreams and I as partners.
Thanks Sandy, you couldn't have chosen a better partner for me!
What a delight Debbie is, such a sweet lady with an adorable blog.

 Here is the precious heart box she decorated just for me! I LOVE it!

I opened the box in many wonderful things.  
  I'm overwhelmed by both her thoughtfulness and generosity.

Look at all these goodies!

She included 4 gorgeous vintage hankies, be still my heart.

She even sent me a vintage tablecloth ~ I know!!!  A Bermuda souvenir one.
You can bet I'll be using it in a tablescape soon.  Ah, to be in Bermuda,
away from all this cold & snow.  Think I should do a tablescape soon! :)

 Look at all these wonderful gifts!

These will be great for crafting.

A refrigerator magnet that says: "I love vintage linens", fits me to a tea! 
Gorgeous vintage enamel flower pin ~ guess she peeked in some past posts.
I love and collect vintage pins, the enamel flowers being a favorite.

This is the Bermuda tablecloth still wrapped up.....
which Debbie calls "just a little extra something", ha!
She spoiled me rotten!

She even found a page from a children's book with my name!
& believe it or not, when I was in grammar school my best friend
who lived a block away was named Penny.  Kismet!

Thanks so much Debbie for your kindness and generosity, and your BIG heart.
Sandy, thanks so much for hosting this fun swap. 

The more I blog & meet new friends, the more I like blogging.
There is nothing like blog friends.  Right?  No matter the distance, there is
 such a camaraderie amongst us that always makes me feel warm & fuzzy. 

Can't wait to see everyone's packages from this this fun swap!
