I Cheated

Yes, I know we were suppose to mail our package to be received the second week of October BUT I was too excited to wait, plus I wanted to get the package in the mail so I could start working on the collages. ( yeah, sorry excuse) I have had my package ready to go for a couple of weeks and just couldn't stand it any longer. I had so much fun putting it together and writing little notes about different items. I put in one of my mothers aprons from the 50's, a box of my dads hankies (still all wrapped up like new from the 40's) a vintage collar for a man's shirt, vintage postcards, vintage photos, a 1950's farm journal, a 60's country ideal book, a vintage child's book, vintage table cloth and 2 napkins, a crocheted dollie, a vintage powder tin which I put homemade soap in. 2 women's patterns from the 1940's, and a paper fan with wooden handle like the funeral homes use to give out to the churchs to use in the hot summers. I hope Laurie enjoys her package as much as I enjoyed putting it together! But Shhhhhhh! Don't tell her! LOL When I came back from the post office I had a package from Vintage Housekeepers Circle! I now have Paris Rain Laundry Detergent in a beautiful glass bottle, Paris rain Sheet Spray and lots of samples of Paris Rain body soap, hand soap, whitner for laundry and fabric softner! What a nice surprise! This is turning out to be a wonderful day!
