Vintage Christmas Swap




I participated in the Vintage Christmas Swap (see link on side bar) and I had a great swap with Connie from Serious Mumbo Jumbo (click on the title above to see her blog.)
She knew I liked pink as everything was themed around this colour!
I adore the English teacup and saucer with little rose sprigs (roses are my fave!) and the vintage Christmas baubles are gorgeous although I was devastated as one was smashed by the postman!
The gorgeous porcelain fairy would have been great on my tree but my little girl insists it is hers - she has it on her dressing table with all her "collections." She also took the pretty shabby chic style basket everything came in and the chocolates too!
I also got a delish box of Christmas cards which I am going to send to the girls from my shabby chic yahoo group, they are gonna love them!
I haven't tried the Wedgwood tea yet but it gave me nostalgic memories of the company I worked for for six years.
There was also a Victorian style CD of Christmas songs and some old gold table napkins, both lovely!
Thank you so much Connie, what a generous and lovely person you are! I hope you like your parcel from me and I hope you get it real soon!

  2. I am so glad you enjoyed your package. So sorry to hear one of your ornaments broke. I really thought I wrapped it up good.

    Love the idea that I made two girls happy with my goodies. It is so nice to share with a pretty young lady. I am sure she is going to have her mother's fine taste.

    Take care and have a Merry Christmas!
    Connie
