Hello chickadee's.  This has been a great week from the gift fairy's.  On Wednesday I had lunch with Joyce from  we are Santa swap partners.  It is always so nice to get together with her Joyce she is a total sweet heart.  This is what she has wrapped up for to open on Christmas day.  Joyce there is no way to peak as you have taped the packages so well hehehe.                              

I am also in the once a season swap and Cheryll from is the swap mamma for this too.  My swap partner is Leona from  she has so out done herself.  Leona is a very generous person. She has made me a very happy girl.  Just look at the vintage trim she sent me. mmmmmm.

The yo yo's will be put to good use just look at the wonderful colors.

The vintage hankies are just beautiful.  On the lavender one the lace is crocheted on.  How lovely is that?  Leona also sent me the zipper pouch and tissue holder.  

And just look at the fabulous fabrics.  All in different wonderful variations of purples and lavenders with a hint of yellow.  

Thank you so VERY much Leona.  I just love all my goodies can not wait to find projects for it all.  

The beautiful board that I displayed my fabulous vintage lace and yo yo's on was made for me by another one of my very generous friends Carla.  Carla is so sweet  and always finds the best ideas.  Thank you Carla.
Today  there where actually a couple of garage sales in our little town.  The only thing I really found was a picnic basket.  ( I will show you later)  I thought is would be a great home for some of my crafty things.  

We are in store for another hot weekend with no rain in site.  Yesterday my car said it was 106.  Thank goodness for air conditioning.  Hope everyone is having a great day and staying cool.
