Goddies galore

I recently did a goodie box swap with Dagmar from studio d
talk about being spoilt rotten!
so many lovely bits and bobs to unwrap!

a little felted purse, cotton handkerchiefs, lace, ribbon roses and paper flowers galore!
lace wrapped tags, buttons and bingo tokens
trims, buttons and a crocheted cuff, I LOVE these colours so much! perhaps a little bit of vintage seaside and candyfloss...
I love Canada too Dagmar! thank you so much for this wonderful goodie box, I can't wait to get started on a new project, the trims and buttons above are first on my list! superb!

Hi Margaret,
Loved your post...I had forgotten what I sent! BTW..I remember you asking me if I made the tags...and yes I did...glad all those things will be made into something you will treasure or pass on to some one else! Thanks so much for mentioning my blog!
Are you ever planning to come to Canada?

Wow, you really ARE spoiled, Margaret. I am loving that Canada centennial map. Of course, I would have been diving head first into that lace and those buttons and ribbons. Love it all, you lucky gal. Of course, you deserve it, too.

Margaret, I love your blog so much! Thank you for your kind comments about Eat, Write, Dream, Stitch. And I am commenting here, in particular, because I can't think of anything more fun and inspirational than a goodie box swap! What an absolutely delightful idea! My eyes are just feasting on your photos here! My new mission is to now create a goodie box and then find someone to swap with!
