Look What I Got in The Mail!!

Yesterday the mail lady brought me two boxes from Kent, England from
my vintage kitchen swap partner Marie!! How exciting!! I was thrilled when I opened the boxes!! Marie sent so many goodies!! She sent two of these dish towels and also a white one that is irish linen. I put one of these in my studio as a scarf over an old vintage tool drawer. The white and red irish linen towel is going to be a table scarf in the kitchen.Marie made me this darling apron. It has sweet little apples on it and is edged in very pretty lace. it is going to hang on my pantry door.
HMMMMMM YUMMMMM GOODIES......golden syrup from England will be so good on a number of things. The walnut whips are sooooooooo
rich and so good. We sat and sampled those and the other candies while watching a movie last night. So delicous..... chocolates and carmels and oh my!!!

Marie crocheted the pretty pot holder as well!! What a lot of loot!!

Marie also sent a beautiful recipe box that she painted herself. How talented!! It is perfect for my kitchen colors and so well done. She even hand wrote some victorian recipes for me to try!

This is a vintage cookbook and I will add it to my small collection. It is fun to look through and see if we use some of these recipes still.
This is a cute hook that will be on the front of the pantry door and here will hang the darling apron.
Talk about spoiled!!!! Marie You outdid yourself with this swap! I love it all and appreciate it so much.

If you haven't visited MariesMuses you have to!!. Such a wonderful blog.

I'm so pleased you liked what I sent Katie. I loved all that you sent me equally as well! (Even if I do keep calling the boysenberries huckleberries, or is it the other way around!)
