Sometimes I take the girls to the thrift shop and we'll find little vintage treasures, magazines or books, kitchen towels... that sort of thing. If I know it is something a particular reader would truly appreciate, we set it aside. Then we pack it all up and make a special trip to the post office.
It is so much fun, and we never ever expected to get anything back in return. Yet, that is precisely what happened a few days ago when this awesome package arrived from Val in the Rose Garden. What a wonderful surprise!!
Inside was a beautiful card, a felted wool hat Val made (which Clara seemed to claim and refuses to take off), a Real Simple Family magazine (I love that!), a child's apron and cookie cutter set from... China (?) Emily LOVES them.... and wait... there was more!
This pretty potholder Val made from vintage bed sheets! I love how it goes so well in our kitchen! Val also included lots of great vintage fabrics that I have big plans for.... maybe some bread bags? Oh, that would be so much fun!
Thank you, Val!! If you haven't been to Val's little corner of the internet over at Collecting the Moments... One by One, definitely go check it out. I've been calling her site "the best kept secret on the internet". It is an absolute treasure trove!
