A gifty box

arrived this week from Karlyn and I feel so very spoiled.Thanks so much Karlyn I couldnt stop oooing and ahhing over it all.I made the captain take some happy snaps.
Lakota had organised a swap and me and K were matched up and we are now  blogging buddies.You must go see Karlyns blog too.
I love the way she remembered my love affair with Green.xx

 Look at all the goodies.Lace on cards  with Green pins.... sigh.
 everthing packaged so nicely.Mine was terribley sloppy  sorry K lol not one of my things.
 even Ns and my name stamped on them.So cool.

Absolutely gorgeous doiley covered coasters.
 Maybe  a mini bunting hanger needs to be made as they need to be shown off.
 This is a really awesome and unusual stamped hanger for the wall.It looks and feels like bees wax.Even the Captain took an interest.Looks Dutch to me Thoughts?

 Gorgeous green doileys and pretty tape and Green  knitting needles.PURRRR

 I used to have a dish like this and was only thinking recently what happened to it.Mine wasnt this lovely green tho LOVE IT!!! and I got some pretty fabric and a lovely apron too.Blurry pic is the captains fault shakey old man these days he is lol
 Love it K thanks so much again!!
I love everything

Nelly, I meant to put a little note in with the wax thingy.....I'm not sure if you use butter or margerine but I THINK it's a butter press. You press your butter in the mould and then press it out for the pretty pattern, very old fashioned, i've seen them before made of wood so i"m assuming it's the same thing. Have fun with it.....I really don't expect you to hang it on your wall lol!

Vix said...

Karlyn's found you some fab stuff, Nelly.
I though that wooden thing was a shortbread press but it could be used for butter, too. xxx

Misfits Vintage said...

I agree with Vix - I have also seen them used for pastry to decorate the tops of pies.

What a lovely parcel of goodies.

These swap parcels are all so unique and special. I adore the pins, really cute. It's great having presents like this, can't wait for my parcel.
Such a pretty bunch of gifts, lucky you.

I love your post and blog so much!!!.))

I need your help. I spend another survey but this time with another question.
"Where do you prefer to shop? What is your favorite shopping center?"

Lakota [Faith Hope and Charity Shopping] said...

Lovely things, so many people have really thought about what their swap partner likes - I'm so glad it's gone well x

Bargain Hunting Treasure Seeker said...

Your gift box is awesome! I've never seen doily covered coasters before! You got a lot of lovely things!

What fun Nelly! but you can't have any of my GREEN velvet..it's staying in my coat! I am just loving those pics of you with the pretty dress & the hat. You look so vintage styley & pretty! Maybe you'll just have to dress the Captain up as a Cowboy now & then ; ) what do you think?!! Funny, I didn't really know until I started blogging that there were really, truly lots of others who loved Vintage too...how cool is that there we all are : 0 Much love sweet one x
