here are some of the lovely labels! i feel so spoiled! those little ovals are to die for! ;)
she also included a very generous amount of ephemera! photos, post cards, stamps, tickets, a popcorn bag (i was JUST eyeing some on etsy the other day!), bingo cards, vintage sewing items, more labels!!!
eee! a WHOLE bag of glassine envelopes (neatly tucked inside a glassine envelope with an adorable red label!)
and this is just a sampling of the amazing vintage paper she included! (i LOVE how the word "journal" appeared several times throughout the collection! what a coincidence, because it is a word i am VERY into right now!) ;)
there were pages in several languages, pages from all sorts of old books of every kind you can imagine! there were even bits of embroidery patterns, handwritten ledger pages (big fave!), and schoolbook/kids book pages.
and lovely vintage ladies! oh, how i would have loved to have lived in a time when women dressed in lovely dresses and wore hats and fancy shoes!
and it doesn't end there! there was also a glassine bag full of letters that spelled out my name! AND a card with gold seal stickers (wow!)
(i feel like a kid on christmas morning!) AND there was vintage wallpaper (my jaw is dropping to the floor at this point!) these photos do not even cover half of how amazing each piece was!
thank you, hope for a lovely swap! this was a ton of fun! it is so inspiring to receive vintage items from someone else's stash. and i was a good crafter and i actually used some of the items right away in my journal instead of my usual "stash away and save for a rainy day"! (i'll post about that next!)
