More lovely mail!

First I got a package from my mom, then the next day I got a package from Elizabeth ! She was sending me this pattern out of the kindness of her heart and then I happened upon her etsy and bought that gorgeous pouch seen in the middle photo. Next on my 'can't live without it' list is one of those cute owl pin cushions she makes!
This little pouch is crazy cute. Let me count the ways I love it. First, it's made from vintage kitchen fabric. Secondly, it has roosters on it. I love vintage kitchen stuff and collect vintage roosters. Third, the color combination is beautiful. Four, Elizabeth put so put detail in to it. The liner is red gingham and attached to the zipper pull are fork and spoon charms along with some cute red rick rac trim. It is just soo darling. I don't even know what I am going to use it for just yet, I just couldn't live with out it! ha ha!
Okay, so she had already spoiled me enough, but then she had to go out do herself with giving me these beautiful pieces of vintage fabric! I don't have a lot of vintage fabric, I can't find much around my town. So when I opened this part of the package my jaw literally dropped! The fabric in the top right corner is the exact same fabric from my wrist cuff. I don't mean it looks like it, IT IS from the same fabric! Elizabeth had traded some of it with Katey . Isn't that crazy!
She also sent me some adorable buttons and a handmade card (seen in the top photo) along with some candy that I ate while unwrapping all my goodies. I feel like it's my birthday ! Elizabeth, thanks soo much!
I just got a knock at the door and it was my UPS man with another package !! It's actually for Pumpkinbutt, I'll see if I can post about it today.
