I'm A Lucky Girl!

Hi Blog Friends!  It's me, Maddie!
Erica at Golden Egg Vintage recently hosted a Valentines Day Candy Box Swap and I was lucky enough to be chosen as her partner!  Unfortunately, after we made the boxes, I got sick.  One day when I was feeling really horrible, my mom walked into the bedroom and brightened my day!  She came in holding a big box with my name on it.  It was a package from Erica!  My mom also got her box the same day from her swap partner, Deb.  To add suspense, I made her open her box first.  After she was done, I grabbed my box and ripped it open!
Not only was the candy box that Erica made for me inside the box, there was also a little white box with a note on it.  The note said "here are some things to help you start off your Easter collection.  You can share them with your aunt and your mom if you want."
Inside were these...
Three spun head rabbits!  No way was I gonna share these!!
Erica hadn't been feeling well lately either so she sent me the amazing box that she blogged about a few weeks ago.
I hadn't seen her blog post, so the box was still a surprise for me.
Do you want to see what was inside?
When I took the lid off, I was very surprised because she had sent me so many things (which she didn't have to do!)
Can you believe that she fit so much stuff into one box?
I've already used the stickers in a craft project! 
Then last week I got ANOTHER box from Erica in the mail.  But you will have to wait until next time to see all of it!


**Note from Erica the Mom:  Maddie really did write this post.  The only help she got from me was the picture taking and blog formatting.  I am raising a pretty good little blogger, don't you think?

  9. Maddie,

  12. Hi Maddie!
    I'm so happy to see a post from you! I'm also happy to hear that you liked "round #1" of your Valentine's swap things. I hope there are some things in there that you can use. I told your mom that you need to do a post about the things that you collect! That would be fun to see. Tomorrow I'll be posting about what you sent to me! Can't wait to show everyone!
    Thanks Maddie!
    Erica :)

  13. So glad to see a post from you Maddie!

    My swap came while I was sick, too! It's helps doesn't it?

    I love the box Erica made and all the goodies, too. I'd love to know where she got the heart box of cute buttons!

    I hope you post more in the future. I think it's cool that you've started treasure hunting and collecting early! ♥

  14. So much fun stuff, and a very enjoyable post! Thanks for sharing. Looking forward to more Maddie posts in the future! :) --Fran

  15. You have received a beautiful box from Erica. She is so generous and has a really good eye for vintage. I found you through her blog and I am your newest follower. Hope you are having a great weekend.
