Valentine's Swap Spoils a Thrifter Sister

Hello Everyone!

Hanna here.  I've been squirming since Saturday to share my Valentine's Day Swap gift from Sandy over at 521 Lake Street.  I will admit I was really nervous for this swap, being my first.  I still feel like I didn't do enough for my partner and was intimidated by all the craftiness but I still had a blast.  I'm pretty sure Sandy still doesn't realize how spoiled I felt when I opened my package.  The attention to detail, all the crafty goodness, I am still grinning ear to ear.  Here is the beautiful box she created and all the goodies she put inside.
This was everything inside the box.  The details were just too sweet.  Everything was so thoughtfully packaged.
 Here is my beautiful candy box.
 A peek inside.  You have no idea how exciting this was to open.

Some of the goodies inside the box.  Vintage buttons, a hanky, trim and string, paper straws, a jar of pink beads, cupcake toppers, the list goes on and on.
Cocoa and chocolates.  There was also a mini box of chocolates but the husband got to it when I wasn't looking.
 Doilies, vintage stickers, a note book.

The cutest clothespin holding a sweet Valentine.  What a cute idea.
 I'm pretty sure I've never received something as adorably packaged as this.  It is actually a gift bag, love it!
Now do you believe me?  So, so spoiled!  Sandy, you have started my vintage Valentine's day collection, I'm so lucky.  I will share with you guys soon how I incorporated some of my gifts to create two Valentine's day displays in my house.  So what have I learned?  I love swaps and need to work on being as crafty as my Blog world friends.  Sandy is so talented and I'm one spoiled Thrifter Sister.

Until Next Time,
Sister Hanna
