The Last of The Swap Goods

Hi again, it's me Maddie!
So Erica from Golden Egg Vintage sent me ANOTHER special Valentines Day box.  She made this one just for me & filled it full of fun stuff.  I appreciated this box just as much as the other one.  I thought her last box was amazing. I didn't think she could outdo herself, but she did!  My mom brought in the mail and there was a box wrapped in pretty Valentine paper just for me.  I couldn't wait to open it.  My dad was home so he got to watch me open it too.  He was even surprised!
She spelled my name out in Scrabble letters. I told you she made it just for me!
She even made a flower out of an old mercury glass bulb!  Do I know my vintage material or what?
I think this looks like a pink bumblebee!
Now lets take a look at what was inside....
I collect stickers and Erica sent me four sheets of the cupcake & ice cream ones!  I needed a new wallet since I lost my last one and what girl doesn't like hair clips?
I am going to make my mom give me a pedicure. She just doesn't know it yet:-)
I didn't have this Golden Book but I do now!  Do you see that little snail on the top of the book?  I think Erica made it out of old pipe cleaners.  I am going to try to make my own! 
These Valentines were perfect for me to get so that I can start my own vintage Valentines collection that I don't have to share with mom!
Thanks for everything, Erica. You were the best swap partner EVER!!!
Bye for now blog friends.  If I have it my way, this won't be the last that you hear from Sidekick Maddie!
Happy Early Valentines Day,


  1. Awesome box! Isn't real mail great!

  2. Maddie-
    I'm so glad that you enjoyed Box #2! I tried to make this one a little more funky! That's cute that you see pink bumblebees. They were a pair of vintage earrings that I pulled the backs off of.
    I thought maybe you could use a cute wallet to take to the Estate Sales. Sorry that the Golden Book is so random! But I found it the day I was sending your package, so I figured that it was meant to be yours!
    Thank you for being such a great swap partner Maddie!
    Erica :)

  7. That box is so cool! I love the scrabble letters and little flower! You are lucky to have such great blog friends!

  8. Maddie, you have inherited your mom and aunt's talent for blogging and collecting. Don't know about you gals but I can't wait for warm weather to head out to some good yard sales and estate sales.
