My Vintage Heart Swap 3

This has been so much fun! I have really enjoyed this swap and getting to know my sweet and patient swap partner Rochelle at Southern Girl... Northern Woman
We had some things in common like we both come from central California in quite a close area,
I've actually been to Chiliwack BC where she is now, just beautiful there. She may not have known this but I make jewelry also from vintage beads she is so talented and creative, I've been floored by her creations(they can be seen on her blog) She has been a joy to get to know!

So here are the treasures she sent.... an issue of bliss Victoria that is just wonderful
It's almost like we've gone shopping together for years!
I love pink jeanette glass!
and Lefton Pixies, if you've noticed my header
Long pink ruched gloves, a pink and white darling crocheted potholder, an amazing vintage pin cushion and a sweet sheer apron perfect for Valentine's Day!
the bag o evil! how could I resist any of it? needless to say hiding this from the kids was useless the found it and it was gone by time I went back for another treat!
I just love this shot!
Look at that sweet Kewpie Valentine enjoying the view from the patio :)
But this is the Pièce de résistance 
made by her loving hands! What a centerpiece! She will be cherished and enjoyed for many years to come. So Thank Rochelle for spoiling me silly and being such a sweetheart!

I also want to thank Dolly at From my Cherry Heart for being our gracious hostess!
Drop by and visit her to see the treasures from all the vintage heart swappers.
Thanks for stoppin' by and
Have a Happy Valentine's Day full of L-O-V-E and laughter!
