A swap is like Christmas anytime of the year without all the work :)

My husband came home with this last Friday...
From the very talented and creative
As part of the 
Something old, Something New,
 Something Borrowed, Something Blue Swap
OOh  I wonder what is in there?
I can hardly wait to unwrap this!
Such a beautiful box!
A sweet doily old and blue,
IS this not vintage wonderful?
A gorgeous frame,
A lovely dove brooch and hanky,
Isn't this just adorable? 
the periwinkle blue in those roses is fabulous!
But wait there is more!
This is a beautiful piece of art!
 I have it up hanging already!
I absolutely adore Michele Paper Medallions
She sell in her etsy shop and look what I received!
The cameo is to die for *sigh*
love the crocheted lace and the sweet hat pin.
And then she went and did this!
oops how did that get in there I ate as I unwrapped which 
truly made this swap better than Christmas.
No shopping for months wrapping for weeks
 and cooking for days,
just me, my gifts and chocolate!
Thank-you Michele for my wonderful treasures!
I will cherish them always,
It has been wonderful to make a new friend!
p.s love the tags too!
