I got my package pals gift from Melinda in Australia today! We got our packages on the same day which I thought was funny!
Vintage trims, a sheepish bag, pincushion and key fob pattern, hand written and drawn by Melinda…very sweet touch
and some maps of Australia with notes written by Melinda showing me where she lived…she is a nurse like me and so I was interested in seeing where she had worked on King Island.
This package was packed full of things…
like this sweet owl and flower necklace.
and this really cool vintage ship trim ribbon. Very cool!
A sweet owl fridge magnet and a tiny, tiny purse with a tiny embroideried lady on a button on the side, trimmed in pearls and very sweet!
This package was stuffed full of sweet things!
I just kept pulling little things out…
Sweet little fabric pouch…
and look at the tiny little embroideried rose on the tag of the pouch!
Then we have a tiny water color of violets in a planter…Melinda did this herself. I am looking for a tiny frame for it now.
but this is on the back of the painting…I like it too, but have to choose which one to frame!
And a paper bag full of vintage embroidery transfers. I love these dancing sailors, how great would they look dancing across a white flour sack towel?
And..then there’s this…
Hmmm, it’s a book with handles, or is it??
No, it’s a silk lined purse!
with a pocket…
So very cute!
There was also a pearl wrap bracelet which I wore to work today.
And the whole gift was wrapped in the vintage fabric you see in the background here! What a wonderful package pal gift! I am so glad I decided to sign up for the international partner!
Thanks Melinda for such a thoughtful package!! You clearly poured your heart into preparing it for me…I love all the personal touches!
You can see what I sent to Melinda here!
