Doily and Lace Swap

It is Saturday October 2nd, the door bell rang and the mail lady had a package for me.  I wasn't sure what it was because I had ordered some stamps, etc.  It was a box a good size box and it was from Susan Wanat my swap partner.  Right then I knew I had made a huge goof........................even if the box was filled with packing peanuts, which it wasn't I had not sent her nearly what she had sent me.

When I opened the box I could not believe my eyes, the first thing I pulled out was a beautiful hand made card, inside was a sweet sincere message.

Then I saw a lot of tissue paper and couldn't wait to dig into it, and when I did it just kept coming, beautiful lace ribbons, flowers, pearls, papers, rub ons, beads, and more beads, and more beautiful things.

Take a look and the pictures don't do it justice.

Have you ever seen so much gorgeous embellishments in one package?  Thank you so much Sue you are a  special giving person, Thank you Kirsty for pairing us up together, I think I have made another great blog buddy.
