Found - treasure chest: After the meeting was finished yesterday I told Greg I needed to go downtown a bit. He commented that there'd be time to pick up the mail yet - 4:50 p.m. allowed ten minutes. Surprise, surprise - there was a great huge parcel for me. Though it was expected, it was not. Pauline, "sweet memories", had sent me a package for the CaC swap for March. My goodness - what a treasure box I found. Pauline, you are such a sweetheart. There were vintage pieces, so many papers, pictures, embroidery cottons, threads, buttons, the beautiful vintage postcard, one of my favourites from the package, a wonderful journal, the box everything was found in, fabrics, pom-pom trim, dangly bead trim. And the list goes on and on.
A connection has certainly been created. I have received many items that are very appropriate for altered books. Hmm, too bad I have so many WIPs, including the disastrous cleaning of that space for a studio. However, when I think about it, I am acquiring so many lovely presents - I NEED A SETTING IN WHICH TO DISPLAY THEM. Onward and upward.
To view the individual photos and to get a larger view please go to my flickr site.

Angels be with you.

Hi I am so glad you got your package...I was glad we got to connect through a few emails and I got to know what you like...I got those post cards, (one is actually on the box top) an antique store, when I first started blogging and Maryann had her Friday finds...probably around this time last year....when I started making a little more time for myself, and I am glad to send them on to you...I enjoyed meeting you so much.....and plan to keep in touch through blogging and future swaps...thank you for the wonderful post about the package....I didnt take any pics so they were nice to see....

Sweet memories to you today,

thinking of you and your daugther...

the gift of time
