the sweetest treasures


One of the sweetest treasures to have are from those of dear friends. I was so excited when Renee of My Vintage Mending opened her beautiful Etsy shoppe last week!!
The prettiest vintage wrapping!
With cute goodies inside! How adorable are those mini tags!! 
And inside the bag...this beautiful vintage feed sack butler apron!! Oh my, isn't it gorgeous!! 
Such delicate and pretty details, with a vintage tea towel adorned with crocheted edging and beautiful blue floral feed sacks!! All of these just make my heart so happy!
A truly beautiful creation Renee!! Thank you so much for one of the sweetest vintage treasures!! 
And, what better timing to win a wonderful baking handbook in a giveaway from the most lovely Sherri of Little House in Paradise! Thank you so much Sherri for a generous and sweet gift! There are so many yummy recipes!! A few of my favorite are the Pistachio Tartlets with Créme Fraîche and Berries, Lemon Madeleines, Chocolate-Glazed Gingerbread Cakes, and Lemon-Blueberry Napoleons!! I better get my new apron on, and start baking!! 
I was also so lucky to win a little giveaway from Twyla and Lindsey of Two Crazy Crafters
Inside the package were these adorable tags, and other sweet goodies!! They are both so creative!!
This vintage patriotic tag is what I won in the giveaway. Isn't he is so adorable, and all the details are beautiful!! Thank you Lindsey for creating such a precious tag!!

Thank you all for your sweet comments on the lovely Natalie of Take the Cannoli! She is the greatest!! There is still time for my little giveaway over at her blog, so head over, if you haven't already! Wishing you a wonderful day!

  10. So many lovely treats in your mail! I have never heard of a 'butlers' apron and must say that I am smitten with this one with the pretty color combination and detail. Also, those clever, cute tags..all of these ladies have so much talent, I must go pay them a visit.

    I am pleased that you are happy with the book and hope you enjoy many yummy treats from the pages. xo

  13. Those aprons remind me of my mom and my aunts, who regularly used feed sacks for pillowcases, tea towels, and aprons. We live in such a different, throw-away society now, for we didn't have to live through The Great Depression. People made do with what they had. It's nice to see some people now re-purposing things, rather than just discarding. Nice post!
