A sweet packaged arrived last week from a dear friend that made my heart full of happiness and pure excitement.
Wrapped in vintage sewing paper...
an adorable birthday card and a glassine bag wrapped with sweet pink flower fabric and filled with...
these pretty treasures that brought the largest smile to my face. I adore vintage tea towels, and these are so beautiful! The tiniest vintage crochet hooks (which I hope to give a try soon), and a gorgeous vintage rose birthday card.
And underneath this pretty tape...
a most beautiful vintage hankie pillow so perfectly sewn and stitched together that makes my heart so happy. Miss Renee of My Vintage Mending keeps me in awe of her talent and the attention to detail that she puts into everything she creates.
The prettiest back with scallops and cute yellow buttons.
Sweet trimmings and ruffles add the perfect touch.
A gift that will be treasured and loved for many, many years, and is already in the perfect place ready for me to sew and stitch away!
Thank you so much Renee for a beautiful gift and friendship! To see more of her amazing creations you can visit Renee's shoppe. Happy Monday and wishing you a lovely week!

So sweet of you to show me where you keep it..I thought of you when I found those hooks in a lot I grabbed at a sale. They were so dainty I knew only Miss Heather would be able to see the value of them. Big smiles...ReneeReplyDelete

Renee is amazingly talented, and very sweet and thoughtful too. A great combo if you ask me! How wonderful that you can look at that sweet pillow every day. I do hope Keren loves the quilt, or at least her daughter. When I think about it, every quilt I have made except for a couple wall hangings have been given away. I don't even have one myself. Crazy, huh?
I love the tea towels, and yes those are some teeny tiny crochet hooks! I have some of my grandmothers. I did some thread crochet to make little tiny doily dresses for some dolls, but other than that I know better than to try to make anything big, I might never finish it. Have a wonderful day my sweet friend!
Hugs and blessings,
Oh, I am sure Keren's sweet daughter will love the quilt you make her, and it will be treasured! How wonderful to have some from your grandmother! I am amazed out how they crocheted with them, being so small. I will definitely being trying something small! Have a beautiful week! xo HeatherDelete
