Have you seen all the fabulous vintage button swap packages out there? Wow. I was the lucky recipient of a sweet bundle of goodies from my favorite Portland crafty mama, the "other" Portland that is. Don't you love the packaging [check out her hang tag]?
Not only did she include some wonderful vintage buttons [love the fabric cards] and black and white fabric [and you know how I have a thing for b+w fabric!], but she put it all in this cute little linen tote. [Thank you, Amanda!]
I sent her a bundle of orange + green goodies. More photographs here.
I also received some wonderful swap hostess gifts. Lucky me! Kirsten sent me some handmade buttons with the boys' faces on them [so sweet!] and vintage buttons + trim. [Thank you!]
For those who missed out on the first round of the vintage button swap, I'll plan to organize another round sometime late fall. Would people be interested in a vintage fabric swap? I know how difficult it is to part with vintage fabric, so I was thinking of swapping small pieces [perfect for patchwork].
Oh, and THREE more days until Appah returns from Asia. We cannot wait!
