Fantastic Mail Day

I came home from work to boxes sitting by my door. Love to get boxes. I am in a cigar box swap for Artistic Affaire Deux in Oct so I ordered some from Etsy. They are perfect to be altered.

My sister bid on a box of patterns at an auction and lucked out and won the auction. I am the lucky recipient of old old patterns, button cards, and old needle cases. Thank you Jo I love them. She also included a Flea Market Finds book. It will be going to California with me this weekend,

The patterns. A few of the many she sent

Vintage button cards and needle cases
