Flowers, Sparkle, and Velvet...oh my!
Hello dear friends! My sweet mama finally received her birthday gifts in the mail so now I can show you what was hiding in those boxes! I didn't photograph everything, but in the "velvet" box there was pink velvet ribbon, a pink velvet flower and this gorgeous and quite large vintage velvet strawberry pincushion. Now mama knows just how much I really love her since I restrained myself from keeping this for myself! :) Isn't it just too yummy?
In the "sparkle" box there was vintage style silver tinsel, a small glittered crown and this beautiful and very sparkly crown broach. And the "fluers" box was filled with vintage millinery flowers. Some of these went to mama and some I kept for myself. I have fun plans for them! Aren't these just the prettiest spring colors?I found this darling vintage card for her. I adore vintage cards. They always have the sweetest sentiments. Here is what it says inside. And it's all true. A perfect description about how I feel about my dear sweet mama! It's even more perfect because she loves roses and has an amazing rose garden.I tucked this darling little vintage embroidered linen piece in with her other gifts, too. The colors are divine and that lace edging is just so pretty!In my next post I will show you some of my recent finds and tell you all about my fun road trip! Wishing you all a Happy Valentine's Day!
Michelle xoxo
