A happy surprise!
Yesterday I got a wonderful surprise package! Well, the actual package was not a surprise because I knew my sweet mama was sending some cute new school clothes (and candy, of course!) to my sweet boys. I had no idea what treasures were awaiting me when I opened the box...

Sweet vintage baby photos, one of my favorite things to collect!
Some instant relatives. I love using these kinds of photos in decorating vignettes and in my collages.A handsome young lad. I love it when they are in their original matte like this!
A lovely young couple on their wedding day. Wonderful treasures!
But there was more...
a beautiful skirt with the most gorgeous colors and fabrics. I love the light and airy feel of the fabric- perfect for summer. I can't wait to wear it!She also sent some craft supplies and this pretty rose plate! I love it all! What a fun surprise!
Hoping you all have as lovely a week as I am!!!
Michelle xoxo
P.S. As I write this post I hear the sweet, happy squeals of my little Dylan as his big brother plays with him. What could be better? I am so blessed!!!

I loved old photo's until my sister in law told me one day it was weird to keep photos of dead people I don't know! I still have a few I couldn't bare to part with! Your's are very cute though! Isn't it fun to get packages. Have a great week! Traci
