I recently participated in a Vintage Vacation Swap. I was partnered with the lovely Sophie in the United Kingdom. It's always fun to get mail from overseas.
I especially love these labels:
I feel like the Queen!
Sophie sent me TWO vintage vacation destinations.
First, the seaside.
An wee suitcase filled with vintage postcards, envelopes and stamps, seashells, a dainty soap, a piece of candy, a sweet handmade Beach Hut Pincushion and some Cath Kidson tissues. I adore that teeny little bucket of sand tools and lollipops.
Second destination: LONDON.
A fun tote bag with a Double Decker Bus on it, Transit tissues, English Afternoon Tea and an actual Double Decker Bus. Well, not an actual one, but a wee cute one.
I (Heart) this bus.
All the loot.
As usual, I forgot to take photos of what I sent Sophie.
I made her a Vintage "Across the USA" Vacation package that included this little gal, vintage souvenirs from across the USA, various Patriotic themed decorations and a packet of my favorite summertime drink..... Kool-Aid. Sophie said she was excited to try the Kool-Aid. I didn't think I was being too clever sending the Kool-Aid, so I was happy to hear that she had never tried it. Thinking of a sweet treat to send across the pond in this heat was a feat within itself.
(Am I the only one that gets photos like this when I am trying to take pictures of my swaps and finds????)
