My sweet Aunt Dorothy from Kansas (not that Dorothy!) was coming through town last weekend and met up with my Dad for lunch. I had to help my Mom that morning, so I wasn't able to see her. As it turned out, she had been doing some downsizing since a move and had been making up a box of things she thought I might like. I met my Dad on Wednesday and he handed me a huge UHaul moving box. Oh my goodness! I waited until I got home to start unloading it so I could take my time. I will say this. My Aunt Dorothy knows me very well!
The box was chock full of things suited perfectly for me. An Easter tablecloth with bunnies on it. Vintage children's books, vintage recipe booklets, satin lingerie boxes and lots more fun things. A German Christmas Candle Pyramid and lots, lots more.
Two sets of metal candle chimes (we love these things), lots of replacement candles for the chimes, a vintage angel tree topper (on the right) and a vintage angel with a pull cord that plays music.
Lots and LOTS of mini ornaments - needlepoint ones and lots of sweet little snowmen, some mercury beads and other fun vintage things.
A light up hurricane lamp with poinsettias. (Pardon the tacky photo background.)
And, the holy grail of all things vintage and all things Christmas.
Made in Poland ornaments!
(One box, she says she even saved from atop a trash can on trash night!)
Thank-you Aunt Dorothy! You know me well and I loved every bit of it.
It's not the first time she has gifted me treasures either. :)
