A Lovely Trade

Hello Fellow Thrifters and Friends,

    I had such a wonderful time trading with Michelle from My Reflections. See this post for the details of our trade. Michelle broke the rules and sent me the most amazing box of treasures my eyes could behold. I honestly thought after I opened the box I should send it back because I didn't deserve it. However Michelle put so much love and care into my box that I wouldn't dare do that, and I love everything in it. Here are the wonderful treasures she was so generous to give to me...

My excitement is building as I see treasures inside of this box waiting to be opened.

Here are my wonderful new treasures...

This chicken is an avon bottle! I was so jazzed to see this little guy when I unwrapped him. 

Sweet cookie cutters, and a cheerful yellow bowl.

I can't believe she gave me this amazing Pyrex. I just love each piece so much. 

We already put the Pyrex to good use

Sweet vintage apron. I love the heart pocket sewn onto it. 

Perfectly lovely avon pin. 

Trading was so much fun because it was a complete mystery, and that made it so much fun. I hope that Michelle enjoyed my treasure box.

  1. Thanks for dropping by for a visit! I love what you got from the trade, super cool Pyrex! :)

  2. Glad you liked it all and it all survived the long trip. Michelle and I had fun packing it all. Really cool that you wasted no time in baking some bread in that fridgie.

  3. I am SO happy that everything arrived safely! I had SO much fun putting things together for you. Things that I hoped you would love; and am very excited to find out you do. That was the BEST part of this whole experience for me. I LOVED seeing the baked bread and the coffee in your Pyrex mugs! :-) Made me smile. I'm sure I will love my treasure box and from the picture you posted you wrapped it so beautifully. With detail to the colors I love. I can't wait to open it. I am eagerly awaiting its arrival. I think it will be here Monday.

  4. What a gorgeous and generous parcel to receive, it's just lovely and so considerate! I can't decide what I love the most - the bright yellow bowl, the Pyrex pieces or little Avon pin!
