Very Vintaage Halloween swap packages and Barbie Wednesday

Heidi Ann of Foxgloves, Fabric, and Folly Hosted a Very Vintage Halloween swap.

Mom's (Twyla's) partner was Kathy of Kat Collects.

Isn't this little bird precious?

Kathy was very careful to wrap everything pretty.

Kathy spoiled me with lots of goodies.

We are enjoying this beautiful wall hanging above our fireplace mantle.

This little box just took my breath away. When I opened it and saw the little bird inside I thought it was one of the most beautiful things I'd ever seen!

Thank you so much Kathy, for making this such a rewarding swap. Not only because of the sweet things you sent, but because of your friendship!


My partner was Stacey of Flotsam and Jetsam. I had such an amazing swap package. I opened up my package to find this gorgeous Paper Relics Halloween card! WOW!

Inside it was filled with lucious vintage ric rac and ribbon. Beautiful velvety purple flowers made me jump for joy!

Vintage paper ephemera and cute little pumpkins were wrapped in lovely black and white tissue paper.

Isn't this little cheetah girl is so cute! Don't you just love her tag?

She also gave me some cute vintage goodies from her flea market booth.

I love the pink cars!

These vintage Halloween images are so precious!

Now I want to show you what else Stacey gave me! A VINTAGE BARBIE AND VINTAGE CLOTHES! I could not believe it!

Look at all the cute clothes! I can't even begin to thank her enough for all that she gave me!

She gave me a Bubble Cut Barbie! Here are just some of my favorite outfits and shoes that I got!

Stacey also gave me a couple other really awesome gifts that I am going to save for tha Halloween party that Vanessa of A Fanciful Twist is hosting on October 18th.
Thank you for visiting us today, Lindsey and Twyla

Hi Twyla, I LOVE the vintage Halloween items. And say...I heard today that it was 50 years ago that the Barbie was introduced. How cool is that? :)
