Textile swap

This was my first time participating in a swap. Char sponsored a textile swap this time. My swap partner was Kim over at up on a hill blog. I was thrilled with all my goodies.
She and her hubby made me the blue wooden scoop and she filled it with several ragball she made. They are homespun with felt stars on them. Isn't the flag pillow she made just perfect.

I couldn't believe the work she put into this heart sewing kit. I simply love the attention to detail and it's so prim. Lovin it.

This little stitchery touched my heart beyond words. It is a personalized saying that includes "Cavaliere's" our last name. It is a special piece.

Kim had read my blog post about my salts and she sent along some beautiful heart pillows she made from old embroidered pillowcases and a crocheted doily. I have a shelf in my china closet(that isn't very prim......know anyone who wants to buy a curved glass Victorian china cupboard) where I have a display of my DH and I as children with a wedding picture and the glasses,knife and cake topper from our wedding. They all fit so well on this shelf and it is just what it needed.

Thank you again Kim for all my special goodies. You are truly a special person to put all the attention to detail that you did into my swap with you.

I went shopping with a frien of mine today to 4 yes count them 4 prim shops and 3 antique shops. I am in overload. I did take some pictures but my camera was losing battery power so I only have 1 or 2. Iwill post tomorrow with those pictures. I will be posting the finished chimney cupboard tomorrow also.
The girls get home tonight so it's back to sharing the computer.
