Snail Mail Love

I absolutely adore getting letters or parcels in the post, very few things beat the thrill of being greeted with something lovely to unwrap when you arrive home, and lucky me I had a real treat yesterday: my Snail and Pigeon parcel arrived, all the way from Finland and sent by the lovely Meri.

The parcel swap introduced me to Meri's blog, The Evil Dressmaker, and I think she's a superb blogger! She is an incredibly talented seamstress, blowing me away with her recent bustle gown, plus she has a great sense of style, not to mention she writes every one of her posts in both Finnish and English! One very cool lady :) 

And she also puts together an incredible parcel, I couldn't be happier with what she's sent me!

My gorgeous set of goodies!

A lovely lace insert

Sweet floral handkerchief

Rose patterned fabric  

Vintage photos

Beautiful floral head band - my favourite :)

Aren't I a lucky lady? :) I'm sure I will be using the insert and the fabric in one of my projects soon - I quite fancy a pretty rose print vintage style apron!

So let me finish by saying a huge thank you to Meri for being so lovely and sending such a beautiful and thoughtful parcel. You've made me very happy indeed!

I'm so happy that you like everything. I forgot to mention on my note what everything is. Fabric is new but it was so cute vintage style pattern I just had to get it for you. Handkerchief is vintage and I believe it's never been used. Lace is probably from 80's or 90's but goes lovely for any vintage-style garment. Heandband I made myself and as I mentioned on the note, you can use the butterfly-pin separately aswell :) Btw, don't you just love those dark red lips on that girl in the photo.

Tasha - I know! I'm such a lucky girl!

Rhia - it's all so lovely Meri, I love it! I feel very lucky to have something handmade by you :) and that picture kills me, I love her lipstick and her hair looks just like mine in the morning :)

LandGirl1980 - I'm sure it's going to have to be a pretty country style apron, I've got a 1950s pattern that I'm dying to try out!
