Several weeks ago, Maureen over at Victorian Studio took us on a really cool tour of her new Victorian studio where she creates her beautiful crafts and cards. It's wonderfully organized with great furniture pieces, and she has a knack for thrift shopping. At the end of her tour, she was having a giveaway. All you had to do was comment and then you were entered in the contest. This was on or about July 13th. Well I plumb forgot about it till I saw a recent post announcing the winner. To my utter delight, it was me!!!!!!
My package arrived covered in Canadian stamps, as it winged its way from Winnipeg, Manitoba (aka "Winterpeg"). At first I thought it was from Italy, because it says, 'Fra-GEEE-lay'. ;-D
I find it ironic that the 'Fragile' side of the box is the one that got punched in. The whole box looked like it had been through some hard times.
Luckily it was filled with packing peanuts which kept the contents from breaking!
Maureen is a very gifted artist and made this beautiful card. I tried to take a picture of the amazing texture but it didn't come out.
Inside was this great large lace doily and this lovely little china set.
See how tiny? I used a nickle to show scale.
An amazing silver tray that reminds me of scallop shells.
3 roles of old lace
Salt shakers and some fun bits!
This is amazing. It's a shell design on black velvet and very 'fra-GEE-lay'.
And some vintage BINGO cards!!!
How very cool and how lucky am I?!?! Thanks again Maureen!!
