The mailman just came this afternoon and brought me the nicest box of handmade vintage goods from Marie of SPUN BY ME BLOG.  Now I am not bragging about a giveaway win but only wanting to share the talents and generous heart of one of our fellow bloggers.  If you are not familiar with Marie's blog you can check it out by clicking HERE.  She has a wonderful vintage style and some cute tuts you might enjoy.  The box I received today had the wonderful scent of lavender (one of my favorite scents, by the way) and was just full of beautiful vintage style handmades.

A ditty bag full of scented lavender buds and a gift certificate to Amazon:

A beautiful vintage journal:

A vintage style collage that will look beautiful hanging from my peg rack:

A vintage pocket size journal and a packet of  Earl Grey black tea in a decorative envelope adorned with little buttons.  I look forward to a cup of tea on one of these cold Michigan mornings.

A beautiful antique doiley along with two vintage in a zinc lid just ready for hanging and the other tiny and delicate fit inside a half walnut shell.

Some hand-stamped, decorated gift tags that will just be the perfect addition to some of my gifts this holiday season:

Now you are probably thinking....isn't that all in this goodie box.....but it isn't...there is still more.....

This delicately decorated burlap pouch which is also full of little goodies....some hand-stamped ribbon, a vintage picture frame made by Marie herself and last this adorable necklace.

You are such a talented and generous person, Marie, and I thank you for everything!

I also thought I would send out a reminder that THE BEARS BLOG and BUTTERMILK CREEK FARM will hold their first annual online craft show on November 3rd.  Here is a quick sneak peek at one of the items I will be offering:

What better way to say LOVE than handmade!  We hope you will plan to join us.  More information will be coming soon.
