A Box of Vintage Giveaway Love...

I received a box of the most wonderful treasures from Sharon of My Vintage Studio. She had a recent giveaway and I won! I had a ball sorting through these gifts, and love every, single thing she sent. Just look!
There's a vintage Hotpoint Stove Recipe book full of cooking ideas and photos that I'm promising to share with you later. Check out the fruity motif on the hobnail-edged dessert plate!
Sharon also sent along a honey (or syrup) dispenser in a sunny yellow, a vintage kitchen towel with a crocheted edge, and a crocheted potholder. I love those potholders and have a few others in different colors that this one will join. They're so nicely crocheted and I admire the perfect stitches created with fine threads. I almost hate to use them!

As I went through the contents of my package, I also found some great ephemera for my paper work. Great metallic crowns, paper flowers, an embellished paper frame, adhesive gems and multiple sheets of rub-ons. I'm looking forward to using them soon!
Finally, imagine my utter amazement to find a raffia-tied assortment of vintage postcards! Twenty one cards in all. Sharon, you spoil me beyond words. These cards are so beautiful, and I'll be taking photos and sharing them in future posts. Thank you!
If you're not familiar with Sharon's blog, please go visit her at My Vintage Studio. She always has something interesting to say. This past week, she's been generously sharing some of her vintage Valentine collection. So pretty!

Sharon's been suffering with Lupus flare-ups lately (she's written about it on her blog), so please offer up healing prayers on her behalf. I know she'd appreciate all our thoughts.

Thank you again, Sharon. I am bowled over by your generosity. Please feel better soon!
