Parisian vintage treasures

I received lots of special mail while I was away. The generosity of bloggers always takes me by surprise & warms my heart. This package arrived from Petit Détails, all the way from beautiful Paris:
Petit Détails is one of my favourite blogs to read; an inspiring place to be, with beautifully stitched pieces, often using linen & sublime combinations of soft red, white & blue. There is a serenity & elegant simplicity about this blog that I really love. And I love to see the amazing vintage items she manages to find in the flea markets of Paris. What treasures she has unearthed! Here are just a few of the delightful images from her blog:
So of course, when Petit Détails was offering a chance in a giveaway of vintage fabrics, I had my name in the draw as a quick as a flash. And I was lucky enough to be drawn the winner! Her parcel arrived and beautiful it is!! All of it, right down to the birdy swing card & the lace tie! 
What really took my breath away was the red & white trim with my initials - that is VERY special. It will be treasured. I have a plan for making something special with these. Not sure how long it will take me to get around to it, but I have a plan! Back soon, with more special mail deliveries.
