Sundry goods from the Vintage Swap

Last week I received a package from Nicola, my vintage swap partner, that was just brimming with vintage goodness. The box was filled with things in yellow and blue hues, so it felt like opening a box of sunshine and blue skies. 

I love everything Nicola sent, especially this mustard tin. It's gorgeous!

I'm excited to dive into the vintage embroidery floss and to find the perfect project to use those lemon chiffon-colored buttons.

Thank you so much, Nicola! 

Be sure to check out Nicola's blog Which Name? She's got a lot of tips on frugality that I'm hoping to adopt! Oh, and she's posted about the vintage items I sent her, which is good because I didn't get  a chance to take any pictures before I sent off the package.

For those of you interested in the Vintage Swap, the next one will be in April. I had a really fun time participating in this one and getting to know lots of new bloggers. It was much harder to shop for someone else than I expected, but I enjoyed being able to say to K, "But honey, I have to go shopping again this weekend. I just have to!" 


  1. What an awesome package! Your partner really put some thought into selecting these little goodies. I'm heading over to her site to see what you got for her. And Allison -- you never need an excuse to shop!

  2. Love those colors! And yes, that tin is high on cool factor. I saw what you sent-off...very nice finds.

  3. Looks like you got some lovely things. :)

  4. It looks like a lot of fun! I hope you find a great use for those things!

  5. You certainly made out well here! Look at that blue and yellow again (like in the Tyrol Hat). I haven't received my package yet, but I'm told it is on the way.

  6. so glad you liked the items, allison!
    i have been enjoying yours!
    Which Name?
