A Very Vintage Christmas Package Arrives!

I participated in Cristina's

She used this beautiful paper . . . 

. . . to make a pouch to hold all the treasures!

Some of the papers were loose, 

like this great wrapping paper.
I'm pretty sure my grandma had this paper when I was a kid!

Some were packaged,

like this,

and this by Hope,
my Silver Bella '09 "big sis,"

and this by Cristina's wonderful mama, Catherine,
who most certainly had a hand in getting these to us!

I recognized my friends' packets, but I haven't opened any of the others yet. To all the participants, thank you from the bottom of my heart for your creativity and generosity in sharing such lovely pieces.  I can't wait to use these! 

I'm afraid I forgot to include my cards with my contribution, so to see the items I sent, click here
