Thursday's goodies...

My frequent auction wins on eBay really do make life worth living sometimes. Today three more packages arrived. The crinoline ladies tin is smaller than what I had expected, but it doesn't matter. I am not sure what I will do with it yet - maybe even just put it on display with other CL items now and then.
The little picture was used by the eBay seller as a notecard to thank me for bidding on her auction. I will probably include this in my next vintage swap, as I don't collect such cards, but I know many of you do.
The crinoline lady doiley is just delightful - very happy with this purchase, as the stitching is lovely. The brightly coloured embroidered mat was described as an Aztec design, and I concur with this, although historically it may not be an apt title, I don't know. But there are two mats with the same design, and I just love the brilliant colours and design. Again, don't know where I will use them at this moment, but they will certainly be out there somewhere soon!
