Marie Antoinette Love

I received my Marie Antoinette Box from Wanda yesterday. This was the swap hosted by Jaime. Seriously, I don't know how Wanda did it. She started this and then in the middle of it all had to up and move to a new state. I would have been a complete train wreck trying to do everything she did during that time! Kudos to you Wanda!!!

When I opened the package there wasn't just a beautiful box in there, she also made this wonderful Marie tray and popped in a book too!

How pretty are those... love the fan!!! And that book... that's going to be a great read!

That beautiful box was chock full of goodies! There was all of this great ephemera... postcards, place cards, stickers and all of these wonderful papers punched into different shapes.

She added some bling... lots of glitter, flower sequins, rhinestone sprays and some different types of pearl sprays!

Buttons and pearls! This little bag was full of the gorgeous vintage buttons, as well as Marie's initials in rhinestones. And those pearls... perfect!

There was also some vintage millinery... love that soft, peach rose! And this sweet little posy of pressed flowers that someone a long time ago lovingly framed. At the very top of the box, covering everything was this pretty hankie... now you know how much I love hankies!!!

Now get ready for this... there was a lace and trim party happening in that box!!!

How gorgeous is all of that!!! And look, she went all the way to Nottingham to get me those beautiful tatted coasters! ;)

Wanda, I seriously cannot thank you enough! Everything is so WONDERFUL... I just love it all!!!
