Cozy Blanket's Vintage Children's Book Swap!

First off, Thank You to Debby at Cozy Blanket for hosting the vintage children's book swap.  What a great idea.  I never think of anything like that.  Secondly, I was lucky enough to be paired with Nan, Retired in Alaska for the swap!  My goodness Nan must know me well even though we are 3000 miles away.  Would you just look at the glorious stuff that she sent to me!
It was all I could do not to get up and jump around the room like I was a kid.  I probably would have had I been at home but because our mail delivery at home is sketchy I have things delivered to my office in town.
I forgot to take a picture of the paper doll sheet by itself, but you can see how darling it is right there on the right of this photo.

Oh little bunny head, how cute you are and he is now residing in my happy shelves in the kitchen.

An adorable plastic children's plate!  See the little children in the pods?  So cute!  Also living in my happy shelves.

A cute as can be red doll dress.

Two of the cutest little books.  The illustrations in the Fairy Tales book look very familiar to me and I am wondering in I had this book when I was little.

Two vintage designs that she has put onto fabric.  I believe these are destined to become pillows.

Such a sweet Christmas cut out of a kangaroo.

And how did she know I love vintage cards???  These designs are so pretty!
This package just made my day yesterday, as I had had a terrible migraine the night before and feeling the effects of the medication for it yesterday when this arrived.  It perked me right up!
Wishing everyone a wonderful Tuesday!

Hi Linda your package to me came today and I am blown away by all those zippers!!! YES I can use them believe me always in need of a zipper and all the other sewing notions I can really use too since we can't buy them here in town. Loved the sweet books, I think I saw one of these over on Renee's blog! The blouse pattern, how did you know I never can get these and really am in need to make more blouses!! Thanks so much for being so generous and that darn postage is so high too!! Nan
