Rosette Swap

Today is the day we get to show off our rosettes! (YEA) It was a secret who our partner was until we received our rosette package in the mail. I finally get to reveil who my rosette swap partner is, and I'm just wondering how she knew my favorite colors! I just love everything about this rosette, especially the colors! Thanks sooooo much http://lipstick-gypsy.blogspot.com/! Another big thank you to Jill from http://gypsyfleamarket.blogspot.com/ for hosting such a fun swap party! Jill is such a sweetheart, it is just amazing to me the wonderful people I've meet thru blogging. I just love Jill to death and have never personally got to meet her! After she received my rosette package she sent me the most beautiful email, it made me cry, it was the sweetest email ever! I'm so hoping that I get to go to the Warrington/Roundtop Antique Flea Market that's coming up soon, I would love to meet her!

Well all I could say is OMG, when I opened, ( I mean tore into my package) sorry I didn't take a picture of the pretty box before I ripped into it! My rosetee was just breathtaking, over the top Gorgeous!!! I just can't say enough about how beautiful it is. I just love it! Thanks so much !!!
http://lipstick-gypsy.blogspot.com/Just look at all the beautiful crinkled ribbon and a pretty pink little tassle hanging from it!
I just love the feathers and it's adorned with a beautiful brooch in the center!
Not only did I receive this beauty of a rosette, but lots of other goodies came with it! Just take a look!
Look at this sweet little hankie, with the lovely little roses on it.
Oka this soap smells so good, I haven't opened it yet, I just hate to take the wrapping off it's so pretty!
Sweet little bags of tea
I love, love, love this adorable little silver spoon, and love the saying on it.
I also received a precious little dish with beautiful roses all over it and a sweet little brooch, the brooch is laying on the hankie, and the dish is behind it. Sorry I didn't add the close up pictures to my post, ( I forgot) and I don't know how to go back and add them after I've already got the post up. If I figure out how to add them I will, but they are in the above picture, with the other items! Just click on the picture to enlarge!

This was another little bag inside my box, couldn't wait to tear into it either!
This was what was inside, little roses, beautiful lace, and vintage buttons!
This was the beautiful card I received, with such sweet words written! Be sure to go by and check out http://lipstick-gypsy.blogspot.com/, I've already visited and her blog is just beautiful!!!

Not Much Time Left

That is until the doors open for Laurie Annas Vintage Home, Fall Preview, Aug, 28 9:am. From what I saw while I was there unloading some of my purses and pillows, all I can say is OMG get ready to see the most over the top drop dead gorgeous displays, and the most fabulous treasures to be found! Be sure and mark your calenders!!!I got a few little sneak peeks to show you while I was there!

This picture is absolutely beautiful of the lady, my photo is a little blurry so it's hard to tell just how gorgeous it really is!

These are some of the pillows that I took over yesterday!

I couldn't decide if I wanted to put a rosette on this little pillow or not, I decided not to, but a rosette or a vintage brooch could be added!

I just love these colors together!

Be sure and don't forget to mark your calenders for Aug, 28 9:am!
