I participated in Sandy's Easter swap and she matched me up with Linda at lutka and co. . We have so many things in common that Linda could be my crafting twin! The first thing I see when I go to her blog is a post about how she collects retro (Dickson and Ardco) paper mache angel figures, other than myself she is the first one I've seen who does. We both have the same gold angel figure.
I had so much fun being her swap partner.
My box was filled with so many great goodies! Linda sent my a pair of her handmade bead earrings - not in pink ;), spring colored vintage linens, an Easter hand towel that MrL is under orders not to use so it doesn't get dirty, a bunny banner that is perfect for the mantel,the See's Easter candy didn't last long enough to get in the photo. I was so touched that she sent temporary tattoos for the little munchkins at school.
That was just the beginning... A German Nestler egg, I love the image of the bunny sleeping under the cottonwood tree and a happy moon after a long day hiding eggs. Linda told me when she went thrifting she kept seeing angels, so now I have two more paper mache ones. It's funny because when I went thrifting I was looking for paper mache angels to send to her, but alas I didn't find any.
All that and I haven't even gotten to the spoolie yet! Doesn't it make you think of spring and all types of happy thing? I smile every time I look at it. And if that wasn't enough I got two spoolies!! Want to see the best Easter spoolie ever?!
If your not into geeky British science fiction TV then you won't know what Dr Who is, but luckily for me Linda's daughter does and convinced her to make a Dr Who Easter spoolie. When I saw this I was laughing and jumping around the kitchen in excitement. I love that Linda thought outside of the box and came up with a non-traditional spoolie.
