I Received a Lovely Gift and Drew Some Price Tag Winners

Some days ago, I had the pleasure to find an envelope from Finland in our mailbox. Minna over at LUMIVALKOISTA had sent me the most wonderful buttons, some lovely laces, a beautifully embroidered handkerchief, pretty monograms and some other sweet bits and pieces. Don’t the goodies look yummy? The handmade buttons are simply amazing.

Thank you very much, dear Minna! It was very generous of you to spoil me with some of your fantastic flea market finds.



I know from your lovely comments that a lot of you liked the vintage price tags of my last post. Therefore I decided to do a little drawing and threw your names into the cup.

The following three winners will receive 10 tags each:
