A surprise package!

When I got to work this morning, there was a package sitting on my desk from my sister, Joan. (Now, that girl knows how to pack a box - it took me 15 minutes just to get the tape off!)
It was full of all kinds of wonderful treasures: bags, and bags of old antique buttons - some glass, some with rhinestones, and two, large pink ones that are my favorites. She also included some beautiful old Christmas balls, that are already hanging on my tree. The tone on tone fabric ribbon is sooo pretty! (I can't decide what I like better - ribbon or buttons....?!)
I loved the two cards of vintage jingle bells, and I would use them, but I don't want to take them off the sweet cards they're on. And last, but not least, are the fantastic old earrings to use on my creations.
Yep, my sister knows me pretty well!
