Just wanted to post a quick thank you to Gretel of Middle of Nowhere for her wonderful package that arrived this morning. This was the first swap for vintage swaps and I am thrilled. The vintage classic book is entitled The Small Miracle and is about a poor boy whose best friend is a donkey. It must be a tear jerker though because the 1950's inscription in the cover speaks of crying through the movie version. She must have scoped me out pretty good because I also eceived a vintage apron with yellow roses on it (how did she know that is the state flower of TX all the way from the UK?), an antique tea cup with chocolate goodies and rose tea. And she sent the sweetest note. Thank you Gretel...I loved it all.
And if you have a minute, check out Gretel's blog from the link above. She is a children's illustrator and lives in the coolest little house in the middle of nowhere. It was tough picking out a vintage book that I thought she might not have already. xx xx fingers crossed she likes my package as much as I like hers.
** Gretel, I mailed your package two days after you mailed mine, so hopefully you will get yours tomorrow.**
