Vintage cuteness galore...

As I may have mentioned a few times, my daugher Chloe turns three on Monday! This inspired my Vintage Party Swap which is in full swing now. If you're in the swap and haven't mailed yet, Monday the 14th is the deadline. Also please continue to add your photos to the flickr pool. So I am in full party mode now and the color theme seems to be pink and greens/blues this year. Similar to last year, but a bit richer tones. So of course I couldn't pass up this amazing wreath from one of my favorite artists Katie Runnels .
One of my partners for the Vintage Party swap was Lori of goodygoodygumdrops. This girl should be a party planner. Look here, she thought of everything! The party favors are pink spoons with a darling vintage image and lots of fun embellishments. She made a banner that says 'Celebrate' that is oh so festive!

She made Chloe this darling "c" covered in scrapbook papers. She even altered cupcake pics to go with the vintage girlie theme.
Last but not least, she gave us a little jar to fill with Chloe's "pixie dust". I told you she thinks of everything! So cute and fun, Lori. Thank you!
Along with the vintage party swap I did a few mini swaps on the side, since I had bits and pieces of vintage party goodies to give away. Britt was interested in swapping and sent this gorgeous package of more vintage girlie goodness (above) in return for some vintage baby shower stuff I sent her. Love it all!
Vintage Indie hosted a spring swap and my partner Maria sent me these wonderful vintage finds that also happen to be in the party colors. I can't stop staring at this ribbon. Wow!

Another side swap I did was with shocking pink thread. She sent me a variety of fun supplies to use for projects.
I absolutely adore these fabric pieces. Can't wait to use them:)
Finally, a huge package came from Wanda Clark. She wasn't my partner for the swap, but said she had "extra" supplies for the mommy and me craft theme for her partner and sent them my way. These are her extras....they blew me away! What fun Chloe and I will have.
I would say I have plenty of inspiration and fodder for the big day!!!

You have a wonderful assortment of stuff. I'm sure you and Chloe will have a big time. It's so nice to see mothers teaching their daughters crafts. Mine are grown and I did try, as I've always crafted, quilted, gardened, etc. But they weren't interested. The odd thing is, everything I tried to relate to them is now so in vogue! Maybe they're not laughing at Mom and her cheerful, bright colors any longer!

How cool...that you've got so many wonderful friends to swap with! I'm just getting started - your vintage party swap is my first, and I'm having so much fun! I hope (aspire) to be as "connected" to crafty folks as you are someday. Everything looks wonderful...
