Pretty Little Packages

“Everytime you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.” Mother Teresa

Pretty Little Packages for my swap partner Wendy of Windy Angels. She asked for a theme of vintage fabric and the beach which has been the best fun to work with.

While out looking for fabric at the thrift store unearthed the most amazing treasures

Framed vintage picture of dancing islander girls

and a surf shirt that I grabbed because the fabric looked good, felt like pure cotton but on further investigation, has real French Finished seams, beautifully stitched and real wooden buttons. Only one tiny tag remains identifying it as Silver Surfer.

This old shirt looks like it has stories to tell, I could not bear to cut it up for the stocking and used it as wrapping instead. Good thing too this stocking is brimming over & bursting out all over with little packages of goodies.
