Three Little Chicks...



Once there were Three Little Chicks sent to me one fine spring day....

Sweet, sweet and creative Nancy, over at My Crafty Little Page... Just look at what she sent me for Vintage Indie's "I Dream of Spring Swap" ! Miss Nancy has a way of packaging everything oh so cute, don't you agree? There is so much goodness in there... the vintage Dick and Jane flashcards are soooo cool- perfect for my three cute little chicks! And the chick pick is sooooooo cute in her little vintage storybook lined pot! ( It's a bummer I don't have a close-up of it) :(
So, that is mama chick, then she sent 3 little flocked chicks (thus, my three little chicks- are ya getting the theme here?) and she even sent one of her oh-so-cute handmade button arrangements she was making for a local women's group in her community! She wrapped the wooden spool with a strip of a vintage children's storybook page, and covered the top and bottom too... even with chicks on them! And just look at the beautiful embroidered and crocheted hankie... oh I just love this!

And get this.... she loved and was inspired by the pictures of my three little snow chicks when we had our snow day in Texas back in March, that she made a little scrapbooking ensemble, a tag for each of them with their names, ALL set on vintage Dick and Jane cards with the letter of their first name! And a "Snow Day in Texas!" tag- OH it's just so creative! I love them and can't wait to use them! And to the left of those, are three little Mary Engelbreit book tags! Very springy! They say, "That's What Friends are For"... and that's exactly what she is, a new found friend! Thank you so much Nancy!
She was such a joy to shop for as my partner in the swap... she said that I was psychic or went to her house at night and made notes for what she would like- LOL She has apparently liked what I had sent her:


I just loved the little plastic teapot napkin holder... and the crocheted trivet was beautiful!
It was really fun! Go look and see the matching "sets" she ended up with!
Then check out all the group photos on Flickr.

Very cute Shannon but I'm afraid I had a better partner than you did! I still have one thing to send to you. I really loved swapping with you and love your blog. I'll go check out the group photos. Biggg Huggggs, Nancy

I've only done a couple of swaps but they are so fun! Getting that package from someone you've never "met" with tastes so similar to your own. God is so good to give us this way to meet each other! Blessings... Polly
