Lovely Things Part I: Secret Valentines Swap

Just look at the utterly beautiful things I got in the post from the very talented and generous What Katy Did Next. Two handmade, hand-beaded and delicately lovely corsages, one a headband with chiffon, organza and vintage lace flower in pistachio green, one a romantic floral brooch in peach. I can't wait to wear them! And, an amazing calico tote bag with a hand-printed design and fabulous black sequinned heart, perfect as a much-needed new shopping and book bag.

I'm overjoyed with my gifts, which are part of the Secret Valentines Swap, created and curated by the lovely fashion designer and embroiderer extraordinaire Alicia Rose. For regular updates and wonderful things from both Katy and Alicia, use the following links:

They are amazing! And I don't think I've ever seen such a beautiful tote before either.
