Cool Stuff From My Friends

My friend Jamie had some angels that she wanted to trade me for a Danish teak candle holder I had. I was thrilled to get them:
I feel so lucky that sometimes she will pick up something she sees at a thrift store, just because she knows I would want it! How nice is that? Among those items were this pillar candle holder for my growing collection that she found at Salvation Army (which just recently closed here in Sonora, by the way.):

And this glorious trio of angels she found recently in Pioneer:

And my friend Faith in Michigan sent me boxes full of stuff!
Included among the treasure trove was this pair of See's Candies vehicles, which happen to look pretty great displayed with my See's Barbies:

This pretty little clip-on lace piece that looks lovely at the neckline of this vintage sweater I found at a yard sale:
A gorgeous vintage barkcloth pillow cover:

She sent me a ton of vintage needlework and crafts books from the 70's and 80's, and a bunch of neat vintage patterns, too - like these:

Thank you so much to my girlfriends - I appreciate not only your friendship, but also your thoughtfulness and generosity.

Seeing those angels sent me hurtleing back in time to the early 1970's to my Aunt Nadene's house at Christmas time. She had angels almost exactly like those. Ahhh.... those were the days.

See's Candies and Mattel had a tie-in?

I love all the little angel girls together! I'm having Salvation Army withdrawal. Have you been to the new thrift store on South Stockton? I love all the goodies from Faith. I remember when she would take orders for See's suckers at the post office. Thank you Faith! Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful. Chuck thought he saw you and your sis walking downtown Thanksgiving day. See you soon.
