Doily Swap with CCPB

Hi there everyone!  I finished work last night and stopped by the post box on my way home to discover a package from Ros in Liverpool!  
Yes, Liverpool!  
We are partners in the City Crafter Party Doily and Lace Swap.  Have you heard about these swaps?  It is my second one and they are so much fun!

Ros really spoiled me...I mean REALLY spoiled me.
The package arrived wrapped in yellow tissue and a yellow rose (for Texas?)
When I opened it I could hardly believe my eyes!
Ros made me this beautiful stitched vintage-ey card with a personal handwritten note inside.

The laces that Ros sent are exquisite!  I have never seen such beautiful laces...ever!  I have never dreamed of such beautiful laces...

There is a collection of teeny crocheted flowers.

A collection of white and cream paper doilies.
Some sparkly sticky tape too:)

Some beautiful lacey snowflakes and these gorgeous collars/triangular flaps...very romantic elements.

Thank you Ros for your generosity and beautiful package of treasures!  My heart is very, very happy and filled with gratitude!

Thanks Kirsty for putting this swap together, you have done a wonderful thing to pair people from all over the world in this swap!
Until the next swap...
