Care Package from Meaghan

Recently, I wrote Meaghan from left hand endeavor and asked her if she wanted to swap care packages.  I was so excited when she too thought it was a great idea!  I have followed her blog for nearly a year now and to be honest, her blog was not only one of the first blogs I followed but also one that got me into blogging on fashion in the first place.  So needless to say, I was pretty psyched about getting post from her!  And boy, was I floored at the great package she sent!

Her letter written on an old hymnal. (And Charlotte is a bit of joke we have).  A book; The Edwardian Lady.  A beautiful kerchief, and rosette headband.  Vintage skivvy straps and a belt!

Two dresses; the black one is probably going to make its debut for a wedding I have coming up.  Also a wonderful dusty pink silk blouse!

The care package of course made my week.  It was sort of funny because I have been so incredibly busy that I actually forgot Meaghan was sending me something.  The package happened to arrive the same day as a book order I had made from Amazon.  I was far more excited about this than my silly books!  My week since then has been pretty low key.  Work just sort of lulled on and frankly, I am glad it is the weekend even if that means I am sitting at home doing nothing (it is supposed to rain all weekend).

Typical Friday outfit.  I found this necklace a couple of weeks ago when I was organizing all of my jewelry for my jewelry tree.  Its just cheapy plastic necklace from Target but something about it is just fun.  It is really like nothing else I own and I think that I why i like it so much.
