Japan/California Swap is a bit French

Swap Details:
Swapper1: Anjali Japan, Asia
Swapper2: Laurence California, USA

French stuff from California goes to Japan.
This time I traded with the charming Laurence, who is from France, but is now living in L.A. She went above and beyond for me, and in general was just a lovely person to email and swap with.

She sent me some beautiful vintage fabrics (including a vintage red polka-dot linen from Russia), lace, embroidery floss, red buttons, dishtowels, notecards and French sweets. And doesn't everything look so pretty together? I almost don't want to ruin it by actually using anything...but I will.

Japanese Goodies go to California!
Imagine my excitement when Anjali, the Queen of swaps, agreed to do a swap with me...! It was Christmas coming early. Her choice of fabrics was just perfect.. i mean, seriously, do they get any cuter?! So i'm glad to say that those little cute bears and elephants have found a loving home! The Simple Chic book is amazing and the Cotton Friend magazine remains my
favorite magazine! Thank you so much Anjali! I hope you enjoy your goodies as much i enjoy mine :)
Also a big thanks to the Gimme team!
