What Wonderful Bonnets!

 Lecia of Farmhouse Prims and I are online blog friends.  I know we'd be friends in "real life" too if we only lived closer. 

We've gone back and forth commenting on each other's blogs and emailing each other.  Earlier this year we decided to do a swap - baskets for bonnets is the name of the swap!

I think we are addicted to each others work, another swap was in order.  Today's mail brought the most delightful package........

A HUGE surprise in a TINY bonnet!  I'm not sure where I'll display this one yet, but for the photos, I placed it over a pottery piece that I have. 

I'm thinking it might stay here - it blends in so well with the other pieces displayed in this case.  
How adorable is this?


I should have started with this photo - Lecia wrapped everything up so prim and proper!  I think she knows that I LOVE burgundy.   

Lecia sent me 3 prim bonnets, one muslin stained and 2 calico's.  

Lecia,  Thank you so much for your generosity.  Your sewing & presentation is wonderful.

  9. Yes, your baskets and Lecia's bonnets are a good mix. I love the fabrics she uses. I have to really discipline myself every time I see her post new bonnets.

  13. How fun to have a friend to swap with. I like the burgundy bonnet, and yes, it matches with everything else on the shelf. I'm glad we can all inspire each other in our crafts. What would we do without blogging friends?
