pretty pockets swap from rachel

I received my swap package from Rachel at Alice and Elsie for my Pretty Pockets Swap.

The organizer Rachel made me is so pretty:
Rachel spoiled me with:
colorful buttons:(I love that primitive heart button. Rachel said she would send me one after I gushed about it on her blog. She used one for a gorgeous paper bag album she made months ago),

lovely lace:
tiny books (found in her etsy shop here and here. I love these. I want to make some soon. Julie Collings has the tutorial on her blog here):
great ephemera: I love those vintage labels in the bottom right corner:acrylic stamps:
deep, blue-colored millinery flowers: this chipboard bird book:

I love, love, love my pocket organizer and all the goodies it contains:

Thanks Rachel! :)
