Gifts from Afar

There are many things I love about the vintage community, and especially the vintage blogging community. There are so many women I have met through blogging that, while we may have never shared a warm hug of hello, I would call a friend. Through our mutual blogs, we peek into each others’ lives, learn about one another, and through comments and Facebook we build friendships over the internet.

One of these persons is Emileigh, of Flashback Summer. Not only does Emileigh have a very inspiring and interesting blog, she is also very sweet, and she recently thought of me when some Egyptian items came into her possession. She was very aware of my passion for Egypt, and my “adventurer chic” look, and she even did a guest post with her own spin on the look! Plus she used to live in Egypt! How neat is that? So I was very pleasantly surprised when a packaged arrived the other day with darling items from far off Egypt!

I can’t wait to wear the necklace, and Emileigh even mentioned that she had seen the coins made into jewelry! Something I may do myself one of these days! Thank you once again for your kindness and thoughtfulness, Emileigh!

  1. That was so kind of her! I love that necklace, it’s so pretty. It’s great that you’ve developed such a signature look that when people see an Egyptian necklace or a western themed dress, they immediately think of you.

  2. That is so immensely sweet and thoughtful. I really love the generosity, kindness and attention to each other’s interests that exists in our wonderful community. Thank you for sharing your new Egyptian treasures with us, they’re really, really cool!

  3. Wow, such a thoughtful gift – thank you for sharing them with us; I love the colour of the necklace, and it’s always nice to see foreign money, especially now in Europe we basically have the pound and the Euro…although Scottish money is often treated like foreign money in all but the northernmost part of England haha
