Two Mystery Packages

Just in time for my birthday, I found two large and heavy packages on my porch.  Packages shipped from Kentucky!
See, my MIL is moving to an assisted living facility and she is getting rid of a lot of her items.  She asked if I wanted anything and of course I mentioned my vintage linen and dish addiction.  She was happy to oblige!
Box #1
Box #2
Now I haven't carefully gone through the boxes yet, but here's sneak peek!

It's going to be a bit overwhelming, but a fun overwhelming!

Perfect for entertaining or maybe (when I do start sewing) some fun projects.
She also sent this gorgeous flow blue bowl.  It's very interesting because it has feet on it.  Plus three pieces of silver.  These look very specialized so I'll have to determine what their original purpose was.

 Plus she sent some vintage purses too!  I just love the beaded ones, don't you?
Feels like a vintage birthday!

Thanks for buzzing along with me! 
 So nice to now you popped in for a little visit.

P.S.  Did I mention today is my birthday?
Well it sure is!
