The first package contained my lovely new trousers! I ordered them from Dangerous Garbs on Etsy. I am completely in love with them. They are super comfy and very flattering. I was terrified they wouldn't fit, but they are the perfect size for me! Canadian winters can get rather cold and snowy, and since I have 40 minute walk to school (and another 40 minutes back), wearing trousers is a necessity most days. These pants are definitely going to become a staple in my wardrobe.
When I have time I will have to get some better photos. These pictures don`t do the trousers justice!
The second package contained the prize I won from a giveaway over at Subversive Femme. Despite knowing what was included in the giveaway, I was still amazed when opening the package by how much stuff there was! These treasures have already been looked at and carefully put away so as not to get lost in the mess that is my sewing room at the moment. But before I put them away I thought I would share a few scans some of the lovely items she included. (But first go check out her blog! It really is a great blog and she posts some lovely free vintage knitting/crochet patterns!).

|This may have to be my next knitting project.|
|Or maybe this one!|
She also included a notebook, a red lipstick, and a sweet little brooch, all of which I forgot to photograph.. Oh well, I'm sure they will make an appearance on the blog sooner or later...
And before I go, I just have to share with you my new shower cap. I basically just cut a large circle from an old umbrella and sewed an elastic to it. Isn't it adorable?
