Fabric swap and new shopping trolley

Two exciting happenings - discovered the above in a local hardware store and it just had to come home with me......
Also the postman delivered my fabric swap from Sue at Vintage from the Village .

Sue had wrapped it all beautifully:

First a photo of all the contents together:
Some wonderful large squares of green and pink fabric that coordinates wonderfully:
A tin of buttons in a tin in a little bag[more about the buttons later], various ribbons, a lavender sachet with an appropriate ribbon tag and two super mags that I had never seen before:
Larger pieces of fabric - two of which are children's prints and I hope I'll soon be able to tell you all, why this is so appropriate but I am sworn to secrecy at the moment:
A lovely card and some super brown coordinating squares:
And finally the contents of the button tin:
Haven't I been lucky?
Thanks so much Sue, its all wonderful and very ME.
