I received today! Sorry it took me so long to get home and post pictures... late night at work. Bah. But this package made it all better! Seriously!
So... first, I was worried, because the package clearly had "fragile" written on it in several places but was completely crunched on one side. It always seems to be the stuff you mark as "fragile" that gets abused... *sigh* But good news! Nothing was broken, which is amazing and a testament to calixita's mad packing skills because.....
Dr Who glasses! They're exactly the style we like and use (pub style) and are perfect! It is soooooo hard to get a good picture of the detail, but it's a semi-outline of the Tardis. That kinda... hint? I don't know what you call it, but it's cool and looks subtle but unmistakable. Here's the best I could do on the detail, which isn't much, but...
These are going to get a LOT of use. My hubby even said "these are really nice glasses!" So, hey, that's pretty amazing! (He's one of few compliments)
Next, I unwrapped...
I always put Rosemary and Thyme because I LOVE the show, but I never really expected anyone to craft from it, because... well, I dunno what you'd craft! But that just goes to show you I'm not as imaginative as calixita (I did want to do something amazing and unexpected, I just... couldn't think of anything this grand!), because it's not just a cover, no....
...the inside encompasses both flowers and DEATH!
(Which, if you didn't know, is the theme of the show, gardeners who get caught up in an improbable number of murders! I just adore the characters, wish they'd made more episodes...)
Then, onward! To...
Coasters! I desperately needed some, and I'm glad she took the hint.
The painting on these is amazing and soooooo cool! All marbley and spacey and awesome! One is already in use.
And then... AND THEN!
A RED NEEDLEBOOK!
Which looks awesome, and then you realize, as I told my husband, that's alllllllll beads.
Him: Well, the eyes are. The hair isn't.
Me: Um, yeah, no, that whole front is beads.
Him (looking closer): I guess it is. Wow, that is a TON of work.
YES IT WAS AND IT'S MINE ALL MINE!
Ahem. Yeah, it's cool... *whistles innocently*
And to top it off, not the biggest, but... it has a soft spot in my heart...
Plan 9 from Outer Space magnet! One of the best of the worst movies ever!
Thank you soooooo much calixita! I just hope you like anything in your package as much as I like my stuff, you were an AWESOME partner!
