My Fairy Loot, let me show you it...
Here is the opened box, full of possibilities...
Beautiful card! I love how the faded color of the old-time photo looks on the aqua glittery background.
Ooooh what is this surprise? My partner knows me well and knows my greatest chocolatey weakness.
This is a gorgeous postit notebook. Who doesn't use postits? I go through stacks of them. The artwork is a photo of a sculpture by one of my favorite artists. The name of it translates to "protection" or something like that. It shows, doesn't it?
Here is the bulk of the items (to save on bandwidth). The needlebook and pincushion are soooo cute I love them both. Those lovely pins came tucked safely inside the book. There is also a lovely journal with a reverse applique of a Waterhouse painting (Does my partner know about my sketchbook/notebook fetish? I *love* journals!). And those pretty sparkles are Swarovski crystals on a lovely clip with a maiden in the moon...we both sent something with a charm of a lady in the moon to each other :
And without further ado, here is this amazing embroidery piece depicting my favorite tale, well poem actually. I've always loved the Pied Piper of Hamelin. The rats, the music notes, the words, even the red and yellow scarf/pants and the cute little bird on his hat...it's so detailed, I am just awed by it! The stitches are so neat and precise. I really, really love this and it's already on the wall above my computer.
Thank you thank you thank you! Spookshowbaby77... You've really made my first swap awesome
So I attacked one of the kindereggs right away, and guess what was inside? A cute little artist/painter toy, how appropriate!!
