I received a wonderful swap parcel today. Check out these goodies!!And sorry I didnt flip these pictures, my computer is spazzing at the moment
Cutest little notw and envelope, alice in wonderland themed. <3 it!
Two hair clips. A bow and a rose. I love how different they are, but are still so 50's.
A cute little cross-stitch cherry box. it's adorable
Notes on Howlovely's favorite things from the 50's, plus some awesome birthday cards that I don't think I can part with
Close-up of the birthday cards. They are brighter in real life
A set of four coasters. These are so cool! They have a heap of things from the 50's, like "A is for Apron" and so on.
close-up of one of the coasters
Cutest little bag. It should go perfectly with a dress I plan to buy in august. It matches the hairbow and also a hankerchief(which I was unable to get a photo of, but will probably be used as a head scarf thingy)
AND THE BEST TILL LAST!! A freaking davy crockett hat. It was meant to be for my dad, but now we are totally going to fight over who gets it! It's awesome!!
after alot of fuss and bother, my original parcel from slingmomma has arrived. It seems aa through it was held at customs, 2 post offices and delivered to the wrong address, but im the end it has reached me, and i love it!
here is everything all together (sorry for the fuzziness). There is lollies (yummo!!), convertible mittens, adorable magnets and lemmings!)
ready and awaiting orders, SIR!! my own rainbow lemming army (sort of.... lol)
convertible tentacle mittens made just for me, and in jokery colours too, YAY!!
been on a bit of a downer. burnt my arm at bakery class on friday, and its giving me a (not so) wonderful time with the pain and the goo and so on (not that you want to hear about that lol), but i am feeling better because of my wonderful parcel from dinkime, who sent 2 parcels of supplies for me to use..... (bet you want to hear about that more lol)
in my questionairre, i asked if i could be send anything vintagey, steampunk, unique or just interesting to look at to use in atc and other small gifts for friends this year.... i got just that, seriously, I LOVE IT ALL!!!!! lol(its gonna be hard to give up when i make the items for my friends lol)
the two parcels. I love the card on the left, that made me giggle
first parcel. this one contained awesome vintagey type stuff, and some much needed jewellery items (i totally needed clasps unexpectedly this week, you rock dinkime!). labels, old calender(november, my month! hehe) , papers a book page in another language.....and the fabric the items are on
i love these papers, one has adorable vintage photos which is perfect for inchies i have been planning on!!
and then there was even more awesomeness!!!!
more fabrics and ribbons, cutest little vintage type writer toothpicks, stamp set, steampunk items, and more vintagey labels and things.
and the container of steampunk findings, keys, little plates for name bracelets, watch and cog findings, flowers....
seriously, this is an awesome supply parcel, i love it all. THANK YOU DINKIME!!! (your parcel is in progress and will be completed in the holidays, which start in a week lol!)
and here is even more awesomeness, in the form of my parcel from "poppet princess lankins".
the parcel came all wrapped in pretty paper....with the cats wanting it for themselves lol
... with a cool looking card explaining that one of the items i inquired about (a shaun plush from shaun of dead) didnt make it because of two naughty little guys who gave lanikins some grief during crafting.
the two guys in question are.....
YES! EDWARD SCISSORHANDS and FREDDY KRUEGER!!! look at them. EEEKK!!! seriously, I squealed when i saw these lol. ed is for a friend (if i can give him up lol) and fred is for me! See Ed's little scars? and the adorable faces and clothes.
then out popped three minikins. I call them yeti-kin, kidney-kin and pillow-kin, cos thats what they remind me of lol!
and then this little guy poked his head out to say hello.....
... its THRILLER JACKSON, In zombie pose! he is really teeny, just the right size to go on a keyring(maybe i will put him on one, so people can see his awesomeness, but then again, i dont want to loose him )
old grumpy kitty grudgingly let me take a photo of her and pillow-kin (she likes sniffing this one, dont know why) lol
crazy younger kitty wanted to become friends with kidney-kin.
then Ed saw this and wanted to be friends with crazy younger kitty. at first she was scared of his hands, but soon decided he was safe for a hug
ed and yeti-kins are firm friends. If i do let Ed go, i think yeti-kin will want to go too. (yeti-kin is the only one the cats werent interested in. strange...)
then we headed outside into the pocket sized yard for lunch.pillow-kin posed artfully in the grass...
While Ed wondered if he could cut ferns into shapes (sorry Ed, no trees in our little yard)
And Freddy took to looking next door with younger crazy kitty. He said he was watching for next doors cat, but i think he was looking to see if there were any kids he could scare (bad luck freddy, there arent any kids near where I live, and I am not taking you baby sitting. lol)
lani said fred was a bit fussy and couldnt agree on the look of the hat or shoes she tried to make (bad freddy, lani always makes awesome stuff ) so she sent him without. (thats ok lani, he is more perfect then i could of imagined. hes the bestest first poppet someone could get)
and here is a pic of fred with me as a comparison. (i was watching a movie when the postie came, and fred watched the end of it with me before i got online to post pics. this was a sneaky shot taken of me while i wasnt looking. i look kinda odd, but it shows freddy's (and ed's) size. seriously, these guys must of taken forever! teeny poppets lol.
