you might wanna grab a cup of coffee before you look at these pics. theres alot of em. i didnt get a pic of the parcel box or all the items together, theres to many and i was too eager!)
so these is what set of this swap between me and nicole(i put the nun in the jar to make into a pendant. i wanted the nun because one of my last names is "nunn" )
so i asked nicole for a whimsy jar with the nuns and chickens and anything else little inside. MY FIRST WHIMSY JAR!(not as nicole packed it i was too eager
all the animals inside. frogs, whales, elephants, penguins, nemos and an army of piggies i plan to make into a charm bracelet(my uncle keeps pigs as pets )
other stuff from inside. beads, a magnet bee, bracelets and felt cupcakes(?)
close up of the charm on the brown bracelet. its a coffee pot and cup
but wait theres more...
stickers, 2 cat toys (one with something crackly inside that my younger one has now run off with ) and this cool bowling pin maracca/shaker. plus a cool owl patch!
2 purses handmade by craftsters from nicoles previous swaps. ones sewn and the black is some crochet/knitted wool style with all these cool bumpson it. the coloured one had corks and tiny jars(which my dad said reminded him of when he was little and he wanted a set of jars like them his parents couldnt afford because the 'rage' at the time was to have a set of jars and put things like stones, and rocks and small insects inside and compare your 'specimens' with your mates)
the other had buttons,beads, other random crafty circle things, my first stitch holders, things what appear to be old bubble blowers, a tiny book, a star clip, patches, another pillcase.
bits and pieces floating in the box. some wierd but cool paper/felt sheet things with police on them, a gecko stamper,a moose! army guys(i never got to play with a set when i was little because i was a 'girl'. i love these! lol. domino, and reptiles and ampibians and scorpian and a glasses badge. also a cat and this super cool metal pillbox!
random things i forgot to put in other photos. cool fabric that was wrapped around the two purses,that domino again, a handmade fishbead and a' tash badge! COOL!(look at the little ghost above the domino. hes saying "woooooo! so many whimsys!"
a buttload of candy to keep me going, all from my favourite place to look at nostalgic candy online(i didnt even tell elocinicole it was my favourite place for this type of candy. salt water taffy, buttons(?) candy cigerettes,jolly ranchers, sour gum and lemon, grape, orange etc heads and wax vampire lips
