I have been royally spoiled by canamharris!!! Her goodies from abroad arrived in a most timely manner~ I am delighted with everything & need to take a few more photos in the morning, but wanted to share the glory of what I do have photographed with y'all this evening. Bear with me as I'm running on little sleep & it's already past my bedtime!
First, the thoughtfully wrapped surprises:
A crown as modelled by one of my minions...who is likely to run off with it even though it does fit my most magestic brow:
Crown detail... sparkly felt!!!
A crown for 'the royal bunny' (I will take photos of it on her in the morning. I do most of my bunny photoshoots after breakfast when we're both bright eyed & bushy tailed):
An official document...I do approve!!! This is going in my craft room to remind me of my importance!:
EDIT...Here is what it says: "Dear Your Royal Highness Queen June of Glitter & Sparkles, Your awesomeness & importance Have recently become known to the Order of the Thimble & Time Bending Stitchery. We wanted to honor you & your amazing craft with these gifts. We hope that they are to your liking and meet your glittery needs. Thank you for being you. Sincerely, Lady Danielle Lady of the Most Ancient & Most Noble Order of the Thimble & Time Bending Stitchery"
It's so awesome!
Sketchbooks for just in case we end up on a deserted island...because the royal hands cannot be without a creative project to dabble in.
Fabric cover detail...so lovely!
Sketchbooks for the minions:
Needle books for the royal needles!
Foodstuffs from abroad! I LOVE Canadian candy & the minions claimed the kinder surprise eggs...which I approved so long as they pay tribute to my generosity later: http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=517529&ppuser=134843
My hands down most favorite thing which couldn't have been made by less noble fingers than canamharris's! SHe is the Lady of the Most Ancient and Most Noble Order of the Thimble and Time-Bending Stitchery after all!
The fabric makes me swoon & the embroidery is one of the most favorite things anybody has ever embroidered for me! I must dash out tomorrow & find a pillow form to fit it! I will rephotograph it when it's stuffed as my efforts are not doing it justice at this time:
I need to photograph yet another treasure!!! My 2nd most favorite part of the package! I'll keep you in suspense until tomorrow because it deserves really good morning light! There's a unicorn & glitter involved! hint*hint
I had run out of time in between the package arriving & then taking my boy to his scout meeting to get it all in this afternoon... so don't think I don't love it! Let's say we're saving the best for last!
Dearest Danielle, Lady of the Most Ancient and Most Noble Order of the Thimble and Time-Bending Stitchery ...you have indeed pleased me & my minions! Thank you so very much!!!
