I got my package from fatewineroses today and I'm still reeling from all the goodies. She is the best swap partner and I'm so lucky to have gotten her this round.
The package was quite an emotional journey. First she brought the laughs with this from Monty Python and the Holy Grail:
Without any prompting she managed to hit one of my favorite quotes from the movie. That whole scene with the French knights never fails to make me laugh, just like I did when I saw that plaque.
Then I discovered this from Young Frankenstein:
I don't know how many times I've seen Young Frankenstein - a bunch. My favorite scenes are between Victor and Igor. I'm so blown away by this I can't even express it. I just sat and stared when I opened it. Talk about tiny stitching! And a portrait! I can't even imagine how something like this is done.
Then I opened this from Aladdin:
And the lining:
How did she know yellow is my favorite color? And once again the quote is perfect. She's either the world's best stalker or she's psychic. I swear I teared up when I saw this because of Robin Williams. The lining is a tribute to his beautiful soul.
Then there was this from Lord of the Rings:
The Eye of Sauron! Old Lord of the Rings himself! lol
You think that's the best thing about it, the evil reptilian eye? No, not at all. It also... lights up! Yes, that's right, my very own, glowing Eye of Sauron. I couldn't get a picture of it lit up, it washed out to much. Suffice it to say it's bloody awesome!
And did I mention the candy? There was candy too, was being the operative word.
Fatewineroses, you're the best. Thanks so much!
