got two from bunny1kenobi. Both are just awesome!

first is pub sign (I requested odd ones)

I love love love the shape of the card!  And the name is awesome and the image rocks. So happy to have this in my pub sign collection!

Next, for moveable, is called View from my Window, will show pretty back first...

On the front is a window complete with curtains!

Slide the inner art to one side and you go from night to day

Oh, seriously clever and wonderful!  I am thinking (hoping) that is a wee ghostie peering in at night.
thank you, bunny1, they both really rock!

They came in a totally open and mangled envie but you had sealed the inner greeting card well and it all survived!!

loca4crafts chose my anything Scottish theme...

Balmoral Castle in Aberdeen (the town in which I purchased my ball gown, did not get to the castle as I recall)
hosts the ghost of John Brown, pictured above.

Card opens on a bottom hinge and this ancient looking fact page is inside.

So cleverly done, with the suggestion frame of a castle and John in his awesome dressings within.

Card makes me swoon and wish to be in the Auld Country again.

thank you, loca4crafts. It is a wonderful piece for my collection!!

grufflepuff came up with a very clever card for my classical music theme.  I have even heard of this particular piece!  It represents the Cat Fugue by Domenico Scarlotti.

Legend has it that Scarlatti had a pet cat called Pulcinella, who was described by the composer as prone to walking across the keyboard, always curious about its sounds.

On one occasion, according to the story, Scarlatti wrote down a phrase from one of these "improvisation sessions", and used it as a lead motif in a fugue.

The fact that the kitty is walking on the precious piano is also in tune (no pun intended!!) with my other requested ATC theme, misbehaving kitten.

thank you, grufflepuff, I love this one!!

Have you looked around for another tag inside that may have a style name/number?

got these well-used. Brand name shows up fine, all other info is too faded. I looked thru all pants by that brand name in all areas of internet to no avail.

MunLtStmpr chose my filigree theme and made this stunning card!

This elegant gate opens to reveal none other than the Winchester Mansion in California with its 40 (!) bedrooms.

The construction and crafting of this piece is incredible.
Up close, the gate....

I have no idea what was used as paint on this plastic backing but it came out so well. Delicate, perfect, lovely!
CAn't wait to hear the details on making it.
thank you so much, Mun!

I have owned these wonderful capris for a few years now. There is no way I will ever be this size again! I have been trying for about a year now to find a larger used pair, this brand or other. but every time I put "lace ups" in the search title it throws off the search and I get lacy stuff or worse.  I have tried brand name, capris, sailor pants, and more.

I sure hope some of ya'll can come forward with a proper name for these pants so i can find a new used pair!

thank you so much.

your favorite Calvin and Hobbes scene
combo of white, turquoise, and schoolbus yellow
