1  Re: Traveling Little Visitor Swap Round 23 Gallery! in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by PerfectlyBohemian on: October 18, 2016 05:33:50 PM
Felicity made it back home this weekend while I was out of town! She brought a huuuuge load of goodies back with her. Waterbaby really spoiled her during her stay.

Some of my favorite things include Felicity's new hat collection!! First up is this adorable sun hat that waterbaby made:

Then a fantastic sombrero that is just right for Felicity's little noggin:

Waterbaby also made us a wonderful set of scrappy quilted coasters inspired by my Pinterest:

And this very sweet mushroom pincushion with a very special ladybug pin hidden among the butterflies:

Felicity also helped paint this lovely little ceramic bowl and scavenged treasures from the beach during her stay:

I can't wait to sit down with Felicity and read through her trip album. There's lots of great descriptions and details. Here's a couple random pages for an idea. I haven't gotten a chance to decide on favorites because there are soooo many pages Cheesy:

Felicity brought tons of other stuff home too which can be seen in the first couple pictures. Hopefully I don't miss anything, but here we are:
- Reusable totes/bags from gardens and communities she visited
- A Magic Cube from the Disney concert hall!
- Magnets from Hollywood and San Diego
- a "Felicity" CA tag keychain that will live on her travel bag now with some of her other travel memorabilia
- lots and lots of vintage lace
- pens from her travels
- tons of brochures, programs, tickets, and other papery items from the things she did with waterbaby
- two HUGE boxes of fudge (yum yum yum!!) <3
- and a Mexican paper banner/bunting string

I received a really lovely package from Cackle this week! She and I agreed to make items that complimented other items we had already made each other, so she made a painting of a little fashion assistant for the mermaid she previously painted me!

And here she is with my mermaid painting from Cackle when we did the Make-a-Friend swap - she usually hangs in my master bathroom, but I was getting horrible glares in the photos, so she temporarily wast taken down:

I was spoiled and received some extra items too! This super neat flower that happens to be all my favorite colors. It's quite sizable and has lots of interesting details.

And lastly, a dainty little pendant with a fish which I wound up putting on a blue ball and chain to wear today with my ocean wave leggings Smiley

Alby joined me for a friend's wedding rehearsal on Saturday at the Duke Chapel (at Duke University) in Durham, NC. I was absolutely blown away by the historic look of the buildings and the chapel on this part of the campus. I felt like I was in Europe for a moment. There aren't many buildings like this that I have seen in the US.

And I know Alby isn't actually in this photo, but we had to just look up and be amazed by all the architecture and amazing structural pieces and stain glass in this cathedral. It was so gorgeous!

I received an absolutely gorgeous journal from Onyxnox this week! It features a little bit of everything from my themes and it is all so well put together and has so many awesome little details. And there are so many pages! And lots of tags, and charms, and lace! I tried to narrow down my favorites, but that's like half the book. So here we go Cheesy

There's this one page that is actually a Basmati rice bag with the snap still intact acting like an envelope!

And there's an awesome quote at the end <3

Lots of the pages have this very dimensional layering and pages sewn together:

And look! Pressed flowers <3 <3 <3

Ha! A bank, waterbaby? I am kicking myself for not going back into a building last week that I met a client at. I didn't want to pull Alby out to take pictures on the roof or while walking out with a bunch of clients because the group of old men were already not taking me very seriously as a young, female engineer with half of my hair dyed purple and blue. The building we were at is also an old bank with the old vault turned into a vending machine room Tongue

I did get lots of pictures with Alby in Wilmington and on Carolina Beach though! Here's also some pictures from prior weeks that I hadn't gotten around to sharing.

First, we went to Downtown Raleigh a few weeks ago (to play Pokemon Go  Tongue), so I got to show Alby the capitol building, the iconic acorn sculpture, and the cool tree on the conference center. (the last one was a drive-by photo  Roll Eyes)

In Wilmington, we visited the Battleship North Carolina. I have sooo many photos of Alby in the ship, and it was late in the day, so there were no people getting in our way. Although I did feel like I was getting lost on the ship because it was so huge! There were also lots of neat (and scary) things in there.

The hallways were all very narrow (bleh)

We visited a Post Office, too! (on the ship):

I don't think most ships have wishing wells....

Alby and I dropped a few coins in to appease any would-be goblins or trolls that might be on board though:

Also while in Wilmington, we ate dinner on the river.

The condo we rented had a lovely beachfront view! Alby did lots of relaxing while I worked from the condo on Monday and Tuesday.

Lots more photos of our trip are on Alby's photo album here: https://goo.gl/photos/fmHJh8wwt9kT9wvQA Smiley

Alby "supervised" today at a wall build for Habitat for Humanity we did today. We built all the walls for an entire house in 2.5 hours Cheesy

Here are some photos from Alby and me at the Yates Mill Pond a couple weekends ago. They still do tours of the mill, but the friend we were with had to leave before the tour started, so we missed it. We got to see the mill and pond, then walked the trail behind the pond.

Here's the creek that runs away from the dam, and the bridge for the road over it:

And the mill:

The confetti someone left all over the rocks behind the dam:

And the pond!

I forgot to take pictures on the trail  Lips sealed

Also, Alex, I am playing Pokemon Go Smiley I will have to remember to take Alby on my next walk to go hunting for some. There's several "PokeStops" near my office we can check out since most of them are supposed to be culturally or artistically significant - although a ton are in the cemetery which seems a little odd and semi-disrespectful...

I received a lovely purple coneflower badge from LeapFeetFirst today Smiley I'm really impressed by the 3D-ness of the embroidered elements. It's so pretty! Cheesy

Oh my goodness, that mouse is too stinkin' cute.

Petskin also made me a lovely, needle-felted badge. This one is a macaron! I'm guessing pistachio flavored. Yum Cheesy

Look at all those little seed beads! Sprinkles are the best - but hand sewn ones are crazy awesome Wink
