Here's the package I received from the_canadian_lynx today. I love her sense of humour!
First, there's a set of small but lovely magnets with tiny Sherlockian quotes (and two silhouettes as bookends).
Next, a key fob with a double-sided miniature image of the Holmes brothers (Sherlock is on the other side) and a tiny violin. It's too fragile to attach to my overly-macho bunch of keys, but I think I can find an appropriate place to show it off.
A very funny double-sided canvas bag with the newspaper headlines from the Jeremy Brett TV version of "The Second Stain" (and Holmes's comments): MURDER IN WESTMINSTER. CRIME OF A MYSTERIOUS NATURE. VALET OUT FOR THE EVENING. "They always are." HOUSEKEEPER HEARD NOTHING. "They never do." And with it, a knitted bookmark that's a miniature of Martin Freeman's scarf from Sherlock. Could there be anything else more wonderfully nerdy than these?
And finally, in spite of all that, this note is my favourite thing in the package. It's printed so extremely small that it's unreadable without a magnifying glass! (Fortunately being a student of the great sleuth, I happened to have one handy.) What makes this doubly delicious is that in return I sent her a magnifying glass!
Thanks for these, and congratulations on finishing your first swap in record time!
