Wow. I love those cat plates!!! Totally awesome!
I have received from rjannelle
!!! She sent me the most awesome package! It came at just the right time, because the day was just..one of those days. Getting a package like this made it turn pretty epic.
The box was stuffed pretty much from top to bottom when I opened it. There was a card on top that mentioned spoilers, so I set it aside. Then I saw this mug rug.
And on the other side...
I'm not sure how she did the text; but it's pretty darn awesome. My bf likes it enough that it might get relegated to a hot pad at home vice taking it to work. But first I need to hide it while my mother is visiting this weekend.
Then I pulled this out. It took me a bit to get it open; and unfortunately it broke in transit...
I must have pinned a thousand little pincushions of little houses on hills. I never, ever would have thought to put the Burrow on the hill. Robyn, if you have better pictures of this, please post them. It is such a fantastic piece, my single picture here does not do it justice AT ALL.
After I sat and stared at my new pincushion, (you know I wasn't even crazy upset that the cup broke. I can totally get another cup.), I pulled out what I thought was the last item. This quote, if you didn't know, is Dumbledore speaking to Harry in the Half-Blood Prince. Which is my favorite book.
Then I read my card...which had me scrambling for the box and the papers. Robyn had wrapped this little girl in paper and put her in the cup. I totally missed her! She's perfect. If I were a wizard, (the jury is still out), She would be my patronus. I lifted her up and let her slightly twirl in the air when I found her, and she made me smile.
Again Robyn, if you have a better picture of her, please post. I just couldn't seem to get a good picture of her.
Many many thanks to Robyn. I know that these pieces are some of those I have received in other swaps, like my Eeyor needlebook. They will be well used and worn over many years to come.
And more thanks out to Jennie. For hosting all of us crazy kids in the middle of the HP Summer Semester.
