At long last, the tardy Gothmom posts pics.
Before I do, I just wanted to say that this is probably my last swap. I've been doing this for years, dozens of swaps and some have been good and some have been real disappointments (not this one, don't worry Random you're great) I've been flaked on and I have angel'ed and I have even moderated a swap once. But the pressure of the review you get at the end and the angst it causes makes the scales tip in favor of not doing it anymore.
Okay -so off the soapbox and on to the pics.
My camera must have had a hangover the day I took these pics...
First off - Ransom is a great swapper - she PAYS ATTENTION to what you say you like/dislike and really crafted just for me. That was really super and great and rarer than you'd think.
First off - all the pieces were individually wrapped and inside a really nice archive box. It was more presents than I've gotten for my birthday for the last few years I'll tell you that much!

And then I ripped those beautiful things open...and this is what I found.

These were great items, well made, thoughtful, packaged like super great and Ransom was really kind and patient with me sending her stuff late.
