So here is the huge and awesome package from monkey girl that I already received on Wednesday.
She wrapped every piece individually in some shiny silver/gold paper, tied it up with some nice green ribbon and added a tag to every piece. Unfortunately I was too excited to unwrap anything and could not wait till bf showed up with the camera, so no photos of the wrapped goodies.
Let's start with the nice wine charms. Witches and Devils. I do not drink wine but I think I can repurpose them as stitch markers and to do some creepy knitting..
then there were this wounderfull note cards. I think they are made from some kind of trading card because the line under each of the images says: Bloodsuckers and other Monsters. The remind me a bit of Christmas cards because of the metallic and maybe I am going to use the next Xmas for my atheistical friends., If I am able to let them go. They are really, really cool!
next come some cute little dolls. They kind of look like if they attacked each other. My cat is scared of them so I hang them at the wall where she likes to sharpen her claws. But she found another place. Sigh!
followed by this art work picture. The colours fit my kitchen colour concept!
now this mysterious item. A book. But what kind of book?
It is a jewelry case filled with little preciosities guarded by a big spider
Here is the content:
A beautiful necklace with tiny stars (I love stars)and a spider ring that won't fit any of my stubby fingers but I think I will turn it into a brooch
Some neat barrettes that I already wore several times and with pride and a great brooch that went directly on my bag
and last but not least fantastic earrings, axes, skull with a rose in the mouth and bones with bows
but that was not all.
She also sent me a heap of extras: Helloween plastic pipes, some more of the skull with roses in the mouth pendants, cute vampire stickers and this rad fabric with silver foil bats on it
Finally here is a group shot of everything. I hope I did not forget anything
OK I am running out of positive adjectives I know. I loved it. As far as I can see she dismembered a glow-inthe-dark skeleton but there are some parts missing. Where is the rib cage? And what happend to the lower limbs? And the skull? And where did the hands from the picture and the jewelry case came from? Scary!
I hope you guys are not to jealous and I am looking forward to a personal swap to exchange Korean goodies and German chocolate!
Thank you monkey girl!
