I just came back from the post office and opened my package (with kitty help, how else)! I love it all so much! I am in love with this swap, because not only was I matched up with another really nice Spaniard (Fosca), but I have been so inspired by her so much and have received a whole bunch of greatness and loveliness!
here we go...
yeah, in that picture the poor felt owlie is being guarded by the sturdy fimo one and the big plushie one, because Fosca suggested on her letter I should use the felt owlie as a pincushion... how could I ever stab that little cutie?
all of them have already found a place on my shelf among my other plushies and little animals
now the cutest crocheted mommy & baby owl:
the mommy has those BIG eyes that yell CUTE whenever you look at her, and the baby is all fluffy and can be taken off the nest. I love them, and have found a place for them out of my kitties' reach (you know, a fluffy baby owlie can tempt the most serious of cats...)
I don't know how this is called in english, but it's beautiful. it's this clear crystal ball filled with water and tiny sparkly stuff that rains over the two owl figures when you shake it. the figures are a delight to look at. I don't really know if she handmade this or not (she didn't specify on her letter), but if she did... I have no words, it's beautiful. I love it so much!
mommy, fluffy baby & ball have also a place on my shelf
and last, but not least, my favourite of all... this handmade blank book
sorry for the crappy pictures, but I work during daylight and my house has this terrible lightning... the motives on the cover are lovely and I love the way it closes. it has a TON of blank pages and is currently sitting next to my bed because I always have blank books there to write at night. the book came with a pencil, and the fimo owlie is supposed to sit on the pencil... but I think it fits better on my shelf with his other animal friends
and a group shot to end with!
Fosca, I can't thank you enough for a lovely package! everything is so well crafted and beautiful! I love it TONS (can't stop looking at the owlies in the ball, which is next to my computer desk) and I can only hope you will like my package as much!
