Okay, so photobucket crapped out on me so I only could get three of my pictures I took loaded up but I am too excited so I am sharing what I got up so far. I will post the other pictures as soon as I can.
So here she is! Lucy is back home and with an AWESOME new Arsenal (my favorite soccer team) scarf and an AWESOME new little friend!! His name is Chas Oiseau and has already found himself at home (just as long as we keep him out of reach from our kitty cat!)
And here is an overview of most of the goodies that Lucy came with. I am just floored by gizmonics generosity and fabulous sense of humor. Not pictured are tons of great newspapers, booklets, maps, and magazines that Lucy picked up from her travels (including a crochet today magazine with super cute projects!). Also not pictured is the awesome scrap book (dang that photobucket! Hopefully I can get those pic loaded later today!).
Top row: There is a embroidered "postcard", super cute kitty bookmarks, and a lovely bunny button as a part of random act of kindness project of gizmonic's. Next row down: Giz sent some books about Ohio and her hometown of Brunswick. The best is this book on Ohio oddities (did you know Ohio is home to a famed pumpkin carver and the Accounting Hall of Fame?). Also a calender featuring pictures from Cleveland (which is a lot cooler looking than I could ever imagine). Next row: Amazingly cute plate and utensil set from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for my daughter Ame, some lovely organic yarn, Boston Tea Party Tea, Pocky (yes!), and some super yummy peanut butter and chocolate candies (which I ate two of at 8:15 in the morning.) Then in the front: All the items were packing with loving care inside fabric squares that will be excellent for making some small purses. Also there was a Sheffield United banner (another EPL soccer team), a beautiful small flower vase, more Boston Tea (I heart tea), some Guinness bread mix (yummm!!), a super hilarious cross-stitch pattern, and two beautifully knitted washclothes just for Ame!
I cannot even begin to describe how awesome gizmonic's pictures are, it looks like Lucy had an amazing time. This one might be my favorite:http://www.flickr.com/photos/gizmonic/1331651942/in/set-72157601752785934/
And here I got the kitty checking things out.
"I can haz Pocky?"
Hopefully I can post the rest of the pictures soon!
Now I am just getting major swap anxiety. I mean how can anyone top that?!?!
