Finally I am able to post photos from the incredible jar that Littlebiskit sent. I can't tell you how long it took to set everthing up for a photo op! There were so many tiny animals (that I plan to imbed in resin) that I gave up setting them up and just put a representation!
Check these out for some I-Spy!
A shot of the whole jar's contents!
Vintage jewelry for me to craft with, tiny statues, mini erasers, an adorable shrink plastic quail....
(BTW, I think I had those crazy black, beaded, dangly earings in the 80's)
A representation of terrific teany tiny animals (which apparently were meant for the dinosaur that she sent for my son to eat but I may keep them myself. Besides, the dinosaur is busy fighting aliens right now). Cute gingham brads!
I love Hello Kitty and other japanese pop cute characters. I now have a wallet (which is waterproof and will go with me to the beach); paper, stickers, and more. And lots of other cute whimsies!
More Hello Kitty, paper, flower crafting supplies, lots of foreign money from several different coutries which is so cool. Sport beans to motivate me to run (which is on my mind after being at a lake this weekend with my very fit and thin friends and feelin' flabby!)
Also included were some cool Minnesota souvenirs. Postcards and buttons from the Halloween Capitol of the world (note to Littlebiskit: My younger son is very obsessed with Halloween!) and a loon thimble.
So many other cool things that I know I didn't mention. Many thanks to my awesome swap partner!! and to Homerof2 for organizing!!!
