I got my package from Gishygoo today!!   OMG!!  I LOVE IT ALL!!   I got a purple and lavender purse with the letter "K" made of buttons (the length is perfect!), spider web coasters (that are HAND EMBROIDERED!!!), a little journal covered with fabric and beaded accents (it's a wine bottle cover!!) and a stuffie (chocolate - my fave!!)

As promised earlier, here are photos of the items I got from charliebrown:



A fabric envelope, a bead necklace and earrings. I wore the jewellery to work yesterday, and was complimented on the earrings. I love the way that they matched my Bonds black tee.



A bag! Oh god do I LURVE bags. It's made out of teatowels, I think, and there's some beautiful, beautiful embroidery on the front - a gorgeous floral design.


An item from my wists! OMG It's the chinese noodle box bag! I have visions of myself prancing around Melbourne wearing my pink dress, and carrying this. Can't wait.

charliebrown also included salt and pepper shakers that she was perfecting her glass etching techniques upon. They weren't photographing too well against the white though.

Thank you again! This has been great.

Wow!  That stripey bag is fantastic!  Good ol' charliebrown made the dollar store look classy!

Eeek!  Now I really want to see them, you tease!  You know, the etching should show up if you stuff the shakers with dark fabric or something similar... just hoping to take a look...   Kiss

Thanks for all the compliments guys. The striped bag is made from place mats that I cut apart.

And here are the pictures of what Kitten Wrangler sent me:



She did a great bamboo purse, a very nice satiny bag that will be good for my next trip to New York and the fancy dinner I have to go to. Than there is a fun braclet, an Australia beanie, stickers and an elephant jar.

Here is a close up of the elephants she caught in the jar!! LOL. I love elephants!!



It is all wonderful.

I love the take-out box purse!  What did it start life out as?
