Everybody's stuff is so great!!  I received from in hope but my stupid camera broke  Angry  I'll get pics up as soon as I can replace it.  She sent the most adorable purse with boomerangs and widgets, a cool zipperd sparkly pouch and a retro lady belt buckle!!

I am so totally lame!  Sorry its taken so much time to post photos, I'm mad busy at my day-job!   Tongue

Here are the goods I received from Multitool...

a travel log for my upcoming trip to France - he put images of 'life in France' in the 50's on a transparency over wonderful graph paper (how did you know?!) & included an envelope in the back for ephemera. there's a great image of la tour eiffel.  and i will really use it!







a whole gaggle of magnets with all my favorite Eichler houses & fiberglass chairs by Charles & Ray Eames, etc. etc.  I have that George Nelson clock in my office, btw. funny!



and an analog clock, a mid-century-must-have, in the shape of a satelite which i think looks rather fetching on my parsons table at the moment...  Wink



thanks again Multitool, you're a peach!

My partner hasnt posted pictures of the swap items I sent her a while back so Im going to go ahead and post the ones I took before mailing so everyone can see. I hope she likes what I sent her. She has not mailed my package yet- but I promise I will post pictures as soon as I receive something. Grin

Just passing through...I'm not in this swap, but I thought your lovely items looked 50's style to me, Elphaba! 

In other words, they look to be the right style for the swap, I'd say!   Grin

Cheerio!  Kiss

I've finally stopped slackin' and i'm posting pics of the cute stuff lalamarco sent me. she knew that audrey hepburn was my favorite actress, and everything was right on spot!



this little notebook is perfect - not only is it adorable, its the perfect size to carry around. its the sort of thing i would have purchased for myself, so it was awesome to get it in a swap! (i know the pic is quite large but you have to see the detail of it to really appreciate it)


handmade stationery! and address labels!


cute audrey hepburn pins and a domino pouch...

lalamarco, i love it all!
