Yes, aprons are great!  Your magnets are done very well, I particularly like the detail on the dishsoap.

My camera cable is still MIA, so if you want to post pictures of the stuff you got, bbonnn, you can.  Otherwise folks'll have to wait.   Tongue

I'm hoping you got it.  usps.com says the package was delivered.

Yay! I received a box of goodies from h_pets360 this week! I love the look of her crafts - I'm a peripheral admirer of the cow-punk-rockabilly-vintage scene (but not a participant, as it involves, you know, effort), and as you see below, that aesthetic prevails beautifully.

We'll start with the nortty wrapping paper, which I totally love! There are different scenes like this. She said it was from the BUST boobtique. (I think this is PG enough to post. If not, mods, feel free to remove it)



We progress to the postcard with a very nice note on the back:


The first bigger item: a calendar with 12 months of twisted cross-stitch sayings. I love it! I may just have to take up cross stitch and do a few of these. Some of the past months' pictures are going on the walls of my cube (my favorite: an intricately decorated "whatever"). See more at http://www.subversivecrossstitch.com/ (warning: some images and sayings NSFW)


When my hair is misbehaving, or when I'm doing an emergency cleaning session before company comes over, I can scrub my floors in style with this cute hula girl bandanna


Check out this hand-painted and decoupaged journal with a horseshoe on the front. Now when I go to spend six weeks at the divorce ranch in Reno, I can be the envy of all the other gals when I whip this out to record my thoughts:

(that's a reference to George Cukor's "The Women" from 1939 - if you've never seen it, RENT IT NOW. Rosalind Russell, Joan Fontaine, the perennially haggard Marjorie Main, Joan Crawford in her evil-doe stage ... and the dialogue is sharp, mature, and biting)


And finally, le creme, an embroidered pillow concerning three of my favorite themes: citrus, mixed drinks, and making stuff out of whatever you have lying around. After a night of making do with supplies on-hand, I shall rest my weary hung-over head upon this dark gossamer cloud and reflect upon the good times had.


Thank you so much! I love everything! Smiley Smiley Smiley

Everyone is getting such cool items! I can't decide which ones I like the best (I can safely say that since I haven't received my package yet, which I'm sure I will LOVE!!).

I love all of the pin-up girl items, and the "cosmo" pillow, and...well...everything!

I've got Muria's package - too great!

Of course, you've heard all about the list of quotes.  My favorite thus far,
"A clean house is a sign of a broken computer!"
Definitely true in my case  Cheesy  I'm going to take this list on a roadtrip we have planned in a few weeks along with some whatever it is I need for needlepoint and make myself up some samplers.

And, also, curtains for the bathroom!

we so needed these, thank you thank you! 

Close up of cat hair masking fabric:


And
Knitted dish clothes!

These are so darling, I love them both (the solid colour one has a maple leaf in it that doesn't show up in my photo, sorry) I'm going to frame them to hang in the kitchen. 
(you didn't think I'd do dishes with them, did you?  You don't think I actually do dishes, do you?)

Thanks again Muria, I love it all!

ps, my husband is going through the quotes list and he keeps laughing every few seconds, and occasionally shaking the papers at me saying, "haha, this is so you!"
hmmmm.  I just refered him to the "Real men do housework" quote.
hahahaha back at cha, buddy!
