I'm sorry it's taken me *so* long to post pictures. It turns out that it never actually stopped raining, so I gave up.
Also, not everything is pictured, because ruby_soho made the terrible mistake of sending candy and as soon as my friends saw that I had some, I was beaten to within an inch of my life and when I awoke, it was gone. :-P
She put *so much* detail into everything she sent me, even down to the outside of the package!
When I opened it up, she had wrapped around the actual box a SUPER COOL PIRATEY T-SHIRT that I hid in my bag because I wanted to keep it.
She sent me this pirate missive, explaining the treasure:
And a map (in case I get lost!):
This is the actual box she sent. I'm completely and totally in love with it. It looks exactly like a treasure chest:
Inside, there were accessories to complete my piratey ensemble, an eyepatch, a bandana, tattoos, and TONS of treasure:
And an awesome appliqued flag:
And finally, she sent me this little fellow:
My friends got their hands on it, but she also sent Ring Pops (stolen) and Fun Dip (mostly stolen) and orange slices to prevent scurvy (definitely stolen). This is what comes of going to lunch with candy and piratey swag in hand. Oh well. :-(
Thank you so much, ruby_soho! I absolutely loved it, and I can't wait to go on a piratey adventure across the seven seas (aka the puddles outside!).
