Gallstones & Kurisu, I'm pretty sure you guys have sent by now - you've both been brilliant about keeping me up to date with your postage situations - are you able to confirm for me ASAP?

And now... we wait for parcels to arrive!!!

Mine is packaged and will be mailed Tuesday. I forgot that Monday is a holiday in the US-thus the post offices are closed. I have PM'd my partner with an update.

Also, I have received from scottskipper--yesterday. See the other thread. I work weekends so the pictures will be uploaded to this gallery Monday.

Pictures as promised
I get to be the first one to post my loot.

My partner is Scottskipper
This is what she sent me.

This is the super cool, and very curious outside packaging. I am lothe to just throw it away. So, it is still on my dining table.

Jewelry! earrings, one pair made with real jade. The other with Photos of Indian women. They click lovely together when both paris are worn at the same time. The bracelet has matching jade beads. The oblong green item is a bottle opener. You guys remember bottle caps, right?

My son modeling the apron. He was only willing to do this if I didn't show his face. He looks here like he has just been busted and is about to be frisked. She also sent the shirt. And Mr teenage "fashion" critic does like Asian style patterns--considers it a "personal" style, LOL.

Pillow cases. Scottskipper used batik patterned fabric for these. Pretty stuff, isn't it?  My son stole off with the orange one as soon as they arrived--cheeky brat. He is also holding two pair of chopsticks. Both of us do like to use chopsticks. And they are hard to find in were we live.

I am grateful to Scottskipper for her thoughtful choices. We will enjoy all these for some years to come.

Nice package. Kitten Wrangler, I'm not going to be back in town until next Monday (going to a wedding in New Hampshire) so, if the package comes by then (which I doubt considering the distance) I wont be able to get to it until then. I will ask my family to tell me if it comes so I can at least tell you that it has arrived though. ^_^

Sorry for the late post, college has been hectic!  Anyways, here's the stuff Akriti sent me:



Here's a Ganesha idol:



Some awesome candle holders:



And some Indian Warli tribal art:




Also, she asked that I post the pics of the stuff I sent her.  So here they are.  Kinda worried... it should have been there a while ago.  =(


Here's a tray with an Indian elephant on it.



A side view of the vining flowers and ribbon that frames the elephant:



Another side:



Bottom:




And a mixed media painting of ohm text.  It's said during yoga to bring calmness to the individual.  LoL, knowing that she has a little kid, I bet she could use a bit of calmness and tranquility.  tehe

Also, the picture doesn't do it much justice.  It's actually red (i think thats one of her favorite colors)!  Yet the pic makes it look pink... -_-

I LOVE the Warli tribal art. It's a really nice design. And cross fingers that Akriti gets her stuff soon!!

I got an awesome batik covered parasol (perfect for September weather and sun), and Chinese satin bag and a couple little pouches and cases.

Gallstone's package arrived yesterday. I'm on the FLOOR with admiration!

I was pretty proud of what I sent her, and I still think it was a good package. But gallstones just blew my stuff out of the water.

Starting with dying her own silk, by all that's holy.  Shocked

Pix  when I recover from my swoon...
