I received from AnnaReilly today.  I absolutely am in love with my stuff.


First, there was a tote bag with an embroidered sugar skull, and a little apron.  Both are very well made.  The inside of the tote bag has the same sugar skull fabric as the apron, and a little pocket.  And the embroidery is so nice.  It's really beautiful, but I couldn't get a good closeup because the lighting is really bad right now.  I'll try to get a better pic tomorrow.

And then there were all the little pieces, a lovely selection of jewelry and hair things:

I love the multi-stranded necklace with the skull pendant, and the bottle cap pendant necklace, but I think the hair clips and the bunny sugar skull pendant are my favoritest things.  They are so beautiful.  I can't wait to wear them tomorrow.

Thank you so much AnnaReilly!

Oh you're welcome! Cheesy I'm so glad that everything arrived safely and quickly and most of all that you like it! The bunny skull kind of taxed my polymer clay abilities LOL, so I was a bit unsure of it. Sculpture is not my forte. :p

I love Librarylolita's  painting of the little baby skeleton inside the mama-too cute, Brenna. Is that weird to think a baby skeleton is cute? Tongue And the bunny skull is adorable, AnnaReilly.

I received my package from Inle_rah today too but waited to open it until my grabby-handed kids were in bed. Wink (I love 'em but I don't like to share. Wink)

She sent an awesome apron - my kitchen is a Day of the Dead theme, my favorite color is orange and I needed an apron - it's PERFECT.


She also sent a beautiful black felted bag with an embroidered calavera in all my favorite colors, a domino necklace with a painted calevera on it, three skully magnets that are already on my fridge and a skull stamp.


 Kiss Thank you!

What a great gallery we have!  So many great things - I love everything.  Some of the new things that really jump out for me:

Bunny skull pendant - LOVE it 

The apron is beautiful, is that a coral or salmon color?  It's gorgeous.

The felted bag is awesome

and the quilt and skull scarf are completely fabulous.

And now I will post all the fabulousness that I was lucky enough to receive from the wonderful miss catbread (you won't believe it's her first swap)!

It's not that I don't want to swap, it's that I often don't have time.  But feel free to ask (especially if it's one that's not too time consuming).
