Yay! So both my partner Lariarocket and I received our packages! Smiley   -- PIC HEAVY POST!

So first off, here's what I received from Lariarocket....by the way....I LOVE IT ALLLLLL! Smiley Oh yes, break out that wist, my fellow swappers!! Smiley



Here is a eye mask in one of my absolute favorite color combos!! (so comfy too! and i LOVE that i have a spiffy drawstring bag too):


Lovely blue tshirt with a stencils image of Lauren Bacall, one of my favorite actresses from the film noir genre! Fits perfect too Smiley


How awesome is this? It's a small wooden chest that has gold glitter and it says "True Hollywood Glamour"! Also comes with aweomse magnets! The pictures inside are of Bogie and Bacall - by far the best team!!


Love this hanging display of vintage pinup girls!! Love it!! Smiley


Lariarocket, YOU ROCK! Smiley I know you said you did but I truly hope that you liked my package as much as I love yours!! Since she asked me to post pics, here's what I created:

This started out as a recipe box but then became an embroidery kit and now is a recipe box Smiley It's got kitschy retro images all over...the inside says "Well that takes care of the housework!"


There were two but I cant remember why I didn't take a pic of the other one...they're cozies for, just about anything Smiley


Dishcloth with a loop for hanging, it says "What's Cookin'?" Smiley


Oh and this was probably my favorite to create...it was awesome fun! Tea towel with a retro roller girl:

(For those Houston dwellers, I found the images from teh Houston roller derby! lol)

They are. There is a great diner book (which now the name escapes me-I'll find it for ya) that has the history of drive in's and diners and bunch of pictures-I totally forgot I had it. I resined the coasters.
