Well, if no one else is interested I'm going to claim astormorray's wooden cabinet, to decorate and use to display my swap treasures!
I shudder to think about the postage on that thing, though.
If it's way too much, let me know and we'll work out something else.
This is my 2nd claim for this round. I just sent off my first one.
My list, to which I'll gladly add more tomorrow night if no one's claimed anything...For your claim, you can pick any THREE of the following (or one thing from the "pick 2" list and 1-2 things from this "pick 3" list):
- these shiny doodads, flat on their back-side-- butterflies, flowers and bows. Im not sure if theyre glass or plastic, somewhere in the middle...
- 6 small vintage "open house" cards with envelopes
- unopened pack of Ranger Rick valentine cards! Theseve got to be old.
- 2 unfinished wooden door-hangers for decorating
- An approx. 6x6" needlepoint on Aida cloth that says in dainty letters, "F*** your gender". (The actual piece has it spelled out, and I'm not posting a photo for obvious reasons.)
- Loves Me/Loves Me Not wheel, in plastic packaging, comeswith envelope for mailing. Spin the wheel instead of picking a poor daisy's petals off! There are also answers like those of a Magic 8-Ball inside of the wheel (in the 2nd picture), with a window on the outer/top wheel.
- Outer cover (front and back covers still attached to each other) of old pulp paperback novel, airline/pilot themed. Some pages from the book included.
- A bunch of these white satin pieces embroidered with an F in a metallic gold (Teachers: flunk out your students with style!)
- Foam bear stamp
- Gift Baskets for All Seasons, by Elizabeth Jane Lloyd
- The Stencilling Workbook by Judy Tuttle (ISBN 0-88266-682-7). Primarily floral designs.
158 pgs, 50 projects.
- Sculpture in Paper by Ralph Fabri. Nothing abstract in the book, all about making 3-dimensional people and animals out of paper.
- The Complete Guide to Rubber Stamping, by Grace Taormina
- This piece of ranch-themed (?) fabric (its draped from the top of the bed downward, for scale)
- squishy mold for ice cubes, soaps, etc.
- Vintage Strawberry Shortcake "Spank the Berry Bird" card game. The cards are in the same style as the rest of the old Strawberry Shortcake illustrations, but they do not have any images of the characters themselves, with the exception of the Berry Bird.
- Vintage "Little Cindy" doll
- Animal print fabric pack - faux fur/plushie material (it doesnt look or feel like real fur) with a yard or 2 of plain cotton (?) leopard print
- 12x12 scrapbook paper grab-bag - mainly modern girlie style and bright colors, 20+ sheets, very few duplicates
- Black beaded necklace with pink and crystal accents. Those are Barbie feet down in the corner, for scale.
- Small glass paints in multiple colors, from beginners kits, with an applicator. Ill include the instructions from the original pseudo-stained glass kit.
- Book entitled "Water" for altered book project. It's an old USDA Agricultural Yearbook publication, available online in full-text, but the best part is this great bookcover of a disembodied cow head arising from the water! I've already pulled out several pages to facilitate less-bulky altering; my original idea was to make the book about this cow named Water who was out for revenge...but the idea never went anywhere. It's got good potential, though:
- 4 handmade journals made from recycled materials. I will try to send ones that match your taste. This one is just a sample front and back:
- Frame decorated with fortunes from fortune cookies and bits of color here and there. Includes the wall-mount hardware.
- 3 beaded safety pin cuff bracelets - 1 small purple with sequins, 1 medium reddish, 1 large (the rainbow one).
- Vastu Vidya Handbook: The Indian Feng Shui by Juliet Pegrum
Or, pick two of the following:
- Thick book of variety of sheer fabric samples, most white or off-white but several colors as well.
- Bob Marley book, by Margaret E Ward (ISBN #0681418664). 80 pages. Good condition, has TONS of color and b&w images, it could be kept for its original booky purpose or torn into for reuse of the images.
- 4 matching vintage schoolhouse cutouts. Appr. 8" tall, some with a reversed design so they can be placed back-to-back. Small hole in the top of each. Would make a great cover for a round-robin journal/book about school life.
- Rolls of color-coded stickers with days of the week, in a few languages. They're in a floppy plastic enclosure that keeps them together.
- 3-d paper Muppet Show centerpiece, circa 1980.
- Vintage embossing kit - pretty much all thats left is the 6 vials of embossing powder (copper, gold, silver, red, blue, and green):
- Set of 8 pulp paperbacks with cool covers (If you just want the covers and not the insides of the books, you can claim something else from any part of my list because the postage wont be nearly as expensive that way)
- Pick 5 vintage childrens picture books from the following photos. California Plant/Animal Communities, the pirate book, and Wise Dog have already been taken. Newest of these are from the early 1980s (the Sesame Street Little Golden Books):
- Vintage half-apron with pocket. Has some small grease-stains on it.
