Yippppppe!  I received my goodies from Allegory today!  I can't even tell you the awesomeness, you'll just have to see for y'allselves.  But, I am going to keep you in suspense until tomorrow, as I don't have the compatible cord for the digi camera right now... Will post pictures tomorrow. 

Also, I sent out my package... had to rush to get to the post office... I dilly dallied way too long on the wrapping up part, making it look like I had imagined.. "oh, this will only take a few minutes to wrap up, honey."  Ha!  now I get to wait in anticipation to see if allegory likes it  Kiss

I love this swaptastic bunch of chicas and chicos, and am considering the sea swap... but I only have a day to figure that out.  Thanks again for all the good energy this fairy, fairytale, folklore journey has brought.

OK!  Here it is!  The package I received from Allegory in all its awesomeness...

Here it is by the front door!  Yay jump up and down!



And the first view.



Everything set out...



This is what I opened first!  Can you believe how adorable this is!  Fairy wings for my doggie!  What a thoughtful idea to make something for my pet to dress up if she wants to!  Margo was leary at first, then she just acted like it was her regular harness.  (I know she has the biggest ears ever, now it's almost like she can fly with her wings and ears together)  Cheesy



Allegory made me this awesome polymer clay egg.  Fairies can hatch from eggs too, in some enchanted places.



Check out this sweet cuddle pillow.  I love that fairy fabric, AND I love patchwork quilting- It couldn't fit my likes any better, really.



I opened this next... It's a glimpse into a fae house.  She is not in right now, but I might just catch a glimpse of her if I'm quiet and patient.



Can you believe how cute this little bed is on the leaf???



It was really hard for me to get a good picture of this little goddess beauty pewter figure.  She instantly jumped up into her new home in my little plant.  I think she fits perfectly in there.  The little succulant plant looks just like her dress that Al painted on!



This is what I opened last!  I love love it.  It is the perfect size for going out downtown to hang out on the patio in the summer sunshine!  She appliqued 3 little green polka dot mushrooms, which match the lining fabric.  I love this too much.



Oops, this is what I opened last.  It was folded up in the box, and on it was written, "I will spoil the suprise."  Well, some may laugh at me at this point (nae) because I nearly opened this up first, as I was like, HUH? Spoil what??  ha ha.



It gives an explanation of each of the crafts Al made.  It really does show the care and effort she put into making these gifts for me!  Thank you so so so so much Al, you rock.  And you know, i don't see a single loose thread- not that I was looking!  Wink  Everything is great, really great.  She also threw in CHOCOLATE, yes, and mint choxie bar (I love chocolate and mint, and this one is good, really good), gummy bears!! and some frog/prince charming stickers, some extra of the sweet faery fabric, AND a little mini grow-your-own daisy kit.  I think little pewter goddess will like that one too. 

hugs!
