I don't think we had flakers. For some reason, the tins between babbetto and hbean never made it.  Tongue

Yeah, still nothing  Cry.
I'm so bummed too cuz the tin I sent was so cool and could never be duplicated as I used one of a kind stuff on and in it. Thankfully I did take pics in case it's never seen or heard from again.

Aww I thought we just had bad postmen, not flakers Sad

I can angel too if need be BUT I'll remind people Angeling is a great way to become an FoC Smiley If it's between me & a non-FoC, give the non a chance at FoC status Smiley

That is a small part of the reason I offered I'll admit. But it seems like it is the post office that flaked, and if the two partners don't want to/can't make another tin I would be glad to.

Well it looks as though my tin actually did arrive at Bhean's doorstep...yahoo!!

This is what I sent her.

Wrapped and ready

The Bottom

The Contents

Full

The Top

Sorry for all of the huge pics but I figured the swap was almost over so why not, hehe.

Bhean likes Michael DeMeng's artwork so I went with that for my inspiration and sent her lots of rusty stuff as well. The little bottle, which did not photograph well, has gears and paint on the top and watch parts on the inside.
I hope you like it Bhean.

The eyeballs are just a little creepy as they are Jodie Fosters and I totally have the "She's got Betty Davis eyes" song playing in my head. The leftover magazine is what is really creepy.
I need to hide it. It's been laying on top of some stuff for awhile now  Shocked staring at me...or...not...sta ring.

Ahem

MY TIN ARRIVED!
Granted it's not the original lost tin but Bhean sent me a replacement tin and it arrived today.


The gorgeous top view


The copper tape front view. Ignore the fact that I had the top opened whan I took this pic.  Roll Eyes


The insides.


And all the wonderful goodies all spread out.

Thank you so much Bhean!!
