i received a lovely shirt from disneybelle!  i happen to be wearing it right now, but since i no longer have a digital camera there will sadly be no action shots (i say sadly because it looks quite fabulous on me!  Wink)

it's a black tee with flowers painted (freehand, i think!  Shocked) around the neckline.  hopefully disneybelle will post pics so you all can see how pretty it is!

she also sent me a little sampler of eyeshadows, which is excellent because i used to LOVE those things as a kid... and, um, yeah, i still do Smiley

thanks so much disneybelle!

I didn't take pictures of what I sent cardigan, but there was
-a big vintage ephemeragasm (to steal and tweak the term from the Dulcinea yarngasm  Cheesy),
- some varied fabric,
- weird old items like the top of a women's bowling trophy and a vending machine "Homie" (I assume they don't sell those outside the U.S.! They're fairly popular in some circles where I'm from, and my ex had a huge collection. Here's what they are: http://www.vendingondemand.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=211),
- and a recon journal from the cover of this book:
http://cgi.ebay.com/Very-Special-People-Human-Oddities-Circus-Freak-Book_W0QQitemZ220221480709QQihZ012QQcategoryZ378QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem#ebayphotohosting
The full title is on the back, which reads, "Very Special People: The Struggles, Loves, and Triumphs of Human Oddities". I couldn't resist getting that book and making a journal out of it! I sent some of the pictures too, but most of the pictures I sent in another claim to Banga.

all i have to say is wow.  WOW.  WOWOWOWOW!!!

postman rings my buzzer, says i have a box.

18 pounds of box.

AsphaltQueen filled one of those wishes i've had for ages.... someone had posted, they took some of those old vintage wooden soda crates, and used them for yarn storage.  all those cubbies!

and AQ found some, AND claimed me for them, AND got them, AND got them shipped here, AND they arrived today!!  (prize for most AND's in one sentence?)

here's the before - you can see the rings from the soda bottles (yes, once i post these pictures, i'm off to scrub these out)



and here's what i'm doing with them - is this too cool?  LOL, my very own yarn store going on here!!



(and yes, that's only the smallest dent into my stash!)

AQ, thank you from the bottom of my heart to the top of my yarn stash - this was SO much fun today!

Oh, wow, Dulcinea, those look awesome! (Well, at least with the yarn in 'em.) I'm so sorry you have to actually clean 'em and get 'em pretty - guess that's what you get for "vintage" off ebay.  Undecided

And your "after" pics have helped me to determine that I, too, need to get me some of those. It looks like the little cubbies ended up being just about the perfect size - yea!

i keep going in there just to look at it all!

these are probably most of the 'best' of my yarns... ones i hand dyed for a particular thing, or that i bought because i loved the color.... and i suspect you're looking at the yarns for my next projects... everything from socks to lace shawls, and i think there's a bamboo yarn tank top in there too (the tropical colors in the left side box, 8 skeins (about 1500 yards) of 100% bamboo yarn, bought on eBay)

LOL, i wonder how many more i can fit in my craft room?  we're about to have a run on old time soda crates!

thank you again, AQ - seriously, i'm grinning like a kid on this one!

TwiztidBlood, you distract Dulcinea and I'll reach out my arm and grab the yarn, then we can share it.  I'm sure two can take her on  Grin

That's a fantastic idea for storing yarn and, like many others, I'm envious of your stash!
