Oh I love that pink bunny.  Smiley  Especially how it was peeking out of the jar with something spangly for an eye.  Smiley

Amazing jars!  And I am still always surprised by how much comes out of them!  It's like they are all clown cars Grin

Gorgeous ephemera Phizzychick!  And I love that bracelet Lilylola.

It's not that I don't want to swap, it's that I often don't have time.  But feel free to ask (especially if it's one that's not too time consuming).

The crocheted item is a little bag, the plastic case at it's side came inside!!

Ooooh...neat! And is that a felted flower (or tiny head of lettuce)?

Yes, I forgot the note to go in it! Roll Eyes I'm so glad you like it all!

So, the crocheted case was a gift from BeaG, designed for lip balm and things, I thought you could either make up your own, hence the container, or just use it to carry really small things about! Cheesy

The HP golden snitch bookmark was made by our very own leader RubyTuesday! I bought it in the 'Shop the Swap'.

And the green felt is a flower, but it would make a most excellent lettuce! Grin

I love your jar RT! The rabbit and goldfish especially!

I would SO be in on a round two of this.  Such fun!  I love seeing all the neat ideas everyone came up with.  They're all so lovely!

Although I do have to say that "performance anxiety" is at it's peak as my jar goes through the mail Tongue  I've been watching the usps dc # as it's left each station... Patience is not among my personal talents, lol...

RubyTuesday, that's a wonderful little collection, there! The bracelet is so pretty (nicely done lilylola). Love the goldfish, and the fortune teller fish, too! And, that bunny is way cute!

I was feeling a bit guilty about putting something into the jar that I had received in a swap, so I'm glad someone else did too!

And now, I'm hungry for a teeny green salad...

Hoo!  So, as I was uploading my pics to photobucket I noticed there were 16!  I don't think I'll post them all here, but I will do links, because those 16 were even after weeding out a few and I just don't think I can do the jar justice with fewer.

Ok, this is the box after opening, taking out the top couple layers, realizing I was going to take photos and putting them back.  I mentioned in the original swap thread that it sounded like the jar had broken, but it hadn't; the lid just came off and so the in-jar and out-of-jar contents were jangling.


Layer 2:
<a href="http://s181.photobucket.com/albums/x256/TheMistressTLF/?action=view&current=JOW-Swap000.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i181.photobucket.com/albums/x256/TheMistressTLF/JOW-Swap000.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

Layer 3: Is that the un-broken (whew) jar I spy in there with some other goodies?  Indeed.


The Jar Itself: I noticed as I was resizing that this view doesn't show the ribbons and pearls of the garter, but it does show the most stuff.  Notice that the lid is full of whimsies!


When I was almost through unloading the jar I realized that there was probably a nice view from the bottom.  Glad I caught that in time!

Contents of the jar lid:

Look at those cute animal rubber bands! I pulled out the tortoise and the hare just for you guys.  I love the skeleton hands!

Contents of the jar:

That was hard for me to photograph.  Here's a close up of part of it.

The contents of the box outside the jar:

There's some guts (I love guts!), a frog stuffy (I love frogs), a Vampire in a Box kit, some mints with my name on them - the tin looks like a Massachusetts license plate with my name on it, a foam puzzle of a "digestant system" to name just a few things.  See a close up of my favorite part of the "digestant system" puzzle - a "locking" anus... I can think of a time or two when that would have been real handy.  Shocked

The hand crafted whimsies - a dragon pin and a credit card cozy!

A better shot of the credit card cozy which is going to be very handy on evenings out when I want to take a small purse with just a card and ID!  It had some gold metallic shimmer, so it's glamorous!  Why didn't you send a real credit card, gossamer_gull?   Wink
<a href="http://s181.photobucket.com/albums/x256/TheMistressTLF/?action=view&current=JOW-Swap07.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i181.photobucket.com/albums/x256/TheMistressTLF/JOW-Swap07.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

So just like a greedy kid, I was pouring through the box and taking photos before I read the note in the envelope  Embarrassed, but I learned that there is an "Art of Chinese Caliigraphy" and a Proper Penmanship Kit in my jar.  This photo is of the items from both of those.
<a href="http://s181.photobucket.com/albums/x256/TheMistressTLF/?action=view&current=JOW-Swap01.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i181.photobucket.com/albums/x256/TheMistressTLF/JOW-Swap01.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

This thing cracks me up.  You can't see it inthe photo, but there are black bugs in that red bulge.

Couple things of note: In the close up of the jar contents you can see one of those pennies that you flatten at a tourist-type site.  I don't think she knew this, but I have a collection of those!  This one is from the Salem Wax Museum and seems to had a Day of the Dead skull on it!  Wee!  Also, there are several items in my jar that are not unlike items I sent in her jar!  Not exact matches, but similar in theme.  It'll be a few days before she gets hers so I won't say what. Annnnnnd I feel like I may have made out way better than she.   Cry

How's that for a loooooooong post?

Hey Phizzy, what's the melted butter paper-thingie? Is it a recipe for melted butter? Because that would make my day.

MistressT, you got such a fun jar! And, it's funny because I sent my partner a couple of smashed pennies too (New England Aquarium and Franklin Park Zoo...both in Boston). I have a collection of my own, so the next time I go to Salem (which won't be around Halloween...madness...once is enough Wink ), I'm looking for the penny smashing machine there!

I also love the skull hands! Such fun stuff!


ETA: Just wanted to say my partner already received, so I didn't spoil any secrets Grin
