Yay! I'm so glad you like your jar, Lucy Van Pelt!  It had been a while since I sent it, and I almost forgot what I put in there...it was cool to see the pics!  I can't wait to see what you have cooking for me Smiley

Some notes on what I sent:

A)  The quail was supposed to have little wire feet and I totally forgot to add them, because I'm lame.

B)  A few of the vintage jewelry pieces actually belonged to my late grandmother.  (The thing I really remember is that there are some screw back pearly earrings, and a pair of clip-on metal flowers.)  I had no use for them, and felt bad they weren't being used, so I sent them hoping that the cute pieces could have a better life.   Cheesy

C)  Some of the little toys - the two cars, the goofy christmas mouse marker, the crazy wheeled crustacean thing the little alien with the helmet and the green fuzzy bunny - were all prizes in some Kinder Surprise eggs that I got from another craftster.  They all came from Germany.

Did the little poly clay flower/anemone thing get there in one piece?  I was afraid it would get demolished in transit.  It was more an experiment than anything else...

Wow, Quail, the way you have everything arranged there is as beautiful as all the stuff from the jar!

Did anyone notice that there are several jars with contents that have letters that spell out the recipient's name?  I recieved my name in letter stickers.  I noticed it in another jar and sent letter charms that spelled out my partner's daughter's name and sent her initials in blocks.

Fun jars!

...and I wished I had thought of that as well! It's such a thoughtful personal touch.

OK- I admit it- I am addicted.
I have swapped two whimsy jars already and already have ideas for a third!
IS anybody interested in doing a private whimsy jar swap? If so PM me and let me know and we can exchange info. Grin
