I have received from the wonderful MidnightOak, who was my angel for this swap. Here is the loot - which I absolutely love.


First everything I got. Except the postcards and brochure which I forgot to include. Look at the beautiful caplet and the lovely lining fabric.


The matching bag, which is really cute.


A pretty broach.


A box and the lovely cards that went with each item.


Tea and chocolate.

Thank you. Kiss

Wow! What a great package! I love the capelet and that brooch is adorable. The little cards that go with each item are so cute!

firstly, massive apologies for the late posting of this, which is really rude of me - sorry kenners and antarticraft!

kenners sent me a brilliant package, i took piccies when it came and they have been sitting in my camera ever since - i only noticed a few minutes ago that they wristlet that was also included isnt in the picture because i put it straight on when i opened it, and have worn it lots of times since! its felt and lace, with a felt flower on, i absolutely love it

this is my fabulous swappy gift -



everything came with beautiful explanation tags, my daughter pinched my tea set as she loves different types of tea, she says thank you!

since this picture was taken, the beautiful bag has been on a night out and was much admired, a couple of the notelets have ben used (i am keeping the last one because they are so pretty), and the bookmark is currently in russell brands booky wook  Grin

everything is brilliant, theres so much thought and detail in everything - i really love it! oh, the brooch is currently on a plain black velvet bag of mine and looks great!

thank you again kenners, and sorry once again for being so very late with this photo  Undecided

Here, finally (as in, I finally was able to take pictures, not she finally sent, which was a couple of weeks ago!), I give you my awesome swap package from tantrum!

First, this awesome "trilobite" display. This has already gone to my office at school:





Various baubles and lovelies:



A neckwarmer and a garter (no, you don't get to see this in action! Tongue ):



Thank you so much, tantrum! I love everything!

Thanks for posting pictures antarticraft. I really need to get a new camera. I have a confession about the nect warmer. It was origanally supposed to be a shrug. I started it just as soon as the swap started and ripped it out too many times to count. I have never had so much trouble with a knitting pattern! Finally at the last minute I decided it would have to be a neckwarmer. So I hope it does that at least! I also hope your boyfriend is recovering well.

Tantrum - is the yarn kidsilk? It feels like some stuff I've tried to make a hat out of, and it's really lovely but hard to work with (and nearly impossible to frog!). It's really lovely, and looks GREAT with my peacoat! I can't wait to wear it this winter!

I recieved my swap package yesterday!!  My partner was late in sending due to for reasons she relayed to me and the antarticraft.  My package was worth the wait without question!!

First everything arrived in the lovely box you see in the photo.  It has handles on each side and is currently housing all my jewerlry making supplies (so much nicer then plain shoe boxes!!   Grin)

Inside is what she included~~~  A clay(?) victorian shoe that is now on my shelf, some images of a Victorian Alice in Wonderland that will go into my scrapbook, a lovely necklace that has a heart shaped cameo and a charm for putting a couple of photos in, a chunk of rose quartz also on my shelf, a Victorian style hat hanging on my dresser, a tiny wooden mushroom and a pretty cameo pin



She also made me a really cute wallhanging!!



Thank you so much for a fantastic package!!  It was so much fun to open and admire!!

I really like everything in that last package. The wait was well worth it. I especially love the bird wall hanging!
