OK batteries found - photo's taken - lots of them, be warned - photo heavy post ahead!
So, this is how it arrived - all that brown is parcel tape - it made me chuckle cos it was soo hard to get into!!!!
but well worth it when I did and all this came spilling out:
it felt like Christmas!!!!
Firstly, everything together (Except for the brooch - which I forgot to take off!)
See that open book at the back??? That is my new Care of Magical Creatures book - see:
(excuse the flash reflection!)
It's open cos I hoped it would show the amazing text / drawing - but it's come up white so I took another one of the actual page:
Lots of the pages are decorated like this - and others are blank! This will become my new swap book - for writing down all those details of what I'm swapping etc!
Then - there's my magic wand pen, which I love soooo much!:
How awesome is that box??? And the pen is just - wow! I love stationary especially unusual stuff - so am really, really pleased with this!!!!
Then a rembrall - which I NEED! I'm always forgetting things - and some Pygmy puffs, which made me chuckle - you'll understand Samsara when you receive yours!:
A beautiful bracelet - I believe the big beads are handmade!
And lastly - a matching hat, scarf and brooch!!!!!
(hat and scarf)
and an action shot showing the flower brooch too:
(I only took the hat and scarf off to go out - and put it back on again when I got home - back to front I know - but they're so snug and warm - can't wait 'til it gets cold enough not to look mad when wearing them out!)
Thank you so much Samsara - I can't begin to tell you how happy I am right now!
