Happy Day!! Happy day!! I received from cigarettesandvalent
ines today!NOTE: I had to take the pics outside cuz of this weird camera that loves to oversaturate everything in our cave lighting.Unopened box
- It was the most difficult picture to take. All three of us (me, mom, and daughter) hovered over it while the camera charged.
The first thing I pulled out was a letter and the awesome Alexander Henryvintagey jol/black cat fabric piece
. It's bigger/wider than the pic is. We're talking about making a couple trick-or-treat bags for the kids to use. That is, if I can muster the courage to cut it up. I just love it like it is! Would it be wrong to just frame and hang it?
Then it was straight on to the can!
The really cool decoupaged can
with the vintage witch!
Now here is where it starts to get creepy.Wax fangs
- My daughter saw some pics online of people wearing these while I was surfing for ideas for this swap. After I had to explained why the folks in the pics looked so strange, she immediately wanted a pair. Well, we live out here in the sticks where not one store carries them. Of course, my luck. So, YAY!!! She was thrilled! We got some!!! How did she know?!
Next, it gets even creepier. I pull out this:
A gorgeous reticle bag
embroidered with a cobweb pattern that is perfect. My mom immediately snatched it from my hands before I could even open it! She has been wanting a bag to carry favors in for the renaissance fair and this is the perfect color for her outfit. NO WAY she's gettin' it! It's MINE!! It is just the coolest thing.
And, there is cool stuff inside!
A skeleton "monkey paw" barrette
, shrinky dink magnet shepherdess/witch
, and a beautiful key necklace
Lots of other stuff in the box and can:Shrinky Dink Skeleton Bookmark
- so much detail on it!All items together
- and there was a lot of them!
There was a cat cookie cutter, pencils, plastic spider/bat/skull rings, buttons, a cute owl notebook (not pictured cuz daughter took it), 2 more skeleton hands, confetti, and CANDY!! Lots of CANDY!! Muhuhaha!!! Tootsie Pops, Smarties and Pop Rocks (not pictured)
Thanks you oodles, cigarettesandvalent
ines!! Hope I didn't forget anything. It is the best swap package! My most favorite of them all so far cuz it's for me. Hehe. The necklace and bag are definitely going to be accessories for my witch costume. The bag will get lots of use at faire, as well. Can't thank you enough.
