I received my package from the amazing Mrs Jenicat today.
Each and every item in the package is truly loved.
Words cannot describe how incredible everything is, so I will try to show you in photos. I will not apologize for the insane number of pics I have here
Adorable pinback buttons with trees, forest creatures and naughty words - my favorite things!
A desperately needed and adorable sewing machine cozy, shown here already in use 10 minutes after arrival!
A wonderful felt leaf brooch that will go on my hat when its chilly and my bag when its warm.
Girl with bird on her head stamp!! I have a stamp just like this (but smaller - this one rocks!) on my wist. Last year during the dotee swap, carrieme made me a dotee with a bird on her head and Jeni loved it and then saw the stamp on my wist it was modeled after. She remembered!!
I took the other pieces outside to show them off better in the morning sun.
Super long finger knit lariat with felted balls and felt leaves. So soft and pretty!
Two pairs of sterling silver earrings - one with labradorite, moonstone and garnet, the other with iolite (all of my favorite stones!!!). The silver pendant reads "she swims against the tide". My eyes misted when I saw this.
A stunning bronze freshwater pearl and dark turquoise on copper & leather necklace. This is SO my style.
A chunky cluster bracelet like the one she made Phizzy in the first tree swap!! I had wisted it as soon as I saw it. I could stare at the beautiful beads for hours. SHE MAKES HER OWN HEADPINS!!
I am making you all see THREE pics of the last item, and I still cant capture its beauty. a ropey cluster bracelet of faceted labradorite rondelles. I had this bracelet on my wist to show my love of labradorite, I never expected anyone to actually make such a phenomenal piece for me. I wish I could capture the beautiful blue-green flash of the stones. There are a few wee iolite rondelles near the end clasps.
This pic shows a bit of the lovely flash. It also looks like a weird petri dish on first glance.
Jeni, thank you so much for being such a beautiful partner, generous and talented artist, and most of all my friend.
hugs and love xxx
