A geode! I remember being on vacation in Minnesota in the late 80's...My grandparents took us to a little souvenir shop and everyone else picked out Minnesota pencils and little vinyl pouches...but I wanted a geode. My cousins etc. made fun of me for getting an "ugly rock" that might not have anything inside. That night my Dad helped me whack it open with a hammer and it was beautiful inside. The other kids suddenly wished they had a geode! I still have it too!

Okay, that was story time with your old pal vegebrarian.  Cheesy

I think we did the same thing at Knott's Berry Farm around the same time period!  Ah, memories.

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 Grin  Grin  Grin  Grin  Grin  Grin  Grin  Grin  Grin  Grin   Grin  Grin  Grin  Grin  Grin  Grin  Grin  Grin  Grin   Grin  Grin  Grin

YES, I DID need that many exclamations and huge grins.  I received the MOTHERLOAD of whimsy and swappy goodness...here goes with the pic overload, maybe come back in 20 minutes if you're on dial up...Let's take a journey then, shall we?

Enter, LARGE box of wonder...


Behold!  The jars and 'padding' in all it's glory...clothing to recon, cross stitch supplies and books, mini stationary and office supply set, several ribbon spools, mardi gras beads, kitty toys, corks, jars of whimsies of course, and CANDY.  I made short work of the sour gummy octopi  Cheesy  Ring pops will be stickin' around for a bit though.  The picture that Tero drew as a teaser is in the top right corner...it's a card!  I am totally going to mat and frame it, excellent work!


2 of 3 (well, I count 4, actually) 'jars'...


3 of 3...rainbow goodness!  I'm SO not opening this until I get partners for the LGBT swap I am in.  I likely will use many little items from this jar, empty it out, and refill it to send to my partner in that one!


Akasha-kitty got a hold of this octopus after she played with the seahorse stuffie (there IS catnip in it, right?).  She climbed my desk chair, walked across my desk, and snatch'd the octopus toy off the desk and ran out of the room with it clutched in her mouth.  I managed to snap a few action shots of her with it out in the dining room...




Then, this was her about 15 minutes later...racked out, stoned, on the clothing 'padding' from the whimsy box and a fishie fabric...


Crafted items in this jar, other than the small embroidered seahorse stuffie...which wandered away before I could snap a pic...there was this LOVERLY beaded spider and 2 sets of Easter Bunny earrings!


Random picture of me in all MY early morning glory with mardi gras beads draped all over...


This is what I call the 4th 'jar'...a large Ziploc full of buttons, whimsies, ephemera, and knick knacks...even a bag of hemp jewelry for me to wear or take apart to recon new pieces with the beads/charms!


Some faves out of this one...


Decorated paint can 'o' wonder!  This was one of my fave 'jar's to open...this is the best spillage pic ever Smiley  If you look into the 'jar' you can see Mr Hanky the Christmas POO in there!  LOL!  Other great stuff in here includes more buttons, beads, tiny creatures and charms, figurines, jewelry, pins, conchos, ephemera, dominoes and SO much more!


My faves from THIS jar...


And now, the mermaid's treasure.  How in the world did you ever get her to part with this?  More super beads, bobbles, 'fish scales', jewelry, coins, buttons, shells, fabric, and a squishy fun octopus!


Mermaid crafts  Grin


Faves from the mermaid stash...if you look closely you can see a 'mini me' of herself in there


The 'jar'...this lovely lady must have been storing this in a great hiding place under the sea!


Tero, you REALLY REALLY REALLY outdid yourself this time!  I can't believe how much awesome stuff I got!

More pics in my craftster photo hosting, including closeups of the work on the crafted items!
