And as soon as I hit "post" on my last post, DH brought me the rest of the mail  Tongue  Apparently, our mailman delivers packages first, THEN envelopes.  Anyway, this arrived today as well and with a little sleuthing, I'm pretty sure this amazing bird necklace is from Vanyel.  I'm speechless, this is absolutely gorgeous!  Thank you so much!!!!

It came from me. I'm sorry, I didn't put Amaryllisroze on the package! I'm glad you like  her.

Thank you again, it didn't occur to me until the last minute to put something in the envelope saying who it was from, usually I'm not that organized! Smiley  People are going to be soooo jealous when they come to my house and see all of my beautiful birds from all over-lol

The necklace is from me. I really should have put my screen name on the package, but I always feel like the people at the post office give me funny looks to begin with. I'm so happy you like it. Also, very surprised that it came already, seeing as I cheaped out a bit on postage. Oh, and my sincere apologies for the messed up 925 stamp on the back. Just as I was swinging the hammer somebody distracted me. Said messy stamp is the result. But yeah, it's all sterling silver, including the chain, just in case you were wondering. Can't wait to start receiving my birdies!

Wow, Vanyel, that bird is amazing!

Rackycoo - I love the little legs on your bird. Such personality!

Amaryllisroze - I really like the way you did the wings.

The gallery is looking pretty swish so far.

Oh yeah, If I forget to write it on the package, if you get a birdy with the return address written in Chinese it is from me!

He looks so good in his natural habitat!  Cheesy

I used "Distress Stickles" on the wings. Its like glitter glue but not exactly glittery. Very cool stuff.

I think I included my screen name in all of my packages. If I didn't, mine are the ones with blue flowers and a return address to Finland. Tongue

Amaryllisroze: I LOVE yours. The button eyes are incredibly cute. Cheesy

Rackycoo: Oh, that's really cute! I saw the tutorial you did for those, and I really want to try making one of my own. Cheesy

Vanyel: I really like the necklace. The scene, as it were, looks so mysterious and serene. Smiley
