I recieved from Midnight today! The package is awseome!! *jumps on Lucy*
This is Image heavy.... sawwy.


First thing I see.... "Why of course I am!"


"Why whats in this?" The blue fabric will be a perfect part of a bustle I am trying to start on. So thanks for that too!
The first thing I spotted was white and baby pink stripes with Lace. My cat was clearly fascinated as well.

WINGS!

How stunning are they?
Here is the bottom wing detail, my favourite.

Next we have a Rat! Blight to be correct!


And look, Blight is already loved by Lumpy, Crumpi and teddy (<-he doesn't really have a name yet, any suggestins)


Next I found this wonderful choker, and I must say Lucy had a better idea then I did.

Lace armlettes

Steampunk ring, which I cannot remove from my finger, not because it's too tight,no, because I am inlove with it!
Seriously, that is the best idea ever, I love it!

here is also a sideview, because I think the ring itself is wicked!

A flower hair clip, which matches the wings!

Lip gloss in muffin forms, and a mini notebook! Perfect for in my purse to take notes of ex-boyfriends in alphabetic order. *note, one of Emilies up coming book is entitled such*

          Book
the chamber of secrects.



This little box which contained the ring, it has gears on it as well. And I am sure this was made by Midnight.
And two card, the blue one reminds me of Vecona!

And this cool box, I dunno if it is made by Midnight, but I love it.


Everything, without the wings.

And the wings in their current place. I will have to hang up hooks so I can place them over my fairy collection, for save keeping until I wear them.


I love every lttle thing, thank you Midnight!
thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you

Tsubomi_Chan I'm so glad you liked everything! I had a fun time crafting for you! I especially enjoyed making the cards, I could really just let my imagination run wild.

And thanks everyone for your compliments on the embroidery! The skull-and-crossbones design is from Urban Threads. I'm happy to make more for personal swaps (each one is OOAK 'cause I color and stitch 'em differently) if anyone wants one. I have lots of other designs I can stitch up, too!

Here's my flickr just in case anyone wants to see more pics of Tsubomi's stuff or wants to check out the embroidery: http://www.flickr.com/photos/gothpanda/3505331164/in/set-72157603992765192/

/ shameless plug LOL

Love those cuffs and the corset, proxima!!

And Midnight, lovely work on the wings! LA-Fairy, I think they look perfect hanging from the shelf just like that!

Like they were suppose to be there, right?! But sadly I have made the experience that hanging wings up on their straps will take the stretch out of them, and you end up with two too large rubber straps. So I will get my dad to drill me a few holes and I'll place hangers there.

Thanks for the compliments and I'm happy Lady_Frog liked it,
but I must say I humbly bow before Midnight's amazingness, the stuff is just beautiful!
Also, I'm in love with the skull embroidery just as everyone else!

Check out the amazingness!! A million photos full of squeeee!:D

First, an AMAZING bag, which my housemates were convinced was bought, but NO! It was handmade - and LA Fairy is a novice bag maker, I can scarce believe how well made it is!! I of course eptied my bag and started using this one the moment I opened it! Cheesy


The best bit? It has a SPOON on it!!!


I got very excited when I found there was things INSIDE the bag, I kept finding more, it was amazing!
There was some lovely sweets (which got eaten, so no photo, whups!)
A sweet Alice in Wonderland style bottle necklace, Ive always wanted one of these!


A glass heart beaded necklace which is SO me!


An adorable brooch with a ratty on it


Possibly my fave, steampunk hairclip


Moooore adorable hair clips!


A pretty choker, which has a tiny teapot on it!


A book mark, which reads:
The message was clear. Stay within the domestic sphere and be adored and loved. Venture outside and be despised. 1840-1865.
I wonder; where did you get the quote from LA Fairy?


Then some big amazing things to decorate my new room;
A Willowtech House cameo painting


A glass photo art with a photo of Maggot(am i right?), EA and a confetti heart from the concert LA Fairy went to that EA blew into the crowd! Doesnt it look so proffesional?


A poster which LA Fairy did herself! Its on her deviantart and I looove it! I couldnt take good photos of the poster so heres the original artwork, isnt she talented!?



A vanilla teacup candle - i am obsessed with teacups!!


Last, but DEFFINITELY not least, my own mini top hat! (Which I put on as soon as it came out of the buble wrap!


Phew! Was that not one AMAZING swap package? I feel thoroughly spoiled and incredibly happy! Thank you sooooo much LA Fairy!

The quote is from this book. Women of the asylum, look inside on 'page/click' 6, bottom. I just bought the book, and it is very interesting! The asylum book by Emilie should be out this month. Do you guys know she actually was put in an asylum?!

I am sooooo happy you enjoy the gifts! It was a blast making them, as most of them I debuted at.
Did you like the coffee candies.... I'm addcited to them!
Haha, yeah, it's not store bought, I am surprised someone might think so. I tore my hair out getting the bottom inline.

@ Lady_Frog Thank you for giving me such an amazing Swap partner. Midnight and myself are already talking about a personal swap!

Omg, I almost forgot my FAVOURITE bit cos I was wearing it!  Cheesy Lol!

I have a Muffin Top! Thehehe! I wore this today and kept showing people saying 'I have a muffin top!' or 'I have muffin on my top!', much fun was had. I absolutely adore it and hardly wanted to take it off for the 30 secs it took me to take a photo of it!


Off to check out that book now LA Fairy!

LOL, I was just going, oh wait, the shirt was missing... did they open the package and decided they liked the shirt better? You never know at an postal service. xD
I am glad it made it, and you like it.
