Post offices always lie. LOL. Either it arrives too early or too late, in which case I prefer the first option LOL. It will get there soon.

Last but not least, I'm here to post photos of the amazing package I received from my fantastic partner!
I was really spoiled, so many lovely victorian items to decorate myself and my home, so let's get started:
The first item I discovered is this lovely altered fan.  She added these lovely fantail bird stamps that I just love.


Next I found these beautifully decorated sketching journal and picture frame with pretty lady postcard, some very lovely writing paper, and the little blue thing there is an adorable trinket box:

I'm going to put this in my sewing box as a special home for my favorite thimble.

Here's a little collection of lovelies:

Starting at the top right an going around clockwise we have a lacy, saucy red and black garter with roses(nice), A porcelain teapot pendant on a silver chain( so sweet), a skeleton hand and flower pin (That really made me smile), and a set of flower magnets with tiny images of a girl and boy (These are going to go on my sewing magnet board I keep by my machines)

I have to take a moment to seriously commend my partner here for her amazing skills at packaging.  Everything in the box was securely packaged and survived the trip all the way from New Zealand to the US. Even these glass candles:


Next I pulled out this awesome octopus box

And it was filled with awesome adornments

rose barettes, a cameo pin, skull earrings, and my 2nd favorite item in the package, this sweet whistle necklace that she made.  I love it so much!

And finally, my favorite amazing thing came in this fab box

Check this out!

It's a gorgeous purple fascinator!  "OOOOOOh!" I squeeled,  It's so pretty!
action shot so you can get a good idea of it's scale:


Thank you so much, Monky_Girl, you sent an amazing package that I'll be enjoying for a long time to come!  You're the best! (and for everyone else, I hope you don't get dizzy from all the photos or ill with envy  Cheesy )

Wow! What amazing stuff!

This swap was the coolest ever! I had so much fun and all of this has been sooooo inspiring. I want the next 6 months to go over fast. And most likely in 6 months, I will be in a house in texas. My dad just got a job offering..so we'll see if this will come through.

And today I recieved a personal swap from proxima, with craft supplies! I am drinking the rum tea right now to calm my nerves! It is yummy.

Why yes, I want bloomers next time too, and I might try myself at bloomers for the next swap too. ^^
