Behold the awsomeness:
I opened up the box to find my favourite idol staring up at me: Rita Hayworth!!

 
Inside the box was a heart shaped box in a pretty pink bag Smiley


Everything smelled of roses when i opened it up!! lovely  Cheesy
Inside the box there was a card from her and maany other cute thigns ^^


Antique postcards, and roses and dior handcream!! oooOOooo Tongue



There was a really cute bow pin that goes brilliantly on my cardigan!


and a cute little tin:

inside there was a mariln monroe keyring (which i now have on my keys! Cheesy) and another cute bow pin with little pearl on it.

There is a GAWGEOUS large necklace!!!

action shot:

Ho yes Cheesy sorry i didn't get all the necklace in the photo-i kept trying to do a picture of it and me in it so you could see the scale Tongue
There was a bag of cut-outs from old magazines and books and paper:

very cute.

Well most everyone.  There is a package in transit, one I hope is in transit, and possibly one flaker.  But the good news is I already have an angel volunteer - just going to give it a little more time.

Thanks, I actually run a charity shop. Most books that we cant sell go for recycling but these pics came from a 1950s copy of good housekeeping which was falling apart but the adverts in it were so cool i had to buy it!! I also collect old film books from the 40s and 50s and cut them up! my friend thinks its criminal to destroy them but there are always such great pics and photocopies dont look as good!  Cheesy

Pictures will be coming when I finish stuffing my face with dinner. IT IS SUCH AN AWESOME PACKAGE!!!!! I couldn't wait to tell you guys I got it!

EDIT! Here are the pictures!
First there is a totally awesome necklace with my name and a too cute martini glass. Can you believe it was her first time with shrinky dinks?



Next we have some record bowls. One didn't make it during the journey  Embarrassed but I think I can fix him. I'm so glad you made me these, I've always wanted some and didn't have the heart to melt records!


Then we have some totally kick ass 50s stickers.

And the obligatory nosey kitty shot, she just wouldn't stay out of my photos.

A totally awesome magnet paper doll! She is so cute and has found a new home on my fridge. I, of course, was too excited to play with her that I didn't get any pictures of the rest of her clothes. Roll Eyes The Megan magnet is from maehem too!

And finally an amazing blue leopard apron! I've been needing a kick ass apron too! Great minds think alike!

And a group shot to end the evening.

Alyssa, can I just say I love you? This package is too good!
