Glass head photos! Wheeee! Sorry it took me so long-- I had a very big to-do around Halloween, and got sick on top of it.
First off, Tero packaged this VERY well. The entire thing was wrapped in layers of paper and those poofy plastic bubble pads. It arrived in perfect shape!
You can sorta see in this photo-- Tero made a face with foam stickers placed behind the eyes, emboidery floss behind the mouth, a large flower for "hair," etc. It was really well done! Didn't last long, though, 'cos we had to dump it.
The initial dump, wherein our heroes learn that tile floors and beads don't mix.
My "helpers" paw though things really quickly.
My son was super excited that many Halloween-type items were inside.
A more detailed dump photo-- in there you can see: a rubbery hand, a likewise rubbery ear, beads galore, foam stickers, stamps, buttons, foot-shaped paperclips (which my son was boggled by, for some reason), a tiny trophey, a hemp neckace, and tons of other fun bits and bobs
Some favorites-- a tiny cardinal and an owl thimble (I collect birds!), and a tiny frying pan with eggs in it.
More favorites: a wee birdhouse, a strange clown statue, buddha chopsticks, bag of resistors and such, a plastic lamb, moose button and necklace that reminds me, somehow, of Bjork's compass tattoo.
Yet more faves-- a teeny sewing machine, a rubik's cube, a chinese pincushion, a day of the dead guitar pick, a strange hedgehog sort of critter (I love this dude-- he's going in the little diorama I'm building on my nightstand), deer and toothpaste charms, foreign coins (Euros), handmade beads (with a Klimt pic on one! I think), a whistles with a bear's head, and one of the oddest things-- a sort of coin charm that seems really familiar. Actually it looks a lot like the Kuchi coins I use in my costuming (I'm an ATS bellydancer), but not quite. I like, regardless!
Tero, you are so amazing. This is the coolest prize evah! I'm going to be swimming in little treats for years. And the glass head is so neat.. I'm still trying to figure out what to fill it with when I display it. Oh, and from the kids:
"Thanks for sending us the cool head! I really liked the sticky ear and hand. I like the big blue marble. " (Sebastian, age
"Tank you Terrrooooooo!" (Abby, age 2)
