I received from knickertwist and I'm all a twitter! This has been one of my favorite swaps ever! I love every single thing she gave me! Here's the loot:
Group shot

I am overwhelmed by all of the goodies in the package. Each one came wrapped in white tissue paper with a piece of twine that said birdie things. Like "tweet", "sing", "whistle," etc. You get the idea.
You can see here that she gave me a little notebook, and a birdie with a lovely curly tail, which will look perfect on my Christmas tree. And then there was the other treasures. Here they are.

I took individual shots too.

First is this art deco style dove. I think it's made of paper clay, but it looks like alabaster. It's so sweet.

In the background, you can see the great bird toille fabric, and the jar of whimsies. I've been so fascinated with this little thing. Every time I turn it, I see something new.

This is a horrid picture, but it's a broach with a beautiful Robin's egg nest with birdie charms hanging from it. I'm thinking about what I want to wear it with.

One of knickertwist's signature pieces. I love this to pieces. It's why I asked her to be my partner.

She crafted this straight from my wists. I walked all around the house looking for the perfect place to put it.

And this little birdhouse is so sweet! It fits in with my house perfectly. I love shabby chic!

My pictures are horrid, because they're from my phone, and do not do her work justice. I am pleased as punch.
