I get to be first. Kiss Wink

Here is my loot from aethelberga. Grin I am really enjoying this swap. Grin


First a gorgeous wall hanging of Ada Countess of Lovelace. If you want a fun look at Ada go here http://sydneypadua.com/2dgoggles/


A Beautiful cross stitch patch. I shall have to put it on a journal or a cushion.


A Madame de Pompadour pyramid bag. Very reminiscent of the era.


Celtic necklace and magnets.

Thank you aethelberga. It was a great package and a real lift when I got home and saw it sitting on the porch. Grin

Wow, awesome crafts! Love the wallhanging and the cross stitch!
Edit: I hope you don't mind, but I think the pyramid bag looks almost like it could do with a mature tag Grin

You know, I thought that at the time Cheesy, but i was running so far behind, my original Madame de Pompadour craft not having worked out, that I was inclined to let it go.

I recieved from MarthasAlterEgo today! C: I'm so excited about my stuff, and now very, very nervous about the package I'm sending her. C:

     The box was decorated really beautifully!


      And filled with wrapped presents, which I attacked with glee.
  
      

      First, I unwrapped these beautiful earrings! I put them on right away. I asked for Steampunk stuff, and these are the perfect mix of Victorian and fantasy. I adore them. C:

      

      Then, this neat journal covered in Da Vinci sketches. I'm almost scared to write anything in it, it's too pretty. (I apologize for the glare, and also for the weird burn marks on my kitchen floor. I am not quite sure how those got there.)
  
      
      

      And then, there was this gorgeous little shrine thingie with samurai and geishas on it! My kitchen has an asian theme, and this went perfectly next to a woodblock print!
  
      
        
      And my absolute favoritest was this grey bag! The colors really are reminiscent of the Industrial Revolution, which is another of my favorite periods.  My boyfriend would have stolen it, if not for the fabric yoyos on the front. And even still, I think he was considering it. Lol. He keeps looking at it with jealousy in his eyes.

    

     Thank you so much, MarthasAlterEgo! I   love everything, it was perfect!  You really made my first swap a great experience, I just hope I can cater to your tastes as perfectly as you did mine!

Wow, that notebook is so cool! And I love roomy project bags! I'd try to steal it too Grin

@aethelberga: oh, I don't think a mature touch makes the bag less attractive, on the contrary! Grin

Could someone tell me where to find the samurai in the print? I see the geisha, and I think I see a dragon, but the rest is just confusing...
