I received from Virg today, and be prepared for lots of photos, because she ROCKED her first swap!
First thing I opened was the Arabian Nights ~ Ali Baba and the 40 Cats
I admit it. I squealed.
Virg even snagged pics of my cats to use in this! The grey and white cat in the lower left corner of the square tray is my cat Zeus, sporting the green turban. He's also lurking on the side too...I should put my bellydance jewelry in this, but I don't think I can bear to cover up the cats. The amount of time looking for the variety of turbans must have been insane. lol
And my cat Luna that passed away graces the lid of the box with the words Open Sesame. I LOVE IT. Can't say it enough.
Next I have a trio of adorable matryoska Red Riding Hood felt ornaments....
and the back, nice details...
And the altered book I received is just wonderful, so much time and detail put into it!
It is a Cinderella Day of the Dead book! Here is the cover, love the shoe:
