I came back from the dentist today to find a lovely box on my front porch! No cavities and a box?! Great day!
Here's my box: Pretty pretty tape! Pretty pretty tape that didn't want to let the paper go, so I could get to the card hidden beneath it!
This is what the top of my box said:
Happy Whimsy Day, indeed!
And when I opened it and pulled out all the tissue paper, I saw SESAME STREET! Sweet! I LOVE the street sign. I have big one just like it with my name on it!
In the open me box was this:
Both are perfect, by the way and exactly what I wanted! I really like the dangly feather part
I'm going to ask one of my friends who likes to make jewelry if she can take in the necklace just a tad-- thank you so much for making it long enough that no matter what it would def. fit!
The other thing spazgirl made was this. You can't really tell from the picture, but the paint is all swirly with different thicknesses to it. Very cool! It's going on my shelf of whimsies for sure!
Underneath all that stuff was this: A jewelry box! I think in its previous life it was a steamer.
These were inside the lid: Shrinky-dinks! Professor Layton and Luke, and GROVER! At this point, all was saying was, oh my! oh my! Everything is so lovely and fantastic!
At this point I started sorting all the stuff. I took a lot of pictures, but I don't want to post too many. I'm just going to skip to the end where I show everything in all its glory.
You can see everything better if you look at the bigger version, so head on over to my flickr if you'd like to see more/this picture closer. Tie-dye isn't the best background for photography.
I've been trying to guess what the hollow green plastic things are. They look like salt and pepper shaker monster feet. What are they really? Am I right? Other things include magnetic letters, foam sea creatures, wood pieces (pretty excited to paint these!), pressed marbles of all different colors, some teeny tiny tools, little doodad beady things that are kind of like charms, and a light bulb filled with beads! Very cool, and very awesome. Thank you so much, spazgirl! It has been a great swap! Now I just can't wait for you to get your box! Hopefully by tomorrow you'll get it. And just ignore the part where I spelled your name wrong.
I had to laugh though. Once you you get your box you'll see we sent each other some of the same things.
