I received from lemonianta on Friday night!  I received not one, but TWO packages and they were filled with goodness!

As a warning, I take lots of photos of swap packages - I want to show ALL the goodies and details!

My pretty pretty princess cat, Sasha, received two cat toys filled with premium kitty nip.  lemonianta said her kitties were trying to get into the box and Sasha flipped out when I threw one to her, so it must be good stuff! Wink Cheesy


Breakfast tea, afternoon tea, Jaffa Cakes (which I LOVE), organic chocolates of all sorts and childhood candies that we haven't broken into yet, we're waiting for everyone to be home tonight!


3 postcards (hilarious signs!) and the card she sent - I think it's lovely, although I can't imagine eating all that naughtiness for breakfast!

A map of the Tube, London crafty bits, the cutest change purse that says "Queen of Hearts" and has a crown charm and a mug with pics of Henry VIII and his wives.  When you fill the mug with hot liquid, HIS WIVES DISAPPEAR!!!!  I think this was my favorite item of all! Cheesy  Henry VIII has long been a favorite part of history for me, so this really hit my soft spot. Wink


A tea cozy and a tea wallet done in lovely gingham - makes me think of having tea in the country. Smiley


Three magazines: two crafty ones and a music one that has me busy looking up bands!
\

She also made this amazing bag, here's the front of it, it has a magnetic snap.


A zippered pocket on the flap!


zippered pocket on the inside with more pockets still!


and to top it off - another zipper pocket on the back!


I should have enough places to put all my things in this bag!

Lemonianta - you really pegged me, thank you!  I only hope that you like your package half as much!

Very nice indeed! I love that mug and change purse, and the tea cozy is pretty awesome, too! I need to get a tea pot...

My brain hurt like a warehouse, it had no room to spare
I had to cram so many things to store everything in there
And all the fat-skinny people, and all the tall-short people
And all the nobody people, and all the somebody people
I never thought I'd need so many people

I received from mpemporium a few days ago, but haven't been able to post pictures (I left my camera at a friend's house and just got it back today!). I LOVED the package! It was awesome and so much fun to open!

First off, my FAVORITE English cookie, Jammie Dodgers, and some delicious tea (we have Twinings here too, but the English box is so much more interesting, my box of Twinings is just a plain yellow Sad ).


Next, some very pretty English yarn (squeeee!) and some socks with the Union Jack on them!


I was super excited just for this little pouch, which I'm using for change right now, but when I opened it up, there was the coolest jewelry I've ever seen!!


Sorry for the terrible pictures (I'm not so good at close-up pictures), but here's some closeups of the jewelry! The necklace is a little suit of armor, and the earrings are dragons!



She also sent some local maps and brochures which I totally forgot to take a picture of, but I had so much fun reading them! One of them is for Kent, England, and I live in Kent, Ohio!

Thank you so much mpemporium for the awesome swap package! I love everything, and yours is going out first thing tomorrow!!!
