Wow you must have spend some time to spread everything out like that! It looks so organized rather than a pile of junk  Cheesy I love your floor by the way!

I've opened a topic for the little book, where you can see each page.

Hihi yes it took me quite a long time but I was so happy I wanted to make a nice picture of all the whimsies together Smiley

And yes gamemom I left the whimsies all day long like this because I found them beautiful, and I was nearly sad to pack them away...
And by the way, it is not my floor but my table (I would really like to have a floor like this  Grin )

Well, I love your table then!

This has to be one of my favourite swap galleries ever - everyone's whimsy packages are so great!  Smiley

I received a brilliant whimsy stash from Black.Eyed.Spyder. I had so much fun sorting through all of the items. So here goes with the pics...

Here's the jar itself:



And here's all of the whimsies that lurked within  Smiley

First off - some cute Hama bead creatures (owls! I love owls!) which I think I'm going to turn into magnets to bring some more colour to my kitchen:



Some pretty bracelets:



and some lovely origami hearts and cut-out flower and heart shapes:



A brilliant selection of sewing supplies (I love the material so much)..



And then lots of lovely embellishments/ buttons (I love buttons so this was perfect!)



And lastly there were loads of charms (I've recently started jewellery making and I'm going to have loads of fun using these!



Thanks for everything Black.Eyed.Spyder  Smiley

well today was the day!
I have to rush in and post pics quickly so you can stop worrying Freestyle!
I got home from work tonight to find a wet package sitting on top of my letterbox!
It had been opened by customs so I think that helps explain the delay.
Look at the poor soaked package!





They even added their own little whimsie, a pamphlet!



now to the good stuff!



ohhhh looky look at fabrics, and birdies and wee cup and saucer, and Giant PEg and Pirate chest arghhhhhh and teddy stuffy.

who has time for right side up pics, will fix later!
Treasure chest of goodies spilling over.



all the loot, a mountain of pretties



but wait, theres a wee bag of shiny stuff.....



all little charms and bits, and guess who is making Teesha Moore type stuff at the moment ?
How awesomely useful!

Now I dont want to discriminate amongst the whimsies as I adore them all, but if you twisted my arm really hard, ouch! these are the ones that made me squee!



I have always wondered what silly putty is, now I know, Grin
Bacon lip balm, haha! I cant wait to show people this.
A decorated wooden bead, too cute for words
Look at the teeny bottle!
I have the travel bug bad, and how apt is this tiny globe?
Teeny knight and pig, heheheh, adorable!
The prettyest key and its a magnet, and I have metal door frames, a co-incidence? I think not.
Today I decided to get out and do more stuff, ( check my facebook profile if you dont believe me ) and I get a little quote "follow your dreams", now that speaks to me.
And a pin to wear my favorite whimsies, and I adore brooches, happy little sigh.

Freestyle, you are a possom, thanks so much!
I need a coffee now so I can sit and ohhh and ahhh over everything!

I'm so relieved nothing was damaged during the inspection!! Hooray for whimsies in Australia!!

Credit where credit is due: the hedgehog stuffie is a pincushion I claimed from a craftster in Swap the Shop. It was just too cute to resist. And a couple of the items (including the wooden bead and tiny bottle) were made by my fabulous partners in previous whimsie rounds. Gotta spread the love.  Wink

I'm so glad you liked it Sue!

Lol, I won't be at all upset if Sue never uses the bacon chapstick. As much as I like bacon, I wouldn't want it on my lips all day either. It was just one of those things that's too funny to pass up.  Cheesy
